Essie Bridal 2016 {A Selection} Swatches & Review


Essie Bridal 2016

Hello readers,
Today I have two shades from Essie's 2016 Bridal collection to share with you. This collection features a range of pastels and soft shades. I picked out a pale bone creme and a mint green shimmer to add to my collection. Let's take a look at swatches.

Between The Seats

Between The Seats is a soft bone cream with lilac undertones. The formula had pros and cons. I found it was a bit patchy so I went with thicker coats to achieve an even finish. However, it only took two coats to become opaque which is great for a shade this light. This is a super pretty neutral. Photos show two coats of Between The Seats with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in daylight spectrum.

Passport To Happiness

Passport To Happiness is a pale mint green shimmer. The formula wasn't great. I found it thin and sheer. It went mostly opaque in two coats but I had to add a third to even out the finish. The final look is quite pretty and delicate but it takes some effort to get there. Photos show three coats of Passport To Happiness with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Conclusion

Both of these polishes are very soft and delicate but the formulas left something to be desired, especially Passport To Happiness. You can find Essie on


Happy polishing,
