Sally Hansen’s Brownstone

This has just a little less opacity than Mauving to Manitoba, but otherwise it's a very similar shade. This also wears just a bit better than the OPI polish (and costs a lot less!) The Hard as Nails polishes aren't always the best (witness Tough Luck, which still shows VNL after two coats) but they're generally fairly good quality. This one is a borderline frost-shimmer that doesn't show many brushstrokes and spreads out fairly evenly.
