When it comes to wedding-day manicures, brides can all agree that Essie products are among the best out there. From nail treatments to the brand's long-wear Gel Couture collection—not to mention iconic shades like Topless & Barefoot and Ballet Slippers—the bridal-friendly line never fails us. And now there's a new collection brides-to-be will clamor over, and the best part is that it's inspired by royalty. Talk about feeling like a total princess on the big day!
Essie's Enchanted Gel Couture Collection features six shades inspired by fairy-tale romance and princess charm. We're looking at you, Meghan Markle. But seriously, this is one collection that every bride-to-be needs to scoop up. There's a shade in the line to seamlessly take a mani from engagement photos to bachelorette weekend. Besides, who doesn't want the high-shine finish of a professional gel manicure in two easy steps you can do right at home?
Kicking things off is Matter of Fiction, the blush pink you can don throughout engagement season to be prepared in the event of the big question (wink, wink) or when you're in the mood to show off your sparkler in a ring selfie. Princess Charming is a gorgeous rose-mauve with nutmeg undertones that looks gorgeous as a nude on darker skin tones. The name says it all too: We can just see Meghan Markle rocking this hue on her nails. Rounding out the pastels is Once Upon a Time, the romantic icy-blue shade to consider wearing on your toes as your Something Blue or to play up a winter mani.
Feeling festive? The moss-green Spellbound is packed with gold shimmer for a lust-worthy finish, while Daring Damsel is the brushed champagne metallic we've longed for. (It's not too opulent—the perfect mix of opaque and beautiful.) The perfect antidote to this collection of feminine hues? The vibrant mahogany red Good Knight, which was made for date night and girls' night out. Consider this the must-have nail collection of the season.
