The minute I saw this colour on my friends nails, I was in love. It looked so chic and sophisticated on, so of course I had to know what is was called and where from. Low and behold, the beautiful polish was Essie- Ballet Slippers. She'd told me they had discontinued it in Holland, so I was pretty concerned (as you can imagine), that I wouldn't be able to get my paws on it!
Despite my concerns, Boots answered my prayers and had one bottle left on their shelves. Meant to be? I think so!
Although you need a few coats of the polish to make it opaque, once it's dried it looks slightly like a french manicure from a distance. I'm not one for french manicures anymore, but this... Ooh boy, I looove it! It is just too darn pretty!
The longevity of this nail varnish is also pretty impressive. I have been wearing it for 5 days, and still no chips. I've not tried any Essie polishes before, so I'm pretty impressed with this! So now I'm on the look out for more colours!
