Wedding Nail Art Doesn’t Have To Play It Safe
It doesn’t matter whether you’re married, engaged, or still browsing Bumble: If you’ve so much as seen an episode of Say Yes to the Dress, you already know that being a bride requires a laundry list of beauty must-haves for the big day, like long-wear foundation, kiss-proof lipstick, and a hairstyle that
won’t fall loose before you say “I do.” Nails are one small detail that tends to become an afterthought — but we’re out to change that.
And by that, we mean it’s time to ditch the Essie Ballet Slippers and other play-it-safe nudes as your polish of choice. If it’s safe enough for Queen Elizabeth, it’s probably too safe for your wedding. We’ve got something else in mind entirely: Think negative space decals, subtle hints of color (that match your bouquet!), and designs so trendy someone is bound to post it on Pinterest. Ahead, the coolest, least-lame wedding nail art for your consideration.
Not everyone can have Emi Kudo, nail artist to Emma Stone and Yara Shahidi, on deck for their wedding, but what you can have is a teeny decal with your fiancé’s initials. (Of course, if logo nail art is your thing, you can always keep the Louis shout-out, too.)
Admit it: Modern French manicures are the best kind of French manicures. These crisp tips and stark squiggles are the perfect way to stand out while staying classic…ish.
