One Coat Chrome!

Apologies for those of you looking forward to this post on Monday but I had to tweak my scheduling this week so I hope it’s not too late. I instagrammed a picture of this polish on Sunday night and so many people wanted to know where it was from, it’s actually the S/S metallics collection from Essie so it’s no longer available in stores but lucky for you (and me) Xtra’s have it online right now for the bargainous price of £2.99 a bottle!!! The shades I have on are Penny Talk, Blue Rhapsody and No Place Like Chrome but there are also gold and silver shades available.

I seriously cannot get enough of the rose gold Penny Talk shade and have plans for this with a glitter top coat for my Christmas Party this Friday (post to follow) but overall the entire range is just amazing. This is one coat, I did use a ridge filling base coat and a top coat but one coat and this stuff it totally opaque, it dries fast too! The only thing is it doesn’t wear well, I saw chipping by the end of the day so for longevity I would probably put on that second coat next time but if you’re looking for quick party nails look no further!

    I got penny talk and a lilac one called nothing else metals from my local discount factory shop for £3 i was super excited to find them as I had wanted to buy the rose gold one when it came out at full price but it had sold out. What a bargain! x
