Essie’s new ballerina-inspired gel nail polish collection is “en pointe”

The colors are: Satin Slipper (a champagne ivory), Lace Me Up (a rose pink), Hold the Position (a coral peach pink), At the Barre (a cinnamon nude), Perfect Posture (a periwinkle powder blue), and Closing Night (a soft shimmer gray.)

These polishes don’t need a base coat — how easy is this?

Seriously, even the bottles look like ballerinas posing.

Essie’s best selling neutral and French manicure base, Ballet Slippers, is a manicurist and client fave, so it figures that another ballet-inspired theme will be a hit!
