I love Deco's polishes and how so many of the cremes have a grey base so that you can play around with colors without them being in your face. Most of the shade descriptions and swatches on this site accurately show the shade, but I will say Mochi is a little darker than it appears - the best photo is the hand swatch on darker skin. I bought this planning to wear it year round but because it leans a bit darker I won't be wearing it in the summer personally. Like all of Deco's crèmes, it's opaque in 2-3 coats and easily wears a week for me without chipping or peeling - which never happens with other brands! I recommend their gel effect top coat for a gel like shine and long wear time.
