Candy Coated Mojitos

Hey Everyone!!! Another early day for me!!! I am excited. I came home, ate my lunch and played with some polish jewelry I am making. By played I really mean glued it together and took pictures. I have a bunch of crochet projects to catch up on but I am not really motivated to do them. I kinda just want to take a nap and be lazy lol. 

Today I have a nice Spring time mani for you. 

I started with a base of Essie Mojito Madness from the Summer 2012 Bikini So Teeny Collection. I am happy to report that the formula and application on this one was fine so not all Essie polishes hate me lol

I then did a coat of Essence We are All Bright from the Spring 2012 Season of Extremes Collection. I made it a funky french type mani by leaving the tips with just Mojito Madness.

I then I used Sinful Colors Sweet Tooth from the 2013 Sugar Rush Collection and striping tape to do the purple lines.

I honestly was going to do all the nails with lines but I did that part the next morning and didn't have enough time to do all my nails. I had to leave for work and thought that with just two done it looked kinda cool so I left it like that.

The Essence shimmer is really pretty. I actually thought of putting that on later when I was looking through my polishes for something to spice Mojito Madness up with. It was close to the green that comes in the duo so I knew it would work.

Sweet Tooth matches the shimmer perfectly!

Word of advice, do NOT play guitar with not completely dried nails. The dings that you see, especially in that middle finger nail, are because I was playing guitar before the polish dried all the way through. I am inpatient what can I say.

I am going to have to do another Easter mani tonight. I decided against a March Madness mani because I haven't done one yet and df is all superstitious about that type of stuff. If I do one and they loose I will NEVER hear the end of it. 

That's all for now :)


  1. Mojito Madness is on its way to me! I never thought I would get my hands on it. I just hope it gets here safe and sound.
    You were very creative with this mani! Love the combo with the pink!

    1. YAY!! I can't wait to see it on you!!

      Thanks :) I was trying to do something different and I think it actually worked well this time lol
