I couldn't find it here, either. Sephora might have it, but I figured I prefer a few clicks than a trek to Sephora kitty-corner across town or to various salons... I got it from Amazon. Cocoa is a very nice neutral! I read about it in some magazine and they were right on the money.

HA! Well I guess it depends on who you ask! Personally I think it's bitterly cold HOWEVER when I'm freezing my butt off here at the moment I try to remind myself that Christmas this year is going to be colder than I've ever known! I suspect we have a similar winter to California.
That's what I thought. Sort of like ours also. I find them bitterly cold, too!

How do I know her nail did not slip into it on the way over to me? Never seen a waitress with dark polish, it's usually light or clear. . but I don't know. . just wigs me out.
Oh, yeah! And those cashiers who can't even work the register with them! Good grief! I've had acrylics on a couple of occasions and even though they weren't long I couldn't button a button! They're just unnaturally thick. That's not for me. I hate schedules you can't avoid if you don't feel like doing something and do my nails myself. Besides, once you take them off, your own are ruined.

+1 AND any serving staff that puts their fingers on any part of the serving dish that might bring germs in closer contact to my food, mouth or fingers.

Serving hygenically is an artform that seems to have been lost.

There's that Sephora again! I think I'm going to have to hunt them down and see if there's an outlet anywhere near where I'll be. Not that I've got anything against internet shopping but I do prefer being able to look at things before I buy and just generally prefer the store experience.
Cocoa sounds nice but I'm thinking you probably have more olive toned skin than I..........not sure why....guess it's part of my mental picture of you, Sierra....anyway I have fairly pale skin that can get a little ruddy so I tend more toward flesh pink tones. Just seems to look better with my skin tone. I might have a little squiz on the internets though and check it out.

Yeah, you and I do have different coloring. My skin is not olive, but after living in Tucson for so many years my race has changed somewhat. The tan can't fade even in the winter anymore.

That article recommended Cocoa as a very versatile neutral beige for everybody, but it might really not work on pale skin. The quality of the line is good, though. You can pick a different color.

Agreed, I have fair skin and a nice subtle beige on me looks like I should be laying in a casket. Olive skin it looks very nice on.

I think it's probably got to do with that base colour thingamybob. You know if you've got fair skin tending to redness you need blue based make up, that kind of thing. There's a wheel or something......am I making any sense?
Half your luck on the tan! Burn and peel and freckle, that's me!
I'll most definitely check it out. Thanks Sierra!

That's exactly how it looks on me too!

- Clear polish
- Neon Pink or Neon Construction Orange
- Peach or Coral polish
- Browns/Deep browns
- Deep Blood Red - the Vampy look. . .
- Blue polish

The list goes on. . .

What polish visually appeals to you/turns you on - and what makes you crinkle your nose when you see it?

And guys - you are visual creatures - don't act like nothing is up in that coconut of yours and say that you have never noticed. . . because if your wife/GF had black polish with red tips and little rhinestones all over the tips of them for a dinner to go out with your boss or colleague(s)- and it was not part of a Halloween costume. . .
Big turn on if she has well manicured nails. Clean French Manicure def. preference.
