At the Barre is part of the Ballet Nudes collection that Essie released for January 2017. It`s a Gel Couture polish instead of the regular Essie polishes. The color is a true nude, a warm-toned beige: the company calls it a soft cinnamon, although it`s considerably lighter than cinnamon spice. Application was a breeze, partly because of the Gel Couture brush (it`s wide and rounded, making it practically goof-proof) and the formula. I find that light colors generally go on streaky and patchy, but not this one! The Gel Couture formula is supposed to be long-lasting but I can`t really give an opinion on wear time since I only applied it yesterday will update later.
