    Favorite sheer

    I do 3 layers of color and two layers of top coat with this one. Looks so glassy and dries perfectly. My favorite go-to for work. Sheers are my favorite polish. Looks so squishy and the very light pink color is flattering on many skin tones. Would love a more white version of this one for a marshmallow vibe.

    Essie is My all-time favorite !

    I have been an Essie fan for over 30 years when I first started doing my own french and swiss style manicures. At that time I used the Marshmallow or Ballet slipper on the whole nail and a solid white on the tips. For years now I have used Pre-Show Jitters Gel polish and love it! I mostly do my own but when I treat myself to a mani or pedi at the salon I bring my polish with me and the nail technicians always comment on how much they like this color. Many compliments over the years on my Essie nails 🤍

    Love it

    I bought this last year on New Years Eve, and was so happy that I ordered more colors when I ran out. I always seem to run out of Step 2 before Step 1. I love that following the easy steps 1&2 is simple, dries within minutes (less than 5) and stays on much longer than my regular polish. It doesn't last as long as a Salon Gel treatment but it also doesn't require the special light. The light ages my skin and I don't like using it but this works well enough and easy enough without the aging skin effect.

    Shrinks + peel off

    I used this on sheer fantasy colour and after some hours I saw that it had shrunk. 2 days later I was able to peel off the nail polish in its entirety. I am not satisfied with the gel couture collection.

    Maybe if you apply it with the top coat in the morning and then don’t touch anything else FOR THE REST OF THE DAY, your manicure will still look good. The polish got all mushed overnight, despite giving it 3 hours to set. Also this color needs a minimum of 3 coats to not be completely translucent on the nail.

    Essie is all I wear

    I normally always wear ballad slipper but tried this color while getting my mani and it stays on a good 10 days just in time for my biweekly mani! Essie is the best out there! This color does remind me of ballet slippers. Classic color goes with anything!

    Perfect sheer nude for cool toned complexions

    Nude shades are usually too warm on me. Even Fairy Tailor is a too warm. This shade is perfectly “my nails but better” with just 1 coat. And the formula has excellent durability. I can get a whole week without chips, peeling, or scratches. The brush shape even lets clumsy me get a near perfect polish even with my non-dominant hand.
