Your perfect wedding day look requires attention to every detail. You’ll be focusing on your dress, shoes, bridal accessories, makeup, and hair. And we know you’ll want your nails to be on point for your walk down the aisle, too. We sourced some of the prettiest manicures around to inspire you to focus in on your favorite style for your special day. From Matte to Sparkly we have beautiful options to fit every brides’ vibe.
MAD FOR MATTE
With matte nails, it’s all about a flat finish that delivers major style in a very non-shiny way. A pinky taupe matte mani is a subtle way to “bring it” with a finished yet understated nail.
A softer take on matte, “Sue” by Zoya in champagne gold, features a multi-hued oyster shell pearl fleck in a velvety matte finish. So pretty and bridal.
For a more dramatic manicure, try a navy polish. We picture this at a luxe fall wedding. Preferably holding a greenery bouquet.
We adore the lace nail trend for a sweet and romantic mani. Nailstamp4fun created a lovely look featuring lace nails along with a single jeweled accent nail.
Lace patterns are inherently romantic so they pair perfectly with a wedding day polish.
PERFECT PALE PINK
Pale pink is, we believe, the quintessential and classic nail polish color for brides. Our pick for the prettiest pink is hands down Essie’s “Ballet Slippers.”
After all, this $9 polish WAS Meghan Markle’s pick on her recent wedding day to Prince Harry.
Has anyone else noticed how popular the color yellow is lately? We are seeing it on Pinterest, on the Gram, on cool chicks around town. Even every tv commercial seems drenched in variations of the sunny shade. We love the idea of an adorably fresh and sweet pale yellow hue for a wedding day look, like this shade “Meet A Boy As Cute As Can Be,” by OPI. Love this lemony shade? Hurry it is on clearance now at Sally Beauty for less than four dollars!!!!
ORBIT NAILS, THE LATEST TREND
Looking for something cutting edge and trendy for your wedding nails? Then say “hello” to Orbit Nails – where each nail features a thin outline of color around a solid oval of another color. We adore this tiffany blue edged with black version of the polish.
Or try a classic black and white combo for a more traditional take on the trend:
YOU GOTTA LOVE A FRENCH MANICURE
You can never go wrong with a french manicure, a style which features a band of white polish across the tip of the nail and a contrasting clear or pale polish underneath. Your look will say classy, clean and perfectly groomed with a french mani.
We really like this one by trendsetting Greek nail salon File and Style. So crisp and polished.
WHITE ON WHITE
A pure white manicure and matching pedicure is a perfect pick for brides. File and Style does bridal right.
THE PERFECT BURGUNDY FOR FALL
The perfect shade for fall weddings (and for fall anything really), is the legacy Essie color “Bordeaux.” The deep red wine lacquer is one of the company’s original polish colors from way back in 1981. But hey, when you design the absolute ultimate burgundy color you can keep on making it year after year. And it will continue being rediscovered by fashionistas year after year. This intoxicating manicure would be amazing for any bride. And us. We need this.
Are you a blingy bride who loves some glam and sparkle? Well, then you will gravitate toward these glittery manicures.
We think these gorgeous silver glitter dusted nails by the creative sisters of Canadian nail company KnailArt would make any glam bride happy.
Whatever style captures your heart, dear brides, we do hope you found some inspiration in the latest nail trends. As for us, we are headed out to get the Essie “Bordeaux” asap, after all, we wholeheartedly agree with the philosophy of Audrey Hepburn who famously said, “I believe in manicures.”
