Over the last few years, nails have turn into a rather essential element of your bridal appear. Shying away from the classic French mani, several contemporary brides are now opting for strong colours, from natural taupes to bold reds.
But with red carpet nails acquiring ever-more adventurous (Zooey Deschanel is the queen of offbeat finger-guidelines) and Shellac and Minx and other gel polishes making inventive looks more sturdy, brides are choosing to show their playful side with bright hues and quirky nail art.
Which is why Georgie at Polished2Perfection has nailed it (sorry, sorry, could not resist) with this sweet and fashionable wedding nail inspiration shoot.
Captured beautifully by Her Lovely Heart, (see their last gorgeous inspiration shoot right here) these 3 special appears, offer you a plethora of concepts to play around with, from popping some colour into your bridal style, to adding a little sparkle to your look. Watch out for some fantastic guidelines from Georgie too…
Flip the French
“If you like the French manicure appear, why not step outside the box and try it in a colour that matches your flowers or bridesmaids dresses?
Attempt a base colour that matches 1 and the tip in a shade that matches the other. It can look amazing with the appropriate colour combination”
Be Playful with Polka
“If you want some thing a little much more subtle why not select a pastel or nude shade that matches your flowers or make-up and add a few soft white polka dots on top?
I feel this adds a exclusive touch to your bridal nails and appears romantic and feminine.”
All That Glitters is Gold
“It is crucial with any wedding manicure to tie it in with a colour scheme, and I would certainly recommend obtaining a expert nail technician appear following your hands and nails for your big day.
Have them done as close to the day as feasible to make certain picture perfection, though at least 24 hours let them to dry completely.
For a longer-lasting look, opt for a gel manicure that dries instantly and can be accomplished up to a week before and will final for two-3 weeks.”
Wow. How chic? The styling from London Bride is just perfection!
I enjoy the idea of adding a touch of glitter on a matte pastel nail, it appears actually particular without getting as well showy. And I believe the polka dots would be actually gorgeous on bridesmaids too.
