Hot New Nail Polish Collections for the Bride & Bridesmaids, from Essie

Nail polish is the bride’s best indulgence! When the planning gets crazy and you need a little treat, but the budget’s stretched so that you can feed your guests and wear a great gown, get a great nail polish!

Here are some fabulous colors to enjoy now, and also wear during the wedding! Bridesmaids can wear vivid colors, and so can you! And the rehearsal dinner’s a don’t-miss chance to show off your mani/pedi with a pretty shade that pops!

The first grouping here is Essie’s new Wedding Collection — finally, someone’s come out with the perfect shade of blue! I always thought other companies’ blues had a bit of a Smurf quality to them, but this is clear-sky, clear-ocean perfection!

From the site: “The new colors of this mini-collection, four in all, will be launched this month. They include a precious yet chic light blue (Borrowed & Blue), a flattering nude tone with a hint of pink (Made To Honor), sheer sweetheart pink (Better Together) and a bold, captivating red (First Dance), which all are perfect, full and classic. The collection comes at a price US$8.00 each with a size 0.5oz (15ml).”

And then, of course, there’s nail polish for you Wild Thing brides and bridesmaids, in vibrant shades that are you. Take a look at their Braziliant collection, and shop at!

Brides and bridesmaids, tell me which shade is perfect for you, and you could win it! I’m sending one Essie bottle and a copy of my book Bridesmaid on a Budget to a winner chosen from the Comments below. Vote as often as you’d like by 8/1/11…I know you love more than one color! :]
