Getting ready for your wedding often involves getting your hair and makeup just right. Another component of getting ready is a manicure. Instead of going to a spa or a salon, there are some wedding manicure ideas that you can do right at home. This can save you money and time that can be spent on other accessories and items for your wedding.
A little shine
Make sure you stand out from the wedding party by painting your nails using metallic polish. This kind of polish is an idea to consider because it can blend well with your rings and some of the metallic accessories that you choose to wear. Consider choosing a polish that is the same color as your rings so that everything is in the same color family.
There’s nothing wrong with a manicure that’s white and basic. This is often a classy look that is delicate and offers an air of innocence. White is also a traditional color, so if you’re trying to stick with the traditional theme of a white dress and other details, then this might be a color to consider for your nails.
There are a few embellishments that you can add to your nails when giving yourself a manicure. Think about the details on your dress, such as crystals or diamonds that accent the sleeves or the trim of your dress. You can get colored or clear jewels to add to your nails that can match your dress, shoes, and other details. When you add embellishments, you’re in control of how much bling you want to use. Your nails could be fun and sparkly or plain and simple with only a few additions on one or two nails.
An idea to consider is to paint the lower half of your nails clear and the upper half pink. Small gold embellishments can be placed at the dividing line. You don’t have to use the gold on every nail as only a little bit of gold can go a long way in adding a lot of shine to your hands. A chevron design with clear, pink, and gold is an option to consider as well.
You can do a classic French tip on your nails and then take it up a notch. Design a silver or gold bow on the end of one nail. This should be the same color as your rings so that everything matches. You can also add a little glitter to the tips of your nails so that they shine.
Another simple idea that is a bit more traditional is a lace design. This can be done in any way that you want on your nails. You could create a lace look on one half of each nail or in a diagonal design so that only a portion of each nail is covered. The lace design can be done in white or in a fun color if you don’t want to go with traditional shades.
Use two or three colors to create an ombre look on your nails. White and pink would be good choices if you want to stick with a traditional design. These colors can also give a romantic look to your nails. The ombre design could also be in the colors of your wedding so that your nails match the dresses that your bridesmaids will wear and the vests that the men will wear.
Instead of white or plain tips, consider using a color that will match what’s used in your wedding. The rest of the nail can be white or another color that matches.
