Whether you are getting married or attending a wedding this summer, you will want your nails to look amazing. This wedding season, we’ve pulled our ideas and top tips together to give you all the wedding nail inspiration you need.
Wedding make-up is important and nails especially so. If you are the bride to be, think of all the people who will want to look at your sparkly new ring – not to mention the close-up photographs!
TRADITIONAL BRIDAL NAILS
A French manicure is a wedding day favourite. Elegant, clean and timeless; a gel French manicure can look beautiful with any dress or outfit.
Nude colours are really on-trend for 2014/15. A block nude can be a slightly bolder choice than the French manicure but still gentle and elegant. Check out Evening Sand, Fuzzy Navel, Pink Champagne and Babydoll Pink for romantic nude block colours.
A TWIST ON THE TRADITIONAL WEDDING NAIL IDEAS
For a wedding nail with added glamour, use the nail glitter puffers. Go for all over sparkle for a really eye catching nail or try a glitter tip for a more subtle but beautiful sparkle.
Bridesmaid’s nails are something you can have lots of fun with. Match the gel polish colour to the bridesmaid’s dresses or choose a bright, contrasting shade to really make a statement. Heirloom Lilac, Island Oasis and Pink Bouquet are just a few great bridesmaid nail colours.
If you need something more unusual or want to find an exact colour match, don’t forget you can mix SensatioNail gel polishes to create your own colours. Take a look at our gel polish colour mixing guide to find out how.
WEDDING NAIL TRENDS
As well as block nude colours, we love this year’s trend of having an accent nail on the ring finger. Go for a statement colour or a beautiful unique wedding nail design to bring your wedding manicure to life.
White is still a popular nail shade and won’t be going anywhere for a while. Simple but bold, a white nail can look fantastic against a crisp white dress or outfit – and looks fab against all skin tones.
Something Blue is the perfect ‘something blue’ for you to wear on your wedding day and makes a great gift for a bride-to-be. Wear it on your toes and not only will you will have secretly met with tradition but your feet will be honeymoon ready!
