I Need A Mojito!

Hello lovelies! Aah, finally Saturday! My exams are over and I'm ready to relax and take it easy. The title of today's post is inspired by the polish I used for this manicure. It's called Mojito Madness and it totally reminded me of how much I like Mojitos and that I absolutely want one because it's a perfect summer treat. It's also the perfect way to unwind after a stressful couple of weeks. Enjoy! 

I started this manicure with 2 coats of Essie Mojito Madness. It's a spring green creme that has a bit more blue in it compared to other bright greens like this. Of course it wanted to photograph with a yellow tone so I had to alter the photos a bit to make it look like the real deal. This polish is so bright and fun that it instantly puts you in a good mood. Way to go, Essie! What I don't really like is the huge new brush. I don't buy a lot of Essie's so this is the first one I got since they changed the brush. Honestly, I had no idea and it totally caught me by surprise. I'm not a fan of large brushes and this one is just massive. 

Luckily the formula made this go on smooth, but I was quite puzzled by the tiny bubbles that showed up when it dried. I'm not sure why that happened and I hope it wasn't the polish's fault. On my ring finger I used some rectangular black rhinestones that I totally love. Good news is that I found a whole wheel of black rhinestones of different shapes on eBay and it already got here, so you will see more of these soon. On the rest of the fingers I layered 2 coats of Etude House PBK803 Coco Black. I sometimes feel the urge to put this glitter over everything and anything!

These nails were a great mood booster while I wore them. Too bad I could only keep them for 2 days because I had to take them off before an exam. I definitely need to use these polishes again soon, not to mention the black rhinestones. They are so cool!
