Essie Downtown Brown

Long time, no post! It's been a month actually. I have no excuses, I guess I've just been a little lazy with the blog. But I wanted to share my current manicure because it is on trend for the season.

Last night I was deciding what color to paint my nails. I knew I wanted something on the dark side. I reached for Essie Downtown Brown. I've had this color for a couple years but it's been a while since I've worn it. After I was done I realized that this color is almost like Oxblood, which is in for this fall. You can see that it is a deep browny-red, almost like the color of blood. I know it doesn't sound nice, but the color is really pretty. It's dark enough, but not too dark that it looks black. I actually was planning on buying the Revlon polish in Vixen, because it fits into the Oxblood category. While I was at Target today I found Vixen & it looked almost identical to my Essie color. So I just saved myself a few dollars! If you don't have Downtown Brown, I would recommend the Revlon polish since it's cheaper. 

I'm really glad that I pulled this out! I will be wearing this quite a bit this fall & winter!

I plan on doing a couple Halloween inspired manicures soon, so stay tuned for that. And if you are still reading this blog, thank you! I've been absent lately but I hope to get back to posting more regularly :)
