About a month ago, I saw Nails INC post that they now had a limited edition line of caffeine-infused nail polish inspired by coffee colors. I was at a beach party but couldn't pull up Safari fast enough to order two colors.

The two colors that spoke to me the most were Chai Kiss and Afternoon Mocha. I'll probably have to purchase Espresso Martini because I can't resist a good, chocolate brown. I figured that the two I ordered were good starts to a new fall nail polish collection.

Now, I'm all for trendy, gimmicky items so I could NOT pass up caffeine-infused nail polish. I also love a good caffeine inspired beauty product (and I need as many as I could get) so this was right up my alley.

The nail polish is supposed to help with nail growth because of the cell regeneration that caffeine helps with. That's the main reason that it's a good thing to have coffee inspired nail polish -- it basically doubles as a nail treatment!

So, I  have already worn Chai Kiss (I'll do another Mani Monday with that color soon) and that was a beautiful color and a great formula. Right now I have on Afternoon Mocha and I don't know if I've loved a color this much since Angora Cardi by Essie.

First, let's talk about color. This is a really unique color in my opinion; I want to say it's a brown with a touch of plum undertone but it also feels like something a little more. On the website, it says it is a light brown but this is a deeper color, at least on my nails.

It's so beautiful and I truly never want to take it off; I haven't worn a dark nail polish yet so this is getting me in fall mode for sure!

The formula is beautiful. I have never used a Nails INC nail polish before and was very surprised at how smooth it applied. The brush is flat and thick so it allows for even coverage and application (it's my favorite type of brush), so that's a plus. Two coats give you a very opaque color and it's very shiny. I used my Essie Gel Setter Top Coat but I feel like the nail polish itself is very shiny.

I also don't know if it's my head but I feel like this nail polish almost has a protective shield over it (does that even make sense?). My nails feel tough, in the best way possible.

Also in the collection is an exfoliating caffeine scrub and I wasn't going to order it until I did over the weekend. It's advertised as a hand and foot scrub and I desperately need that, especially with cold weather coming.

What's on your nails this Monday?
