I'm loving this subtle gray-purple polish. The sheerness doesn't bother me a bit and it applied very smoothly with no streaks or brushstroke marks - two coats was just enough to boost the shimmer and impart a milky not-quite-opaque translucency. In low light this is a pale fog gray but it has just a hint of very fine purple/blue flash in the light. A perfect color for winter and early spring, when you want a break from vampy shades but it's not quite time to bust out the full-on pastels. Bet this would look amazing layered over China Glaze Pelican or any other light gray polish.

Great neutral nail polish with "cherry on top" ;)
I was expecting it to be sheer when I got it. I try to keep my nails looking very subtle at work.
It is greyish beige with iridescent pink and blue pearl through it. I wore it for 5 days straight and it just started chipping!!! I didn't have any top or base coat either!
It went on very smooth and I've achieved the look I wanted in just 2 coats. Drying time was pretty good too as the formula was quite thin!
Definitely recommend this polish if you want to try something neutral yet not you typical-french-manicure pink!

This was horrible. I'm usually an OPI girl but bought this because I loved the color in the bottle--it's a lovely iridescent lavender.
Once I applied it, however, it was incredibly sheer and wasn't as lavender as it appeared in the bottle--it was more of a grayish-lavender with a little sheen to it. Not bad, but not what it appeared to be in the bottle, even after 2 or 3 coats.
The formula, however, is what makes this 1-lippie worthy. It took FOREVER to dry (30 minutes after I applied it I managed to smudge it). It chipped like crazy even under a top coat. I'm talking about BIG chunks--not little dings at the tips of my nails.
I took this off after one day and I'm considering returning it to Ulta. Not sure if I got a bad bottle or this brand just isn't for me.

Love this color! My nails have a natural purplish color, so this polish gives them that natural but better look for me. Love it. :-)

I like Main Squeeze for a subtle mani with an oomph. It has a sheer grey base with purple iridescent shimmer suspended into. I love that's it's not your typical sheer-sheer polish but loath it at the same time. I love it for it's uniqueness and loath it because it really needs a second (or third) coat. If I'd only do one coat my nails would look dirty. As if I'd soaked my nails in paint first and then tried to scrub if off and failed miserably. It looks nice over an opaque grey polish, like China Glaze Recycle or Essie Chinchilly.
Other than that it's definately a color I don't have in my collection.

Main Squeeze is a sheer lilac from Essie's 2010 Wedding Collection. Main Squeeze initially looks like a pale dove grey in the bottle, but it definitely shows up on your nail as lovely pastel lilac. It has a beautiful sheen that is both subtle and edgy at the same time. The sheen may look almost iridescent in bright light, but it is subtle enough to look sophisticated, not tacky or cheap. After all, it is from Essie's WEDDING collection. I keep my nails short, and I am loving this color on my nails for spring. It is a nice change from my usual sheer pinks and nudes.
