Ignore The Bear Nail Polish - umber-toned brown with pure silver flakes
Ignore The Bear is a semi-sheer brown nail polish, in a shade that is somewhere between a dark honey or a light umber, with very warm undertones. This polish has a jellylike finish so that all of the genuine silver flakes can clearly shine through. The flakes themselves can appear silvery, or more golden, depending on the angle and how thickly the polish is applied!
This color is fun for anyone to wear, but we feel it will truly shine when worn by folks whose skin has warm undertones. Our current model (Lynae) has cool-toned skin, but we will be showing this on other skin tones ASAP.
