Dear (future) bride 💍,
Okay, so we know you’ve probably got a thousand things on your mind right now. Will the guests be on time? How will the photos look? And, will those perfect wedding shoes you found online be uncomfy AF? (probably, yes). One thing that is often overlooked, though, is a killer set of wedding nails. Hear us out: if the ‘I do’s’ are the big moment of your day, then your wedding ring is *kind of* the protagonist (apart from the happy couple, of course). And, what’s a protagonist without a great supporting cast? Enter: your bridal nails. A perfect mani – not too flashy or bold to steal the show away from your dress or ring, but special enough for your big day – is the perfect accompaniment to your bridal look. Luckily – we’ve got a few wedding nail ideas we think you’ll love.
Nude nails might be a bridal classic when it comes to wedding nail trends, and a go-to for many a blushing bride. However, more and more brides are opting for something a little more out of the ordinary in 2022. From milky hues and modern french manicures to bridal nail art – there’s something to suit every bride’s taste and personality.
So, if you prefer a classic vibe for your wedding nails (but still want a bit of a twist) – opt for subtle yet glam baby boomer nails – a classy ombre update on the traditional nude mani. If you fancy something a bit more modern – a bridal version of the modern french manicure could be a winner. And, if you want your wedding nails to be a bit special (go on, it’s your big day) – opt for dreamy bridal nail art adorned with gold leaf or preserved flowers. So delicate, but *insanely* pretty. The icing on the cake, if you will (sorry).
OUR TOP TIP:
When it comes to a wedding, it’s a good idea to opt for gel or acrylic bridal nails (or another long-lasting option such as Apres Gel-X). They’ll stay glossy and chip-free for much longer (nobody wants to be thinking about chipped nails on their wedding day). Plus, you’ll have perfect nails through your honeymoon, too – win, win.
If you need some inspo or ideas – look no further. We’ve gathered some of our fave examples of bridal nails that you’ll most definitely want to say ‘I do’ to.
