Essie Mochacino Nail Lacquer

Oh Essie... one one hand I'm SO happy these are everywhere now, making the brand more available to everyone... but I hate that white printing on the bottles. The sides still have the clear 3D Essie (which I love, it just looks so classy!). I appriciate the mass market... but lets leave the bottle alone, girl!

Onto the pretties!

Essie Mochacino is a shimmery taupe song bird. It called to me from a sea of it's sister polishes and said "Buy Me". It's a pretty greyish taupe with a lovely shimmer. It's hard to capture the shimmer with the pics, but it makes the normally drab shade that much more enjoyable. In the pics it gave Mochacino a foil look, which I thought was pretty cool.

Application was a bit meh... it took me 4 coats to get it to the point where I couldn't see some nail. The staying power is right on par with other Essie polishes.

In this pic I used Orly Top 2 Bottom as a base coat, 4 coats of Essie Mochacino, and a top coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat


The retail on Essie polishes has become a bit varied, but the price point is close enough. At drugstores they seem to start around $7.75, but at places like Trade Secret they're still an even $8.

most definately! some of my fav polishes are essie. Sew Psyched is really awesome. Their collections can tend to resemble each other, but you can definately score some to die for colors regardless
