This is a unusual pastel white-green from the Essie Gel Couture line. I'm a sucker for greens especially subtle ones. On my hands it actually looks more white than green because my pink hands. It has a subtle green shimmer that is not particularly visible on the nail but I do think it gives the polish more of a satin finish. I did 2 coats and got decent coverage but I can see some dark spots. If you are picky you will want 3 coats. Dry time was average. Wear was a little worse than average mostly because this is a pastel and it shows wear more obviously than a darker color would.

Essie has finally done it! Perfect formula. Perfect brush. Perfect colour. 2 coats and it's just perfect! This will be the last nude I ever buy. It's what ballet slippers should have been. It's what OPI bubble bath should have been. Sheer, not too sheer. Pale, but healthy. Too soon to call it a classic? I'm in love!

Essie's B'aha Moment is a beautiful dusty raspberry cream polish which applied like butter. It was fully opaque in one coat but the second added to the richness of the colour.

Late to the party considering the last review for the Essie shade Baby Cakes was back in 2010. No matter. I chose this recently at my nail salon and even my manicurist mentioned the color was beautiful. BTW my salon is not the type that says "pretty color" with every manicure, as some do.So I have good strong natural nails currently filed long/oval slight point. Trying to stay away from dark colors which I love as they eventually stain the nail. Chose baby cakes which turned out to be very unique. On me, its a lavender tinted very pale gray. Super pretty and summery while not being a true nude nor true lavender.In the bottle there appears to be a pearlized tint, reminding me of a very long ago Loreal shade called Sealily. Interestingly, this leans opague but the slight shimmer in the bottle translates to a finish that is not sheer at all but saved from a heavy matte which in this color range could easily look deathly. Instead - flattering. Typically Essie wear etc.
