Essie: 162 ballet slippers swatch

I don't know why, but I have once again fallen in love with just plain simple nails. I never really liked these pale jelly like off whites, but again i don't know why I love this one. But either way, I think it is a nice change up :)
This is four layers of Essie Ballet Slippers. 
Although I love this color, I must say the texture and application was a pain in the behind. It was extremely streaky. I would have liked to leave it at 3 layers but I just couldn't stand how uneven it was..... 

If you were to ask me if I would use the polish again, I am pretty sure I would, but maybe I will layer it with a similar color so that it might not need 4 layers. On the bright side it did dry quite fast and worked well with my nail enamel dryer. Cheers.
