Nail of the Day: Essie Mochachino
Photo credit http://alisnailnews.blogspot.com
Mochachino by Essie looked to me like a beautiful taupey-coffee shade with very subtle multicolored shimmer when I was looking at the bottle in CVS. On the nails it was a little different. That pretty multicolored shimmer didn't really translate to the nail like I had anticipated. Unless in direct sunlight, the polish just looked kind of gritty. And the shade on the nails looked darker than it did in the bottle, less mochachino and more "concrete" with its tendency to appear like a really smoky brown. I would say that this isn't a pretty color but a cool color. And a nice one for fall, I was just expecting a little something extra.
