SWATCH REVIEW: ESSIE BRIDAL 2013
It’s that time of year again. As soon as the snow begins to melt, wedding season begins! Essie has released their annual bridal collection, and we are lusting over the 4 classic hues. Last year their collection killed it, featuring some amazing alternative shades to the standard nude/pinks we tend to see. Essie’s 2013 Bridal collection is inspired by floral hues with a hint of shimmer & shine.
Using My Maiden Name – This polish is inspired by blue Hydrangeas. We found the colour to be more medium purple, with an iridescent slight shine. This is a fun shade for a bride to wear that wants to branch out and try something different. We only needed two coats for full coverage.
Meet Me at the Altar – This polish is inspired by lilacs. This soft blue-toned pink reminded us of OPI’s – Steady as She Rose. The colour is deeper than a conventional baby pink with it’s blue undertones & subtle silver shimmer – great for darker skin tones. We used two coats for the pictures below. We also thought this polish had such a cute name!
No Baggage Please – Inspired by roses, this polish will have future brides running out to purchase it. This is a classic, on-trend soft baby pink with a subtle silver shimmer. This shade will appeal to brides that want to keep their look traditional on the big day. We used three coats for the pictures below – two coats covered but there was still a hint of visible nail line.
My Better Half – Inspired by our favourite flower, the peony, this polish was our favourite of the collection. This polish has a nice pop of pink with a slight iridescent shine. My Better Half is totally something we can see ourselves wearing on the big day. It sticks with tradition but adds a little punch. We used two coats for full coverage.
What do you think of the Essie 2013 Bridal collection? These polishes are a great idea to bright as gifts for upcoming wedding & bridal showers. Even if you don’t have a ring on it, this collection is great for Spring/Summer for those that like to keep it classic with their nail colour.
