One of my favorite things about Autumn when it comes around is the fact that I get to go back to wearing gorgeous dark rich nail colours on my nails. Now I know I can do it all year round, they are my nails and all but I always feel that summer should be embraced with the trends that it brings with it which is why I tend to reserve the more darker shades for Autumn and Winter. Recently Catrice Cosmetics released it’s A/W 2017 permanent line collection and within it is the Brown Collection.
The Brown Collection is a set of five nails polishes, a in varying shades of brown making them very autumnal indeed. Unfortunately I could only find four out of the five shades though I did search high and low for the fifth with no success. Shade No.1 is called Fashion Addicted and it’s your typical basic muted brown shade with a gorgeous soft silver shimmer running through it.
All of these polishes come in same packaging which is a rectangle shaped bottle with a rose gold lid. The rose gold lid is plastic and can be removed to show the black handle of the nail polish brush. These polishes all apply super opaque even with only one coat. I found them to be quick drying with thin layers and not so quick with thick.
The second shade in the collection is called 02 Sophisticated Vogue and it is more of a champagne brown. All of these polishes when applied with a good base coat and top coat are chip resistant. I found if I was lazy and didn’t bother with the extra steps of base & top coat that they would chip almost instantly.
Shade three of the collection is probably the brightest of the set and it’s this almost burning copper red shade, similar to the leaves of the trees. This shade is called 03 Goddess of Bronze. With regards to longevity these polishes lasted for approx ten days on my nails and I’m a person who uses there hands alot whether it’s cleaning, washing or typing.
Last shade that I have from the set is called 04 Unmistakable Style and it’s actually my favourite out of the ones I owe. This is the most stunning dark auburn brown shade with deep red shimmer running through it. On the nails this polish has so much depth to it that it looks like a gel polish.
These polishes retail for 3.50 euros each. The fifth shade I believe is called 05 Pure Elegance and is similar in colour to the fourth polish just without the shimmer.
