Twinsie Tuesday: Essie Hot Coco

This week's TT has us doing coffee-inspired manis. Personally, I'm not a coffee fan. I don't like the taste and it hurts my stomach. I'm much more of a tea drinker. I'm also not much a fan of brown polish, which is what this prompt made me think of. However, one of the few browns I really like is, coincidentally, named after another beverage (and one that I love): Essie Hot Coco. This color could pass as coffee with creamer, yes?

Hot Coco is so creamy and cool-toned that is almost verges into taupe territory. I think that's one of the things I like best about it is how it straddles the line between the two shades. I wear Hot Coco often during the cold weather months. Something about it just seems so cozy to me! I received this beautiful brown from the lovely Rach over at Stuff I Swatched, so a huge thank you goes out to her! :)

So that's my coffee/quasi-hot chocolate-inspired mani, hahaha. Hope you enjoyed and be sure to take a look at what my fellow Twinsies are up to this week!

  1. Nice color for the theme today!

  2. Awww, you're so welcome! I am so glad you love this polish as much as it seems to love you. :) (I still think that particular Essie Winter collection was one of their best winter releases!)

  3. Hot Coco is a lovely shade of brown! I'm not a coffee drinker either...I used to drink it mixed with hot cocoa for a "poor man's mocha" lol.

  4. I'm not a huge fan of brown polish either. It just doesn't look good on me! I love coffee though :)

  5. You've made me crave a hot chocolate now! :)
