Last week I went to get my nails done for a wedding and I got Essie’s Sugar Daddy on my nails thinking it would be a nice light pink. I think it looks just like clear nail polish on me. I have also tried Ballet Slippers but that’s kind of whitish and needs three coats to not look ‘streaky’. What is your fav. light pink nail polish that shows up but doesn’t look like a little girl pink? THanks bees!

I bought this CHEAP nailpolish at Target once that I get asked about all the time. It’s by Sinful Colors Professional, and the color is #700, Easygoing. Here’s a picture of it:

That’s a nice color. I think Essie Not Just A Pretty Face is a good color too

I’ve used Sugar Daddy & Ballet slippers, Essie def. does a lot of nice soft pinks but agree that at times too light. I’ve tried several China Glaze colors and one I liked (and very appropriate) is “Diva Bride”.

I love Essie! I generally use Essie’s “Mademoiselle,” but it takes at least 2 coats to look good. Generally 2-3.

For any of those Essie sheer neutrals, try putting Limosceen on the first coat, then the other. The Limosceen is whiter and makes a great base for those like spaghetti strap and mademoiselle.
Others I love are Real Simple and Starter Wife. I wore Starter Wife on my wedding day and it was beautiful.

I looooove Nars Orgasm polish. It’s more of a peachy pink, though.

Oooh I hope the bee posts that posted her picture before. I have the colour stuck in my mind but can’t explain it…and need a pic for when I get my nails done!
I *think* it was called cotton candy or something?

I wore OPI “Italian Love Affair” for my wedding – It was the perfect light pink. It looked great on toes too!
Sorry for the GIANT picture,but you can kind of see the pink…

I use Essie Marshmallow, topped with Ballet Slippers. Works like a charm!
