Along with perfect makeup and hairstyle, the nail art or nail color also takes part in your bridal look. From neutral colors to unique and intriguing patterns and glitters – you can put everything together that will compliment your style and wedding look. Make it perfect, and keep in mind that your nails will be in some of the photos, where you can see them in years from now. Bridal nail designs, too, are fabulous, and you can wear them after the wedding as well. That is why women adore them.
One to two days before the wedding, you can get your nails done to avoid rushing. But then, you still have the option to have them done in the morning of the wedding. Here are some of our favorite picks. Prepare to get inspired.
Neutral Bridal Nails
Traditional yet timeless. The simpler the design is, the more elegant it looks. You can grow your nails out just past your fingertips, fashion them in round or square shape, and complete the look with shiny and natural gel nail polish. The royal wedding of 2011, Kate Middleton’s bridal nail polish was something very neutral, a barely-there pink, and a sheer beige tone. To this date, neutral shade is highly appreciated by many.
Matte with a Bit of Glitter
The shorter, the better – you should always have this in mind when you choose your bridal nail design. A wedding is all about celebrating love, so you should show that on your nails as well. Matte blush pink nail polish coats the fingernails while rose gold glitter forms a nail art word “love,” creating a gorgeous look.
