Nail your wedding day manicure with the best bridal styles
It’s Friday, and we’re set for another festive weekend! The sun may not be shining so brightly (have you had snow where you are? Yorkshire’s seen some wintry skies!) but, for many of you, your big day is on the horizon. And we have our fingers crossed for sunshine for you!
If your wedding is rapidly approaching, it’s time for that last-minute bridal beauty prep. And with that comes a beautiful manicure.
Your hands will be centre stage throughout the day. From exchanging rings to raising a toast, your photographer is sure to get your fingers in the frame. So, you need to make sure your manicure is just perfect. After all, everyone will want to see the second shiny new ring on that finger!
Let us help you out this week, with The Beauty Bible’s guide to nail styles and shapes for your big day.
Short and Sweet
Feeling a bit stressed out ahead of your big day? You might have lots of last-minute prep to do. It could be honeymoon packing, putting your centrepieces together or wanting to make sure your dress fits perfectly…there are plenty of hands-on jobs! If you’re the busy bride, keep your nail style short, sweet and neat. There’ll be no fear of them catching or breaking, and they’ll still look elegant when you’re unwrapping those wedding gifts!
Long and Luscious
Looking for a little more glamour? You may be a bride who wants long and lovely nails. Professional and sophisticated nail extensions will give you that elegance you’re looking for from head to toe. Why not go for a luxurious French Manicure? Of course, you’ll have to take care not to damage your nails in the final days before the wedding. However, that might just be the excuse you need to sit back, relax and toast your hard work before you say ‘I Do!’
Cute and Colourful
Feel your all-white outfit needs a little lift? Your nail style is one fun way to bring a little colour to your bridal look whilst still maintaining elegant glamour. Choose a shade to match your colour scheme; tie-in with your bridesmaids’ dresses, or match the flowers in your bouquet. Whether you’re adding colour to long or short nails, just make sure your manicure is neat and tidy. You don’t want the photographer’s lens on the colour chips!
Glitz and Glamour
Hassle free nails, with a little extra sparkle? You might like to add some subtle nail art. Of course, we love a little luxury here at The Wedding Affair, so added sparkle is one of our favourite ideas. Perhaps try some subtle glitter or a delicate gem on that all important ring finger? Just remember not to go too outlandish or over the top. Keep it classy and make sure your nail style stands the test of time in your photos.
We’d love to see your bridal nail style. What shapes and colours did you go for? Send them through to us; it is, of course, the perfect excuse to show off your big day and find yourself a Real Wedding bride!
