One of the little details that can make a big difference on your wedding day is your nails. Yes, brides have plenty of other heavy lifting to do to make sure their day is amazing (to help out in other areas of the beauty department, we’ve also rounded up a variety of wedding hairstyles for long and short hair and makeup looks). But for now, let’s talk about manicures. The big day calls for beautiful nail designs in elegant shapes to enhance the occasion for the bride-to-be.
Those who witness these romantic affairs will appreciate every little loving detail of the day, including the dashing manicure. From pre-ceremony photos to the moment at the altar to the classic bouquet toss, there will be plenty of nail-sparking moments.
Yes, wedding traditions have given us a penchant for classic styles like simple nudes, French manicures, and soft cream hues, but some brides believe in going the non-traditional route. Manicurists have since taken this into account and have gone above and beyond with creative twists on both artificial and natural nails.
To save you from scrolling through #weddingnails, we asked some of our favorite artists to share their favorite wedding day applications, how to make pretty abstract designs, and how they place crystals in solid lines so effortlessly. Here are 21 options that will inspire you.
