Only a few of the “color” top 5-10 posts left until I can move onto top fav finishes (or whatever I decided to do next). I am kind of shocked that it’s taken me 10 months to get through all these! I need to speed it up.
Today I’ve got one of my favorite nail polish colors, brown. I know a lot of people say they don’t like brown polish, but like red, I really do think there is a brown for everyone! I mean how can you discount an entire color that has SO many ranges and depths?
I realized after going through my stash picking them out that all of them are shimmery! Ooops. I do like brown cremes, but none of them made it into my top 10, which is why you won’t see any here.
All of these have been reviewed on VV in the past so I won’t fully review them here.
Here they are in no particular order!
HAWT. This is one of my favorite colors in general in the last 6 months. When I first applied it I was immediately smitten, it’s really unique.
Misa When U Say My Name
Wowwowowowowow. Yeah this is another insane new brown that knocked my socks off!
Nubar Chocolate Caramel
Love this one because it’s really different. It’s got so much gold and yellow in it you almost can’t call it brown, but it came with their brown collection so there you have it. 🙂
Rococo Metal Jacket
Here is another great deep chocolate-y brown with major metallic-ness! Rococo is harder to find, but well worth it!
BB Couture Wirestripper
Wirestripper is kind of a hybrid color. It looks both brown and purple depending on the angle, but it’s not a duochrome. It’s gorgeous in person, not as much in this older picture…
Color Club With Abandon
Another old pic, sorry! With Abandon is like a brown/black with olive green glitter. Gorgeous!
MAC Rich, Dark & Delicious
This is the closest you will see to a creme in this post. 🙂 This is a super dark, creamy melted chocolate-like color with very subtle shimmer. Love.
Color Club Nothing But Truffle
Wheeeeeee, another FABULOUS new one that I am head over heels for!
And now we get to the two pics I REALLY didn’t want to show because I am horrified at how crappy they are, but they made the list and I haven’t had time to re-swatch, so get your barf bags out…
Despite the horrifying blurriness, bad angle, lighting and just general pukiness here, the color IS amazing. It’s got a lot of red to the base and tons of gold shimmer. This is the first brown I truly fell for.
Barielle Misbehaving Mistress
Puke shot #2. Misbehaving Mistress is a really pretty dark brown with multi-colored shimmer (heavy on the silver).
I’m so glad my pics have improved 200,875,987% since 2008 🙂
Now I want to hear from you guys! What are your favorite brown polishes?
