Bridal Beauty: 3 Must-See Wedding Day Manicures

You’ve picked out the hair, the makeup, the dress, and the shoes…but what about the manicure!? A touch a shimmer here, a fresh twist on the classic French there—our must-see bridal manicures are far from boring. Even if a wedding isn’t in your near future, you’re sure to fall head over heels for these simply chic looks.
Sweet
soft peach bridal manicure
A soft peach color, like RGB Nail Color in Punch, is a refreshing departure from your standard pinks and nudes. We also happen to adore the combination of peach and gold together. For a fancy French mani, grab your favorite gold nail polish (we opted for essie Good as Gold) and add metallic tips. We did ours freehand, but if you’re feeling unsteady, lay down a piece of tape before the gold polish.
Chic
chic neutral bridal manicure
Of course you wouldn’t want a full-on glitter manicure to compete with the stunner you’re sporting. Instead, try coupling nude nails with a shimmery accent finger for the perfect compromise of subtle and sparkle. We used essie Sand Tropez and topped it off with two coats of essie Luxeffects Pure Pearlfection on the ring finger.
Timeless
soft pink bridal manicure
A pale pink wedding day manicure will never go out of style. The look is simple yet sophisticated—plus the color camouflages chips quite nicely in the event the day gets a little crazy. We found a soft color that’s not too sheer (OPI Nail Lacquer in Don’t Burst My Bubble) and layered three coats to achieve pink perfection.
