essie Bridal 2016 Collection Swatches and Review

 Hi lovelies, this year the essie Bridal 2016 Collection has the perfect mix of modern and classic! It consists of 6 lovely shades and is the follow-up to their Spring Collection. This collection has recently become a staple for me as I recently got engaged and am suddenly obsessed with all things Bridal!

Let’s check out the press release:

“Take off. Check-in. Bliss out. You’ve got two tickets to paradise, but why not start the honeymoon right now and canoodle the whole way there? That’s right: you’re just married and love is in the air – and in the taxi, too. The ceremony was perfect – seeing the whole family coming together was just so magical. The dress. The shoes. The perfect essie shade. It was everything you dreamed of, but now it’s time to focus on what’s really important: each other. Oh, wait. What’s really important is that you are mrs always-right!

The essie Bridal 2016 Collection is thrilled to present six shades of bridal perfection. This blissful palette is a passport to happiness that will take brides on a love-fueled holiday of lifetime. The romantic grey lilac of between the seats adds an element of surprise when you kiss and fly. Perhaps you’ll consider going for a deeper shade of amour with a rich, satisfying violet or entrance-making shade of fierce terracotta rose. However you color your honeymoon, essie’s bridal 2016 collection is committed to making your wildest fashion dreams come true. Bon voyage as you embark on the journey of a lifetime!”

Essie Combined

“The first day of the rest of our lives is finally here! Everyone is coming together to watch me steal his name. After our big day, we’ll wave good-bye and hop on a plane with our passport to happiness and each other. I can’t wait to hold hands and kiss between the seats the entire flight. As soon as we check- in into our honeymoon suite I’m going to order groom service. I get what I want, when I want. Just call me mrs always right!”

Now that you’ve got the details, let’s get to swatching!


‘steal his name’ | he, and his name are yours for keeps when you make it official in this cheeky sheer peach.

image3‘between the seats’ | it’s a wild ride! hold on tight with this seductively romantic grey lilac. what goes on from there, i’ll never tell!


‘passport to happiness’ | check you baggage at the gate, because your bright future is ready for take-off in this whispering spring green.


‘mrs. always-right’ | nothing like this fierce terracotta rose to aptly remind him  who shares the pants. yes, ma’am.


‘groom service’ | ding-dong! a special delivery just for you, this deeply satisfying violet makes all your dreams come true.


‘coming together’ | I love you, and you love me. sigh! with you and this lavish pink bouquet, life truly is a bed of roses.

Also, so sorry if my swatches aren’t all the same lighting or pose, I did them between travelling over the past month. Usually Bridal shades are a bit of a pain to work with as some of them are very sheer, but I have to say there are a few gems in this collection. What do you think?

The essie Bridal Collection will be available as of April 12, 2016 across Canada.
