The nude wedding manicure has reigned supreme for so long that it almost goes unquestioned. But the times they-are-a-changin’. Enter new wave wedding manicures: real pressed flowers, precision glitter, gold leaf and marble effect. Yes, you’re knee deep in wedding planning, but we recommend bumping nails to the top of your ‘to do’ list. Mainly because it beats re-doing your seating plan for the fifteen millionth time.
Sure, you can’t go wrong with a classic nude or off-white, but with so many elegant ways to jazz up a manicure you might as well add a little bit of flare to your fingertips on the big day. We’re not talking neon talons or OTT nail art, we’re talking subtle, low-key accents that add serious impact to your overall look.
The thing we really love about this trend? There are no rules; it’s all about experimenting and finding something that feels more you. So – go on, try an asymmetric negative space design, go rogue with rhinestones or dip those tips in glitter. And if all this talk of mixing it up freaks you out, you can still stick to a classic bridal colour palette and add a subtle modern twist. Our advice? Try out a few designs before the day – because it’s fun and because you might find that the statement bridal nail is where it’s at.
