What’s this? A swatch? Yes! I feel so bad that I can’t post as consistently as I used to. I have so beautiful swatches to share, especially after The Indie Shop, so I’ve got to get through the ones I did months ago. Today’s treat is Essie’s Penny Talk; I’m wearing three coats alone.
Penny Talk is a copper metallic polish. The product consistency was pretty typical of an Essie polish; it was a little on the thin side, but still delivered good coverage. I had full coverage in two coats. You can see there are some brush-strokes, but this is pretty typical of metallic polishes. It dried pretty quickly and with the metallic, shiny finish you see here.
This was the first Essie polish I ever bought that wasn’t a glitter topper, and it’s a pretty special polish to me. It’s also something that’s pretty unique to my collection. I know makers have been doing metallic polishes on and off for decades now, but these are the mainstays in my collections. I am such a huge fan of them.
Essie polishes are sold in drugstores. I got this one at Walgreens.
I have a very similar shade from revlon which is years old, can’t remember the shade name
I have thisnone and love it as well!
What a neat color!
I have at least 3 bottles of this. Its fantastic for stamping!
I have this on now and have gotten so many compliments!
Clinique used to make an eyeshadow called Penny Talk that I wore all the time. It’s fun that I could get a polish with the same name and wear it.
Penny Talk is such a great metallic shade and one of my favorites!
I think I have this one, or gave it to my mom! It is nice!
This shade is lovely and I hear it stamps perfectly too!
This is such a classic Essie shade – it is a reliable stamper, too
This is so pretty!!!
I like this color but wish the formula wasn’t so brushstrokey.
Wow penny is definitely the right name for this polish. Very nice!
What a beautiful shade! It will be perfect for the sunny days ahead.
I heard this one is a great stamper!
Classic shade. I remember when this metallic collection came out…I was crazy driving all over town looking for it!!!
