Good as Gold

Today I received one of essie's Mirror Metallic nail polishes thanks to Klout. This perk was especially fun because I didn't know which of the five foil-like shades I would receive. Both the application (I'm wearing only one coat!) and the high-shine appearance are incredible! This collection was released last month and if it happens to still be available I might just purchase the silver shade! I don't think I've ever owned a nail polish so shiny! I think as far as favorites go, essie has just tied itself with OPI in my book.

Which brand of nail polish is your favorite?

Wow what an amazing color! I am amazed that it's only one coat! :D

How awesome that you got nail polish as an perk! Thats a perfect shade of gold! I've never tried essie but it looks like I need to!

I love it so much! The rose gold one is so pretty, have you seen it? I missed this perk by a couple days, booooo. But good for you for achieving it!

Essie and American Apparel are my favorites, by far. AA is often more affordable and more easily accessible (1/$6, 3/$15 and right down the street) with great colors and high quality. Essie, though, is well worth it's MSRP but I'm too cheap to throw out $8 or $9/bottle. But you already know I can find it online for cheap ;) Hah.

I just read a recent interview of the founder of Essie. Great woman behind an incredible product.

Essie is the bomb. I love the gold shiny on/at your fingertips!

Ooooooo, I might just have to go and get that guy. The shine is fantastic, I actually have a gold and silver I really love, but the other metallics look just as interesting!

Ooh, it looks lovely! I was too slow getting to Klout to claim this one so I missed out, shame on me. My sister just picked up one of Maybelline's new metallic shades today, I'm kind of wanting to snatch it for a try. I have little bitties from Ulta this past spring and I found the same with them, they only took one coat and the color was kind of astonishing!

Essie is definitely my favorite; overall I think I have a mish-mash of brands, but Essie is my go-to. I like Zoya, as well, and I *really* like Butter but I just can't justify $14 a pop. I've more recently started using Julep, theirs are lovely. And of course OPI is a classic!


I always forget about Klout perks and never use them! Love the gold nails, Essie is the best polish!!

You pick the most amazing nail polishes! I love this blingy, pretty colour. I haven't had good luck with Essie, but want it to work out since everyone seems to love it so much.
