Three Bridal Manicures That Go Beyond the Basic
Mom said it’s not nice to point. But that adage went out the window ever since he put a ring on your finger. Now you find yourself pointing at anything and everything just to show off that gorgeous rock.
And you’re about to add a wedding band to finish off the look, so your nails need to be ready for the spotlight. Marie Nguyen, G2O Spa + Salon’s nail department supervisor, introduces us to three types of polished brides and their go-to manicure style.
The Sultry Bride
She says: “Loud and proud.”
Her bridal style: Her dress is curvaceous and she likes solid colors with a pop of glitz.
Her perfect polish: Shown above on the ring finger, two coats of Essie’s Pound Cake with a single rhinestone placed at the corner of her ring finger, pulling the look together with a peek of fun.
The Glitz-and-Glam Bride
She says: “The more the merrier.”
Her bridal style: Her dress is intricate with chiffon, lace, and sequins. Her nails reflect that style with fun and fabulous detailed designs. A great fit would be a solid neutral color drizzled in rhinestones, sparkles, or glitter.
Her perfect polish: Shown above on the middle finger, two coats of Essie’s Waltz with an ombre done with silver/gold glitter and a few randomly placed rhinestones.
The Chic and Classic Bride
She says: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Her bridal style: Her dress is fitted with minimal cutouts and fluff. Her nails are long and shaped to flow with her natural nail beds.
Her perfect polish: Shown above on the index finger, one coat of Essie’s Limo-Scene with one coat of Essie’s Mademoiselle over a classic stark white French manicure line. The combination of these two colors over a French will ensure balance with any given skin tone.
