Essie Hot Coco

I bought this polish when I went to America last year and it was part of the Autumn/Winter collection 2010. Believe it or not this is the first time I have got around to wearing it!
It is a gorgeous chocolate brown shade (hence the name!) which is very wearable. I sometimes fine that Essie polishes are quite streaky and take a lot of building up but this went on nicely with 2 coats and I finished this off with a top coat of OPI Top Coat.
I do love a good brown polish, what about you?!

DIY Polka Dots

I decided the other day to try and re-create the Nailease polka dot stickers I have on my own nails! I used Barry M 47 Black underneath with Natural Collection White to do the dots with the end of a Kirby grip ;) I decided to do random dots rather than in a line and I like the way it has ended up although could be a little neater I think it looks quite cute still! Think I will give this a go again with different colours too!
Have you done any DIY polka dots before? Any tips for me?!emily
