Essie Mirror Metallics Collection

Essie Swatches: Penny Talk and No Place Like Chrome

It's Wednesday, Wednesday....half way through the week and I'm just fine with that!  I know the Essie Mirror Metallics collection has been out for a while but I recently picked up No Place Like Chrome and felt the need to show off my picks (plus this collection is still in stores).  I picked up Penny Talk a few months ago after seeing it all over Pinterest.  I couldn't help myself :)  I've heard complaints about this collection drying very quickly but for me, that is a positive.  Both polishes in the photos were two coats, no base or topcoat.  My only complaint is that they do chip fairly quickly but I do like that I can throw on a coat or two and it will be dry almost instantly.  Every time I go to the store I still look at the blue metallic and the purple metallic but I haven't been able to pull the trigger on those.


Essie Penny Talk is a pretty copper metallic polish.  Photos are two coats with no topcoat.  The formula was good, although it did show a little bit of brush strokes.  Very quick drying!




Essie No Place Like Chrome is a silver metallic polish.  Good formula again and very quick drying.
