Good Morning Polished People!
I’ve been hearing a lot about these Essie Mirror Metallics polishes but I didn’t pick any up right away cuz they seemed kinda “meh” to me. Well, as usually happens, the more swatches I saw and the more chatter on twitter I read I was like, “Hmmm.. maybe I just need to go look at them.” Well- I went and bought Penny Talk. Despite the fact that it reminds me of those stupid long distance phone service commercials, I really like it! Now let me show you my swatches so YOU have to go out and buy it.
Essie Penny Talk
Essie Penny Talk is the color of a perfect new, shiny penny. And it’s metallic- surprise!
I had no problem whatsoever with application. It was opaque in one coat, but I added a second just to smooth out the edges. I NEVER wear less than 3 coats, but I felt like it was unnecessary to even use two with this polish. Also- I didn’t find it too streaky at all.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Definitely a yes, please for me. I have other copper polishes (ChG Harvest Moon comes to mind) but none of them are as beautifully smooth and coppery as this. Unless you already have this polish (or if metallics show too many lumps and bumps on your nails… that could be a deal breaker)- you NEED this. Trust me.
Do you have any of these polishes? Are you a fan of metallics at all? And- do you know which long distance commercial I’m talking about? It has the world’s cheesiest actors and it’s driving me nuts that that’s all I can think about. Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
