More than the final handful of years, nails have turn into a rather critical component of your bridal appear. Shying away from the classic French mani, several contemporary brides are now opting for solid colours, from all-natural taupes to bold reds.
But with red carpet nails obtaining ever-much more adventurous (Zooey Deschanel is the queen of offbeat finger-suggestions) and Shellac and Minx and other gel polishes creating inventive looks a lot more sturdy, brides are selecting to show their playful side with vibrant hues and quirky nail art.
Which is why Georgie at Polished2Perfection has nailed it (sorry, sorry, could not resist) with this sweet and stylish wedding nail inspiration shoot.
Captured beautifully by Her Lovely Heart, (see their final gorgeous inspiration shoot right here) these 3 distinctive appears, offer a plethora of ideas to play about with, from popping some colour into your bridal style, to adding a little sparkle to your appear. Watch out for some fantastic tips from Georgie too…
Flip the French
“If you like the French manicure appear, why not step outside the box and try it in a colour that matches your flowers or bridesmaids dresses?
Attempt a base colour that matches one particular and the tip in a shade that matches the other. It can appear remarkable with the appropriate colour combination”
Be Playful with Polka
“If you want one thing a tiny much more subtle why not select a pastel or nude shade that matches your flowers or make-up and add a handful of soft white polka dots on top?
I think this adds a unique touch to your bridal nails and looks romantic and feminine.”
All That Glitters is Gold
“It is important with any wedding manicure to tie it in with a colour scheme, and I would undoubtedly advise having a expert nail technician look soon after your hands and nails for your big day.
Have them completed as close to the day as possible to ensure image perfection, though at least 24 hours allow them to dry completely.
For a longer-lasting look, opt for a gel manicure that dries instantaneously and can be accomplished up to a week before and will final for 2-3 weeks.”
Wow. How chic? The styling from London Bride is just perfection!
I love the notion of adding a touch of glitter on a matte pastel nail, it appears genuinely specific without getting as well showy. And I believe the polka dots would be actually beautiful on bridesmaids also.
Thanks so significantly to Georgie for her beneficial advice and to Polished2Perfection and Her Lovely Heart for sharing this gorgeous shoot. (And for leaving us craving cake pops!)
