I sort of assumed that I could pick any of the pale Essie colors that I have come to know and love and call it a day.
But when I picked a dress that had a much warmer undertone than I was used to, I had to rethink many of my fave nail shades since they all have such a pink base that it would have looked weird against the dress.
And of course I just left it until the last minute when we held my bridal party manicure/pedicure session at the Townhouse Spa. During a MONSOON.
After comparing and debating the pros and cons of about a thousand pale shades, I settled on Essie Ador-a-Ball for my fingers, and OPI Mimosas for Mr and Mrs for my toes.
The former is a milky sheer color with just a hint of pink, while the latter is a creamier more opaque shade with more of a beige undertone. Both went perfectly with my dress and shoes, making my nails look sophisticated, but also not very noticeable.
The best part?
My manicure was perfect until the day I returned from my honeymoon.
