Essie Mirror Metallics Collection - with swatches!

If you loves yourself a metallic you will be all about this collection which offers foolproof formulations that deliver refection and sheen and apply like molten silk for seamless fluidity and a salon look - effortlessly.

I don't know about "salon look" or "effortlessly" -at least not for someone without an abundance of patience (so not me)!  As you can see from my swatches, every little bump, smudge and smear is glaringly obvious and there is no way to smooth it out or add another coat to fix like you can be regular polishes so just keep that in mind when deciding if metallics are for you!
No Place Like Chrome - richly oxidized nickel
Blue Rhapsody - heavy metal air force blue
Nothing Else Metals - ultramodern lilac alloy
Good As Gold - classic gold
Penny Talk - incandescent copper

I was very excited when I first saw the display a couple of weeks ago at Shoppers and then annoyed when I went back a few days later and the display was gone - I thought I had missed out on it! Turns out, it had all been moved in with the rest of the Essie products as it is part of the regular collection!
