Are you worried about the appearance of your nails for your wedding day? Do you feel conscious of giving your hand to your partner for the ring exchange?
Whether you want a simple style or outrageous appearance for your special day, the ideas below will give you some food for thought.
If you are looking to completely tone down your image or you are a nail bitter why not invest in a good manicure and pedicure. Color is not essential; a clear coat of Top Shine will give a well-polished, but understated look for your wedding image. This is particularly relevant if your religious beliefs do not condone painted nails.
A timeless classic that will ensure the attention is no diverted away from your gown. The French manicure can always be dressed up slightly. Consider asking your manicurist to place a few rhinestones along the base of the white line on your ring finger. You don't have to stop there of course; you could include rhinestones on all your nails for a snazzier look.
Don't forget your pedicure! Is your ceremony going to be held on the beach or in the summer? If you have open-toed shoes you will want your toe nails to look as stunning as your finger nails. The French manicure works on toes as well and again you could include the rhinestones for a sparkly effect.
If you are going to go for nail extensions and you are not used to wearing them, then it is advisable to have a trial run some weeks before your wedding. You need to get used to having them on. Acrylic wraps are the most durable of the fake nail wrap selection, and they will also work well on toe nails.
If you want your hands and feet to stand out from the crowd then why not try nail art? Again, this is probably something that you would want to plan prior to the wedding week. Don't forget to extend the designs to your toe nails to complete the look.
Perhaps you are going for a specific theme for your special day? Medieval, Arabian, Cowboy, Football, Fantasy, Mermaid, Asian, Sci-Fi or Goth – the choice is limitless and it only ends where your imagination does. Remember nail designs don't have to stop with the bride.
Whatever nail look you choose, keep in mind the following tips:
