Cute as a Button is a coral-leaning pink, cream polish. On the pictures I've seen, it looked a muted, retro colour, so that's what I expected, but on me it looked more vibrant/bright. This polish is a good option for beach holidays or pedis. The formula was not my favourite. I used 3 coats and on my ridged nails I could still see thinner patches. It is not self-levelling. Overall, I like this polish, but I own dozens of corals with much better formula.

This is a very cute retro coral cream. This polish wears like iron on me, even though a lot of other Essie polishes do not. This is one of my favorite pedi colors due to the vibrancy and the wear.

This is a fun bright color for summer. I finally bought it after borrowing it from a friend several times. I have dark hair and fair skin and it's very flattering on me.

This is a bright, coral nail polish. It is a pink-red based coral rather than an orange based one and looks good on my NC20 skintone hands. This isn't the most unique colour, but it applies easily and the formula is nice and creamy, however it takes a bit longer to dry than some of my other Essie colours. I use three coats for full opacity, you could get away with two if seeing the nail line doesn't bother you, however I would definitely describe this polish as full-coverage rather than sheer. It is a fun, fruity colour for Summer but it is not special enough for me to repurchase.

I usually don't wear bright nail polish colours but this one is very cute. It took me a day to get used to it but I came to love the pop of colour and it lifts up my mood. Its a bit of a coral nail polish. I'm quite pale but it makes my hands look a little tan. (which I like)Overall I think its adorable and suitable for other teens and young adults.

This color didn't look right, it looked tacky on my skin tone.

I love this color on my very pail skin. It is really bright and pretty. I would definitely say it's more of a coral than anything. The formula is good and only requires two coats for good coverage. Perfect spring and summer color!

This has no coral in for me, its pink pink pink! But not tarty. Excellent formula of course, thanks Essie. I use it with Sally Hensen Double Duty as a base and Seche Vite liberally over the top. I get some tip wear but its really long lasting. The colour looks good even on my pale hands in winter. The thick brush and easy formula mean you don't spend ages tidying up. It isn't my usual sort of colour (its v girly) but it looks so professional on that its really classy. I use 2-3 coats but there's not much difference between the two. I've mixed it up a bit recently with OPI 'pirouette my whistle' sheer silver glitter on the top halves of the nail, like snowflakes. I think you could do anything with this and it'd look great. EDIT: This is actually the longest wearing polish in my collection of nail polishes, I really really recommend it ladies, I've come to realise there's just no point in buying cheaper polishes that chip easily! Save up and buy a few that really last.

This is a warm, pink-based coral colour. It is a summery shade which stands out without being too bright. It is a lovely pedicure colour and is very fun. It works well on my NC20 skin and does not bring out pink undertones in either my hands or feet. A nice, young Essie colour.

This is such a hot colour which makes your hands look more tanned. Loving the formula, as always. Will never cheat on Essie again, this is simply the best nail polish brand I know so far.
