Mojito Madness is a slightly muted kelly green. More like the color of actual mint leaf lol I was really on the fence about this color until it go on my nails, then I loved it! Which, might I add, is completely out of character for me since I am SO not normally a green person. Not only did I love the color, but the application was a breeze, even with the tiny brush.
Off the Shoulder was equally amazing. Bright, cheerful, and honestly the closest comparison I can think of is the color of Double Bubble just after you start chewing it (sorry if that was a little too gross for anyone, but it is the closest color comparison I can manage). Application was wonderful for this polish, as well. I see myself getting alot of wear out of Off the Shoulder this season.
I had a little bit of extra time that day and was feeling spunky, so I added a little art, including a rhinestone for the first time ;) I used Essie Bachelorette Bash off the shoulder to create a diagonal path of various sized polka dots on all but my index fingers. Then, I use Bachelorette Bash to create a four petal flower on the top, outside (pinky-side) corner as to make sure that it was focal point. Finally, I added a tiny green rhinestone in the center of each set of the petals to complete the flowers and topcoated. And, viola! I got so many compliments on this mani and I truly adore the flower nails! I will most definitely do another manicure with these flowers as the inspiration.
On a related note... I had always been nervous about using rhinestones in a design, but I have a tendency to chip my polish, as I am pretty hard on my nails. But, when I changed this manicure to do my Jubilee Manicure. I had to WORK to get the rhinestone off! So, for those of you interested, but timid towards rhinestones, try it! They apparently stay put... lol! (please excuse the staining, just part of having fabulously decorated nails ;))
Thanks & Gig 'em!
