Essie – Nothing Else Metals is from Essie’s new collection, Mirrored Metallics. I always try to convince myself that I don’t need any new nail polish collections, but I couldn’t resist having this polish! Of course, there were others (gold, silver, blue, and copper), that were just as beautiful, so I might go back for the one or two…
This polish was a little difficult to capture on camera, so my advice is to just go to the store to see a bottle in person.
I used two coats:
I’ve never really done any type of review, so here we go:
I really like the effect the polish gives: It is very shiny in both the sun and shade. It also dried unexpectedly fast! The thing I do not like about the polish, however, is that the application was tricky ( I polish my nails by creating a bead of polish in the middle of my nail, then pull it down the middle, and then go back and make two more swipes down the sides of my nails. Because this is a metallic polish, I tried to even the streaks out, but when I did that, it created bald spots). Another thing I wasn’t very happy with was that the polish shows all of your imperfections, including the bald spots, creating bumps. Make sure your base coat doesn’t have any bubbles in it, because it will definitely show up once you apply the nail polish.
So how was my first review? Any complaints? Questions? What is your opinion Nothing Else Metals?
