Essie Gel Couture Bridal 2017 Collection: Review and Swatches
For Summer 2017, Essie has partnered up with the legendary fashion designer Monique Lhuillier to create a gorgeous Gel Couture range full of wedding-friendly hues. Ranging from a soft sheer white to a rich berry cream, the Essie Gel Couture Bridal 2017 Collection is available now and I've got swatches to share with you! To read on, click.....

Sage You Love Me:
This is a unique soft sea foam green with a nice and creamy finish. The formulation is a tad sheer so for a few nails I needed three coats for a perfectly opaque finish.

Sage You Love Me | Two to Three Coats with No Top Coat
Dress is More:
This is a sheer white with the teeniest hint of pink. The formulation is very sheer and patchy. For the swatches below, I used three coats.

Berry in Love:
A gorgeous berry plum cream, Berry in Love is sheerer than I would have preferred. The formulation is nice and creamy but with two coats, there were still a bit of uneven patchiness.

Blush-worthy:
A sheer baby pink, Blush-worthy is sprinkled with a dash of irregularly-shaped pearlescent glitter flecks. The formulation is not bad, two coats gave a nice and even coverage.
