There’s something about the fall that makes me want to wear brown and beige more often. Falling leaves, the chill in the air, the smell of cinnamon cookies and a big cup of hot chocolate. Oh yes, and pumpkins everywhere!
Two days ago I showed you my brown/ivory half moon nails, and today I’d love to share with you another brown manicure. This time it’s plain and simple — one color only: Chocolate Shake-speare by OPI:
This is an oldie. Chocolate Shake-speare was originally released with OPI British collection in the dim and distant year of 2003. I bought mine about 2 months ago, and I think it was once included in the OPI core collection. However, I couldn’t find it in the OPI official color chart, so the brown shade might have been discontinued already.
Chocolate Shake-speare is a lovely warm brown with subtle golden shimmer. On the picture you see 2 coats over Lumene Gloss & Care base (no top coat).
I wouldn’t wear it very often, this brown shimmer belongs to the group of polishes that I go to when I don’t know what color to choose and I want something simple and unnoticeable.
The polish is neutral and work-appropriate, perhaps a little on the boring side. So not to bore you with it-all-looks-the-same pictures of the polish, I decided to compare it with 2 more OPI brown nail polishes.
In the picture below L-R (daylight):
- OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know?
- OPI Chocolate Shake-speare
- OPI You Don’t Know Jacques
- OPI Oh So Glam! (this one is an ivory shimmer)
Same company, but in the different order (2-3-4-1) and in the sun:
I hope it was a bit more interesting and informative than a regular nail polish swatch. As for the OPI Chocolate Shake-speare, I wore it for 2 days and it behaved decently.
Thank you for reading and see you soon, right? :)
