Last night I finally watched the Possession. While I was pretty freaked out during the movie (lots of hyperventilating and covering of eyes) overall the movie wasn’t THAT scary. I’m actually doing okay being home alone today and I wasn’t super paranoid while taking a shower, haha. The takeaway from the movie for Hubs and me is to never buy anything from a garage sale!
Since we watched the movie pretty early on I was able to come home and watch the Voice! I love that show! Did anyone else get emotional when the last guy sang Listen?? I was also multitasking and redid my nails. My polish of choice for this week is Hot Coco (or Hot Cocoa as I’ve seen it around the web).
This is my first time using Essie Hot Coco and here are my thoughts. It applies actually very thin so you need to build up the color. I did my usual 3 coats and I’m happy with it. Application was smooth and easy with no streaking. While the Essie website describes Hot Coco as a tawny-sephia, I would describe it as a dark mauve brown. In some lightings, it actually looks very purple tone more so than a brown. I guess in the below photo Hot Coco DOES look tawny-sephia!!

I really like Essie Hot Coco and don’t have any similar colors in my collection. This will definitely be a go-to shade for the coming Fall.
Oh I forgot to tell you, yesterday Ulta was selling their Butter London nail lacquers for buy 1 get 1 free. I went to check it out around 5pm and they were already almost sold out. Out of the colors I saw I wasn’t too interested so I left empty handed. I still have my eyes on a dark dark green and blue for the coming season as well.
Do you have a favorite Fall nail polish color? I’d love to know and try some new ones out! Let me know in the comments below.
We should all take a moment today to pray for those that lost families and loved ones 11 years ago in New York city. May God cover them with his love, comfort and peace and bring more healing into the city.
Wishing you a beautyfull Tuesday
