Wedding season is upon us which means that brides everywhere are anxiously fine-tuning their dress, shoes, hair and makeup for their special day. This wedding season is close to my heart as April 7th marks 10 years of marriage for me. I can’t believe how quickly 10 years has flown by. It feels like just yesterday that I picked the perfect nail polish to compliment my engagement ring, and later wedding ring.  I chose essie mademoiselle and blanc for a classic french when I first got engaged, and then I wore essie A-list (a classic red), on my wedding day. Every year essie launches a new bridal collection that I can’t wait to get my hands on. This year essie introduces essie gel couture bridal collection by Monique Lhuillier.

What a stunning milky white polish. Even with the sheer factor of this hue, it covered perfectly in 2 coats.

This hue is the perfect frosty white that looks gorgeous with 3 coats, but is equally impressive layered on top of another darker colour.

I love a bride who breaks from the norm and wears something daring on her special day. How stunning is this perfect berry?

Yumminess (is that a word?) in a bottle. I love this classic blush with gold flecks suspended throughout. It covers beautifully in 2 coats.

How fantastic would this hue look paired with complimentary gold heels? I’m thinking these Jimmy Choos would be perfect. Love this shade!

This creamy green/grey is a gorgeous break from traditional nudes. Understated, yet so perfect.

I honestly don’t think that the essie gel couture bridal collection could be any more perfect. All six shades share the spotlight and if I were getting married again, I would find it difficult to choose. I think you’ll see me wearing dress is more on my 10 year anniversary!

essie gel couture bridal collection by Monique Lhuillier launches on April 18th 2017.

    Lindsay,
    What a gorgeous post! I love Blush Worthy and Berry in Love. Sage You Love Me is a very close runner-up. By the way, what types of flowers are those, peonies? David Austin roses?
    Thanks,
    Monique from New Orleans
