Essie Penny Talk

I have my other purchase from the Essie Mirror Metallics collection to show with you today; this is Essie Penny Talk. 


Penny Talk is a coppery chrome metallic with a similar formula to Blue Rhapsody. The finish is relatively brushstroke free, provided you're somewhat careful with application. What you see here is two coats. Because of the chrome finish, you might want to consider buffing your nails before application, or using a ridge-fillng base coat to help hide imperfections.


I'm really happy that I picked this one up, mostly because I have a huge weakness for coppery shades, not to mention for chrome polishes. Combine the two, and I'm sold!


What do you think of Essie Penny Talk? Will you be picking it up?

  2. Oh I almost picked this one up, but I think I'm going to wait until I visit my local beauty store so I can get it for cheaper :)

    1. Probably a good plan- I managed to snag this one on sale (not a huge discount, but still saved a couple bucks!).

  4. Oh I just bought this one too! I love it :) The only thing that sucks is that it photographs like it's gold! But in person it's a nice copper shade!

    1. You know, I was just looking at my first pic, thinking, hmm, it doesn't REALLY look that gold! You're absolutely correct. It is much more of a copper than gold. Perhaps closer to the last picture, where the pinky tones are more evident

    1. Thank you, Maria! And I'm a rabid fan of chromes/metallics, so I couldn't say no to this one!

    1. Me too- it's quite an accomplishment, as most metallics can be quite brushtrokey!

  7. Brushstroke free - what a great thing! And of course, I like this coppery shade as well :)

    1. Absolutely- and that's something hard to find in a chrome polish!
