so a bit of my clean freak nature raised its head the other day and i have sorted out my nail polish into summer and winter shades, the summer ones are now in a lovely little box so that i have way more space on my dresser. seems that my fall/winter colours are split into 3 definite styles; darks, glitters and neutrals. this little gem sits firmly in the neutrals section.
essie ballet slippers is a very sheer baby pink, as the name would suggest very ballet-esque. it is a gorgeous shade but unlike the other essie colours i have tried (little bit essie obsessed so quite a few lol) it needs a good three coats to be opaque and because i like a really solid colour without even a hint of a streak i even went as far as applying a fourth. faffy? hell yes! but the colour is just so lovely i couldn't not do it lol and if i have an entire evening free i would put this aside to apply this colour lol so the manicure takes forever but i am in love with the colour so for me its worth it lol.
i'm sharing my love of ballet slippers with the nail files from tara and vicki over at fabulous but evil and my vickilicious life and with manicure monday :D
