Last weekend I had a bachelorette party to attend and as always I wanted to paint my nails but never ever have enough time. I had purchased Essie's Penny Talk nail-polish several weeks ago, but have not had the chance to actually use it! Right before I left my house I decided to apply 1 coat on my nails and amazingly it looked good! I was phsyiced! (no base-coat or topcoat, who's got time for that??) After having worn this polish for a week it's fading off my nails but have not really chipped. It's sorta just fading away, which is really convenient when I barely have time to paint them! It makes it less obvious that I really need to fix up my nails, and can sorta get away with it! Yes I'm one of those people who never has enough time to remove my nail-polish. I know I'm not alone! For about the first 3 days they looked perfect, even though I washed many baby bottles every day! The color is also very pretty, super metallic but at the same time subtle enough that it can be worn to work. It matches just about anything! This is a really nice nail-polish that lasts & can be a quick lift me up solution to a busy mom/lady!
