Brown is definitely one of the least represented colors in my nail polish stash. I've never been much of a brown fan, but for some reason I was really craving a great brown . When Zoya was having their recent promo I picked up this brown, and I'm happy that I did.
Angelina is a blackened rich chocolate brown creme.
I will admit that in some lighting this will look black, but it has a softer touch than a true black. Outdoors or in brighter lighting you can really see the chocolate tones. I really love this polish. I find fall to have some of the most predictable and repeated colors of any season as far as nail polish. I have tons of muted and deep purples, reds, and blues. Brown...not so much. I think this is a nice variation from those typical colors, and a nice transition from a standard black creme. This is also really glossy. This is not a flat or blah brown. The shine and the richness of the color give it depth. It's a very sophisticated color. I approve!
