For those of you who aren't familiar with Becca's mad frankening skills, you can find the story of how Toxic Chocolate came into being here. Becca creates some awesome stuff...sometimes originals, sometimes frankens from other polishes. Toxic Chocolate is a franken with which even SHE fell in love. Becca is very talented and her blog is a joy to read because she's so stinkin' funny.
Look at that bottle shot! The color of Toxic Chocolate reminds me of the sludge left in the bottom of an almost-eaten caramel and hot fudge sundae. Mmmmm.
Becca created this polish as a matte, but I was experiencing some awful drying time...again, not the polish's fault, but the humidity's. I applied top coat, and it still had a satiny finish rather than a really shiny one.
While the color of Toxic Chocolate is beautiful, the flakies make it really special, especially the Seawitch Green ones. I wore this polish for 2 and a half days, which is an eternity in my wear time. :)
|Nothing toxic about this polish! It didn't give me that paper cut.|
Becca has made some lovely things in her top secret frankening laboratory, but I think she really outdid herself on this one.
Blogging buds are some of the most creative people out there, and you know something else? They're really nice too. My sincere thanks to Becca for being so very thoughtful. ;)

5:30 is sleeping in for you?! My gosh, woman. I'm sitting here at 7:49 pst and all I want to do is crawl back into bed but alas and alack, I need to get to work.ReplyDelete
This does look like a syrupy caramel/chocolate conglomeration... you wear it beautifully, too. Wtg, Becca!
Thanks...I really love this! It's SO pretty. :) And you'll find that the older you get, the easier it is to wake up early and go to bed at 8:30, LOL...Delete
Can you feel me quite literally blushing through my computer? Thank you so much for you kind words Melissa! This shade of brown looks wonderful on you!ReplyDelete

Was that the reason my screen was melting?? :P I think it looks good on me too, if I do say so myself, hahaha. I feel so special that you made it for me. <3Delete
What a awesome franken color! Love how warm it looks :)ReplyDelete
I know!! Warm and sweet and gooey and...oh, for a second I forgot it wasn't a sundae. :)Delete
Five...thirty... You can't be serious? :-) Anyway, I love the color! It looks a bit like caramel.ReplyDelete
LOL...I get up every day at 4:45, so 5:30 is sleeping late. Thanks! I sooo love this polish. <3Delete

5:30!! I could not get up then, no matter the reason lol. It's great that you're able to get up and go to sleep with the sun. It's so much more efficient that way. :) Love this color... it's so rich and warm and shimmery! Ah... all the things I love! :DReplyDelete
Efficient. Yes. Why didn't I think of that? I feel so much better now and so NOT old. :D Thanks, I love this too...you know me, I love anything that looks edible. :)Delete
Wait, 5:30?! On the weekend?! I love this franken. Like, so much! Becca makes such awesome polishes. I wish she'd sell them! Especially "Love, Actually."ReplyDelete
Yes, Becca is a talented girl. :) I feel so lucky that she gave me a chocolatey treat like this.Delete
Hi Melissa, I cannot agree more - Becca is a great Blogger and as your franken shows - a gifted "polish-cook"!!! All the while I thought of caramel and there your reference was so much better than all the pictures that passed my inner eye - LOL!!! It looks soo elegant and cool and I admittedly seem to start feeling an itch to dive more into foils and flecks - a sign that the season is changing? 5:30? I refuse to leave another comment on that - LOLReplyDelete
LOL...a polish cook!! :D My sister loved this polish so much that I let her borrow it immediately. I'm always ready to dive into a sea of flakies!! Yep...5:30. C'est moi. :/Delete
Becca is great!!! What a unique polish. Geez, I'm really behind on your blog. I have been a bad friend:(ReplyDelete
LOL..welcome back!! :) This is a lovely polish, and Becca is awesome!Delete
