The Essie Bridal 2016 Collection, which is currently available, has colours that interest me more than the ones from previous years. (It could be because there’s a green…and you know that there’s always a spot in my heart for it.)
As a whole, the Essie Bridal 2016 Collection makes me think of spring blossoms. And while many brides sport pink, peach, or white on their nails as they walk down the aisle, I think it’s refreshing that Essie included a purple, a green, and a bolder colour.
What colour did you or would you wear on your nails for the Big Day?
When it came to the formula, Mrs Always-Right (dusty rose) was the most pigmented and only needed two coats. (It figures that she’s ‘always right’…hehe!)
Tied for second best were Passport to Happiness (green), Groom Service (purple), and Between the Seats (pale grey lilac), which looked their best with two to three coats.
In last place were Steal His Name (peach) and Coming Together (pink), which I needed to use three coats to fully cover the nail. (Tip: To get better coverage with these, I suggest that you wait several minutes in between coats. If you just slap on each layer, you might get slight bald patches in some areas of your nails.)
Later in this post, you’ll see some bottle shots and close-up swatches of every colour in the Essie Bridal 2016 Collection. Additionally, I’ve included the official press release, in case you want to read the colour story for further details.

Introducing the Essie 2016 Bridal Collection
Take off. Check-in. Bliss out. You’ve got two tickets to paradise, but why not start the honeymoon right now and canoodle the whole way there? That’s right: you’re just married and love is in the air – and in the taxi, too. The ceremony was perfect – seeing the whole family coming together was just so magical. The dress. The shoes. The perfect essie shade. It was everything you dreamed of, but now it’s time to focus on what’s really important: each other. Oh, wait. What’s really important is that you are mrs always-right!
The essie Bridal 2016 Collection is thrilled to present six shades of bridal perfection. This blissful palette is a passport to happiness that will take brides on a love-fueled holiday of lifetime. The romantic grey lilac of between the seats adds an element of surprise when you kiss and fly. Perhaps you’ll consider going for a deeper shade of amour with a rich, satisfying violet or entrance-making shade of fierce terracotta rose. However you colour your honeymoon, essie’s bridal 2016 collection is committed to making your wildest fashion dreams come true. Bon voyage as you embark on the journey of a lifetime!
The first day of the rest of our lives is finally here! Everyone is coming together to watch me steal his name. After our big day, we’ll wave good-bye and hop on a plane with our passport to happiness and each other. I can’t wait to hold hands and kiss between the seats the entire flight. As soon as we check into our honeymoon suite I’m going to order groom service. I get what I want, when I want. Just call me mrs always right!

Which colour in the Essie Bridal 2016 Collection stands out to you the most? Are you surprised that they didn’t include a traditional blue for ‘something borrowed’? If you could add a colour to this bridal collection, what would it be?
These are all so pretty! Between the Seats, Passport to Happiness, and Groom Service especially caught my eye. I think I might have to pick those up when I see them. They all look great on you. Thanks for sharing them with us!
Glad you like these. They have a beautiful spring vibe to them!
If you get the pink or peach, just be careful because those polishes needed more coats to get even.
I’ve noticed for the past few bridal collections, Essie has been moving away from the traditional bridal light pinks, creams, etc. and is including a wider variety of colors. I particularly love the light green and both purples in this collection–such pretty spring colors!
Good observation! 🙂 You’re totally right. Before they used to do more traditional bridal colours, so it was great to see a green (i.e. non-conventional bridal shade) was incorporated into the mix!
Very pretty pastel colors! They make me think of Easter!
Yes! I can see how they’d fit right in with an Easter theme! 🙂
