Your wedding is the one single day that people will be looking at your nails the most- everyone wants to see the ring! Top off your bridal look with a chic manicure and you’ll be taking the term ‘give your hand in marriage’ to a whole new level. Here’s a few of my favorite wedding nail art designs to get you inspired for your big day.
This design could not be simpler! OPI’s Pirouette My Whistle is a clear polish with silver sparkles and at $9.50, it’s an inexpensive and dazzling nail design that you can do on your own.
This manicure takes French tips to a metallic level. With a pink base and gold tips, this look channels Lauren Conrad’s gold French manicure that she posted on Instagram. Here’s a simple tutorial to DIY this look for yourself.
And while we’re on gold on pink nail polish, try combining gold stripes with one nail of sparkles. This would look great in combinations of other colors with gold or silver accents, like clear with silver sparkles or for a modern twist, a dark grey with silver sparkles as pictured below.
For a charming manicure to celebrate your wedding day, incorporate an element of your wedding into your nail design, such as a ring, your wedding dress and his tux, or a wedding phrase.
Say ‘I do” with your ring finger and plenty of bling on your nails! Unless you’re crazy talented and can write beautifully on your nails, you should get them professionally done for the best results.
How cute are these nails with a bridal gown and a tux? These look great next to black and white nails with hearts, or for a simpler design, paint your thumb, index, and pinky nails pink with small sparkles. Julep has a great tutorial for this look that can be found here.
For a less formal wedding (or for the weeks before your ‘I do’s’), give your nails a little sass with the phrase “Keep Calm and Say I Do” printed on them. Buy these stickers on YR Nails here.
Add some elegance to your wedding nails with opal and caviar! This is Essie nail polish in Marshmallow and Shine of the Times with one nail of clear nail caviar beads. Read Lacquer and Lattes’ tutorial on this beautiful design here.
Nothing says wedding like a little bit of lace! This design would be nearly impossible if not for nail stickers. You can order white lace stickers (or any other sticker design imaginable) online or check out your local drugstore or beauty supply.
This won’t cover your old, new, or borrowed, but this manicure definitely counts as blue! Once again, you can highlight your ring finger with another color or sparkle. Take your design up a notch with a monogram nail sticker with your new initials! Create your custom nail stickers with your own letters, font, and color on Etsy from Sophie Rayes.
Finally, take a look at these nails! The design by The Nailasaurus is called ‘Lady Luck‘, but I’m sure you won’t need any of that your wedding day. This blue manicure could work for any old, new, borrowed, blue wedding, but is especially fitting for an Indian themed wedding.
So get inspired by these lovely polishes and nail your wedding look with a head turning manicure!
