Horrible nail polish! Essie is expensive but it has nice colors so I splurge once in a while, I have quite a few but this one really is one of the worst from their line. It's streaky, it looks too white if you give it a few coats, I did one hand and removed it immediately. The worst is I paid like $7 for it, I wish I had read the reviews beforehand. Do not buy... I am not an expert at putting my own nail polish on but I am not bad at it either and this was just not nice to work with.

I am a lover of Essie products and this color has quickly become one of my favorites! There seems to be two versions of this color (one a beige, the other a pink). I just purchased the pink version and it was great! I did three just to even things out but you could definitely get away with two or even one thick coat! It is more opaque than Ballet Slippers and just as easy to apply! If you like light pinks, this is a great shade - but it might be hard to find, since it is not in the permanent collection.

Although this doesn't seem too popular bc of the reviews I really like this color alot. The trick to making this color work is all in the application!!! I've become a pro at doing my own nails so I didn't experience the streak issue

I love this color :) perfect color for classy thin lined french manicures. the price is not great if you are buying retail ($8) but if you can get it whole sale... its MUCH more reasonable.
2 coats is best. 1 coat might not give you an even look. favorite favorite natural color from essie

I liked the end result of this color, but getting to that point was a little challenging. I was happy with the polish after 4 1/2 coats. I love Essie's, but i think the formula in this one was just a little too difficult to work with. There are other colors that i will reach for more frequently when I crave a milky beige pink.

This was my first experience with Essie polish and I wish I had read the reviews for this here before purchasing. I was trying to save money on manicures by doing my own neutral shade, and ended up throwing nearly 1 manicure's worth down the drain with this polish. I'm so disappointed in the application, even though the color seemed so perfect. It was sooooo streaky. I tried applying three coats and then just ended up taking it all off with polish remover. I have polishes half the cost that work 10x better. Oh well..into the trash it goes.

I have not had as difficult time with this polish as other reviewers have had. It is streaky, so it can definitely be a challenge to put on. What I really love it the shade-- it's the perfect neutral I've been looking for.

Yug! This was SUPER streaky, even on the 3rd coat. It applied goopily, smeary, and unevenly.
In between coats I waited until the surface was at least dry to the touch, and after the final coat, waited a very long time before doing anything. So imagine my frustration when the nail polish was immediately nicked, as well as being easily PUSHED/smeared right off my nail! The dry time was ridiculous and the texture which it was trying to dry down to was impossible and thick.
I DO give it 2 instead of 1 lippie because unlike most I kind of like the color. Didn't look too white on me I guess! It was slightly pink and ALMOST had a peachy tone in the right light.
Overall, don't buy--OPI (and probably even Essie and others) have gillions of pale polishes like this, so definitely pass on Angel Food.

I was dissapointed with this. I had another essie french nail color called futures french and loved it. So I figured what the heck, try another shade. This is TERRIBLE! It's thick, streaky and clumpy, it's not opaque enough to be a good smooth solid color without getting chunky and smeared easily and it's way too streaky of an odd white thick color when applied on your nails. It's also slower drying than my other essie polish. It also dents like crazy because even after an hour it doesn't harden well. STAY AWAY from this, it dries to an odd matte grey on your nails! yuck I'd return it if I hadn't boughten it at a store that's hours away from my home. Just say NO!

Needed a change and had this applied by my manicurist. This is too opaque, too white and too weird...as mentioned by another reviewer it does resemble white out! Application was thick and streaky but dried fast and hard. I have naturally long attractive nails and this does detract from a very good thing. If it's your look, this will look great with spandex leggings, fake orange tans, big hair and rings on every damn finger.I don't know what I was thinking when I picked this color and I don't know why my manicurist didn't discourage me from this selection.

It's too thick and white. Not at all sheer. The color looks cheap.

Is this supposed to be used only for French manicure tips? It looked like a light pink silly-putty color in the bottle. On my nail it looks and wears exactly like white-out. When I was a temp I used to white out my finger nails and make rubber stamp art and eraser / thumb tack sculptures, etc. to kill time sitting by a 20 line phone all day. This looks exactly like correction fluid. It streaks, it splotches, it's not like a creamy or milky color, more of a caulk-white color, and it accentuates horizontal ridges in my nails that I have never even noticed before. Plus way too much came off of the brush at one time. Even if it didn't streak so much, it's impossible to apply evenly. Nail lacquer should not transport me back to my wage-slave days of making $5.15 an hour.

I just tried this for the first time with a pro mani. It is gorgeous. I didn't like the appearance of it with two coats, so I went out and bought this color and applied a third which made it perfection on my nails. The only problem being that it does look almost identical to the same brand's "Ballet Slippers" (which is an HG). This seems just a touch different, although I can't put my finger on what makes it a little different. It's possibly just a tad whiter than Ballet Slippers. I think Angel Food could be HG material because I really love this type of shade for my semi-long nails. It's a gorgeous pinky-white which is perfection with three coats, like I stated above. It's nice with two coats, but because of the streaky nature, I would think that rarely anyone could get away with wearing just two coats. Overall, this is a beautiful polish, perfect for anyone who wants low-maintenance, amazing looking nails.

Lovely semi-opaque pink-white cream, but streaks like heck -- home manicurists beware! It's all about the salon for me with this one. That said, I really do like the color quite a bit. Exactly my kind of neutral.
HOWEVER, as noted below, this literally is the EXACT same color as Essie's Ballet Slippers. I own both and see no difference whatsoever when I compare the bottles in natural sunlight.

I have found the colour I've been searching for! This is a nudey-beige that isn't too sheer, with no shimmer. I think it looks great on my toes and tips with a tan in the summer. I wanted a polish with hardly any pink in it since I think all my polishes are that nudey/french manicure pink. Although this does streak a bit, for $7 CAD at my local beauty supply store I can't complain! I am loving this colour.

I wish there was a "maybe" option for buying this again. I bought this and Ballet Slippers online at the same time, because I was concerned that Ballet Slippers might be pinker than I was looking for. The 2 colors are almost identical, except that Angel Food is slightly more opaque than Ballet Slippers, and less streaky. The color is a very pale pink, almost a creamy/ivory pink. I like the color, and it doesn't chip easily, but there isn't really anything about this polish that overwhelmed me with reasons to buy this instead of a drugstore brand.
