Most Helpful Positive

Went back for more!
I love this colour, it is such a nice pinky nude but close to white as well so can really set off a nice tan without being the main attraction. You will need 2 or 3 coats with this colour but I've found it dries well. Definitely recommend as this is my second time purchasing the product.

not bad
wasn't the best color once dried but did dry fast
  1. Went back for more!

    I love this colour, it is such a nice pinky nude but close to white as well so can really set off a nice tan without being the main attraction. You will need 2 or 3 coats with this colour but I've found it dries well. Definitely recommend as this is my second time purchasing the product.
  2. Pretty

    A classic colour and very wearable. So good I accidentally bought it twice. I find it works better as a 2 coat opaque because it's hard to get a neat finish as a one coat sheer. Comes out a petal pink that's very pretty and feminine but not too girly.
  3. So pretty, take care when applying

    I really adore this colour, and it's perfect with two coats, but I recommend taking care when applying it. If it's not perfectly even, it can look streaky and blotchy quite easily. As long as it's applied well, it's a superb colour.
  4. Love the colour!

    I love Essie nail polishes, as they dry quickly and last longer than other polishes before chipping. Ballet Slippers is a beautiful colour and the perfect pale pink. I read that it was the colour that the Royals wear and I was after something classy and appropriate for work. This is the perfect colour and provides a lovely effect on the nails. Don't expect it to be obvious pale pink - it isn't. It is more of an opaque french manicure. You can apply more coats for a stronger effect.
  5. Pretty pink

    This is such a pretty pink colour that suits my fair skin very well. The formula is really nice and lightweight. The only thing is it needs to be build up 2-3 layers for full opacity.
  6. staple pink!

    This is now the only sheer pink polish I will use. It's the perfect colour for everyday, understated nails, and the brush makes it very easy to apply. Would definitely recommend
  7. cutest colour

    I really love the natural and subtle colour of this polish! Super classy and pretty
  8. Sheer

    This is a sheer soft baby pink. I would wear this sheer (because making it opaque would require several coats). It is a nice natural nail look
  9. Gorgeous colour

    Love Essie, this colour is gorgeous and it glides on nicely. I always find I get a good 2 weeks before chipping. Its an easy solution for nails instead of going to the salon. highly recommended
  10. Prettiest Pink

    Gorgeous shade in the prettiest of pinks, one of the best nail polish brushes I’ve used, goes on so easy when painting (especially when painting the opposite hand) - lovely colour, so easy to apply and looks fab on!
  11. Perfect Colour

    I love this nail polish! It's long wearing, even and a really pretty colour for many skin tones. Really lovely sheer colour with one coat, but can be built up to a more pale pink with another coat. I love wearing it to work too! Will repurchase again and again
  12. Unrequited love

    I adore the colour of this polish, but I am not a fan of the Essie formula. I find that the polish stains my nail beds and it isn’t very durable no matter how I approach my preparation I’ve tried numerous base coats and top coat combos but it just doesn’t love me back.
  13. A bit to pale for my skin

    I purchased this when I found out it was the polish that the queen wears but I found that it is the exact same colour as my natural nail and looks like im not wearing any colour at all. its a nice formula though so I will be trying the brand again but in a different colour.
  14. Drys fast!

    This is a nice formula that drys quickly! It is a very light close to white/nude pink which is great for neutral shade.
    It does need a few layers (like any light colour nail polish) but drys quickly and doesn't smudge easily.
  15. Cute

    the beautiful pale pink shade which suits all skin tones and is so elegant. The formula is also fantastic and dries well and quickly without too much hassle. The application is also easy because of the quality and size of the brush.
  16. Go to nail polish

    There is a reason this is a cult fave. Lovely shade that is work appropriate and flattering on most skin tones.
  17. Would recommend

    Silky to apply and lasts well. A beautiful pale pink colour.
  18. Lovely product, lasting results.

    Beautiful range of colours that are easy to apply and quick drying. Will definitely repurchase, especially this gorgeous shade! TOTAL LOVE!
  19. So disappointed!

    Colour looked amazing and I had heard of the brand. The colour is lovely but it didn’t go on well at all. I tried applying a light coat waiting for it to dry then another coat. Dried streaky. By the end of the next day ( I’d like to add I don’t work and always wear rubber gloves when doing house work) it was flaking off. Very disappointed.
  20. a fan

    a very nice and light everyday color. it stays long, dries quickly and does not chip easily.
  21. Lovely simple polish

    This colour is super subtle and makes your nails look naturally pretty. Easy to apply and goes on nice and smoothly, and you can build up coats depending on the shade you prefer. It does start to chip after a couple of days but the colour doesn't show that too much - if you need a more longwearing one, i'd recommend Essie's gel couture formula instead.
  22. the best colour

    I love this shade, i bought it for my wedding but have been wearing it as a staple.

