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.

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...

Looks a little light but once one it's a lovely pink. Problem is the formula. It's awfully streaky and takes about five coats before it's a solid color. Takes forever to dry because of this, though...
