about your Essie penny talk review. do you mean to mention that the polish color appears brighter on your nails than it looks in the bottle and it disappointed you specifically because it came as a surprise? because I don't own it, but it sure looks like a new penny to me in the bottle. also, streaky? it's widely understood that metallic polishes highlight the nail's natural ridges. last, 2 coats for opacity is awfully standard, so I hope you didn't mark down for that.
What I said was that the color is so light that it doesn’t resemble an actual penny. This is one of the only metallic polishes I own, so I didn’t know that that was “widely understood.” And I didn’t say anything bad about the opacity. I said that it was almost opaque with one coat, and very opaque with two. I’m not a professional nail polish reviewer or anything, I just thought it would be interesting to share my thoughts. I may be reading your tone wrong, but to me I feel like this message serves no purpose but to criticize me and that’s not the kind of community I want to have on a blog I made just for a hobby.
