Fresh Wedding Nail Ideas for 2021. Weddings are a time of celebration of love, beautiful clothes, and of course, delicious cake. They can also be a time of jam-packed scheduling, planning for a million different things including guest lists, menus, venue, seating arrangements, and coordinating everyone’s clothes.
With everything that is bound to be running through your mind leading up to, and during, that big day, you want to get as many things taken care of prior to the day of the event as possible. One of those things that you can get out of the way a few days ahead of schedule is your nail color.
Whether you’re a bride, a bridesmaid, or just a guest, you need to know the best, fresh nail ideas for this year’s weddings. Here are some of this year’s ideas for wedding nails.
Classic French Tip
We know this one isn’t exactly new, but you literally cannot go wrong with this timeless nail design. It’s a classic for a reason; the fresh white tip on an otherwise clear-coated nail is elegant but understated.
The beauty of the French tip is that, since it is such a neutral style, it’s appropriate for both brides and guests alike to rock this style at the wedding.
If regular white doesn’t quite do it for you, you could take it up a notch by going with a different color for your tips. Try a nice pale pink shade or something brighter for more of a statement nail.
Silver and Gold
Weddings are a great excuse to get a little extra, so now may be the time to break out that metallic polish.
A silver or gold polish is a great way to add some shimmer and shine without being too in-your-face flashy. Plus, metallics are like fancy neutrals, so they usually won’t clash with what you happen to be wearing to the ceremony.
It’s a good idea to play into the undertones of your skin and your outfit with this trend. If you have cooler, pink undertones in your skin, try going with silver polish. For those of us with warmer, more golden undertones, gold or even a copper color nail polish will bring out those beautiful undertones.
When we say this, we’re talking about your nails. Please don’t go nude to the actual wedding ceremony.
In all seriousness, a solid neutral nude shade is perfect for wedding-day nails. It never clashes with anything, it doesn’t draw attention to you if you’re just a guest and don’t want to stand out too much, and it looks so good you can keep it on for the weeks following the event.
Get a nude shade that is close to you natural skin tone for an effortlessly classy look that works for every season, whether it’s a summer beach wedding or a winter wonderland ceremony.
White nails have always been a pretty solid, classic way to go. This one may be reserved for the bride since, you know, white and such, but you could probably get away with wearing it as a guest, too.
As a bride, having white nails to match your white dress makes for an all-over clean and coordinated look. It also is understated enough to not draw attention away from that beautiful, ever-so-important ring you’ll be rocking.
Remember Your Nails
We know, there are so many things going on that you have to get ready for on that big day, but especially if you are the bride of the wedding, it’s important to get those nails looking good. If sitting in a nail salon isn’t your thing, you could always go for some press-on nails for a damage-free look.
