BALLET SLIPPERS BY ESSIE

Hi lovely ladies, today I wanted to show you my newest addition to my nail polish collection. First of all, what a cute nail polish name " ballet slippers"! It's my second Essie nail polish purchase, they do have beautiful colors including their new collection "Resort 2013". I can't wait to try them. Unfortunately, the consistency of this polish isn't the best and apparently it's the same with any pale Essie colors. I find it to be really thin and liquidity making it difficult to apply. In order to get an opaque finish you need to apply at least 3 coats. I think it's a really pretty color for every day and even for a formal occasion, it's really natural, really feminine, too bad the consistency is not so good.
I will soon try Bubble Bath from OPI, it's a very similar color but with a much better formula like all OPI nail polishes. Do you recommend any Essie colors?
These photos were taken with 3 coats and no top coat, 2 days after I applied it.
Have a great week everyone!
Claudia

  1. Colour is very nice but 3 coats to get opeque finish is too difficult for me... I will surely spoil it while is wet..

  2. Hi, Claudia and by the way, this is the way my ex-husband used to call me because he is Italian and my name is Claudine, though I won't divulge it on the blog ! I only own Ballet Slippers by Essie so can't comment on the other colours; my daughter owns quite a few of them but darker and she loves them. Personally, I agree with you, this one needs at least three coats !xx

  8. Claudia, essa cor é muito linda! Eu concordo contigo quanto à qualidade dos esmaltes da Essie, são muito finos e líquidos, difíceis de passar. Eu adoro esmaltes também! Beijos, Cristina

  9. It's a very pretty color, but you are right about the weak application. Bubble Bath by OPI is one of my favorites and wear the most on hands, you're going to love it.

    Hope your week is going great Claudia!

  13. I love Essie polishes and they do have some interesting names. I had a pedicure in a salon a while ago and I think this was the colour. I think I might buy it now you have reminded me.
