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.

Why did I wait so long

I don't know why I waited so long to try this color. It's been available for years. It is classic. I have gotten so many compliments!!!
A Cut Above!

I really love this polish! It adds an amazing effect on top of any polish. On the first coat it has a very nice scattered effect, but you can build it up with a second coat to be denser , or even a third one for an almost chrome-esque fully packed nail. It's truly so gorgeous and shines so bright, even without a top coat. Due to the nature of it being a glitter, it lasts extremely long, but it does take a little bit of time to take off. I usually just need to soak my nails in acetone. Sometimes if I try and wipe it prematurely, it will actually just wipe the coloring off of the glitter and then the cotton ball is all caught in the glitter on my nails and everything. If you let the nails soak for at least like 10 or 15 minutes, it should all swipe off effortlessly. A little goes a very long way, I've had my bottle for two years now. It is also so versatile, you can put a singular coat over natural nails for a really cute pop of glitter, add some glitter on top of polish, or even make a full glitter nail. It is definitely worth a buy!
Great for the simple
nicki from florida
I like it because I only apply about two coats to get the natural pale pink color that my nails already produce. But more shiny. I want someone to hold my hand while they look like this lol
Love the watermelon color
Violet Gal from Jefferson, NJ
I saw the color "watermelon" in a magazine add and new I wanted to wear it. Love the color! Did find that it chipped quicker than I thought but I will try again with a different top coat to see if that makes a difference.

I've bought a LOT of blue polish over the years, looking for the darkest navy. This one "nails" it. Almost black, this is the navy blue I've been looking for.
reminds me of white-out

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

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.
