I'm looking for a soft pink polish, nothing too bright, quite natural / nude but hard wearing. My budget is under £8. Please can I have your suggestions?

I didn't think much to the consistency of Essie ballet slippers tbh although the colour is nice.

Nails inc polishes are the best IME they go on really smoothly and last ages.

Essie Sugar Daddy for me.

Essie Fairy Tailor is much nicer than Ballet Slippers - on my nails, anyway! It’s one of their gel polishes and lasts really well.

St Tropez is def a nude. Not a ‘pretty pink’ so depends what you’re looking for. Have fun shopping!

Essie Ballet Slippers or Mademoiselles.

Both Ballet Slippers and Mademoiselle are really tricky to apply; for some reason Essie have never cracked the formula for those.

Vanity Fairest or Sugar Daddy are much easier to apply.
