Pretty Up Your Wedding Day Nails

By, Published May 23, 2012

There is a not so secret place on every bride’s ever gorgeous body that is oh so very often underutilized when primping, styling, and fussing over! This top secret location you ask?! Why the nails silly!

I can’t tell you how frequently, almost religiously, I see brides wearing the lightest, most barely there nail colors possible. It’s almost as if they are worried that their very own pretty fingers could steal the show! But we all know this isn’t possible. Because the bride, glowing, in her dream wedding dress will undoubtedly be the showstopper.

I’m here to tell you that the right nail art, design, color choice or glitter enhancement can elevate the average bride right into the swoon-worthy editorial magazine shoot category and caliber, so I’d like to encourage you to throw caution to the wind when it comes to your wedding day nails!

I’ve curated a collection of some dream-worthy nails to completely make your heart go pitter patter!  Florals, soft mattes/suedes, heavy glitters, chevron & wavy chevron, even ombre stains are quick highlights of some of the bridal beauty inspiration you can expect here. And whether you want to rock some amazing nails yourself, or completely gussy up your girls, these styles are fashion forward and divine!

Which nail styles are your personal favorites, and which ones are you excited to explore? Personally, I am loving the Caviar nails in the last photo. Black is the new black when the magical light-reflective texture of the beads comes into play…LOVE!
