Monique Lhuillier has been helping brides (and bridesmaids) look their best for years with her stunning gowns and wedding accessories. And Essie has been slaying the nail-polish game for even longer. So when the two iconic brands join forces to create—what else?—a line of bridal nail polishes, you know the result is going to be polished to perfection.
The line of Gel Couture nail polishes features six soft shades: two neutral off-whites, the prettiest pale pink, a rose gold, a sage green, and a berry that pops. And each color features a cute bridal pun for a name: Blush-Worthy, Dress Is More, Berry in Love, To Have & to Gold, Sage You Love Me, and Lace to the Altar. "I created shades fit for every bride, a perfect complement to unique bridal couture and natural beauty," Monique Lhuillier said about the limited-edition collection. "On my wedding day, that meant a traditional soft-pink-based manicure to complement the intricate detailing on the bodice and skirt of my dress. For some brides, that means a pop of berry red or metallic gold to balance a simple, elegant silhouette. This collection has something for every bride, bringing that 'perfect fit' feeling right down to her fingertips."
In addition to being beautiful, Essie's Gel Couture polish promises to last chip-free for up to 14 days—meaning it will get you through your rehearsal dinner, wedding day, and even honeymoon. And this formula doesn't require the use of a UV lamp, like typical gel polishes do, so it's safer and healthier for your hands. A true win-win.
The collection hits stores and nail salons in April 2017 and will retail for $11.50—making it, perhaps, the most affordable part of your entire bridal look.
