The one with Milani polishes - Brown edition :)

Hello Monday! Today I've got another Milani spam post for you - this time showcasing some of the brown polishes that I have! I do like brown polishes...I just don't see myself wearing them a lot in every day life, if that makes sense. I typically just them use for (failed) nail art. hehe I love the formula on Milani polishes. I haven't had a bit of trouble with any of the ones I've tried.

Dark Coffee is a rich, deep brown. If I had been careful, I could have made this a one-coater! But I got a little swipe happy and brushed too many times, leaving some bald spots. This is the perfect color of dark chocolate. Seriously makes me wanna take a bite out of my nail...
Next up to Teddy Brown, a nice tan latte-esque color. It's very subtle, and sort of flat (but it dries very shiny!)... Again, could've been a one coat polish if I'd been more careful with application. It's very densely pigmented, which is a good thing :)
Chocolate Sprinkles is a deep brown base packed with a golden, possibly bronze-ish, shimmer. The formula on this one was thinner than with the cremes, but not so bad that it was an issue with application. It may have made it easier to stack the shimmer, to really make it pop off the nail :)
Do you have any of these polishes? Do you have a favorite brown polish? I'm always partial to the melted chocolate look of Zoya Dea :)
