Essie Bridal Collection 2016

It's wedding season, so it's the perfect time to showcase the 2016 Bridal Collection from Etsy.

Between The Seats is a very pale gray crème polish with the slightest hint of lavender.


Coming Together is a sheer pink.  It's a bit deeper than most of the sheer pinks that I've seen, but there's nothing super special about it.

 
Steal His Name is a sheer peach.  This one I really liked.  It's refreshing to see a pretty peach shade in a sheer formula.  I used three coats to build it up a bit more. 

 
Groom Service is a violet crème polish and my favorite of this collection.  The formula was amazing and just look at that pretty shade of violet!
 
 
Passport To Happiness is a pale mint green with subtle shimmer.  This is my second favorite.  I have several mint shades in my collection, but the shimmer in this one makes it unique.
 
 
 
Mrs Always-Right is a terracotta rose crème polish.  It's not a favorite of mine.  The name is cute, but the color is just not my style.

Cirque Speckled and Sparkled Collection - My Picks

The Speckled and Sparkled Collection by Cirque is a collection of 10 limited edition shades in speckled cremes and sterling silver foiled holographics.  As you can see, I didn't chose any of the speckled polishes.  I prefer the sparkle!  They are made with fine sterling silver pigment which makes them sparkle much more than standard foil polishes.  My pictures don't do them justice!

Besos is a deep magenta sterling foil with a scattered holographic effect. This one is my favorite.  When I first put in on, two words came to mind..... Hello Gorgeous!


Cin Cin is a very reflective champagne/gold sterling foil with a scattered holographic effect.  This is a total stunner in person!

 
Saint Cloud is a silvered lavender sterling foil with a scattered holographic effect.


Oasis is a teal blue sterling foil with a scattered holographic effect.

OPI Soft Shades 2016 - My Picks

The 2016 Soft Shades Collection by OPI features 6 pastel crème polishes.  Here are my picks:

I Am What I Amethyst is a pastel periwinkle shade.  The name of this throws me off a bit since amethysts are deep purple, but regardless of the name I love this shade! It's flattering and unique to my collection.


This Cost Me A Mint is a mint green crème polish.  It's pretty much a doup for That's Hula-rious that OPI released last year in the 2015 spring/summer Hawaii collection.  So if you have that one, I would pass on this.

OPI New Orleans Collection - My Picks

Here are my picks from the Spring/Summer 2016 New Orleans Collection from OPI

I Manicure For Beads is a bright, yet dusty purple crème polish.


Let Me Bayou A Drink is a pale pink (almost white) with a bit of shimmer.

 
Spare Me A French Quarter? is a raspberry crème.  Love this one.  It's a beautiful shade for a pedicure.  This will be on my toes for sure!


Got Myself Into A Jam-balaya is a pink/coral crème.  This type of shade has been in a lot of polish collections this spring.


Rich Girls & Po-Boys is a bright blue crème.  This would also be a fun pedicure color!


She's A Bad Muffuletta! is a bright red crème and one of my top picks from this collection.  This is another one that would be great for a pretty summer pedicure.

Son Of A Nutcracker

Son Of A Nutcracker is part of the "Cheers" collection that China Glaze released for this past holiday season.  I didn't purchase it back then because it didn't look Christmassy to me.  It looked like something that should be in a spring or summer collection.  Recently, I found it on sale so I picked it up.  I'm so glad that I did.  It's a beautiful deep coral with orange shimmer that glows on the nail.  It's way more appropriate for spring and summer in my opinion and I'm enjoying it this time of year.  This would be a gorgeous pedicure color.  I'm glad that I didn't miss out on it!
