Hello, fellow brides! It’s Kara from Politics of Pretty and while my wedding is just about six months away, I’m beginning to focus on the details. When it comes to bridal look, you may have the dress, the shoes and accessories…but have you thought about your nails? A polished manicure on your wedding day is just as important as the hair and makeup. From glamorous glitter to new twists on romantic pinks, I’ve rounded up five nail polish hues every bride will love.
First and foremost, sheer pink nails are timeless and never go out of style. I recommend two or three coats of L’Oreal Color Riche Nail in How Romantic. I love how pure and low-key this shade is. Deborah Lippmann in Chantilly Lace has a sheer-iridescent pink shimmer if you’re looking for a modern twist on a classic shade. If you’re struggling to come up with “something blue” to wear, you may want to consider this Deborah Lippmann in Misty Morning. It’s the perfect sheer blue-grey crème. It’s soft enough to look subtle with your ensemble yet eye-catching to make a statement.
Because I’m opting for a simple satin gown on my wedding day, I’ve been thinking about a glamorous gold polish. Essie in Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is an opaque glitter molten gold that will stand out without overdoing it. If you’re thinking of dressing in head-to-toe white, then milky white nails are equal parts modern and chic. Essie in Marshmallow has been a long-time fan favorite and it isn’t too white or too opaque. Once you’ve decided on your bridal polish, make sure you get a professional manicure and pedicure one day before the wedding so you can show off your rings!
