Good morning everyone! Today I thought I'd show you another new polish that came out recently from Maybelline called Downtown Brown. It is a limited edition shade from Maybelline's new Color Show line of polishes. There were a few other interesting ones in the LE display but this is the one that caught my eye, a lovely brown with green shimmer!
Instantly it reminded me of one of my favorite vintage polishes, Cover Girl Chocolate Mint so I had to have it! The lovely Rie over at Nails and Noms did an Instagram comparison of the two here: Chocolate Mint vs. Downtown Brown. They are quite simillar, and if Chocolate Mint is milk chocolate then Downtown Brown is the dark chocolate version =) Definitely different enough for me to own both, but I'm glad to have something in the same vein as the Cover Girl because they are both fabulous.
Anyways, I'm not too pleased with how the swatches of this one turned out but I'm going to show them to you anyways. I should have used 3 coats, but I only used 2 and when I took the pictures I noticed a few bald spots that I didn't see in real life. The formula was okay, nothing spectacular and kind of thick, but not unmanageable. Next time I will most definitely do 3 coats of this one.
Here's 2 coats of Maybelline Color Show Downtown Brown. Enjoy!
What do you think? Do you like brown polishes?
Thanks for stopping by and I will see you all tomorrow =)
