This polish has been sitting around in my stash for far too long without being shown off! I won it in an Instagram giveaway from Reverie Nail Lacquer quite some time ago. I think it's from the winter/holiday 2014 collection. I actually did swatch it back then, but I never wrote up a blog post about it and forgot how many coats I used and everything, so it never got published.
Anyway, I decided to don this beauty again this week because it's the first week of autumn! Huzzah!
Hot Chocolate is a truly gorgeous chocolate brown holo. It's a bit sheer, so I have one coat of Hot Chocolate over one coat of Zoya Nyssa (which is a beautiful chocolate-milk brown creme). Talk about chocolatey goodness!
This polish definitely makes me crave a steaming mug of hot cocoa. You haven't lived until you've tried my Mom's instant hot cocoa mix! Although hers is a lighter shade of brown than this polish. ;)
This first week of autumn has been infuriatingly cloudy and rainy, so I didn't get any sunlight pictures; but here's a direct light shot for you! I absolutely adore the holo flashes in this.
I won this set of vinyls from mrspoole1128 on Instagram - aren't they great? The red polish is Zoya India. She's not holographic, but she's absolutely stunning!
This is the first of many autumn manicures that will be headed your way this year - but I do still have a couple of leftover neon manis to show you as well! Since it's September 30, though, I'm thinking that the next month's worth of posts will be all Halloween-themed. So stay tuned, because I have some great ones planned!
