Streaky and has gone thick and chewy. Not had it very long and aways kept in a cool dry place. Mavala do a range of colours and its cheaper. I had a bottle of OPI for four years that never went thick or guey!

I love everything Essie so it pains me to say that this really sucked. Its streaky like everyone says and you will definitely need 3 coats. I think I just prefer Mademoiselle. Ballet Slippers is just a little too chalky looking for me. Its a white pink, and I don't hate it, but the streakyiness really ruined it for me.

I love the soft colour, but this shade is sooo streaky, looks like watered down pinkish milk or something on my nails. Difficult to get smooth, even colour. You need about 3-4 coats to make it look normal. I don't have time for that - plus for the price, I expect better quality. To add insult to injury - even with a top coat this ended up chipping the 2nd day. I bought 1 bottle a few years ago, and then another one this year and it was the same thing, I wish they would improve this. I even had a manicure and the woman used this colour and it was streaky as hell. Obviously, I wouldn't repurchase.

I generally love Essie polishes and I'm in love with this colour but this particular polish is terrible. It takes way too long to dry even with a fast drying top coat. It's very sheer and streaky so it needs a minimum of 3 layers to make the polish look decent on the nails, which adds to the drying time.

Meh. This is okay but I expected it to be less watery & therefore less streaky. I like WnW's 2% Milk or WnW Sugar Coat better for nude nails. I bought SH Insta-Dry in Sheer Petals to try but I haven't used it yet but I collect nailpolishes in this color family. OPI Tutti Fruiti Tonga would be another I like if I want a whole lot of shimmer but similar shade to Ballet Slippers. I so wanted to like Ballet Slippers, it just undewhelmed me quite a bit.

The first time I tried this nail polish, I though it was kinda terrible. It was really streaky, and seemed way too pale for my skin color (I'm Asian with yellow undertones). However, I gave it another shot, and even though it takes at least 2 coats to make it look decent, and 3 to make sure there are no streaks - it is actually a very elegant color. I've never worn anything so pale before, and I find that it works best on toenails. It makes my feet look really clean and polished, and brings out my tan, so it's great for wearing in the summer. I wouldn't repurchase because of it's formula though, and I'll be on the look out for a more wearable milky pink shade.

I feel I'm in the minority here but this polish just doesn't do it for me. That milky pink colour doesn't look good. It is a streaky nail polish and I've tried to use this many times. Wouldn't repurchase.

Ballet Slippers is the most gorgeous soft pink shade. It is truly the color of a pair ballet slippers. It dries quickly and looks great when polished in three thin coats. It's one of my favorite shades of polish.

I love this polish. I know it takes a few coats to get the streaks to go away, but if you are patient, you will get a great looking neutral shade. If you are looking for a quick mani, this probably isnt the right polish for that.

I was looking for the perfect natural coloured nail polish, that also dried quickly and wasn't too pricey. Ballet Slippers is my all time favourite natural polish! It looks fantastic with a tan and I can paint my nails in a rush knowing that it will dry quickly and looks great. You have to make sure you have plenty of product on the brush otherwise it will go streaky as others have mentioned.
Overall, an excellent natural nail polish that is a good price and dries quickly. Highly recommended. Give it a shot, you may love it! I'm definitely going to try out more Essie colours.
