Designer Reem Acra is renowned for her exquisitely detailed and boundary pushing bridal collections. Her shows are always a highlight of New York Bridal Fashion Week with her fashion-forward gowns routinely topping our best of list season after season.
Acra has turned her incredible attention to detail to the world of beauty, partnering with Essie to launch a six-shade, limited edition bridal lineup of Gel Couture polishes that are fit for a princess bride (paging Meghan Markle!). “I dreamed this wedding collection up as a royal affair—a grand party celebrating a big day,” Acra shares. The palette she created sparkles just like one of her incredible gowns but also has an element of surprise with the choice and finish of the shades.
Rita Remark, global lead educator and lead nail artist for Essie Canada loves this collection for brides because it’s unexpected. “Straying from the traditional demure sheer nudes and pinks, Reem Acra had the entire family in mind when she created her decadent collection of metallics, bold colour and shimmers,” Remark says. “It appeals to a modern bride as well as her bridesmaids, mother and guests. As an artist I love that each shade is distinctive, from a rich magenta pearl to a sheer white that twinkles with flecks of gold.”
Read on to explore the collection’s stunning six shades, which launch this April.
