Essie- Mojito Madness

Mojito1

Most Mojitos are served with tragically mashed mint leaves, guaranteeing two problems: bitter flavors from overzealously crushed mint, and soggy leaves that get stuck in your teeth or straw. Make your Mojito the right way by gently pressing on the mint leaves to just release their oils, then straining them out to ensure an unencumbered sipping experience.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 fresh mint sprigs
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ounce Simple Syrup
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • Ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces club soda, chilled
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Place 2 of the mint sprigs, the lime juice, and the simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and press gently against the mint with the back of a spoon to release the oils.
  2. Add the rum and a handful of ice and shake vigorously until the mixture is well chilled, about 20 seconds. Fill a 10-ounce glass with ice and strain the drink into the glass. Top with club soda and garnish with the remaining mint sprig.

I always connect the Mojito with mint, summer and freshness. That’s the mood that Mojito Madness by Essie puts me in every time I look at my hands.

The polish is from the summer collection of the brand for 2012. The color is a grass green cream that is applied incredibly easy. For complete coverage, though, you need at least two layers. It dried a little slowly, but that may be due to the fact that I keep the temperature a little warmer here.

This is yet another treasure that I have allowed to fester for a year alongside my other untried polishes.

Свързвам напитката Моjito с мента, лято и свежест. Точно това настроение ми носи Mojito Madness на Essie като си погледна ръцете.

Лакът е от лятната колекция на марката за 2012г. Цветът е тревисто зелен крем, който се нанася невероятно лесно. За пълното му покритие са необходими все пак два слоя от цвета. Изсъхването беше бавно, но може да се дължи и на това, че държа малко по-топло у нас.

Отново съкровище, което съм била оставила да отлежава година с останалите ми непробвани лакове.

  • Колекция: Summer 2012
  • Цвят: Лайм/Тревисто зелено
  • Завършек: Крем
  • Покривност: 1= Полупрозрачен – 2= Покривен
