Nail your wedding day manicure with our guide to the most gorgeous shades
You’ve spent hours trialling your up-do and chosen that specific shade of lipstick, but you may not have got as far as thinking about your nails. With the photographer snapping away as you sip that champagne, sign the register and, of course, exchange rings, your hands will be in the frame like never before.
This week, The Beauty Bible brings you the guide to the most glamorous nails to suit your bridal style. Whether you’re thinking of nude and natural, glimmer and glitz or bright and bold, we have your go-to guide to the shades to suit.
Eternal Optimist: Essie
For a little colour that isn’t overwhelming, this subtle pink is classic and timeless. It’s perfectly suited to a feminine, romantic bride, and the fact that it was the colour of choice for Jenny Packham’s 2015 Bridal Runway Show gives it that extra seal of approval.
My Old Flame: Deborah Lippmann
Make a bold statement with a strong shade of red, emulating the glamour of a Hollywood siren. We love the idea of matching your nails to your colour scheme, so this would make a fabulous choice for a City of London themed wedding.
Incandescent: Tom Ford
For a bride looking for glitter and glamour whilst retaining sophistication, look no further than Incandescent by Tom Ford. Providing that glamorous touch of sparkle without being overbearing, the light-reflecting shimmer will show-off that new ring to perfection.
Why not make your manicure your ‘Something Blue’ with Nars’ stunning shade? Injecting a splash of vibrant colour into your wedding day look, this colour is playful and fun without compromising on style and grace: after all, it is almost a Tiffany Blue!
When you’re choosing a classic nude colour, stay faithful to a timeless brand such as Chanel. Secret epitomises sophisticated luxury, and is the ideal choice for a traditional bride. What’s more, we can personally vouch for its durability, meaning a hard-wearing, long-lasting manicure can be firmly ticked off your pre-wedding ‘To Do’ list.
