I have tried a LOT of polishes looking for a pink, healthy, "natural" shade: Essie Mademoiselle, OPI Bubble Bath, Essie Sugar Daddy, etc. But I have dark, vertical ridges in my nails and the slight touch of frostiness in those shades just served to emphasize it. This jelly-like polish tints my nails a really pretty, healthy-looking pink in just two coats plus adds lots of shine. I think I finally found my go-to "natural" color.

This polish deceived me in the store. I wish I'd looked on here first, or at least googled some swatches, which is what I normally do before I buy something.. I'd been looking for a nice pink jelly in Ulta when I stumbled across this, and thought PERFECT! Of course when I got home to try it out, it took FIVE coats to get it anything close to pink-tinged. I can't even imagine how many coats it would take to get close to the bottle color. I dont typically like the whole clear-manicure thing, so I save this for putting under glitters and french manicures. I just wish I'd known how sheer this was before dropping $8

Love Essie nail colors, but this is wayyy too sheer to like. It barely even tints your nails. Definitely swapping this one.

I love this nail polish a lot. It's a translucent shiny pink showing the natural colour of my nails. I personally don't like opaque solid nail colours but at the same time I want my nails look shiny and glossy with a hint of pale pink. This nail polish does it very well. I purchased it when it was on sale for $4.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. I will definitely re-purchase.

Before purchasing this color, I read the reviews on here and knew what I was getting into.
Buyer beware: the color in the bottle is nothing like how it looks applied. The polish goes on nearly clear but builds (with 2 to 3 coats) into a beautiful and healthy looking pink-tinted-clear. You really cannot beat the shine that this polish gives. I considered for a moment not even adding a top coat. Applies very nicely. Dries quickly. These were all things that I was looking for with this polish. I am very happy with my purchase and would buy again.
This polish reminds me a lot of the polishes I was allowed to wear as a child. Clear with the ever so slight tint of pink/red/etc.
If you're looking for something very natural and um, polished looking, then this is the polish for you. If you're looking for an opaque pink, stay away. I don't think it can be put any more simply than that.

I have an older bottle it seems - bought it 2 years ago - it's not blue based pink but rather yellow based, which makes my nails look dirty. Used it for french mani awhile back and it came off in strips! Essie rarely disappoints, but this is the worst nail polish I used, absolutely no redeeming qualities: no color, no staying power.

According to Essie's website, the Pink Glove Service Nail Polish is a "flirty translucent with a hint of petal pink." Is it translucent on my nail? Absolutely. A hint of petal pink? Not sure since my nails are quite pink to start with. This is a great nail polish to show off your natural healthy nails. If your nails are pale, maybe the "hint of petal pink" will come through and make your nails look healthy. This is also a great nail polish if you are low maintenance with your nails since any sign of chipping will not be obvious. Big prop on no contains of Formaldehyde, DBP or Toluene!

I was attracted to this polish when I saw the color at ULTA; looked like a glossy muted rosey shade. When applied it comes out very natural looking with a very tiny amount of color. It is very smooth, shiny-glossy, & long-lasting.

I bought this looking for a light pink...In two coats with a base, I have a pinky colored clear...I can definitely tell it is pink and the color is dark enough to meet the needs I have for a light pink...I am pleased and will definitely buy this again...

I really how this color looks in the bottle. On my hands it takes a lot of work to get the color because it's so sheer. I put 2 coats of PGS on top Essie's Marshmallow and got a very soft whiteish pinkish color. Makes my hands look well groomed. I like it.

this nail polish was pretty misleading in the bottle, but im not disappointed i got it. while its not at all pink (to test I put on four coats, and its still clear to my eyes) it goes on much better than the essie top coat i bought... so now i just use it for that. when it runs out, i think ill just buy a different topcoat, but until then this one is serving a purpose, though not the one I intended.

Although this polish appears to be a pretty, dainty, neutral bubblegum pink jelly, on the nails it is nothing more than a clear gloss (1 coat) or faintly pink gloss (2-3 coats). The final color does not look anything like what's in the jar and not nearly as pretty. I applied a sheer pink basecoat and *3* thin coats of Pink Glove Service and 1 coat of Seche Vite . . . and ended up with nails that in some lights has a natural, sometimes-slightly-pink sometimes-clear tint (that wasn't worth the work it took to get that "color") and in other lights makes my fingers look pink in a bad way, like I just washed my hands in hot water.
So yeah, I just spent $8 on a clear nail polish =/ I'll be returning this one.

I did a french manicure this past weekend and I used Pink Glove Service. It turned out great! Yes, it's very sheer almost like clear with a light pink tone. That's exactly what I hoped it would be because I paint my tips white first then I put a coat of this over the top. It looks great. Usually when I put a pink tinted color over the white tips it ruins it by making the tips a strange shade of pink. Not this....just perfect. I am so glad I picked it up at TJ Maxx for $3.99. I also used Limo Scene by Essie for the white tips.

This is the first Essie polish that I haven't loved. I was hoping for more of a color, but after 3 coats it was just very, very slightly tinted pink. In the bottle it looks much better, and if I could get it to that color, it would be great but it's so sheer that it barely makes a difference on my nails.

I really like this color. Yes, it is transparent pink but I also beg to differ that it doesn't show up. After my basecoat I apply a layer of it then I paint on my french tips in white. Then I layer two coats of this. It gives the white a slight pink cast and just looks like a natural yet fun sheer pink manicure. I rather like it.

I totally agree with the reviewer below. This is basically a clear nail polish. It might be useful for a french manicure, but I do not see its appeal for anything else. Application is OK and staying power is average. I would not repurchase as I already have top and base coats that basically give the same effect.

I'm a bit puzzled by this colour. It's so sheer it's almost invisible, even after three coats. What's the point of a polish like this? Why not just slap on a bit of topcoat or a clear polish if you want a bit of shine? Some might say that the problem here is mine - that essentially I am at heart a six year old who wants colour and shimmer and sparkle, and those people would be right: my nail polish motto is pretty much "no glitter, no point", and yet I still feel the polish has to accept some of the blame. It's just blah and bland and insipid. I have nothing against sheer pink in principle - my all time fave colour is OPI's Altar Ego - I just hate this kind of bland, no-heart, so-understated-it-has-no-personality type colour. AND it takes forever to dry.

I love this polish -- I love a sheer pinkish color that makes my short nails look shiny and healthy. My favorite used to be Orly Beverly Hills Plum, but this Essie color lets your white tips show through and gives you a clean look. It goes on streak free and I find that two coats give me a glossy clean look.

Pink Glove Service is a great "clear with a hint of rosey pink". You don't need a basecoat or topcoat with this, and 3 coats gives me a nice tint.
This is great if you want your nails/hands to look healthy and natural.

I was disappointed in this one. I knew from reviews it would be sheer to clear. But it is not very glossy even when I put top coat on.
I like my nails to be pale and super glossy.
The best I've found is Essie Allure with a top coat on it.
