Bobbi Brown Bronze Nail Polish ($15.00 for 0.37 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich bronze.” It’s a warm-toned, copper-shimmered golden bronze with a metallic finish. It was opaque after two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it spread evenly and smoothly across the nail. There were some noticeable brush strokes, even after the polish dried down, due to the highly metallic finish. I get a week of wear with no chipping and only minor tip wear with Bobbi Brown’s formula. Tom Ford Beauty Burnt Topaz (LE, $32.00) is darker, browner. China Glaze Harvest Moon (LE, $7.50) is darker, more coppery/brown. See comparison swatches.

Chrome Nail Polish ($15.00 for 0.37 fl. oz.) is described as a “silvery gold glitter.” It’s a holographic, silver and gold glittered polish with a sheer, golden base. It’s semi-opaque after two coats of polish, and it can also be used as a glittery top coat. I tried it over black, and it was like a golden, holographic explosion. I wish there was something on Bobbi Brown’s website that indicated this was more of a top coat or a sheerer product, but there isn’t. This shade was actually from the holiday collection, Old Hollywood, which I bought because I couldn’t resist, and it seemed like the time to review it had passed… but then with Bronze, I felt like I needed to show Chrome with it–and it is still available, so there you go. Cult Nails Blaze (DC, $12.00) is the most similar polish that I have, but it isn’t holographic. See comparison swatches.

Are you referring to Lavish Bash from the Secret Society Collection? I think the Orly one has different kind of glitter. Different shapes if that makes sense and is not as duochrome. Feels a bit more flat. The overall look is indeed similar.

I’ve been contemplating Bronze for a couple of weeks now because it’s gorgeous, but I’ve been disappointed by the high end nail polishes I’ve got.

Bummer, Kate! I’d probably skip Bronze – I don’t think it’s that unique or that great, so I’d save for a more unique high end shade.
