As I sat down to do this mani, I though, "This is going to be quick and easy." NOT! I knew it would take a couple coats to get my white opaque over a brown, but didn't anticipate that my brown would be so splotchy and require three coats. My brown is Essie Chocolate Cakes and is pretty much the exact color of a Devil's Food cake. Another yum. In general I find Essie polishes to be a little thin for my liking. I don't like needing multiple coats and I don't like having my cuticles flooded. I encountered both of these with this polish. Beautiful, warm, rich brown, but not my favorite formula. My white is Julep Brigitte, a good bright white.
I topped this one off with Cult Nails Wicked Fast. What do you think of my coconuts? ;)
