I was thrilled to learn that Klout was sending me a random color from Essie’s new Mirror Metallics Collection! If you aren’t familiar with Klout, it is a program that awards “perks” to accounts they feel are influential in a particular topic. This is the second time I’ve earned a perk from Essie!
For the Mirror Metallics Collection, there is a total of five colors. Names and descriptions of each color as detailed in my press kit are described below:
- no place like chrome — richly oxidized nickel
- blue rhapsody — heavy metal air force blue
- nothing else metals — ultramodern lilac alloy
- penny talk — statement-making incandescent copper
- good as gold — pure, rock-solid classic
I was so excited when “no place like chrome”, silver in color, arrive at my doorstep. While pinks and reds are nice, I really like the bold and daring look of the grey color. One of my favorite aspects about Essie is that their polishes are DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene free. This pretty much means there is no risk of your nails “rotting” underneath your natural nails. Definitely a huge bonus!
I love that the nail polish dries so fast! It almost seemed that as soon as I was done applying one coat to my nails, I was ready to brush on a second coat without risking blotting or messing up the first coat. While I love this color, and the other metallics offered, I don’t feel it lasts as long as other Essie collections. I didn’t want to use a top coat because I felt it took away from that high-impact look of this collection and gave the polish and more glossy look. Without a top coat,the polish was chipping within a day.

I received these products complimentary via Klout. This is 100% my own honest opinion. No one has influenced me otherwise and I was in no way compensated financially. This review is solely based on my own experience with this product.
