The Ultimate Pale-Pink Nail Shade

Favourites 27

If you’re looking for the ultimate pale-pink nail shade, then we reckon Essie’s Ballet Slippers is the one. Right up there with the likes of Touché Eclat, this pale-pink polish is the definition of a cult beauty buy. 

Loved by SL’s editor, style setter Carine Roitfield, countless A-listers and even royalty, this best-selling bottle is the go-with-anything shade that suits every skin tone. But don't just take our word for it:

"The Queen will only wear Essie's Ballet Slippers nail polish... And what a fitting shade M'aam. Pale but not cold, nude but with a hint of pink and sheer but with just enough coverage for a healthy camouflage." – The Telegraph

"Ballet Slippers is a pale, sheer pink that’s become synonymous with a neutral manicure. It’s a celebrity and editor favourite that can be worn a variety of ways. One coat gives a sheer, barely-noticeable wash of coverage, while two provides a subtle pink hue that lets white tips and your natural colouring peek through... It’s really the only nail polish we consider a 'must-have'." – 

Classic and neutral yet fresh as a daisy, if you buy one polish this season, make it Ballet Slippers.
