Every girl knows the wedding is all about the dress. So it is understandable that some forget about the other small details – like your nails! So to keep them at the forefront of your mind we have created a list of our favorite wedding nail polish designs.
What characteristics should wedding nail polish designs have?
The answer to this question depends on the style and type of bride you want to achieve.
Traditional brides should stick to monotone and pastel colors that are not too in your face. This would include colors like nude or skin tone color, silver and gold. For some real style you could even go for a pastel color that matches the brides maid dresses. However if you are going down the traditional route, you don’t always have to be boring. Try incorporating some rhinestones or glitter to add a flash of brilliance to your nails. Not only will they have sparkle to match your beautiful engagement ring., you can also work it into matching some diamontes or Swarovski diamonds on your dress.
For modern brides the sky really is your limit. Try some bold colors like a bright red, or stunning hot pink for a flash of something different. To be honest, there are no strict rules when it comes to newer modern designs. The more astute brides will think about matching the color with other elements of your wedding. Such as the color of flowers in your bouquet or the groom’s tie color.

Lace Work Designs
We absolutely adore these lace work wedding nail polish designs. Nothing says weddings more than the lace work on a dress. And these wedding nail polish designs scream weddings.

French Manicures – the classic look
You can’t go wrong with a French manicure on your special day. There is a reason why they call it a classic look. Clean, polished and elegant nail polish designs is what you will get with any type of French manicure.
For something classic, but different, try adding some rhinestones into the design. For example, if you look at the image of the French manicure above, they have designed the engagement ring finger to have a couple of rhinestones to complement the diamond. It isn’t too in your face, but still adds something different to the norm.
You may be looking for something to fulfill that ‘something blue’ for your wedding. Your wedding nail polish design is the perfect opportunity to work that something blue into your outfit. This is especially so if you are lucky enough to have received a Tiffany and Co engagement ring. Use their signature Tiffany Blue as the nail polish color of choice and tie all your wedding styling together.
If you are the type of bride that wants to have fun, your wedding nail polish design is a great way to express your creativity. Have some fun and whimsy with the design.
