Wooden Shoe Like To Know?

Name: Wooden Shoe Like To Know?

Collection: Holland Collection

Colour: Light Brown with coppery gold duochome shimmer

Coats: 2

Pros: First of all I love the name of this polish! It’s so cute and witty while still matching the collection theme perfectly. This is an interesting colour that has the same weird effect as “Over the Taupe” where it’s hard to tell if it is brown or purple. This polish’s peculiarity is heightened by the interesting addition of coppery gold micro-shimmer that makes a duochrome effect! The first coat is really thin and a lot lighter than the second. It has a nice smooth finish though and didn’t require much cleanup.

Cons: Brown shades might not work for everyone’s skin tone or style. For me they lack excitement and clash with most of my outfits. Almost all of the polishes in this collection have a subtle micro-shimmer that looks so good in the bottle but unfortunately doesn’t transfer as prominently onto the nail. This is most evident in this polish. Finally, I would prefer a brown that has a bit more of a wow factor.

Similar Shades: Similar beige/mauve/brown effect as “Over the Taupe” and “Chocolate Moose.” For a richer, true chocolate brown, try “Suzi Loves Cowboys” from the Texas Collection!
