Essie's Ballet Slippers



Please excuse the mess of my cuticles, I am getting my nails done on Thursday!

I was very kindly gifted a selection of Essie nail polishes, a brand which I can't believe I have never tried. I was forever loyal to Models Own but my mind has now been opened to endless possibilities!

I thought I would start with perhaps the famous of the bunch I have got in my collection, Ballet Slippers. A sheer, milky pink colour which to be honest doesn't really suit my skin tone. It's a brilliant one for work though as I can't go without nail polish on, ever. It could be a top coat for any pinky shades I have. It's just a bit...boring. 

Saying that the application is brilliant. A lovely brush which applies a really smooth formula. It dries quite quickly too! I have some others to show you soon which I much prefer. Although this one isn't really my thing the formula the polishes I've tried have drawn me into the brand a little bit more.