    Best with 2 or 3 coats.

    It smells toxic though, I need to make sure I am in a well ventilated area otherwise it stinks out the whole house.
  23. Best Ever

    This product is the very best nail polish on the earth. This nail polish does not go gluggy over time and while it is a tad expensive it is still fabulous to work with.
  24. The only nail colour I wear

    I have quite olive, tanned skin and am just not a fan of nail polish and how it looks on me, but this is the only colour I use and buy. It makes my hands look even more bronzed and is a very classy shade. It somehow has both peach and purple tones and suits me as much as it suits my paler friends.

    Huge fan
  25. Pretty

    i love how sheer and soft this colour is.. you can make it deeper with more layers or keep it as just a nice soft touch to your nails.
  26. Clean & Beautiful Pink Nude!

    This polish is something I wear when I want to make my fingers look really well presented. I always get compliments on the colour - it's the perfect pink nude polish.
  27. Perfect nude

    My fave everyday nail colour. It’s understated and makes my hands look ‘done’ without a professional mani.
  28. Lovely colour, Essie nail polish convert!

    I bought this after reading that it is the only shade the royal family wear, as I was looking for a good pale-nude colour. This is the perfect natural shade! It is definitely a pale nude, and I apply about 3 coats to get the right colour. I was in a rush so didn't use a base or top coat, yet this looked great and didn't chip as easily as other brands. I expect that when I use a top coat, it will last for several days without needing to reapply. I've ordered other Essie shades online as I've been very impressed. Perfect for an everyday colour for all skin types!
  29. Great

    The best nail polish I’ve ever used. The formulas are excellent and easy to use. I wear my nails short and almost never have chips are a week of normal wear. Gorgeous baby pink colour.
  30. Lovely colour

    Lovely pale colour that looks feminine and lovely for spring!
  31. Great classic colour

    Essie is a great brand and this is such a beautiful classic colour
  32. Feminine and subtle

    Such a beautiful colour and a nail polish formulation that is hear wearing and quick setting. I love essie polishes and this colour is perfect for any occasion / season!
  33. Love

    This is such a lovely fun colour. This polish stays on forever and doesn't chip easily. Great quality.
  34. love this colour!

    I love ballet slippers, its such a pretty nude colour. So easy to wear and goes with everything!
  35. Super pretty

    Ballet slippers is one of my ultimate favourite nail polish shades. It's such a classic, feminine and pretty colour. Essie formula is smooth and great too
  36. Love!

    I’ve been using Essie in ballet slippers for years. I’d gone off and tried others but always come back to this. It’s absolutely beautiful, two coats along with top shine coat and my mani lasts beautifully for a week. It’s the most beautiful sheer shade. I would recommend highly.
  37. Essie fave

    I love Essie polishes - they are long-lasting and have the best colour range. This is one of my all time faves in the collection - it looks really cute on fair and tanned skin too!
  38. Cult buy for a reason

    I love essie polishes, they are long lasting and have a beautiful consistency. Ballet Slippers is a gorgeous buildable sheer colour which is a classic and timeless addition to anyone's nail wardrobe.
  39. Perfect

    Love this Essie polish! all of their polishes have a great formula thats pretty long lasting. I love this colour, perfect for any season!
  40. Great polish!

    I have a few Essie polishes, and I love them, so when I heard the queen uses ballet slippers, I knew I had to try it. It's such a gorgeous color and lasts a long time
  41. love!

    absolutely love Essie nail polish and have used them for years! lasts forever (especially with the gel top coat) and such a pretty colour
  42. Love the colour

    This is a great colour. The shade is amazing and stays put for ages. Very pretty.
  43. Classic Pink nail polish

    I love this OPI polish - I usually do 3 coats and it has a beautiful light pink colour.
  44. pretty colour

    when i read that the Queen wears this specific colour, i couldnt help but to try it. it's definitely one of my fave pink right now. i love pinks in general, so a subtle, light pink colour is a great addition to my collection! love it
  45. Pretty light pink

    If you are wanting a nail polish that is more subtle, this is a great choice. It is pretty, but not too much. I find this polish to be smooth and to apply nicely. Extra layers can make it more opaque too.
  46. Love it

    When I read that the Queen wears this shade and it was only $15 I had to try it, and it didn't disappoint. It's a fairly translucent pink, more like if you were having a french mani. It lasts at least a week (using a base and top coat) and is very shiny. I want to get more Essie polishes to try.
  47. Worn by Your Royal Highness, The Queen

    True story! Apparently its the Queens preferred shade. So if you are going for a natural/classy aristocrat look, this shade is for you! However, if you are going for slightly less transparent - Sugar daddy is the one for you.
  48. Great colour

    Very flattering colour on my light skin. Best of all it lasted longer than any other brand I've used. Love the shape of brush too. Winner!
