Mochacino Nails with Candy Marshmallows

... Because eff Pumpkin Spice Lattes!

Just kidding, I don't have anything against those, especially since I finally tried one last weekend and it was delicious. You know, except for the sexual harassment that accompanied it. The title of this blog is based on the awesome nail polish that was used in today's post - Mochacino by Essie - and the candy-colored accent nails that I paired with it.

I adore this Essie polish, though it doesn't get enough play. It's a warm, hot-cocoa sort of dark taupe, with gorgeous silver shimmer throughout. A perfectly cozy way to adorn your nails this fall, I'd say.

My mochacino's "candy marshmallow" accent nails were a mint polish from Forever21's Love & Beauty line and Pink Forever from Sinful Colors.

It's been a rough week for me - I'm running on less than one hour of sleep since Saturday. And yes, you read that right. The stupid shoulder pain that I've been bitching about since late July flared up in a big way on Saturday evening, and sleeping has been literally impossible ever since. This entire week has been one of doctor's offices, pharmacies, chiropractors, massages, more pharmacies, and more chiropractors. And not much pain relief. Rather than continue to complain about it, which I really hate doing, I'm just going to end this blog now and wish you a happy weekend!

  1. I'm so sorry that you're still dealing with so much shoulder pain! That's the worst :( Loving your mani, friend!!

  2. oh no! massages always work for me so i hope you're getting some good ones. i find that only thai massages are intense enough to get rid of the pain. i've got myself booked in for monday for my neck

    A Beautiful Zen

    1. The massage I got yesterday felt great but didn't do much to relieve the pain I was in. It's probably going to take 4 chiropractor appointments and several massages before I'm well again! :( I hope your neck feels better after your massage!

  3. Oh gross. I'm sorry you're in so much pain. I hope it gets better soon.

    As for your mani. I can't handle this colour combo. It's so freaking pretty!! The pink and blue pop, but they're also strangely complimentary to the brown. How is that even possible? Oh, probably because brown's a neutral. IS it a neutral? If navy's a neutral, then brown must be...okay, I'm going to stop now because I'm getting hella rambley. What I really meant to say is that I love it and you're super creative and I love you for it. :)


Leave me some love!
