Essie Mojito Madness

Feast your eyes on Essie Mojito Madness- vibrant, minty, green creme perfection. Essie does cremes so well, and the formula on this is perfect: easy to control when applying, levels out wonderfully, and dries to a glassy smooth finish. I'm not always the biggest fan of green lacquer, but this one is stunning, and a great summer colour. 



...I couldn't resist taking a picture with my Matt & Nat purse- it's an exact match. Normally I'm not all matchy-matchy when it comes to polish and wardrobe, but this was just fun.


And you've likely seen this last picture before, but I thought I'd throw it in anyways: Pirate Polish Salt & Pepper layered overtop of Mojito Madness. 


Speaking of which, Pirate Polish is now officially open for business on Etsy! I've been busy organizing listings for the last day or so, and I'm happy to say everything is in place. I did run out of the limited quantity of Radioactive which I opened up the store with, but I will be bottling more this weekend and that'll be listed as soon as it's ready. Please do check the shop out, and let me know what you think. Any feedback you have is much appreciated! 

I'll leave you with a couple cute photos I took of my Pirate Polishes:

Borsch, fittingly pictured with a matroishka  (nesting) doll. 

What's Up, Doc? vs. Salt & Pepper in a game of checkers.  


Down the Rabbit Hole pictured with the original inspiration. 


Salt & Pepper, of course, have to be paired with salt and pepper shakers.  


A chess lacquer game in progress... 


And finally, a whole box full of shiny pretty things!

    1. Awesome- soon you should be able to try this combo yourself if you want! Hope your parcel arrives soon! It should, as other parcels I sent at the same time have safely arrived to their destinations.

  2. Mohito Madness reminds me a little of Viva la Green by Essence. Gorgeous color, and loved the nail polish pics!

    1. Hah! Not sure it's a drink order I'd like, though (hold the pepper, and then we might be alright)!

      Thanks, Maria! :D

    1. Thank you! I was pretty happy that they were such an exact match- I don't think I've ever matched my nail polish to an article of clothing before, so this was fun!
