Rated 5 out of 5 by from In spite of the chips, I love it. When I use this polish it barely lasts two days, but I just love the coppery shade so much that it does not matter. The chipping issue is popular with chrome like metallics like this one...just love it so much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the color, wish it didn't show lines I got this shade a little over a week ago and I have uses it twice already. I love the coverage of this color and how it looks. My only complaint is that when the color dries I could see brush strokes and it made the color look streaky. But besides that I love the color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this color! I'm obsessed with Rose Gold so this was the perfect color. It goes with a lot of what I wear. The only issue I had was that it chips easily because it is a metallic. I feel like it paints on thinner so it doesn't last as long, even with a top coat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chips Ahoy!! I love Essie polishes and have quite a few, but Penny Talk is one of the few I've returned. As noted in other reviews, it chips very quickly and easily. I don't think my manicure lasted a day, even with a topcoat! I had the same problem with another metallic finish one as well. I also don't like the glitter finish of the "Luxeffects" polishes, so I'll stick with the regular ones from now on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wonderful color I bought this color after seeing it on pinterest and falling hard for it. Its metallic sheen is what makes it pretty but also makes it necessary to apply 2 solid coats of the somewhat streaky color. If it came out as a cream instead of a frost it would be easier to apply, but I haven't seen a shade this pretty in a metallic in Essie before; hence the review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfectly copper I own over 40 Essie polishes,and I love them all. Penny talk is my favorite because it's edgy yet girly. It looks great with light outfits and dark outfits. I can wear it to my office and when I go out at night. It's a great metallic that doesn't look too trendy or outrageous. I get tons of compliments!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How is this so highly rated?? Maybe I got a bad batch or something because this is quite possibly the WORST essie polish I have ever used (and I own easily a couple dozen colors). But it's streaky and clumpy and it is sooooo hard to apply evenly. Even with a good base and top coat, I can barely get it to look halfway normal which is really disappointing because I am a huge fan of this color. I wish it performed half as well as the metallics from Orly. But this was a complete dud for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lucky Penny for sure Everybody loves this color. I have had women come up to me and ask me about it and that never happens. I just found it at the nail salon then whoosh next week they didn't have it. Today is my lucky penny day - I found it at CVS! Lasts a long time too.
