So much time and effort goes into planning every little detail of your wedding — from the venue to the floral arrangements, and even your manicure. To help you mark one more item off your checklist, we rounded up five bridal nail ideas, ranging from minimalist looks to the most ‘gram-ready. Read on to find your perfect mani for when it’s time to walk down the aisle.

An Updated Classic

It’s impossible to go wrong with a French manicure, and it’s easy to upgrade the look in a simple way. By adding just a touch of sparkle and an ultra-thin white line, your mani will be transformed from average to elegant and memorable.

Delicate Glitter

For fingers that sparkle like fairy dust, outline nails with nail glue and gently dip into nail pearl dust, like BORN PRETTY Chrome Nail Powder. If you prefer to keep the color solely on your nails, use one coat of Essie Twinkle in Time.

A Minimalistic Look

The naked manicure trend is perfect for your wedding day and is simple enough to DIY. Select a sheer pink polish (we love Essie Ballet Slippers Remixed) and apply a thin coat so that your natural nail color comes through.

Floral Nail Art

If you’re interested in something a little more intricate, look no further than these stunning floral nails. Though there are slight pops of green and pink, this design is still subtle enough to go with just about any bridal gown.

Blinged Out

Your mani is the perfect place to add a little extra bling on your wedding day. Add gems to all your nails or to one finger like this look for a manicure that’s totally Instagram worthy.
