One of the little details that can make a big difference on your wedding day is your nails. Yes, brides have plenty of other hefty tasks to complete to ensure their day goes amazing (to assist 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 right now, we’re talking manicures. The big day calls for beautiful nail designs in elegant shapes to amplify the occasion for the bride-to-be.
Those who bear witness to these romantic affairs will appreciate every little lovely detail of the day, dashing manicure included. From pre-ceremony photos to the moment at the altar to the classic bouquet toss, there will be plenty of moments for the nails to shine.
Yes, wedding traditions have made us partial to classic styles such as simple nudes, French manicures, and soft crème colors, but some brides believe in going the non-traditional route. Manicurists have since taken this into consideration and have gone above and beyond with creative twists on both fake and natural nails.
To save you a bit of scrolling through #weddingnails, we asked a few of our favorite artists to share their favorite wedding day appliqués, how to make pretty abstract designs, and how they place crystals in solid lines so effortlessly. Here are 21 options to get you inspired.
