Lit from Within: A good brown and .... a not so good one.

A good brown and .... a not so good one.

I love brown-toned polishes, usually.  I wanted to love Creeping Moss by Contrary Polish.  Technically, she calls it an olive-green with shimmer.  I call it muddy.  The shimmer is so hidden, there's no shine, no depth.  This polish was such a disappointment!  

The next combo I really liked.  It started with a color I wasn't sure about.  I don't have anything else the color of Finger Paints Catwalk Queen.  I'm not even sure what color it is.  Beige-yellow? Bile?

I topped it with KB Shimmer Band Geek.  I loved this polish in so many ways.  First of all, I was a band geek!  Alto and Tenor Saxophone, depending on the band.  Symphonic, Jazz, Marching... I was Queen of the Band Geeks!

Second of all, it's a beautiful polish!  I love different metallics blending together - copper, gold, bronze, silver - it really does look like a melange of band instruments.  Application was smooth, and it was pretty opaque in two coats. 

Would you wear any of these weird browns?
