Swatched: Essie Wedding (Bridal) Collection 2014

As bridal season comes upon us, and Spring is finally in full bloom - we have some swatches of the essie Bridal collection! We are not brides, but pastels are super in for Spring, and we definitely recommend picking some of these up! The application of this collection as a whole is pretty impressive, as some pastels can definitely streak easily in application. All swatches are two coats without topcoat.

First up is Got Engaged! - a rosy pink with subtle shimmer. This is definitely wedding-appropriate and we love that its a creamy pastel without being super harsh against the skin. If you already have a polish like this in your collection, you probably don't need it - but this actually turned out to be quite a unique colour when we looked for dupes in our collection!

Next up is Love Every Minute, our favourite of this collection! This is bright without being offensive, and has a consistency somewhere between a jelly and a creme, but reaches opacity nicely in two coats. We would definitely recommend this polish, and also found it super easy to apply!

Next, a blue - what Essie does best (in our opinion!) - this is Meet the Parents, a muted cornflower blue. This would be the perfect 'something blue'. We love this polish, and will get tons of wear out of it in the spring months. This is definitely a recommended buy, especially if you have room for some fresh blues!

This final polish was, sadly, a bit of a disappointment in our eyes. This is supposed to be a shimmery, sheer white - but it misses the mark for us. She Said Yes is a bit streaky on application, probably because it is slightly too thick from the bottle. We actually used three coats here, and as you can see it is pretty difficult to notice any hint of shimmer. This would probably pair well as a subtle white under a french mani - but other than that, we struggle to find a use for this.
