Got this originally to use for French/American tips, but I don't do that sort of manicure often and haven't tried it yet. After wearing this polish on my nails, I don't know that I ever will try it for tips, to be honest.
I like to use a base of semi-sheer white with some polishes, particularly metallics, to give them a colour boost. That's what I was intending when I put this on.This polish is STREAKY, and it does not self-level. I'm pretty experienced with nail polish, have hundreds of bottles of it and have been wearing it for 35+ years, so it's not that I don't know how to apply even streaky polish. And I'm aware that pastels and white are frequently streaky on the first coat, but dang, this was really bad. The formula is thick and gluggy, and that coat had great big bald spots. I know I'm not THAT clumsy with applying polish. It's got to be the polish.
Once I saw this, I decided to see if a second coat would smooth things out and it kinda sorta did, but a couple of nails still had slightly bald spots. Ugh.
Eventually, I started over, did a clear base coat (and let it dry completely, of course), then one streaky, balding coat of Marshmallow, and then my metallic over that. By the second coat of metallic (silver, as it happens), it was fine, so I can and will continue using this polish as "undies", but I can't imagine I'll be using it for much else.
Not sure why/how this polish gets so many great reviews, but I'm glad it works well for someone. I see in the photos people have shared that it can eventually be even, so if I worked at it, I could probably get it to behave (but I don't wear white nail polish, generally, other than as a base for some nail art and for tips and for undies).

Ugh. Clumpy, streaky mess. I don't understand the good reviews - did I just get a bad bottle? This is seriously one of the most difficult polishes I have to work with. It is impossible to apply evenly and does not self level. Loreal's white polish is a better formula and a similar semi-sheer white. I don't know how anyone uses this for french manicures, it clumps so badly!

Perfect white for a french mani. This is not a opaque chalky white. You will get it opaque after 3 coats but it will not appear harsh. It takes a very long time to dry but its worth the wait. I do my tips with this all the time. I need about 3 coats but you can do 2 if you want and a more subtle effect. Everyone needs a white like this. Its a staple in my stash and its really versatile!

It is nice polish, however it takes about 3 coats to apply evenly and it take a while to dry completely.

I really love this polish. Yes, it does take me approx. 4 coats to get the finish I like, however it is well worth it. The best way to discribe it is a milky white. It did look streaky during the first two coats, but by the third it evened out. Love.

Be patient in the process of polishing cause its a pain in the butt! But totally worth it! Such a beautiful. Color.

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.
