If you normally wear nail art, there’s a good chance you’re already planning your wedding-day nails. If that’s the case, you’re likely browsing through what feels like endless Pinterest boards titled “wedding nails,” hoping that inspiration will find you. If you’re worried about your version of “classy wedding nails” not being Instagram worthy but also avoiding manicure ideas you love for fear that they’re “too trendy,” this is your sign to stop. Your big day is the time for letting your personality shine, expressing yourself, and feeling like the most beautiful version of yourself — wedding nail designs and all.
If nail art makes you happy and fits your personal beauty vibe, go for it. Wedding nails for brides range from sparkly and high shine to trendier manicures with subtle geometric details (like the gorgeous “ice-cube” nail phenomena) — and the list doesn’t stop there.
To provide you with some inspiration, we rounded up an array of wedding nail looks from Instagram to get your creative juices flowing. No matter what type of celebration you’re having — big or small, traditional or modern — you’ll find the perfect wedding-nail design ideas ahead. (And if you can get your bridal party to wear it, even better.)
