Getting ready for the big day? Read on !
Booked venue, check! , found the perfect dress, check! But did you have anyone take care of the “bridal nails”?
We spoke about maintaining nails before, but it is not as serious as taking care of bridal nails. We have an awesome and super important set of tips before you go head and colour your special bridal nails.
We know bridal nails are as important as the dress since a bad pair of nails can really ruin your special wedding captures and even dull your spotlight as a bride because you know he’s going to put that ring on your hand!
What colour should a bride wear?
We think Essie’s Gel Couture Bridal Colleciton is an amazingly edited collection of bridal colours and it also give perfect options for bridesmaids to complement the bride. Essie’s Ballet Slippers is also a good place to start looking for the neutral, pinky polish shades which can be recreated with gel colours.
Play around a little bit with shades like CND Shellac’s Beau, Negligee or Romantique or look at Naked Naivete and Nude Knickers as you will. They give off an amazing subtle pink.
Should you get gel nails?
Yes you should! Because they don’t end up getting smudged or chipped which is a serious no-no for a bride. Since every minute counts in the days leading up to your wedding day so any time-saving treatments are valuable.
Is Nail art a faux pas?
Think of your nails the same way you think of the bridal dress. Will you still like them when you look back at the pictures 20 years in time? Minimal nail art design would not look gaudy trust us!
