Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!!! I wear this color everyday to school and it fits the job perfectly because it is a pale pink and sort of sheer. I get lots of compliments on this color everyday!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm on this fence with this polish.. I usually LOVE Essie polishes, and they do NOT lie when they say sheer about this. It takes roughly 4-5 coats to become opaque and I'm not ever sure if my nails are dry! (I painted them yesterday.) Overall, cute color, not sure if it's worth the struggle, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I looked at Essie polish colors online and chose a few I wanted to buy before going to shop for polish. The colors appeared pink or pinkish online, but in the store they definitely were NOT pink or pinkish. I was very disappointed that the color depictions online are not accurate or even close to being accurate and that I had to scrap my choices. I was also disappointed that Essie offers so many colors that are almost almost identical. Doing so overwhelms consumers, wastes their time and causes confusion. Sometimes "Less is More". Simplify Essie ... please? After giving up on trying to choose a pink shade (because there were SO many to choose from), I decided to try a neutral color for every day. I choose "Hi Maintenance". It's actually the same color as my skin and my skin isn't pink. (see the photo I posted).But I'm glad I gave it a try. The color looks awesome on me! I'm an older woman with nails that have deep ridges and my nail beds are varying shades of blue, purple and yellow. I've always worn thick, opaque polish to try to hide the ridges and unattractive nail bed colors. The thick polish was hard to apply and the ridges were never hidden completely but I didn't know what to do. "Hi Maintenance", as sheer as it is, makes the deep ridges disappear and hides my weird nail bed colors too. I consider THAT a miracle!I'm not good at applying my own polish and was overjoyed that "Hi Maintenance" went on perfectly with no streaks! It was thin and easy to apply. It didn't dry too quickly, but dried quickly enough that I didn't mess it up like I always do when using thick polish.I especially like that the white tips of my nails show through the polish and look a bit like a French tip. My nails haven't looked this good, with or without polish for many years. I'm over the moon in love with this polish and color. Essie "Hi Maintenance" is my new every day polish. And I'll never go back to using thick hard to apply polish that doesn't hide the ridges. Thank you Essie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and application I love this color. It's sheer and has a natural look to it. Even know the brush is thin,it was still easy to paint all the nails unless I was rushing. Great Color and formula

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice feminine yet simple nude pink I bought this to try something new and different especially for the work environment; something that is not too bold of color yet not too plain. This is a beautiful balance although the only con I have is it takes about 5 coats to really get the true pale pink to pop and the cover the nails. Other than that, it is perfect and it actually looks good on my hand and against my chestnut skin tone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for French manicure I love this, it is sheer so it's not the best alone if your nails have some discoloration, but great together with Blanc for the tips, I have also used Walz with good results. I really love the formula, it goes on so smoothly and it's really shiny and glossy. I want more variations of pink in this exact formula!
