    LOVE LOVE LOVE NUBAR!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I have never found a brown polish that suits me! I recently bought OPI’s Warm and Fozzie which is a multifaceted brown/bronze – but it just looks awful on me :-(

    I think out of the 5 you have listed, my favourite is the rich melted chocolate/chestnut shade by Rescue Beauty Lounge.

    Nailtini’s Limited Edition Bourbon Satin nail polish that came out last year. It is such a beautiful rich brown with a gold sheen. I was stopped by many ladies every where asking what I had on my nails. I loved it so much I bought an extra bottle in case I ran out.

  5. Oh no! You don’t like Chanel’s Particuliere? :[

  6. I love the shimmer ones…must…have…

    I know you don’t use OPI Christine, but Suzy Says Da is my favorite. It’s a dark, rich chocolate cream.

  8. Oh I have China Glaze’s midtown magic and only wore it once. Maybe it’s time to revisit this colour!

    i’ve been looking through tons of brown zoya swatches, trying to find the perfect fall leaves shade – i dunno why i never looked for cheryl, because that is IT.

    Does anyone know where to buy Zoya polish online? Christine…every swatch you do of it looks amazing. I wish I could find some where I live, but I think my town is toooooo small. :) A brand new (and the only) Ulta is opening tomorrow. I hope they have it.
