Luxurious linen tweed nails: These gorgeous neutral nails are perfect for an eye-catching and urban approach to the classic wedding manicure. To recreate the look, apply a base coat of Essie’s Spin the Bottle shade for a layer of semi-sheer nude. Next, bring a second colour to your manicure with a coat of platinum white Pearly White polish (also by Essie). To bring an edgy tweed-patterned finish to your nails, use a striping brush and an application of Essie’s snow white Blanc and sheer nude Allure polish shades.

PALE PINK NAILS

Pale pink tips: If you prefer understated pastel hues, complete your wedding day nails with a refreshing and spring-ready light pink manicure. For a subtle hint of colour, try polishing your short and oval-shaped nails with Sally Hansen’s Arm Candy shade.

LACE MANICURE

Playful wedding ring inspired nails: For a funky take on the season’s bridal nail looks, try taking your cues from this creative manicure idea which features stamped nail art. To achieve the look, start off by using a lace inspired stamping plate and white stamping nail polish. Next, seal the deal with a clear top coat, and apply a solid application of white polish on one fingernail as a statement look. To get a wedding ring inspired touch on this nail, add a glimmering silver nail gem and prepare to sparkle.
