Essie site lists this as a 'sheer' white but it's surely not! More of an opaque, even with one coat. Returning it....and hate when a company mis-represents their own shade!

This makes an amazing pedicure. It looks jelly-white, with an ever-so-slight pink undertone. It doesn’t look like you’re trying too hard with this, just very clean and natural. I was also able to...

I’m on my second bottle and I agree that the formula has changed colors slightly. It doesn’t have the undertone of yellow like the old Marshmallow did. It’s more a jelly formula white. I love a...

This is meant to be a soft milky white for French tips, however it looks awesome applied to the entire nail plate. It is finicky and can be streaky. How I avoid the streaky mess or the need to...

I love the color and pictures of it where folks can get it to apply well. Sadly I can not get it to apply well. It's streaky and a mess even with a self-leveling top coat. 1, 2 or 3 coats, it...

I bought this in 2015 and had a COMPLETELY different experience- so streaky/patchy I had to return it. Goopy, impossible to work with. It was also more yellowy than the current one. In 2017, this...

I’m not sure why I expected this polish to be any different than other Essie polishes I’ve owned. It is streaky and rather unforgiving. The brush is difficult to spread across the nail. It stays...

I usually love Essie polishes. I own a fair number of them in a variety of finishes (sheer, opaque, etc.) and I’ve always been happy with the application, colour and lack of chipping. This,...

Marshmallow is not a true opaque, neither is it a true sheer. It's smack in the middle between Essie Blanc and Essie Waltz. It is difficult to apply due to its thick, jelly formula, but the end...
