#NOTD Essie Nothing Else Metals

Oh my word, imagine I haven't done a Nails of the Day post since February. That really is shocking! I did give my nails a really long break from polish because they had gotten really weak, but they are back to all their strength now and I've picked up some new polishes. I want to start off with Essie Nothing Else Metals because it really is beautiful.


This is from the Essie Mirror Metallics Range and I was originally looking to get Penny Talk as I'm trying to find the perfect Rose Gold polish but anyway I couldn't get it, but I got this beauty instead and I'm really delighted with the results. 


The formula is super fast to dry which is always a plus when it comes to a polish. It did however show up ridges or dents in the nails, and I'm putting it down to the formula not being creamy. To avoid brush strokes showing up try not to go over the same place again and again. The brush is good and fans out so I found that I didn't need to go over strokes. The picture above shows one coat and it's pigmented! I'm loving the lavender shade that pulls through the chrome metallic finish.


I managed to pick mine up in TK Maxx for €5.99 which was a bargain. Without a topcoat the polish lasted 3 days and then started to wear away rather than chip. With a topcoat I got 5 days which is amazing for me. Picture below show two coats of Nothing Else Metals plus a topcoat.


I just love this shade. What do you think?

 All Essie nail polishes are DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde free.
