I was mixed on this color, but it's growing on me. With just 1-2 coats, it's a "your-nails-but-better" color with lots of shine. With 3 coats, it turns into a nice milky-nude color. I don't really see any hints of pink in it, though. It looks streaky upon application of the 3rd coat, but once it dries, that goes away.
The formula is great. It applies smoothly and dries quickly. It's definitely a no-fuss polish. Easy to apply and perfect for when you're in a rush and can't take forever to do your nails.
I was surprised at how much I liked Step Right Up when I applied it. I needed something that I could apply quickly with minimal mess, so I chose this from my stash. It went on smoothly in 2 quick coats and was almost opaque. It dried quickly. It's a very clean, classy, chic pale milky pink, almost mannequin hand-like. It was not very streaky nor very sheer. This would be a great color to wear in an office or to a job interview. It's "neutral" without being boring. Wear was good for several days with a base coat and Seche Vite top coat. If I could give this polish 4.5 stars, I would. I think it's better than a 4, but maybe not quite a 5. I would definitely repurchase.
Got a manicure yesterday and chose this color. It is quite lovely and subtle. Perfect for the natural look and very work friendly. I really like the milky color that comes after about two coats. Don't have much else to add that the other reviewers haven't covered. Love this color, love OPI.
I had this polish for months before I actually used it. I tried to put it on when i first got it, but I thought it was horrible to use. Streaky, left bald patches, and all around impossible to work with- or so I thought.
A few weeks ago I felt like I needed a good pale pink polish and I dug this one out of the reject pile. I took my time putting on 4 thin coats, which is way more time consuming than my usual 2, and I love the payoff! The color is absolutely perfect with my skin tone. Usually pinks make my light skin look washed out, but this is the perfect blend of milky white/pale pink.
Just be aware that you will need to spend some time working with this to get it just right, it's a polish that you need time to make it perfect.
I found that using 4 very thin coats with drying time in between results in perfect opacity.
<3 Love this.
Looks really sweet and simple on :) Great for work. continued >>
OMG... I Love This Color!!
Its such a cute color :)
I was disappointed in the formula, since OPI's formula is usually great. It's semi-sheer rather than sheer and it's tricky to apply; it goes on somewhat streaky and there are a few bald patches (and trying to cover the bald patches just makes it worse). The color is lovely, though, a milky very pale pink.
I LOVE this color, but it's extremely tricky to use. Goes on super-sheer and streaky, takes four coats to be completely opaque, but doesn't look good sheer (too streaky). Chips a fair bit too. But the very pale pink color is gorgeous and looks great on me, so I'll probably buy it again. Just make sure you give yourself lots of time to apply.
This is the color Iíve been searching for! Itís the best neutral polish to give your nails a subtle, manicured look. Like similar colors that I've tried out from various brands (including OPI), itís not too milky, peachy or pink against my fair complexion. Itís perfect! One coat = ďyour nails but betterĒ, 2 coats gives a hint of color but 3 is streakless and gorgeous! I love the way it transforms my nails into something clean and sophisticated! :)
I bought this at Kroger (kroger points = gas money :D) And I rather Like it it looks pretty with all skin types and is a versatile. I can wear it with nearly everything and best of all this is rather sheer polish and when I did it wit about 5-6 sheer coats it looks almost like a ([shush no one has to know] fake) french manicure!! This would absolutely be perfect for (real) french manicures!! It is a good color for work and casual not exactly a formal, so I would list it as an everyday polish. Opi is my favorite brand and you pay top dollar for top quality. Opi lasts a long time. This polish is rather thin and transparent, but I like it!! Also to be noted is that the Femme Cirque Collection is also Formaldehyde free!!! (aka a lot better for you and safer to use on kids)
