Essie's Bridal Collection 2011

Sure this new essie Bridal Collection is intended for brides and their bridal party, but the four colors are so fab…they are more than bridal worthy. They are perfect even if you are not walking down the aisle any time soon.

The essie bridal collection mixes the classics with the current trends and is comprised of three elegantly soft and neutral shades and one true red. With shades like Borrowed and Blue, a pale pastel that is sure to become your tried and true; First Dance, a provocative red that demands attention; Better Together, for the perfect sheer and or essie’s newest nude, Made to Honor – these colors are sure to live in your world forever. The 4 color collection is comprised of: Borrowed & Blue (hey, every bride needs something blue), Made to Honor, First Dance (a vibrant red), Better Together (my favorite, thus far).

In case you are going to be a summer bride, here are Essie’s bridal nail tips:

1. Start experimenting with nail color at least one month before your wedding day. Try layering complimentary shades starting with whites, pinks and moving to more bold colors to determine what type of essie bride you will be. Whether you choose one perfect shade or two that are better together – you will end up with your perfect hue!

2. Treat yourself to weekly manicures and pedicures beginning at least two months before your wedding day. This will help you to ensure that your hands and nail beds are in perfect health and ready for their close up! Whether at home, or in your favorite salon, be sure to keep your cuticles clean and hydrated by pushing them back and by applying generous amounts of essie Apricot Cuticle Oil to help prevent hang nails and infection.
