Ok, I know brown polish are a somewhat controversial topic. Some people hate them and cannot understand why one would wear such a color on their nails. Others love them and think they are a chic, dark polish option for cooler weather. I happen to fall into the latter. I adore dark brown polishes and am thrilled there are so many brown polishes options in collections right now!
Partner in Crime is from Essie’s Fall 2014 Dress to Kilt collection and is a lovely dark chocolate creme. This polish is dark and looks almost black in some lighting though is not near as harsh and a black polish.
The formula while super pigmented can be difficult to work with. This was almost a one coater but the formula is a bit runny.
I know you’re wondering how this compares to other browns in fall collections. I must say I prefer Partner in Crime to OPI How Great is Your Dane?. Partner in Crime is richer and more or a true brown. I also find Partner in Crime less offensive than say Color Club Fondue for Two.
As always, that are swatches under the jump!
