Hey y'all! Hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July! I'm sure many of y'all celebrated with drinks & fireworks. I spent mine at a friends pool party, playing volleyball. We didn't have fireworks because of a burn ban...all of NW Arkansas banned fireworks :( oh well. I just took of my patriotic red, white, & blue to get into something more summery!
Ever since buying Essie's "Mojito Madness", I wanted to do a green gradient. So I paired it with China Glaze "Refresh-Mint" to create the sponge gradient effect with a wet makeup sponge. Just the 2 polish color names was a minty mojito. Have you ever tasted a mojito? Pretty simple Cuban drink (and yes, apparently the only good mojito is made with Havana Club Cuban Rum)...made of muddled mint, lime juice, sugar & rum. So I thought my nails looked like a glass of a mojito: the mint being at the bottom of the glass, lime juice squeezed in then topped with rum (aka Seche Vite). Here's the Havana Club recipe:
Now if you don't know me by now, I love music & always incorporate a relatable song into my posts. To go with my Minty Mojito Madness, we need something in party mode! One of my fave songs this summer is "We Run The Night". And how perfect is it that it is sung by Havana Brown (to go with our Havana Club Rum), and featuring Pitbull (who is Cuban). Now with my nails, I am imagining myself dancing in a Miami club to this song while sipping a tasty Cuban Mojito. Aren't you??? :)
Hope y'all enjoyed this 'mint mojito' post! Until next time! Hope you're having a sexy summer!
