Ah, weddings – they’re all about decisions. And if you thought deciding on your own hair and makeup for the big day was hard enough, don’t forget you’ve got a whole other gaggle of girls to think about – otherwise known as the bridesmaids. Pleasing them all can be tricky, but if you’re after something a bit more interesting than your bog-standard nude nail, jazz it up with our three nail looks and you’re sure to find a happy medium.
1- The Neon Coral
If you want to stick to neutral-toned nails, but are after more than a plain nude, you might want to try something a bit brighter. Essie’s Nail Polish in Serial Shopper, £7.99, is the perfect apricot colour; just a few coats and you’re good to go. Great for a bright pop that’s guaranteed NOT to clash with your colour scheme.
2- The Half Moon
This modern look is a fresh new take on the classic french manicure. To start with, paint the nail with a coat of NYC’s Expert Last Nail Enamel in Pinstripe White, £2.49. Once dry, paint the tips with Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Secret, £18, making sure the moons of the nail are left white. This one requires a steady hand, but the results sure are worth it.
3- The Glitter Girl
There is no such thing as a wedding too formal for glitter. For a sutble touch of the sparkly stuff, paint nails with a coat of Diego Dalla Palma’s Nail Polish in Pale Pink, £9.50, and then add a layer of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Top Coat in Boho Look, £4.99 for a pretty shimmer.
