essie bridal collection 2012

In one week, I will be sitting down to a delicious rehearsal dinner for my good friends Laura and Ryan’s wedding.

While there’s so much to do between now and next Saturday, I’m hoping that little details, like what color I have on my nails, won’t go unnoticed.

Essie, one of my favorite polish brands, released its 2012 bridal collection this spring. I’ve been eyeing it online for a while now, but have yet to decide if any of the four new colors will be a good fit for Laura’s wedding.

I’m leaning toward the first two, mostly because they are safe, yet pretty, polishes that won’t clash with plum-colored bridesmaids dresses. I’d probably wear them with just one light coat for a sheer effect that won’t be screaming for attention as I walk down the aisle with groomsman in tow.

Regardless, the collection, a mix of creamy, candy-colored hues, has some great polish colors that will work for you whether you’re saying “I Do” or saying “round two” at your next dinner date.
