NOTD: Essie "hot cocoa"




Essie "hot cocoa" from winter 2010 collection...a true milk chocolate color, lovelyyyy formulation, the seche vite top coat made the color a bit darker



Milano hardrock jewel collection, google it! this color is "gold" the closest dupe to sephora by opi "only gold for me" (which is sold out!) can be found at your local CVS on promotional display! will do a holiday NOTD with it :)



my current holiday obsession!!! if you can, pick some up!! delicious! tastes like girl scouts' thin mints!


hope you're all warm and well!!

I just saw that Milani NP at my CVS today, I was looking for the other glitter one that is the dupe to Deb Lippman Happy Birthday. It has green & red glitters.
The Hot Chocolate looks good on you. Did you get the Smokin Hot also from the winter collection?

WHAAAAAAAA they have candy cane Oreos?! That's so cool!

hanidee said...

Lovely colors! Thanks for the swatches(:

Pretty NOTD! I cannot find any Milani (newest glitter collection) in stores sadly, bah! Never tried the flavored Oreos because imagine they are as good and addictive as the normal. :)

@K i know! i hate how it makes things darker, too, and the bottle dries up half way, but i just like the dry fast and how shiny it is

@cleung341 omg! that other glitter one is pretttty! but it's sold out :( it probably went faster than the gold one! i have the smokin' hot! i posted that in my last blog post :)

@steph they do!! for the holidays! so yummy!

@kalmo awee try again at other CVS, babe, it's promotional, so it's limited, suppose to be permanent in feb 2011!

I am in love with "hot coco" ... just got it in the mail from a secret santa and put it on immediately. I just posted a pic of it too (2 coats + Seche Vite) but it looks purpleish-taupe, nowhere as chocolaty as yours...I must need one more coat!

As always, I enjoy your NOTDs.

giang said...

@snnoshie thanks! you should try! it's a good formulation!

@petiteasiangirl thanks for checking out my blog and NOTDs :) and I agree with you on the Essie.. the color usually doesn't show true to the bottle :( luckily the nail polish supply store I go to here in Cali has the swatches on the plastic nails.. I'm gonna go look at your swatch when I get home! xox
