White Nails with Rose Gold Stripe

From make-up to hair, these are just a few of the details that go into making sure you feel beautiful on your special day. A stunning manicure to accentuate your beauty is just the cherry on top! Here are a few of our Bellacures bridal favorites for looks and colors to make sure your nails look absolutely stunning when you walk down that aisle!

Blushing Bride

Soft blush pink nails

When it comes to traditional bridal nail looks, you can never go wrong with a soft blush pink nail. Soft pink will help to accentuate your white dress to make it pop, and that gorgeous new ring you’re rocking! If you’re opting for a soft pink lip, accessorizing your nails to match is an excellent choice. The great thing about a blush-pink color is that there are endless options out there, so you can definitely find the perfect pink for you, whether it’s a strong opaque color, or a beautiful sheer pink – they are all sure to help you complete the Blushing Bride look! 

A few Bellacures favorites are: OPI Baby, Take a Vow, OPI Suzi Calls the Paparazzi, Essie Gel Couture Sheer Fantasy, Essie gel Couture Blush-Worthy, Dazzle Dry Pinkies Up and Dazzle Dry Mind Your Mani


Neutral color nails

Neutral colors are a great way to make any outfit pop – and that doesn’t stop with wedding gowns, especially if you are taking the non-traditional route and opted for a colored gown, such as red or blue. Neutrals are also a great way to match manis with your bridesmaids, regardless of their dress colors!

You can also dress up your neutral bridal nail with a single coat of your choice of glitter polish or applying some rhinestones to add a bit of extra sparkle to your special day. 

Tried and Trusted Nudes we suggest are: OPI Samoan Sand, OPI Put It In Neutral, Dazzle Dry Not Quite Nude, Essie Gel Couture Buttoned & Buffed, or Essie Gel Couture High Sewciety. We suggest testing a few of these nude colors to make sure it is the perfect fit for you and your skin tone!

Classic White

Classic white nails

Everything will pop when you embrace the white on white on white! Today is the day when white is your color for everything, so why not embrace it?! White goes with everything, so there’s no need to stress!

Here are some of our faves: Essie Gel Couture Lace to the Altar, Essie Gel Couture First Fitting, Dazzle Dry Fine China, Dazzle Dry Arctic Sunset, OPI Funny Bunny or OPI Kyoto Pearl

French Kiss

French manicured nails

A French Manicure never goes out of style. It is clean and classic, and perfect for any bride. It also gives you the option to play with some of the other bridal colors if you can’t make up your mind! Just pick your perfect white, and mix with either a blush pink as your base, or a classic neutral.  You can also add a small twist on a classic look by choosing a glittery white for the tips, or opting for an ombre effect.

Something Blue

Blue nails

For Bolder Brides, your nails could be the perfect opportunity to show off your “something blue” without having to add it into your attire. 

This is really the opportunity to play with how it fits to your personality, opting for a softer blue, or going super bold. 

Bashful Blues: OPI This Color Hits all High Notes, Essie Find Me An Oasis or Dazzle Dry Lotion, Please!

Bold Blues: OPI Nessie Plays Hide and Seek, Essie You Do Blue, or Dazzle Dry Glamorous

Why you like them:

The reason we often suggest neutrals to our Bellacures brides is to make sure that the color they choose does not take away from their overall bridal look. We believe a bridal nail should  help to accentuate the Bride on her wedding day bringing together a classy, and polished appearance. 

How to achieve these looks:

To truly find the perfect bridal nail for you, we recommend trialing several different looks in the months leading up to your big day, especially if you’re looking to improve your overall nail health, regular manis are a must! If you don’t have time for multiple trial services, or break a nail before the big day,  we recommend opting for a Gel-X service versus Acrylic for a more natural look, and overall, healthier option for your nails!

We feel that your nails are incredibly personal, and what looks amazing on one person may not be the best on you. Taking time to trial your options, just like trying on multiple wedding dresses, it is definitely the best approach! We know wedding’s take a lot planning, and this shouldn’t stop when it comes to your nails. Working with a nail salon is the best option for achieving your best bridal look – if no suggested colors work for you, a skilled technician can work with you to mix the perfect color that’s right for you so that you’re picture perfect ready for the big day!
