Every year when Essie releases their Bridal Collection, I’m always eager to see which soft, sheer or classic shades inspire that eventful walk down the aisle. When you think of weddings, whether as the bride or bridesmaid, nudes/pinks, are typical/standard choices for the big day. These colours, along with the French/American manicure have historically been the safer choice. For the last few years however, Essie has been thinking outside the box and I couldn’t be more thrilled. This year’s Essie Bridal (available in stores now) collection offers some amazing alternatives.
The four new shades are all floral shades with a playful attitude and a touch of shimmer, none of which are the least bit traditional. These shades all have a very romantic feel to them, but also have a modern twist. Whether associated with weddings or not, each of these polishes is perfect for Spring/Summer and great for those of you who aren’t quite ready for the neon or bright trend we are also seeing this season.
Meet Me At The Altar
Going to the chapelof love? Make a romantic rendezvous to “I do” in this utterly delightful spring time lilac.
No Baggage Please
Let the past be the past. In the palest petal pink the future looks positively rosy. Life’s a breeze when you’re travelling light.
My Better Half
When you find the one, you know. This irresistibly pretty peony pink brings out the best in you on the big day – and everyday.
Using My Maiden Name
March down the aisle to a different beat. Express your signature style in pretty blue hydrangea and make this day your own.
