Wedding Nail Art

Submitted by CLX-view on January 18, 2016

A wedding is the perfect excuse for a bride and her bridesmaids to indulge in some striking nail art designs.

Every bride wants to look perfect on her wedding day, from her fabulous frock to her hair and makeup. Finger (and toe) nails are also an important part of the perfect look, and indulging in a manicure is a wonderfully indulgent activity that will help get the bride and her bridesmaids in the mood for a celebration.

Lucky ladies getting married in Thailand will discover that destinations like Phuket and Koh Samui offer a wealth of nail art boutiques and professionals, where everything from elegant French manicures to striking shellac treatments is available.

Below are a few ideas on how to make your wedding day nails look extra special.

All that Glitters

If you’re unsure about how bold you would like to go with your nail art designs, a touch of glitter may be all that’s needed to give your fingernails that extra little bit of pizzazz. After all, on your wedding day there will probably be plenty of people that want to take a peep at your ring, so it’s important to ensure your nails are in tip top condition and looking glamourous. Glittery tips will also stand out on photographs, and could even give your wedding photos that extra little bit of sparkle.

Something Blue

If you haven’t figured out what your ‘something blue’ is going to be on the big day yet, fear not – it can always be your nails. Rather than opting for a bright or garish shade of blue, a pretty pastel baby blue will work well with many different kinds of nail art embellishments, and will probably look a lot more timeless for the photos. One popular new idea is highlighting your ring finger in a different pattern to stand out from your baby blue finger tips.

Magical Moment

Brides that want to make their nails look extra romantic on their wedding day can let the nail of their ring finger do the talking by having an elegant ‘I do’ message adorned across it. Before getting such an intricate design pencilled out on your nail, it’s worth having a few practice sessions on paper with your manicurist to ensure you can get the font looking absolutely perfect. When it comes to the moment your husband slips the wedding band on your finger, your nails will give him something extra to smile about.

Perfect in Pearls

For traditional brides, a minimal approach to nail art may be preferable to sprinkles of glitter or intricate patterns. Pearls are the ultimate flourish for classy brides in search of an elegant touch, and the best thing is that there’s no need to go overboard with multiple embellishments to make these wonderful nail jewels stand out. Many brides love the idea of jazzing up a chic French manicure with a simple pearl-like gem to make their nails look extra elegant.

Queen of Hearts

If you’re a fan of elaborate nail art designs, then it makes sense to go all out by incorporating some bold shapes and colours into your wedding day manicure. Nothing could be more romantic than miniature hearts, whether they are bright, bold and red or small, cute and angelic. Once again, it makes sense to go over the specific design you want with the nail artist before having the manicure itself. If your manicurist has a portfolio of designs for you to look through in advance, then all the better.
