The color is extremely cute and simple. I love wearing it because of the color. However, the formula is extremely runny - funnier than typical nail polish. It makes it difficult to maneuver and to have it actually stay on the nail instead of running off the nail. it also takes FOREVER to dry. Mine are still drying and I've painted them a good 45 minutes ago. I don't think polish takes that long to dry. The color is faint and requires many layers for the color to actually be seen instead of the sheer coverage that two coats provides.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Clouds19 Did not stay on the nail at all.
The product was very bad. After applying, and allowing my nails to dry for almost a good hour, the nail polish wiped off on my bedsheets. I brushed my feet against the bed and the nail color wiped off completely. Even after an hour of drying, the polish was tacky and stuck to my fingers as I touched it.
The color was cute, but required many layers for it to not be streaky and to not see the nail.
Bad polish overall.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by darlinglm ballet slippers is a soft easy color
I bought this with discounts
The color is about the same shade as my nail bed - it is soft and light. The "thickness" of the paint is thin - but after two coats it supplied a nice coat on my nails. It held up well until I started digging in the garden and then started to chip. Can't blame that though. . . Good color, good paint, great price at a discount.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ames91 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.
