Wedding Nails – 250+ Image Ideas




20+ bridal nail art ideas for a wedding mani that’s unique to you

Once you’ve ticked off the wedding dress and venue, narrowed down the guest list and picked your perfect updo, the only thing left to do is find your fiancé… and the most fabulous wedding mani.

If you’re subtle, you’ll pick a pretty colour from our bridal nail colours guide, but if you want every inch of you to be extra (it is YOUR day after all), consider going for something a little more special…

Negative-space sensation. Gold-traced tips and outlines around an otherwise clear-based nail is the modern style for minimalistic brides who still want to make their mani special.
