Tired of my usual colors of nail polish, I picked Penny Talk up from CVS for about $8 or so. Kinda ambivalent on it: The good was that its very pigmented out the bottle and metallic-y, only needed...

I love this color (penny talk), but it DOES NOT STAY ON! I painted my nails very well, using an OPI nail prep & base coat, two coats of the beautifully colored polish, then two coats (thin, but...

Gorgeous color, a rose gold/copper like a bright brand new penny, but really difficult formula and it chips if you so much as look at it. The polish has a nice consistency on the brush - it's...

I have such mixed feelings about this polish. I want to give it a higher rating because I love the color so much, but the formula just kind of... sucks. Pros: Like I just said above, GREAT...

Essie's penny talk is a beautiful metallic rose gold. It can be difficult to apply but not impossible. I buffed my nails (highly recommend buffing before this nail polish) put on base cost then put...

A lovely coppery colour, very like rose gold, with a true metallic finish. On my fair, cool-toned skin, this polish is almost like a metallic neutral, which is a really interesting look....

One of my favorites of the mirror metallic collection. It is in a color of a penny indeed !

Color is so great but chips almost immediately! I find Essie polishes to be such a hit or miss - you never know what you're going to get. The quality of this is definitely a miss, though the color...

Gorgeous, gorgeous color. Disappointing wear and application. I can live with a few brushstrokes, but this bubbled on me and my nubbin-length nails are already chipping less than 24 hours after...

Yes, it shows ridges and is a little tricky to work with, but what a beautiful metallic rose gold! Dries super fast, I'm really liking it on my toes as well. It's pretty. No regrets.

Beautiful neutral rose-gold, coppery color. Perfect for every day because it goes with anything but is still unique. Ocassionally the formula can go on a bit thick, so I recommend keeping the...

I have to say, I'm in love with this color. The rose-gold/copper shade is a fun one, and it is rather fetching. I find that it doesn't really mess with my skin color after application, but once it...

Frankly, I don't like the color of this nail polish. For some reason it does not look good at all with my skin tone. The consistency of the polish itself seems thicker than normal and it is very...

I want to love this nail polish, but I just can't! The colour is fantastic, but I just can't apply it right. It turns out streaky and shows all the bumps and ridges even with a base and top coat....

Finally purchased this after debating between this and Orly Rage. I'm no big Essie fan but this color called to me. First off, I don't have a very high skill set for applying shimmery nail polishes...

Essie Pennytalk is an absolutely gorgeous color. It's a beautiful rose-gold that occasionally leans to copper without looking tacky. It's great to wear for autumn. Application was tricky, but...

After staring at this on shelves for weeks, I finally broke down and bought Penny Talk. It's a gorgeous coppery rose-gold colour, and it looks beautiful on, kind of an 80s frosted copper vibe, but...

I like the color but it is so difficult to use. The brush is skimpy and still holds too much product. My nails looked like a five year old polished them. Yuk. It also chips very quickly.
