At one point or another, hasn’t everyone looked at a penny and thought, “Oh, yup, this color right here. This shade of shiny brown. This is the best color ever!” Right… My sentiments exactly…Up until last week when my thoughts were changed forever as I fell in love with my Lucky Penny.
Introducing to you from my closet to yours, Essie’s Penny Talking, literally the best shade Essie could ever create. No seriously, from the bottle alone you wouldn’t look at this shade twice because it looks like this mad fugly dull gold brown color. Like, you know, a penny. But then you somehow end up applying a shade and feel so happy because it’s actually this perfect copper-y rose gold shade that can go from work to play, girly to edgy. [Side: Or my eyes could totally be playing The Dress trick on me, so there’s always that lingering in the back of my mind…. Can’t trust any color anymore. Tough world.]
Metallics is the big trend from the fall slowly finding it’s way into the Spring Fling Dance – including those super cuteee flash body art tattoos – where this Penny Talking shade perfectly fits! Ca mon, who wouldn’t let them into the party? They’re so fun! Even though, fair note, metallic shades chip faster but it’s worth the risk. Just look how precious!!
Now I know the lady who chose the shade of the 1 cent penny from 19-whatever was a fashionista way ahead of her time, she picked the rose gold shade. Look a little closer and you will never look at a penny the same way again.
A rose gold penny for your thoughts?
