Essie's Mojito Madness

One of my favorite polishes from Essie's summer 2012 collection is Mojito Madness.  It's a fantastically vibrant and bright Kelly green (I read somewhere that this color is almost exactly the same color as Starbucks' straws).  This polish is amazing and such a unique color!  I am always a sucker for green polishes and this is one I will come back to often.  I used two coats, with a base and top.  Sunny helped me model this polish.
One thing I wanted to note is that while a lot of people have noted that this doesn't stain their nails, I had some issues with removing this as it stained the skin around my nails a bit.  It cleared up by the next day so maybe I just needed to be more diligent with the nail polish remover but compared to my other polishes this was definitely more pigmented and harder to take off.  And despite what others said, I wouldn't want to risk using this without a base coat just in case it would stain my nails.  

Ack just looking at these old photos makes me want to put this polish on again even though I just painted my nails a different color!  I wish it was acceptable to wear greens and blues in the office because then I'd be wearing this one all the time!
