Essie Weingarten, founder and creative director of essie cosmetics, chats with StyleList about the alluring colors and textures found in Carlos Miele's Fall 2011 collection -- and how color is important to her as a nail maven.

Weingarten also dishes on (and gives out samples during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) from her new nail polish line, the Bridal Collection. Available this April, the collection is comprised of four polishes -- including our favorites, First Dance (a true red) and Borrowed and Blue (an opaque blue).
