Essie Nothing Else Metals Nail Polish Review


My love for nail polishes continues as I bring to you another beautiful metallic shade from the house of Essie. This one is called ‘Nothing Else Metals’. Apart from the quirky names, these metallic nail polishes which belong to the Essie Mirror Metallics 2012 Collection, boast of some unorthodox metallic shades like copper(‘Penny Talk’) and lavender(‘Nothing Else Metals’).

My Experience with Essie Nothing Else Metals Nail Polish:

Shade: Nothing Else Metals is a metallic lavender nail polish. I never knew lavender and metal in one sentence could give me so much happiness. I always thought metallic nail polishes should be limited to the golds and the silvers. But, Essie has changed my opinion completely. This particular metallic lavender shade is a true gem. It is simply breathtakingly beautiful.

The Brush: The brush is flat and makes application of the nail paint smooth. It deposits the right amount of nail paint on the nails

Pigmentation: The pigmentation is great. It goes opaque in a single coat. Two coats give a better finish and lasts longer. The brush gives a non-streaky application. The drying time is really impressive too.

Staying Power: Though, the nail polish gives an opaque finish in one coat, it has an average staying power with one coat. With one coat, the paint starts to chip in 2-3 days. In order to increase the staying power, a top coat needs to be applied or two coats of the nail polish can be used. This will prevent chipping till 5-6 days.
