Pearls, Gems & Lace Nails are just made for weddings, add that delicate feminine twinkle to your finger nails and just enough sparkle to make your wedding ring really pop! When it comes to your wedding, it’s not enough to make sure your dress and hair are totally perfect: You also need to make sure your nails are looking their best. After all, your hands are basically the stars of the day—you’re putting a ring on your finger, after all!
Make a Statement with your Nails. Go for feminine sparkle with a soft pink manicure, silver hearts and crystals that spells out the words ‘LOVE YOU’ when held next to each other. This cute manicure idea is better for longer nails and is simple to do yourself as long as you have a steady hand for placing the crystals onto both your left and right hands. You can easily achieve this look by using a wooden stick with some tacky glue on the end to pick up the crystals or by using tweezers.

Colourful Wedding Nails. A great way of choosing your nail polish colour for your special day is to match them to your bridesmaids dresses for a subtle way of tying the whole look together, or matching them to your colour scheme. Many brides will just choose a pretty, neutral nude colour but pastels are just as pretty and still have the elegant style. If you wish to add a bit of glamour, just enhancing the look of one nail on each hand is usually enough as you don’t want to distract from the main attraction that is your wedding ring!
Choosing to have an accent nail is a great way of adding a bit of fun to your nails as well as making a statement which will look fabulous in the wedding photos as you can have your photographer focus on the accent in a photo. Nail transfers are inexpensive to buy or you can simply use nail art pens or improvise and use cocktail sticks, which are often kept in the back of your kitchen cupboard, dipped into a darker coloured nail polish to write or draw with. Accent nails usually look the best on simple and light nail polish colours so think pinks and pastels!
Keeping it simple but with a vibrant colour is a fun option as it will really stand out against the simple colour of your wedding dress and really pop! Matching bright or vibrant colours to the Season or your colour scheme is a great way of coordinating in an effortless way.
Bridal nails don’t have to be boring and they certainly shouldn’t be forgotten as part of your finished look. A lot of attention is on your hands at your wedding as you will have people coming over constantly asking to see the ring and shaking your hands for congratulations!
