Choosing the right nail polish for your Big Day isn’t easy with all the stunning shades out there, so today we’ve put together our top 10 polish picks for the classic bride. Elegant nudes and soft blush pinks are the most popular manicures for a pretty yet sophisticated look and work great all year round. Your nails should feel extra special for your Big Day – think of how many times they’ll be on show with your brand new sparkler! – so opt for something that makes you feel extra fun and flirty! There are some great tongue-in-cheek names for wedding-ready polishes that are sure to make you smile on the day, from Essie’s Tying the Knotie and Hubby for Dessert to Monogamous by Illamasqua and Mimosas for Mr & Mrs by OPI. Remember that you’ll have to put a little bit of effort into your talons if you plan to go au natural however, and for the couple of months leading up to the Big Day you should keep them free from fake nails, use a strengthener and apply a hand nail cream as often as you need (extra over the winter months of course!). Of course if you know nothing about nails and prefer to leave it to the professionals, check out Dublin based Sabrina of Sabrina Nails who specialises in nail art and acrylic and gel nails who is sure to get your talons more than ready for their close up!
