It's wedding season! 💍
Whether you're the star of the show or the best bridesmaid, leave nothing to chance on your big day - especially not your manicure. Whatever your chosen - or required - dress code, read on for big-day inspiration to finish a formal look with a flourish or add a pop of colour to a more understated outfit.
With the dress, ceremony, guests and speeches usually planned months in advance, it's all about the final details...
Like your outfit, makeup and hairstyle, your manicure needs to be immaculate.
Are you the blushing bride?
Above all else, remember that the perfect, long-lasting manicure needs healthy, well-prepped nails. So before you even think about what colour to put on your nails, make sure you pamper yourself ahead of time so you look perfect on your wedding day.

Your big day is all about elegance and harmony. Subtlety is key, so as not to steal the spotlight from your ring or your outfit. But subtle does not mean dull!!
Opt for nude shades that flatter your skin tone or play around with special-effect powders (Glazed, Mirror) or glitter to enhance the radiance of your manicure. Above all else, follow your feelings, so your nails reflect who you are and look perfect on your big day.
Are you more of a fabulous French, noteworthy nude, glazed donut or chrome nail kinda gal? It's up to you...

Perfect Nudes and Shades of Pink
One thing is certain: at Manucurist you'll find the perfect nude or shade of pink to show off your nails at their best. Diamant - Shell Beige - Dune - Beige - Hortencia - Gloss - Milky White… You can also choose to add an extra touch of shine with a glazed powder. It's a little detail that makes a big difference, applied with a dotting tool to create subtle tone-on-tone nail art or to accentuate the contrast with your natural nails.
Used sparingly, glitter can make all the difference to your wedding-day look. Apply with a brush to a glazed-effect nude manicure or to a cream or blossom shade that works with your skin tone and your outfit.
Are you a bridesmaid?
If you're a guest, you'll certainly have more choice and it will be all about matching your manicure to your outfit or the theme of the event!
