This brown leans just a little reddish - it’s almost a bronzed brown, but not quite. I don’t know if it’s red enough to look very odd on olive or very golden skintones, but if you’ve ever had any problems wearing warmer reds, you might be happier with Comparing Life to Libraries (also from the Autumn People collection.)

This color is just barely too warm for me to wear easily…but the formula is excellent! I’m going to have to experiment with toppers and sheer layers to see if I can’t warm this up just a tiny bit. I think that folks with truly neutral or warm undertones can wear this a bit more easily than I can.

Just a little bit of this, and you’ll have blue everywhere. (Similar to Ferric Ferrocyanide, which is another blue colorant that I bought from TKB Trading.) This does stain, so I would not suggest wearing it without some kind of base. Nor would I recommend trying to blend it into other colors unless you really really really know what you’re doing. (Practice a bit first.) It works very well as an eyeliner or as an accent color. Just…...

Similar to Cashmere Wrap, but a little warmer and a slightly thicker polish. It required just two coats for full opacity, and it spreads out nicely. I like using this as a backdrop for nail stickers or stamping. (The formula is excellent, but the color is just BARELY too yellow for my preferences. When I use it as a background for grey or black or dark nail art, the admittedly-faint yellow tones all but disappear.)

Another set of multichromes from Dawn Eyes! You don’t need special application techniques or multiple light sources to see the color shifts in these. They’re just there when you look! They are visible as the surface curves, so inside cylindrical bottles or vials or jars the multichrome is more apparent than looking on the surface of an arm…but again, the colorshift is still there.

This swatched…very different from the vendor photos. Instead of a lightly-toasted gold, I saw a pale tan with some multicolor shimmer flecks.

I’m glad this has a pearl finish, because that softens the orange tones and makes this look a little more like a warmer brown. (It could be either, depending on the lighting and other colors in close proximity.) It applies easily and blends well, and has a good color payoff - better than other similar shades from most other indies.
