21 Beautiful Bridal Nail Ideas

Hair, Make Up & Beauty

Lots of fun and inspiring nail designs pop up in our Pinterest feed daily that make us want to reach for the polish, some of which would be just gorgeous for the Big Day (or to show off your new sparkler if you’re just engaged!) Some of course may be a little too colourful or bold for your liking but can easily be done in nude, pink or peachy tones if it’s a more classic nail style you’re after.

If you’re drawn to pretty pastel shades, there are some gorgeous soft colours you can paint your nails with from mint and blues (a fun way to work in your something blue) to pretty pinks and peaches (or a punchier coral if you’re having a bright summer wedding) or perhaps a blend of two shades. If you love your sparkle there are so many beautiful ways to add a hint of glitz to your nails from stripes and chevrons to glitzy embellishments at the cuticle or the tips of your nail. Flowers come in to their own come spring and summer and if you’re after some sweet artwork for your nails, there are lots of lovely prints to inspire – of course, you don’t have to cover all of your nails in flowers, a big trend for the wedding day is highlighting just the ring finger to make it stand out. We’ve also rounded up some French manicures with a twist for those that love a classic nail but want something a little extra for the day that’s in it. Get inspired with these 21 pretty styles!
