Availability:  My mom picked this one up for me, so I’m not quite sure where she found it.  However, this collection was available at numerous places in the States such as CVS, Walgreens, Target, Ulta, and Nordstrom just to name a few.  You can also find it on Amazon.  Here in Germany this collection was briefly available at DM but they have since sold out in my area.  You can find Essie, including this collection at John & Ginger.  As far as Canada is and the UK are concerned I can’t really say where you could find this color/collection exactly.  However, if you know please let me know by commenting down below.

My Two Cents:   First of all I am a total sucker for green nail polish.  I know it’s probably a bit strange but it’s my favorite color.  So when Essie introduced their “Bikini So Teeny” collection and I first laid eyes on Mojito Madness I immediately knew I had to have it.  Once I finally received it and got the first coat on my nails I was smitten.  It is a really nice, wearable green.  It’s not dark, it’s not too bright, it’s just the right shade of green.  The formula was quite nice on this and I didn’t have any problems with balding or streaks.  I see myself wearing this over and over throughout the year as it has become my favorite creme green.  If you do not already have Mojito madness and come across it by chance, I highly recommend picking it up.

Tips:  No tips aside from the usual suggestions that you use a good base and top coat.

Something Similar:  Orly “Mint Mojito” (it is a tad lighter), Essence Show Your Feet Toe Nail Polish “In The Jungle” (slightly brighter, and I read this may no longer be available).

On a side note, I still have those M.A.C. reviews coming up and I will begin doing swatches and reviews on those lovely A-England polishes that I posted last week.  I received my order from Amazon.co.uk this morning, which was a total shock since it was not due to arrive until Friday at the earliest.  So you can also count on seeing the two Real Techniques makeup brushes and the Tangle Teezer I ordered sometime this month.  As always, thanks for reading and check back soon.
