I've never been a fan of pastels, but this was included in the essie Holiday Collection Kit. Ballet Slippers is a really pale pink color, which surprisingly doesn't look too bad on me. However, I absolutely HATED the formula for this. It was just so streaky and I had to apply 3 coats to get it to the opacity that I wanted. But I have the same problem with all pastel nail polishes anyway, so I wasn't the least bit surprised.
