If you normally wear nail art, there’s a good chance you’re already planning for your own wedding day nails. If that’s the case, you’re likely browsing through what feels like endless Pinterest boards titled “wedding nails,” hoping inspiration will find you, and you can finally settle on the nail designs for your big day. If you’re worried about your version of “classy wedding nails” not being Instagram worthy while also avoiding manicure ideas that you love out of fear they’re “too trendy,” this is your sign to stop. Your big day is the time to let your personality shine, express yourself, and feel like the most beautiful version of yourself — wedding nail designs and all.
If nail art makes you happy and fits your personal beauty vibe, we empower you to go for it. Wedding nails for brides range from sparkly, high shine finished to more trendy manicures that feature 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.)
