Maybelline “Downtown Brown”

Guys, Guys, GUYS. Look at this! Look at this, because it looks like CoverGirl “Chocolate Mint”– the insanely beautiful, discontinued polish from like 15 years ago. This is less duochromey and less frosty than the amazing “Chocolate Mint,” but regardless, I am thrilled!! Also, what a terrible name for such a dope polish. 

This is a warm brown creme with an awesome slightly duochromey green/blue shimmer. I found the Maybelline ‘Color Show’ display at all of my local Rite Aids– but I still had to scour around for this guy. And maybe I bought three.

Four coats with one Poshe top coat..

It is so weird and beautiful!! It’s a little streaky and thin, but definitely not too bad, and totally worth it!! In the future I’ll probably be using brown undercoat to conserve this guy  🙂

Got this for $3.99 at Rite Aid.
