Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful white, but not too white! I am blonde and fairly pale and never thought about wearing a white on my nails, even though I'm a part-time manicurist. It was really quiet this past weekend so I was playing around and stumbled across this color I hadn't tried before. I painted a few nails and instantly fell in love! I agree with another poster that I don't find it off-white or cream colored... It's a pretty sheer white, but it's not too white. It looks pretty and clean and I was shocked that it didn't wash out my already pale skin. This is going to be one of my go to colors from now on. I did have to put on three coats to achieve the color I wanted, but it was worth it! I dressed it up with some glitter and nail art too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Catalogue Model Mani Perfection You know how catalogue models always have clean looking understated nails? That's what Tuck it in my Tux does for your nails. Pure Perfection! Essie puts out a number of sheers aka jellies and I've tried most since 1998/99 when I started wearing Essie, but Tuck it in my Tux knocks it out of the ballpark! Tuck it in my Tux is my go to clean nails look. It looks off-white or cream in this online image but in real life I don't see that beige/off-white. I would describe the color as a milky white sheer, not at all stark white. Any pink in it is from your own natural nail color that comes through underneath. The first coat like many sheers applies slightly streaky BUT the second coat fixes it and evens it out with out any looking back. I find it opaque in just two coats but I wear my nails very short so that might have something to do with the ease at which I achieve ideal opacity. I searched long and hard to find the ideal sheer/clean catalogue mani look for my pale with both pink and yellow undertones complexion and this is by far the best I've found. I think it would flatter universally.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty in bottle... It was pretty when i ordered in online, but on my nail, it was gooie and weird. It was not a perfect white, more of a tinted clear. It takes many coats to get it to work. but overall, after 3-4 coats, it is a gorgeous white!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very very sheer I was looking for a new white because I ran out of blanc and this polish was the only white they had for Essie in the store. I wish I'd held off and looked into this polish because if I knew it was THIS sheer I wouldn't have bought it. not only is it the most sheer polish I have ever used, it's very streaky; in order to get much color at all AND even out the streaks I need to apply several coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING WHITE If you are tan and in need of a white that doesn't look like you painted your nails with white out this is it!! It is very sheer, but 3 coats gave me full opacity and no nail lines! This is a jellyish white so if your looking for a very pigmented stark white this isn't it. But I'm so in love and I'm glad I bought this! Essie please never discontinue this color because it is a definite classic for me along with Ballet Slippers!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful color, tricky formula. Love this color, it's my perfect clean, elegant, summer shade! But...sigh, the formula is a tricky one. I wouldn't describe it as sheer, it can achieve almost full opacity with 3 coats, but it applies very streaky, and that's not easy to eliminate with subsequent (thin) coats. If it wasn't for the challenging application issues, this would hands down be my all-time favorite Essie color, and I've tried many!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it This was my go to polish that Id get applied on my acrylics. It starts off sheer white and takes about 3 coats so it doesn't look streaky but about a week later it starts to get dull and be more of an off white. But nonetheless I get a lot of compliments on this color
