Collection: 2013, Bridal (Spring)
Using My Maiden Name, from Essie’s 2013 Bridal collection, is inspired by the lovely hydrangea. It’s a cool, blue-toned, medium wisteria-purple with gorgeous, fine pink shimmer. Not quite “something blue” but it would be amazing on some bridal tips or toes! It’s not my best color, but I really love how pretty and feminine this polish is.
This polish applied reasonably smoothly. The photo shows two thin coats. It’s not fully opaque (but I wouldn’t exactly call it semi-sheer), so if you want full coverage, you’ll need three thin coats or two thicker ones.
