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.

I'm surprised at some of the negative reviews. Ballet Slippers is hands down my favorite Essie nude (I also have Mademoiselle, which I've reviewed, and Adore-A-Ball). It's an opaque, pink creme that is very classy looking on- a cross between your standard pink and white so it's not too pinkish and not too white, the perfect medium that looks so flattering and chic. Although application can be a bit of an issue-which is why I took off a lippie-with a careful hand, I had a perfectly decent looking manicure with no streaking. This is the kind of polish that takes time and patience to apply- two coats are enough to get an opaque, creme finish, but if you don't have enough polish on the brush you will get some streaking. So really, you need to have just enough polish and apply carefully. Once application is done, you will be left with a very pretty, soft, classic looking manicure that is sophisticated yet modern-looking and versatile. I can wear Ballet Slippers with any outfit, at any occasion. Chipping is minimal with base and top coat, in fact I find that my manicures last longer with Ballet Slippers that many polishes I've tried. My suggestion is try Ballet Slippers for yourself, and if you don't like it, you can always return it or exchange it. But if you're looking for a creme, light/neutral pink that will flatter most skin tones and has decent staying power, you might just like Ballet Slippers as much as I do :)

APPLICATION: It goes on a bit streaky, but all you really need is a few coats.
COLOR: The color is so beautiful! It's not nude and not pink, it's the perfect in between. It can be worn alone, but I like to pair it with Sally Hansen Golden-I as a french manicure. Ballet Slippers it delicate and sophisticated and I love it!
PRICE: Well, I've always thought high end nail polish prices are too steep.
WOULD I BUY IT AGAIN? Yes. I love it and I can never stop staring at my nails when I have it on.

It's a bit streaky and I had to do 3 coats but it's still pretty and most importantly dried evenly. The color is a pinkish white. Will use again.

I was looking for a your-nails-but-better-and-shinier and i came across this Essie polish. The price in Denmark is around 13 euros (10 dkk) which is quite a bit for just a nude nailpolish. Do i like it? Yes - but i also found cheaper alternatives that i like just as much. Therefore, i would not repurchase this again.

I love this color so much! Essie has the prettiest, girliest colors and Ballet Slippers is my favorite. It's super sweet and feminine, I usually will put two to three coats on to make sure the color shows up nice and strong since it is so pale. :-)

I absoulutely love this color! Its a beautiful milky white with a hint of pink and its very flattering on many skin tones. If im not wearing a red color on my nails, you can bet im sporting a somewhat white nail polish. Yes this color does streak but i can normally get an even color with 2 coats, 3 would just add to the intensity of the color and i like the fact that its sheer.... You just need to experiment with how your comfortable applying it... Instead of trying the 3 stripes method, try jus starting at one end pf your nail and working towards the other side making sure that the lines overlap somewhat. Also be very gentle and have too much polish on your brush :)

I think the color looks all right on my skin tone...in some lighting it doesn't look the most flattering. In general it gives my hands a nice tanned and clean look. . I would describe the color milky white with maybe a slight hint of pink. The color is true to the bottle. However, you have to be REALLY careful applying this nail polish. The formula is so thin it's hard to apply without streaking. If there's too much polish on the brush it'll literally drip so be careful! I read that other women were having trouble applying this evenly to the nails...and I 100% agree with them. I would not recommend this to anyone, and I would probably never purchase it again.
