Essie: Nothing Else Metals

Hi. My name is Kristina and I am obsessed with nail polish. My addiction love for nail polish is so bad that I decided to give it up for lent...buying new ones that is. So how am I doing with that? Ummm....I struggled for lasted 2 weeks! So 14 days out of 40...that's almost 50% of the way! (Pathetic I steps.)

Anyways, I had a coupon for $2 off an Essie polish at Rite Aid so of course I had to use it. I'm not the biggest fan of Essie because I find the formula to be streaky but I'm all about giving things another chance. I have always loved the colors that Essie comes out with and Nothing Else Metals caught my eye. It's a shiny, metal finish polish that has a silver lavender hue to it.

The thing with metal polishes is they all tend to be streaky and show any imperfection you may have on your nail...this unfortunately was no different. I love the color of this polish and how it looks from far away, but up close, ugh. Every time I look at my nails with this polish on, I am reminded that I should take better care of them...maybe drink more milk, buy a nail buffer...ugh. Yea, so this polish is going back (Love Rite Aid's return policy) and the metal polish hunt continues.
*Best metal like polish I have found so far is from Fergie's line for Wet n Wild which I swatched here: Going Platinum.

2 coats of polish were applied in these photos. The formula dried quickly and lasted a solid 4 days with no chipping.

Here are some close up shots where u can see the streaking, bubbling, and all my nail imperfections highlighted:
