Essie Penny Talk

Gosh..how does a week go by and I haven't posted? Let me tell you how. It was my birthday last Saturday! I had a good time with my family and girlfriends for lunch and then the other half took me to dinner. So yes, it was food involved but Saturdays are my free days so I do look forward to them. I got some great cards, cool gifts (car radio!) and flowers. I also managed to rip my cuticle on my swatching hand on Sunday so there went my pics! Who wants to see a bleh cuticle? Anyways I wore DS Original for my birthday and LOVED it.. I will have to put it on again to get some pics. I've also had a great diet week this week, so yay..bring on America in September as a new person (I hope!)

Anyways, I was in the mood for some bling on Wednesday..so I chose Essie Penny Talk. Essie Penny Talk is a gorgeous copper color that I wore for most of last week..and for this week I want to post copper polish in 7 different ways! So today I have Essie Penny Talk by itself as a straight swatch :) I warn you, a few too many pics here as it really is a chameleon depending on the light! This is 2 coats of Essie Penny Talk with no top coat.

When I put this on I was in the mood for bling and this didn't disappoint me! The color change from shiny penny copper to bronze and then rose gold made me stare at my nails alot :) My only trouble was application. Initially I did a standard base coat with CND Stickey and had trouble with balding with the first coat and the second coat looked lumpy. For this swatch I used the Layla mirror effects file that makes the nail super shiny and I had a much better finish.

Do you have Essie Penny Talk?? Check back tomorrow for Essie Penny talk, done in way number 2!

    1. I just had another thought! I wonder how this polish goes for stamping. It looks like it might be good for it!

    2. Thanks for the wishes and yus../I think you might be right :) All chrome-y ones have good stamping potential will see what I can do with it later in the week!
