Most Helpful Positive Review Satiny Color Thats Perfect For Most
Initially I thought the color was a bit light for my skin tone but overtime I've come to like it. Its soft enough to almost look natural but glossy enough to catch the eye. The formula is interesting to work with. It may take me some time to really work out how to use it best. I'd recommend this for anyone who loves soft nail colors or if you're looking for an understated semi-neutral look.
Most Helpful Critical Review Difficult Formula, Great Color
Ballet Slippers was one of the first Essie polishes I ever bought, and I bought it because of the amazing reviews I had seen for it. To be completely honest, the formula is VERY difficult to work with. It's a lovely sheer color, but you have to put 3 coats to make the streakiness not visible, and by that point, it is opaque. That being said, once you are used to the formula, it is far easier to work with. All of this said, once it is on the nails and opaque, the color is AMAZING! I have 100+ nail polishes, and yet this is my husband's absolute favorite nail polish on me. It makes my nails look clean and chic; it is so feminine, yet professional.

my 18th birthday is coming up so i decided to buy blanc to do my own nails. the coverage is there but i can't make it not look streaky and it looks like white out. it's really unattractive

Great to put on just on coat and nails look refreshed.

Beautiful application. Only needed one coat.

a nice change from my previous orange shade
Love this color. Long lasting
Heather from Florida
I used this on my natural nails (I always just paint my own) with no base coat and the hard as nails top coat (not by Essie) and it's lasted for days with no chipping!!! So awesome that it's held up so well especially with all the hand washing I've been doing! I'm on day 5 currently and it still looks great.
Amazing fall color I would definitely buy again

Color: Ballet Slippers
Stephanie from Minneapolis
I don't know if it was just this color but it did not apply well at all. it was almost too thick
LOVE "Off Tropic"!!
B from Michigan
This dark green color is amazing and dried quickly and the second coat was perfect! I also purchased the Essie Top coat (white zig zag bottle) and I'm impressed! Essie is my favorite ❤️
H from Detroit, MI
Such a great color for the Fall - glides on smooth and solid after the first pass! No streaking or unevenness - definitely recommend!
Love this nail polish
Fashionqueen from Sparks Nv
I do my own nails.... so great
Janice from Georgia
Love the color.
The brush makes it very easy to apply to your nails. The finish looks like I had it done in a salon.
Hailey from Savannah GA
Waaay too thick. It doesn't go on smoothly at all. I had to use too many coats to get an even color. I think for white polish you're better off using nail strips or dip powder. Or OPI polishes.
Always loved essie!
Claudiaaa.27 from AZ
I love the color blue green it's so pretty! 🤩 Always like how the brushes are more expanded so it looks nicer and easier to paint my nails.
Best nail polish ever!
Mrs J from Knoxville
I've tried all brands of nail polish, and ESSE is the best...no matter the color.
Best Nude Nail polish
Care from Chicago
I've had issues finding a nude nail polish that isn't too opaque or transparent and this one is perfect in my opinion.
Slc412 from Pittsburgh
I bought kimonover and it is a very beautiful dark purple. Perfect for fall.
Perfect Pale Pink
Lluat from St. Louis, MO
Love this pale pink. I was replacing an old one that isn't made anymore. This is very translucent which is what I wanted. I have short, short nails and didn't want to draw attention to them but wanted them to look pretty. Also has great staying power.
Bed Rock n Roll
TJ from san diego
sooooo good! color is rich, payoff in one coat. looking forward to wearing this out in the fall!
My favorite neutral
Nurse from Minneapolis
I have short nails and as a nurse can't wear polish. So this is a great day off shade as it removes easily and doesn't stain my nails. And I just think it's pretty.
PugMomma from Chicago
Beautiful sheer pink- very close to Dior Sheer clear pink Mrs. Gray's wedding nail color, but a lot less expensive. Wears well.
I would buy occasionally
Gamecock lady from SC
I use it whenever I want some color.
Safayi from TEXAS
First time buying and using the color licorice. I am very happy with the coverage and formula. I apply 2 coats to get the depth I want.
