So here’s the deal: I don’t like brown. Brown doesn’t like me. I have fair cool-toned skin and, let’s face it, brown looks like shit on me. I can do cream. I can do nudes. I can do taupe, caramel and toffee, but I can’t do brown.
Barefoot in Barcelona nail polish from OPI is a brown creme nail polish. No sparkles, no shimmers, just brown brown brown brown. Brown is what I’m getting at here. Brown, brown, brown.
The lacquer itself is perfectly serviceable – it applied smoothly in two thin coats, it dried evenly without any bubbles, and it was an all ’round a pleasant polish – but I don’t like it on me. Something about this particular shade of brown made my fingers look stubby and yellow. It just didn’t look clean and tidy, y’know?
They can’t all be winners, right?
