WHAT: Essie's Bridal Collection, which consists of six shades of nail polish specifically designed to complement a formal white dress, or even bridesmaid dresses. The key word here is soft.
WHY WE LIKE THEM: These are subtle, sheer shades that will also look great with wardrobes rich in spring's bright colors. No Pre-Nup is the deepest pink of the lot, with a hint of strawberry. The least sheer of the six is Tie the Knot, a shiny buff. Blushing Bride is the palest, almost a nude, with just the slightest hint of pink. True Love is a true light pink with a bit of peachy-coral, while Happily Ever After is a pale pink. Finally, Cloud Nine is a light white with just a hint of tan.
