This color is a commitment. It takes HOURS and HOURS to dry. But the results are gorgeous if you're up for the waiting period. The problem is also that it takes about 3 coats to hit the peak level of milkiness. But I just don't have that much time normally. It was still kind of tacky in its consistency 4 hours after application. I can't do that too often.

Took 5 coats to get it to even out, but it is well worth the time. Such a pretty and wearable white.

i bought this because i thought it would be more opaque than essie allure however i find the coverage the same the only difference is the undertones. marshmallow is cooler & more white whereas allure is warmer with slighly more yellow undertone. i dont understand how one can be an essie "3" coverage & the other a 5!!! makes no sense.
apart from that, the quality is good, stays for 5 days with a good topcoat (i use OPI start to finish) & the consistency is gel-like & really good.
i wouldnt recommend purchasing both colours though, choose either the warmer or cooler undertone.

Love!!! This is even better than Funny Bunny by OPI, IMO. It has replaced French Lingerie by Rimmel as my absolute favorite polish. A milky, sheer white, it build to a perfect finish in two coats, creates a beautiful french manicure if used on tips, and wears for at least a few days with no chipping. I change my polish frequently, and I have found myself leaving this on for 5-7 days at a time because I love it so much. It is classy, nude, and perfect for the office. It is NOT an opaque, "wite out" type of white shade, so if you are looking for that, choose Blanc by Essie instead.

For me, Marshmallow is perfect. I got it because I was looking for a good white for non-French manicure usage, and this one's more of a soft eggshell, not as stark or glaring as say, Essie's Blanc. It's modern and clean without being boring, and it dries (takes awhile) to a nice glossy, milky finish. I applied a very thin first coat, so I needed three coats to even it out, but you might be able to get away with two if you're careful. For those who require 100% opacity when it comes to polish, I wouldn't recommend Marshmallow as there's some visible nail line after three coats. Otherwise, this is an ideal white that works well for a classy French manicure, a jelly sandwich, or just by itself.

This was the most annoying polish to use, it was thick and streaky. It dried incredibly slow but the color itself was lovely I just wish it was better quality.

Ugh!! After reading some of these reviews and how some people liked it, i think i bought a defected bottle. I was looking for a creamy white color and marshmallow sounded like a beautiful summer color. white nailpolishes is so trendy right now and looks good on other people. After i bought this at cvs i went home to try it right away. right when i put it on, it came out really clear and really sheer. I put another coat and it wasnt getting as white as the color on the bottle. Three coats later, i gave up. I love essie nailpolishes, but this color, i regret buying.

This color is my holy grail for a fast polished mani - pedi. It's a very bright milky white color, it really suits variuos skin tones and with tannes skin is a must. I've used for a french manicure but I prefer a rosy tone as Ballet Slippers.

I bought this polish so I could do a half moon mani. The mani attempt didn't turn out well, but it wasn't the polishes' fault. I just need more practice and to bee less of a perfectionist.
As far as the polish goes I like that it doesn't look like white out, but it can be streaky if you don't apply it carefully. I don't hate this polish and I think I will give it a try on its own because I hate buying beauty products I don't use and it is better than a "white out" white polish.
I wasn't wowed by this polish, but I don't hate it. I would just say it is average. I am sure you can do a lot with this polish, but I don't foresee myself using it a lot. Overall I would give it more of a 3.5 rating.
Update: This is the 2nd most finicky polish I had ever used. It is goopy and streaky. I applied it to my nails all over and while the final color isn't bad I don't think I will be using this polish much. Such a disappointment because I usually really like Essie polish.

If I do a french manicure this is the only polish I will use for my tips. It is easy to apply and gives a beautiful natural looking french or American Manicure. Very clean looking when used alongside Essie Mademoiselle. Generally I do a Base coat, one coat Mademoiselle, one coat Marshmallow on the tips and another coat Mademoiselle and then top coat.

This is my favorite summer color and it looks wonderful on tan skin. Marshmallow is my default shade for my French Manicures, but it's even more lovely worn alone. I use 2-3 coats to get the opaque color and finish with a top coat for extra shine. It's shiny enough w/o a top coat but I feel that the color will last longer with. It's an effortless summer shade and goes nicely with any outfit.

This is the first essie I ever bought. I got it to wear under pastels and neons and it does what I want. I think I got a messed up brush because it's kinda fluffy and looks like a mop. I wouldn't wear it alone because it's streaky and wants to pool at my cuticles. I think next time I'm going to get a China Glaze white.

I'm not sure if I got a bad bottle of this polish but it is seriously one of the worst, formula wise, I have ever used. It is streaky and refuses to be opaque, even at 3 + coats! I have Sally Hansen polishes that go on better than this one at only 2 coats. It's a mess :-(

Great white :) Formula is smooth and glides on. Opaque after two coats. Looks great under a glittery or shimmery polish.

This is like a jelly mellow white, fora french it looks natural. You need at least 3 coats for an opaque color on your full nail. I will not be buying this product again due to the number of coats you need to apply, but very smooth.

I picked up Essie Marshmallow the other day at Walmart on a whim. This is the first white polish I have bought, and I am quite pleased with it. I painted my whole nail with the polish and it took about 3-4 coats for it to be opaque. It's kind of a gummy polish. I then painted my toenails with Essie It's Genius and then did white tips with the Essie Marshmallow, and I loved it! Overall, I love this white nail polish. However, I still have more to try!

I love Marshmallow! I've never owned a white nail polish until this shade, but it's everything I'd hoped it be and more. I love this shade because it's not stark white, and it applies easily without streaks in two coats. I guess YMMV because I see other reviews say it requires more coats or it streaks, but I guess I got a good bottle! I'm definitely not a pro, but I definitely consider myself to be proficient at painting my nails.

This pale white shade is great during the holidays. I personally like it with a red design on the ring fingernail for Christmas and Valentine's Day, and a hint of silver for New Year's. It is a nice alternative to the overly glittery, colorful nail polishes and styles people tend to wear during the holiday season. I bought a bottle a while back but would rather just go to the salon and have a professional manicure with this shade.

When I purchased this I expected to only use it for my french manicures. But after wearing it a while now, I have determined that it makes a fantastic total nail color as well! It's a completely wearable white that looks beautiful and clean. I think that I might even prefer it to ballet slipper.
I built up this color to probably 2-3 coats. The polish has a thicker consistency and I had no problem with ANY streaking! I felt that it held up without chipping better than some of my other Essie polishes. I think if you got the good to go top coat- you would be set!
The french manicure it produces is so lovely as well.

i bought this on a rec from the nail board, and i'm so glad i did! i use it with Essie Rock Candy for my french manicures, and they go well together.
when paired with the Rock Candy over top of it, this is a natural looking white, in the respect that its not like BAM! WHITE TIPS! :)
when i do my french's, i tape off the ends, so being able to apply 1 coat and have it opaque is important to me. since the tape needs to come off right after i apply the polish, its not convenient to re-apply the tape for a 2nd coat. and with this polish i dont have to! i admit that the 1 coat a apply is quite thick, but it still dries pretty quickly. i dont have to wait ages and ages for it to not dent.
i'm excited to try this as a base all-over nail color in the future, and this is a definite re-buy! thanks nail board, for the awesome rec!!!! <3
