essie gel couture wedding collection 2018

Each year I look forward to seeing who essie collaborates with for their Wedding Collection and this year it was none other than Reem Acra. This collection was inspired by the bride and her closest friends on her big day! All six polishes are meant to forgo tradition and instead bring a more modern look to the bride and her bridal parties fingertips. To see why I’m loving this collection so much scroll below!


From left to right: ‘Picture Perfect’, ‘You’re Golden’, ‘Moments to Mrs.’, ‘Getting Intricate’, ‘Daring Damsel’, and ‘Forever Family’.


This collection is currently available on Amazon as well as at other local retailers. I have linked each polish below so click on the blue text if you are interested in purchasing a polish #amazoninfluencer



‘Picture Perfect’ is a clean ivory white accented with golden shimmer. This polish is very sheer and even with three coats you can still see the nail line. This is perfect for the bride that wants a barely there look on her big day!



Next is ‘Getting Intricate’, a charming eggshell blue. This was the one that I was immediately drawn to from the collection and had to try first. The formula is perfect and it took two coats to reach this creamy blue. If you are getting married soon and are still looking for your ‘something blue’ then this might just be the polish for you!



‘You’re Golden’ is an eye catching light-burnished yellow gold. This one took two coats and applied easily without any balding or terrible streaking. This polish is good if you are looking for a true yellow gold color that applies easily.



‘Handmade of Honor’ is a smooth blush metallic tinted with a light rose. This is a true rose gold and it took two thin coats to reach perfect application. This gold is more subdued than the other gold in this collection and was the real winner for me out of the two as it looks more elegant on the nail.



The namesake of this collection is ‘Moments To Mrs.’, a dreamy orchid mauve embroidered with iridescent flakes. The flakes in this one are to die for and remind me of the iridescent flakes that are also in ‘Shine of the Times’. This one took three thin coats to build up to this beautiful orchid mauve. I think that if you get any polishes from this release this should be one of them due to how unique the color and texture are.



‘Forever Family’ is a pearly mulberry red laced with subtle violet blue undertones. This one reminds me of ‘Wrapped In Rubies’ from the regular essie line because it makes your nails look like gemstones. This one took two coats and is radiant when applied to the nail!
