There was a time when it seemed like the only acceptable wedding manicures were the French tip, a pretty soft pink or barely-there beige. While a natural look is still standard fare, there are plenty of ways to switch things up and stand out on your big day with nail art. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite wedding-ready nail art looks of the moment, for the classic, minimalist bride, the bride who wants to make a bold statement and everyone in between. 

Gold Accents

Take an elevated approach to wedding nail art with this simple look from nail artist Betina Goldstein. She pairs a naked nail with gold studs to create a leaf-like effect, and the results are stunning.

The Updated French

The French manicure isn’t over, it’s just gotten more interesting. For a modern take, go for a wavy white tip, like @raelondonnails created here. 

True Love 

On your wedding day, you’re already wearing your heart on your sleeve, why not wear it on your nails, too? This nude, heart-dotted look by @charlotteemilybeauty_ is a simple and chic way to do it.

Non-Boring Neutrals 

For a trend-driven look that you won’t regret wearing ten years from now, we suggest an abstract swirl design on top of a neutral base. The gold accents help elevate the mani for the big occasion. 

Something Blue

Still in need of your something blue? Opt for this baby blue French manicure with half-moon detailing. 

A Nail Art Bouquet 

A dainty flower design is perfect for spring and summer weddings. The soft yellow center gives the look a subtle pop of color. 

The Power of Love

Rose quartz is known as a symbol of love. But you don’t have to subscribe to the powers of crystals to swoon over this quartz-inspired mani.
