It's been a while! Today i have for you a swatch and review of Essie Penny Talk. Some of you may remember that this was on my wishlist a month or so ago. When i finally got around to placing a massive nail polish order with my friends, most of the Mirror Metallics collection was actually sold out on the site and i was so guttered! But i received a spoil package from my cousin in the States for my birthday and what do you know, Penny Talk was in it c:
I'm not usually a fan of metallic nail polishes because their finish always looks so streaky but i couldn't resist the color.
The application was very smooth, totally opaque in one coat but i almost always use 3 coats of nail polish just out of habit. As with most metallic nail polishes, it dries very quickly and you have to be careful with each brush stroke otherwise if it's uneven. it can emphasize any streakiness.
The wear wasn't the most greatest, they started chipping after the third day and did not survive a full day at work on me (my work is pretty hands on). Most of my nail polishes last at least a week.
Also, i got around to swatching all my nail polishes on nail wheels today, will be posting a nail polish inventory very very soon c;Did you pick up any colors from the Essie Mirror Metallics collection? Any suggestions for a ridge filling base coat?
