Swatch Saturday: Dove Chocolate and Nicole by OPI Discover Your Dark Side Sweepstakes!

Press Sample

Good morning, readers! Do you remember my post 2 weeks ago about Dove Chocolate and Nicole by OPI Pairing up together for an awesome sweepstakes? Nail polish AND chocolate? YES PLEASE! Today I have the two chocolate inspired polishes to show you! Dove also sent some amazing chocolate for me and I have been eating them while polishing my nails, yum!!

Better After Dark: a gorgeous medium red-toned brown with pink shimmer. The shimmer is not shy in person. Showing 2 coats with no top coat. This is my favorite of the two, I have no other browns like this in my collection.

Promises After Dark: a dark brown creme, reading almost black but not as harsh on my skin tone. Really great coverage compared to other dark brown cremes I have. Below is only two coats with no top coat for full coverage. Definitely looks just like dark chocolate!

What do you think of these two brown polishes? I am lacking in browns so these were a wonderful addition and they applied beautifully. The best part? You can win them FREE!  Read more below.
