Love this polish. Perfect everyday color. It is as everyone else has described: sheer, pale lilac/lavender. As much as I like Essie's Ballet Slippers, it got boring wearing it for weeks at a time. The sheerness of this polish gives you that clean and fresh French Manicure look. This is my new go to polish.
The reviewer below me did not lie about this looking good on people with yellow undertones. I love lilac and lavender polishes for this exact reason -- pale pinks never look quite right on my hands, but pale purples have a similar vibe and they look amazing with my skintone. Care to Danse, as a sheer lilac nude with a great formula, is therefore both my favorite sheer and my favorite nude ever. It just looks so healthy and elegant, fits with any outfit or situation, and is easy to apply, remove, and patch up. And the jelly finish keeps it interesting. I wouldn't say it's my favorite polish ever (I love my bright pastels and vampy reds too much for that), but if I had to pick just one polish to wear everywhere for the rest of my life -- this would be the one.
I LOVE THIS POLISH. I am a bank teller and I HAVE to have my nails done, people are always looking at them. Well, ladies the search is over, this is my favorite nude!
I have forever been on the search for the perfect nude pink color and never found one that looked great. I've tried every single sheer pink color by OPI, even the infamous Bubble Bath. None looked as good on me as they did on other people and GIRLS I figured out why when I slapped this gem of a polish on my nails. I have a yellow undertone and therefore sheer pinks just don't look quite pink on me.
This polish is lilac and it compliments my yellow undertones perfectly since they are opposite colors! I totally recommend this to any of you yellow undertone gals out there! If you have pink tones though, Bubble Bath is the one for you (:
Simply can't get enough of this nail polish! I wore this color yesterday for Easter and i got so many compliments. The color is very dainty and vibrant and goes very well with neutral and other pastel colors. What i love most is that the color lasts for a long time with out chipping or looking dull. Together with OPI clear protector gives you a great manicure.
Care to Danse? is by far my favorite polish! It's such a clean, classic look, just enough to look pulled together without standing out. The jelly finish is beautiful! I never use a whole bottle of polish before it gets goopy or I get tired of it, but I've bought this one a few times.
Light pale lilac in the bottle, just sheer and pretty on nails. Two coats is perfect. Healthy looking. I was worried there would be too much purple, but there's no problem whatsoever, there is just a faint sheer lilac. Love it.
Halfway through the bottle of this color in a matter of a few months because I wear it so often. Like the other reviewers I agree that it is a strange formula-kinda streaky and hard to apply. On days where it's hard to decide on a color (quite often for me) this is a great option. A few coats and it makes my nails look healthy and just done enough. Like the brush and the bottle as well.
This SHEER colour suits my skin tone. I like it on tips as chips aren't obvious. It is almost like a French mani without the effort. It is not a colour everyone will like but is good for those needing a low maintence or neutral work colour.
Beautiful color in the bottle. Doesn't work with fair skin tones. Looks a little too chalky. The formula was also a little runny and it took me about 4 thin coats to actually get it to look right.
- This was my first OPI nail polish purchase. I was initially extremely disappointed. However, in its defense, I am a polish amateur; I did not like it, but I did not know what it was or how it was supposed to look like on my nails. I just assumed it would show up the opaque lilac shade that it is in the bottle. That was not the case. However, this polish is meant to be a soft, sheer, lilac jelly. After three coats it is supposed to be the color of ballerina tights. It is not supposed to be opaque. If you try to layer it until it is opaque (*what I did), it looks like a goopy mess. Instead it needs to be used on those days when your nails need a break from the drama. This soft sheer nude will do the trick.
- I got this information from the beauty blogger "Let them have Polish!" Apparently you are supposed to:" layer three thin coats of the polish." She explains that, "the first two coats can be a little streaky. The key is to keep a light and steady hand and let the brush glide along the nail without putting any pressure on it".
- In conclusion, it is important to research the colors you want, before you buy them. I am not really a sheer, nude, nail polish, kind of gal. If I had known this, I would not have bought this shade. That is why I gave it such a poor rating. It just was not for me!
