Vintage polish: Sweet Georgia Brown Colors - Coco Loco

Wow have I got an old polish for you today!

I've had this bottle of Coco Loco from discontinued makeup brand Sweet Georgia Brown literally since the heady decade of the 1990's.  Back in those days I was crazy about metallic polishes and Coco Loco is so metallic it's almost a chrome.  This highly reflective pewter/taupe metal shade is one I still have a fondness for wearing and it's still in great condition for an extinct polish - no thickening or lumpiness whatsoever.  The other cute thing about this polish is it's scented.  Yep, they were doing scented polish way back in the '90's!!!  It has a weirdly pleasant scent of chocolate which obviously goes hand in hand with the Coco Loco description.

This is two coats with top coat.   All photos were taken outdoors in cloudy conditions...





Does anyone remember Sweet Georgia Brown Colors?

 Until next time.

    2. Wow! I thought I was the only one who still used Sweet Georgia Brown cosmetics. I'm still squeaking out the last bits of lip stick I got from the corner store when I was in high school.

  3. Ah goodness I didn't own a polish in the 1990's as I was a wee babe! I really like this, it looks like it applies nicely for a metallic shade and is flattering on you. Nice to think of it as vintage;P

    1. I love the idea that this looks expensive!!! It is a classic shade as it's definitely stood the test of time. I'm not surprised you've never heard of it - I vaguely remember getting it from some little discount beauty store (100 years ago, haha!)

  6. I also have that exact same polish left over from the 90's and mine is still good too! I also have another bottle called Spun Sugar. It is a sort of silver color. I just discovered today from your blog that these are no longer available and that is really too bad.

  7. Sweet Georgia Brown also made a line of purple nail polishes that were all scented like grapes. My favorite was "Grateful Dead", and I cannot find mention of it anywhere.
