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.
