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.IMG_0919IMG_0920

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!IMG_0908IMG_0906

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.IMG_0899IMG_0895

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.IMG_0913IMG_0914

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. Tweet us your thoughts @PolishYouPretty @Essie @EssieCanada!

This polish will be available May 1, 2013. Essie can be purchased at Shopper’s Drug Mart, Walmart & other Essie retailers for $12.00 CAD.

    Really surprised me – when I saw the graphics for this collection I was sure it was all full of polishes I did not need and very dupable ones. But seeing your swatches I now want to pick up all but the blued pink one! Hopefully they will come out before May 1 – I want the My Better Half right now!

    Thanks for posting these! I have been looking all over for swatches. I’m not sure how this compares to previous collections… I really like Using My Maiden Name, but it looks very similar to She’s Picture Perfect.. I wonder if they are dupes. The formula on meet me at the altar looks very hard to manage! My Better Half is very pretty. Thanks again!
