Old bottles of polish: Guerlain N°3 Brun

Hello everyone!

Guerlain N°3 Brun is one of my oldest bottles of nail polish. You might remember it from my vintage collection post. This is a dark brown creme polish with a subtle shimmer. You can see it on the photos that are taken in the sun. I hadn't used it for years, and the bottle seemed empty. But after adding thinner, the polish behaved like a one coater. So I added more, and then I noticed the shimmer! :-) I'm wearing 2 coats+ Seche Vite. The photos of the thumb were taken before top coat. Look how shiny it is! I don't know if this polish is a teenager or a young adult. Please let me know if you remember/ know.

I'll start with swatches, and then you can take a closer look at the bottle. (I'm sorry about my nail shape. It's because three nails on this hand are broken.)

Now I never wear brown polish. But a long time ago I used brown a lot. And it felt very strange when I was going to paint my nails, but now I like it again.

The bottle:

There's no text on the other side.

Sadly Guerlain is on the list of brands that are tested on animals, so I don't recommend buying from them. I just wanted to show you my vintage nail polish. And I wanted to show it before you see the nail art I made for the GOT Polish Challenge.

What do you think about this polish? Do you like brown nail polish or do you hate it?

♥ If you know anything about Guerlain N°3 Brun, please let me know! ♥



  1. It's interesting 1-2 years ago I hated brown polish - but after I sarted collecting Chanel - I started loving them LOL
    And this is no exception, rich and chocolate-ly :)

    1. Yes, that's a good description! :-) My taste has also changed after I started collecting nail polish.

  2. I like brown polishes in general and this shade is really classy and elegant!

    1. Thank you! :-) I think it's classy and elegant too. I really like it.

  3. mmmm looks like melted chocolate <3
