Reader Alli of Ali McBally just spotted the new Essie Using My Maiden Name Collection and was nice enough to let me share her pic:

Essie 2013 Bridal Collection: Using My Maiden Name

There are just four shades in this collection:

Using My Maiden Name (lavender)
Meet Me at the Altar (lilac)
No Baggage Please (pale pink)
My Better Half (dark pink)

Now, this collection might seem a bit dull to some of you, but you MUST see the swatches of Using My Maiden Name because there's gorgeous pink hidden shimmer lurking in this polish! Click here for swatches of all four shades in this collection (there's shimmer in My Better Half too).

Have you spotted this collection at any of your local drugstores yet? Thoughts? I NEED Using My Maiden Name!

Thanks again, Alli, for the great picture. I really appreciate it!


  1. I want them! So much for my no-buy! LOL

  2. I'm so glad you mentioned how beautiful the swatches were for Using My Maiden Name...I never would have given it a second glance but I'm SO glad I did! Gorgeous!

  3. I agree, I need Using My Maiden Name too! It is gorgeous and I am slightly obsessed with this bluish-purple color right now.

  4. Oh how I hope these surface at Target, being I have a Target exclusive coupon to save $2 on any Essie nail polish (exp 5/20). UMMN is soooo pretty!

  5. I almost bought Using My Maiden Name the other day! Love that polish!

  6. I actually bought baggage please, and it was SUPER SUPER STREAKY, even after three coats It was still streaky not opaque either. When I saw the swatch of it in the store I died in love, but not worth the hype.

  7. Just an FYI: it looks like Dermstore has this collection for purchase online with free shipping.

  8. I need Using My Maiden Name. I kept my maiden name, and the colour is inspired by blue hydrangeas, which were my wedding flowers. PERFECT.

  9. I wonder how hidden the shimmer is? Does it need the sun/bright lights to show up or would it show up easily indoors as well?

  10. I need all of these. I wonder if they're at CVS yet.

  11. Using My Maiden Name reminds me a lot of Essie's She's Picture Perfect from last year. I'd love to see a comparison if anyone has both. So pretty and perfect for spring!

  12. I just bought Using My Maiden Name at TJ Maxx for $4.99.
