Hard Candy Cocoa Smore

Hey everybody!  Okay...picture it:  It's 1976.  A little girl is awake early on a Saturday morning, watching The Bugs Bunny Show with her big brother and eating Count Chocula.  She's rooting for Wile E. Coyote to finally catch that smart alack Road Runner when she notices that her questionably nutritious breakfast has reached the pinnacle of its deliciousness...when the cereal is gone and that unbelievably tasty, brownish-grayish milk is there for the slurping.

Fast forward to 2013...This same girl is all grown up.  She has put off that Wal-Mart trip for as long as possible, but she just used the very last drop of hairspray this morning, so she has to go.  She saunters down the cosmetics aisles...you know, just looking...when she sees it!  It's the new Hard Candy polishes she has been waiting for!!  Her eyes are immediately drawn to Cocoa Smore, from the Candy Sprinkles collection, when it hits her:  This polish looks just like Count Chocula milk!!!

Hard Candy Cocoa Smore


I'm not kidding...it's that same delicious cocoa color.  Well, the artificial kind.   I think it's gorgeous, and not just because it makes me hungry.  

I'm not sure whether or not it's fortified with 8 vitamins and minerals...but look how pretty!

I used two coats in the photos, and there was plenty of black and white glitter to go around.  That combined with the faux chocolate base makes it an interesting neutral in my opinion.  I wore it to the office today, and it didn't look crazy at all.  It held up well on me...I didn't even have the usual immediate tip wear!  And the fact that the name is "smore" rather than "s'more" is only slightly irritating. :)

Look how creamy!

So, it you're in the market for a different twist on the neutral polish, I highly recommend Hard Candy Cocoa Smore.  It's interesting and fun without being "out there." :)  I wonder if Hard Candy makes one that looks like Franken Berry??  He had little strawberries for fingernails, remember?!

Warning:  *GRATUITOUS COCOA SHOT*



Take care, ya'll! :)
