Nail expert Alli from The Daily Varnish shares her top two looks for bridal nails!
“Nail art can be scary but these metallic polka dots over a subtle base color give the nails a soft yet interesting look. Polishes used: Essie No Place Like Chrome and Essie Maximillian Strasse Her.”
“This is a trendier choice though still subtle. Blue, clear and silver microbeads sprinkled over a white base adds just a touch of something blue to your overall look. Polishes used: Ulta Snow White, Reflections Microbeads (can be found at craft stores).”
A bright red lip looks incredible with a vintage style wedding dress. Don’t be afraid to add color to your lips for your wedding day, just make sure you trial it beforehand so you know you feel confident with it on!
