Oh ballet slippers, where have you been all my life? Well, other than in the trash (I was never meant to be a ballerina; not with these curves anyways!)
Take the jump to read about the fabulosity that is this nail polish!
I don't think photos will ever do this polish justice.
It is the ABSOLUTE PERFECT cool toned baby pink polish with just the right ratio of opacity and sheerness.
I think what makes ballet slippers so perfect for me is that, while it is indeed a cool toned baby pink, it has just the slightest tinge of yellow to it. This is what has made finding a baby pink for my skin tone such an absolute bugger of a challenge for me; the completely blue toned polishes just look so wrong against my tan/olive skin.
And to be honest, I'm not a huge essie fan (I think the color selection is beautiful, but the consistency of the polish tends to be subpar and application is usually somewhat shoddy) and feel that the polishes receive far too much hype for what they're worth.
HOWEVER, I will vouch for ballet slippers: if you have been on the hunt for a baby pink polish to go with your yellow/red based (read: warm) skin tone, THIS IS IT. THE SEARCH IS OVER. REJOICE.
If you want to see more "real life" photos of this polish, I'm wearing it in this OOTD post.
Do you have this polish?
Love it? Hate it?
How do you feel about Essie polishes in general?
