Here Be Taupes

Hello again, lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful Turkey Day. Mine was uneventful, which is never really a bad thing, haha. I have some taupey browns for you today, since taupe is very popular this time of year. Let’s get into it!


Well clearly I’ve hired some sort of wizard to magic me up some fancy long nails. Or I had a several-week-long stint where I was wearing falsies, particularly these ones by Kiss which are super easy to shape and apply. But I digress!

The color I’m sporting here is Essie Mink Muffs, which is a yummy, chocolatey taupe brown – it’s honestly the exact color of hot chocolate. I felt so classy and feminine wearing this! I never wear browns but this one has me hooked, possibly because I have a crippling chocolate addiction that this color appeals to. This is two easy coats here.


And here on my much shorter, natural nails, I have the classic taupe brown OPI You Don’t Know Jacques. It’s a lot more mushroomy gray toned than Mink Muffs. I’m going to admit that I didn’t love how this one looked on my nails, despite it being so similar to Mink Muffs. Maybe the fact that it’s less vibrant made it look muddy against my skin tone? Who knows. Two coats here as well.

That’s it for today. How do you guys feel about taupes and browns? They’re kind of polarizing, so it’s always fun to see what people think.

Thanks for reading!
