Happy National Nail Polish Day! In the final days leading up to your wedding, you've likely checked off most of the boxes on your to-do list. You have your dress, picked your accessories, found a hairstyle and makeup look you love, and know exactly which perfume you'll be wearing as you walk down the aisle. But what about your wedding-day manicure? For brides who always have their nails painted, this detail has likely been on the forefront of your mind, but those who typically keep a natural nail may not have considered this element of the overall ensemble.
Regardless of your typical beauty habits, we recommend that those who don't want to wear a shimmering metallic or bold shade on their nails during their nuptials don a nude polish. The complementing shade will look lovely in close-up photos as you're getting ready, holding your bouquet, and exchanging rings during the ceremony. Since every woman has a different skin tone, there are many shades of nude nail lacquers – the key is to find the one that complements your unique complexion. Fair brides will want to lean more towards sheer nudes with a touch of pink, while medium-toned skin works best with nudes featuring a bit of purple or mauve. Women with olive skin tones look great in beige hues, while brides with deeper skin tones should also choose polish in deeper shades.
The most important thing to consider when selecting the right nude nail lacquer for your wedding day is to find a color that you feel comfortable in, one that doesn't detract from your dress or bouquet, and most of all, makes you feel like the beautiful bride you are. Take a look at 15 nude nail polishes below – all ranging from light cream to nude pink. Shop your favorites by clicking on each image!
