The Browny-Nude for your Nails

Regular readers will be well acquainted with my love for browny-nude lipsticks; I own far too many and they're all suspiciously similar in shade. It seems that at long last my preference for brown toned nudes has moved onto to another department: my nails. I spotted a photo on Pinterest during an idle pinning session recently, immediately repinned it and shelved it in my mind under "buy this ASAP". Which, of course, I did.

The polish in question here is O.P.I's Barefoot in Barcelona. This is, to my knowledge, not a new shade by any means, but it's most definitely new to me. It's just one of those colours that makes your nails look neat, work appropriate and also cool. The shade of this is really unique in my collection and believe you me, I have a fairly extensive collection! It manages to be a nude nail polish that isn't unflattering or boring, which isn't something I've found to be all that common in that department!

It's been absolutely ages since I bought something from O.P.I, bar this purchase, and I'd pretty much completely forgotten what the formula is like. I'd say it's fairly akin to Essie; it applies well, goes opaque in two coats and the bottle houses a nice, wide brush. It does chip on me on the second or third day, so it's definitely not one that you can keep on your nails for ages and have your nails look freshly painted. That does, however, seem to be the case for me with most nail polishes I've tried, so this nail polish formula might last longer on other people! Plus, when I really like a shade, reapplying it every few days isn't something I really have an issue with anyway. Talk about commitment!

So there we have it, my latest nail polish obsession. I've been sporting this shade pretty much since I first got it, which has involved reapplying it three times in a row so far, which for me is a pretty big deal! Have you tried this polish or do you have any other browny-nude nail shade suggestions? Let me know below! Happy Friday!

Don't forget to follow along!



  1. It's such a nice nude polish! I could've done with this during my school days as we weren't allowed to wear polish so this would blend in nicely :)

  3. That colour is amazing, and would look so good on most skin tones!

  4. I love that shade! I'm pretty sure I have this in my collection somewhere but I just haven't whipped it out and worn it in ages.
