Essie Winter 2013 Collection Photos and Information

I must say I am ready to ditch the bright corals and pinks of summer and dive into the rich hues of autumn and winter. One collection that has me swooning is the Essie Winter 2013 Collection hitting stores and salons this October 2013. I don’t think there’s a shade I don’t love in the bunch!

Group 2 essie Winter

When the cold wind blows, warm up with gorgeous colour. Now is the time to invest in a bold statement coat, because there’s nothing like the perfect ‘it’ coat to sashay through the slush in style. This season, I am so excited about the gorgeous, decadent furs and melt-my-heart cashmeres that are all the rage. So, I am bottling up the winter’s best – gorgeous angora like pastels and rich, seductive deeps for a collection to give you a luxurious lift when you need it most. In all my years of runway-watching, I’ve never seen such a spring-like array of winter outerwear. The predominating cocoon-like shapes feel like the world’s poshest armor, baffling the body against winter’s bite with a soft silhouette and even softer materials. So, whether you’re parka perfect or a shearling darling, the right coat of colour makes all the difference. Essie Weingarten

Essie Bridal 2013 Collection ~ Not Just for Brides! ~ Photos, Swatches, and Review


Brides Schmides. The Essie Bridal 2013 Collection is for everyone! These are certainly uber feminine shades but they need not be reserved for weddings only. This collection of soft, spring perfect shades is sure to bring out the innocence we all, most, some of us possess.

I had envisioned this collection being sheer but in fact they all offer opaque and even coverage in two coats. All four shades offer the most delicate, subtle shimmer with Using My Maiden Name offering an iridescent effect.

No Baggage Please - Positively rosy pink. A delicate pale petal pink.

Meet Me At The Alter - Romantic rendezvous lilac. 

My Better Half - Irresistible peony pink.

Using My Maiden Name – Pretty blue hydrangea.

EssieBridal2013Collection Are any of these shades calling your name? Available now.
