"Introducing essie bridal 2015 collection: A fairytale wedding is complete with love, the ideal mate, the perfect dress and most importantly, a flawless manicure. Just as important as the dress she wears, the bride's hands are an essential part of her look- showcasing the symbol of wedded bliss, the ring. This year, in the spirit of old and new, essie is bringing together a curated collection of six their most adored sheers to go hand-in-hand with six new shades that kick off this year's bridal season in celebratory style.
Like a bridal party of polishes, the essie bridal 2015 collection gives every bride- and everyone in her party- the ideal accessory for every occasion and event, and of course, the big day. Elegant and timeless, essie's sheers and creams are the perfect fit for big dreamers and blissful brides who strive for flawless, graceful looks. With 12 shades in total, the extended bridal palette allows brides to create a dazzling match for any shade of white, cream, vanilla, antique, blush- the possibilities are endless!" according to the press release.
The essie bridal 2015 collection includes:
Tying the knotie: a semi-sheer ballet slipper pink creme. (sheer floral pink)
Hubby for dessert: a light lilac creme. (sheer candied lilac smooth)
Worth the wait: a pearled peachy pink. Reminds me almost of the inside of a seashell, very pretty. (coral-kissed pink)
Brides no grooms: highly pigmented bright magenta creme. A 1 Coat Wonder!! (bachelorette-bright pink)
Brides to be: a creme beige nude. (soft-spoken caramel)
Happy wife happy life: a bright bold cherry red creme. 1 Coat Wonder! Provided excellent coverage. (radiant red orange)
(all swatches shown here are two coats, and are taken outdoors in natural light.)
I was really pleased with this collection. I think it is comprised of a beautiful and very tasteful color palette. I think there is a classic color here for everyone, that could be worn year round for the most part. I was really impressed with the formulas, and how highly pigmented some of the colors were. I am surprised however that there was no baby blue shade of sorts in this collection. Also worth mentioning for the first time with this collection are new bridal-inspired white lace decorated caps- I Love these. I tried capturing them in images, but it didn't come out quite as I would've liked.
My personal favorites include: Brides to be, Worth the wait, & Brides no grooms.
