Maybelline Cocoa Motion- What I Wore When I Had To Pretend I Was A Grown Up

I had a meeting with my son's school today. He's a good student, but has been having horrible health issues for the last two years, and as a result, we're all ready to pull our hair out- parents, teachers, administrators, and kiddo himself. Today we met to see what we can do to help him get the education he needs. It was very stressful just planning for it, and I realized an hour and a half before we had to leave that the near-fluorescent red I was wearing might not actually be appropriate for the meeting.

I wanted to appear professional, responsible, and as someone to be taken seriously. Neon just would not do. I dug through my untried polishes box and found this lovely creme polish I won from the Dainty Darling Digits Go Green giveaway. Yes, this would absolutely do.

Since I didn't have much time, I skipped base coat. I did two very thin coats of Cocoa Motion and was struck by what a pretty, creamy cocoa brown this was. It went on like a dream, too, with very little need for cleanup. Maybe it's the brush, but this polish was a joy to apply. The two coats were also nicely opaque, and dried quickly. I was very pleased with this color, especially with how it looked against my skin tone.

Thankfully, today's meeting went well. It was stressful, but we all had the same goals in mind, and I think we made a good decision for my son. Is it because of this nail polish?

Probably not, but it sure made me feel more secure!
