If you're looking for bottle color or a milky nude, you might want to skip this unless you're really good with moderately streaky polishes. It's not as bad as Essie Marshmallow (a nightmare to try to apply). I think some might be able to do okay with 2-3 coats and a good self leveling-top coat.

I probably rebuy it, but I did find a way to use it that I do like and is …

This is by far my favorite opaque nude white. I try other colors but always come back to this. It looks nothing like the picture of the bottle on this website.

This is the sheer staple polish I reach for every week; just simple, flattering, and lovely.

I own Essie's Ballet Slippers too but Ballet Slippers is a tough formula and I just don't want to deal with its goopy mess anymore. I've also bought both polishes at around the same time and I've had to add polish thinner to Ballet Slippers, but Adoreaball still applies very …

Disappointing in several aspects. First, it is streaky. I applied 2 coats (over a base) and the coverage was uneven. Perhaps more coats could help, but then the color would be more opaque which is not the effect I want in a pale, pale pink. Second, is longevity is an issue. Chipping was evident less than 10 hours after application! My nails were painted in the evening and the next morning after …Read more

This is described as a pink/nude sheer, but I don't see any pink in this really. This leans much more peachy pink. It's very subtle but it doesn't look pink or peach.

I wanted to love this and give it 5 lippies but I can't. It's very streaky, uneven, doesn't level well, hard to work with, and it doesn't dry. It was still tacky after 24 hours. I have …

Although like most similar shades of polish, this particular polish runs streaky I absolutely love it. It lasts a few days without chipping, but I do find that layering too much with this one causes it to chip more quickly. Then again, I work in a restaurant that worships the use of bleach so it may be the context of the situation rather than the product itself. Overall, it's shiny (on …Read more

I tried to love this color. I really did but...This is the streakiest polish I've used in a long time and I used 4 coats trying to get semi-opaque color. It's such a bad product and it cost nearly $8. I tried to return it to target but the lady said it was "supposed to be sheer". Seriously, it's supposed to be sheer? Anyway, if you want opacity try something else.

Adore-a-Ball is one of Essie's many sheer pale pinks. Like others polishes of this color, it runs a little streaky, but it's not very noticeable to others. It's a very cute color, and I'm glad I own it, but there are many just like it. If you can find it on sale (I actually found mine at the thrift store), definitely snatch it up. Otherwise, Wet n Wild's $2 Megalast line …Read more

This is my HG nail polish for hands. It is the perfect clean and bright milky nude/pink color . If you want a natural but still pretty color, this is it. its not too sheer either. I have medium tan olive skin (NC20) and this color just makes my nails look healthy, pretty and clean and its perfect. I have been repurchasing for a few years and will keep buying as long as they sell it! Essie …Read more

Wow. I just love it so much! I did find it streaky on a second coat but I prefer only one coat anyway so that wasn't a problem. It's the most beautiful sheer, pinky-nude color that makes my nails look even and shiny and yet still natural. I gave it only four stars because when I bought it I did expect it to be more opaque but I've fallen in love with the sheer-ness! I will …Read more
