I accidentally bought this in my last browse in Ulta. I was looking for a white polish thought I had picked up Marshmallow opps. My last bottle of this over five years ago was gloppy streaky mess...

Never ever understood the hype behind this colour, Essie polishes are great quality, they have a wide brush making application a dream but ballet slippers, wow, it may as well be a clear polish....

Very streaky and watery; have to add many layers to get full coverage. Whether using several layers or just use 2-3 layers, it looks streaky and uneven no matter how it is applied. Sad and not...

I bought this like, I’m guessing, others who read that this is the only polish Queen Elizabeth wears. Once I tried it, I understood why. This looks great whether I am winter pale or summer lightly...

This polish looks A W E S O M E on tan/olive skin. It's so pretty and elegant, not streaky at all for me.

For blondes, this is perfect, I love two - three coats. Very flattering on all skin tones. Neutral enough to be very classy and elegant, it's not too pink or too white. Just great.

Hey! I’ve tried a new tactic that seems to help a lot: 1. Replace the skinny brush with the big rounded one from the Essie Couture line or Sally Hansen Salon line 2. Apply two coats to one hand...

I honestly bought Ballet Slippers because of the hype but didn't use it for a long time after reading the reviews, I was sure I was gonna hate the formula. Well, actually it's surprisingly not...

Tried this several times because I like the color. Unfortunately it is very streaky and looks a mess even with additional coats. Guess the queen of England has someone to apply it for her since...

As read in The Devil Wears Prada, 2 thin coats of Essie Marshmallow, 2 thin coats of Ballet Slippers: magic. When I have time I do base & top coat with Nails Inc Kensington Caviar. With the 2+2...
