Thinking beyond two coats of nude polish for your big day? Here are some of our favourite wedding manicure ideas, as spotted on Instagram…
This mix-and-match mani is the perfect balance, in our opinion – it’s modern and stylish without being too in-your-face or dated. We love the silver stamp detail on the middle nail, and you can’t go wrong with a glittery ring finger nail when it comes to a wedding manicure!
This Instagrammer achieved this pretty blue lace look through the use of nail wraps – they’re surprisingly easy to apply (a LOT easier than hand-painting, anyway), and will stay put long after the big day. Plus, this mani would double up as your ‘something blue’ – bonus!
If you’re a nail novice and want to keep your wedding mani relatively simple, then this look could be perfect for you! White is clean and modern, and will look gorgeous against darker skintones or tanned brides. Simply pop your wedding colour on your ring finger nail to mix things up a bit.
Another simple yet classic idea is to use a shimmering or holographic nail polish, either on its own or over the top of a white or nude. It’s a lot easier to apply and remove than glitter, but it’ll add an extra bit of sparkle to your wedding day look.
Pale pink is a classic wedding day nail colour, but we like how this nail artist has put a modern twist on the look by making the look matte. The delicate silver glitter detail is a fun take on the traditional French mani, too.
Don’t forget your pedicure! We love how this bride took her pretty floral nail art down to her toes, too – and when you know there are going to be shoe shots, why would you not? Bonus points for the cute Charlotte Mills shoes.
When your rings have this much bling, you have to make sure your nails match up! We love a pale blue wedding manicure, and the silver ombre glitter affect adds sparkle while still showing off that colour.
