Few Ideas for Your Beach Wedding Nails

The bride’s wedding is a very special day. This is the one time in her life where she will be able to feel like the queen that she is! This is bigger than childhood fairy tales. This is her golden opportunity to live out the fantasy she’s always dreamed of. Shouldn’t everything be absolutely perfect? Of course it should be! Right up to the tiniest of details! Therefore, along with choosing her perfect dress, veil, hairstyle, accessories and shoes, it’s only right that she remembers to also choose the perfect look for your nails! Want to know another great fact? Her bridesmaids are just as fabulous! A beautiful bride knows that her bridesmaids must also have their nails on point as well. After all, the bridesmaids are her closest girlfriends whom she cherishes dearly.

Speaking of fabulous wedding manicures, I strongly suggest choosing to get a simple French manicure. Another option is to opt for manicures done in soft neutral colors. For a beach wedding, the best way to go is with a breezy feminine look because of the natural atmosphere in which you’ll be in. You don’t have to worry about things being too flashy, as the environment will be more relaxed and easy-going. No need to make it hard on yourself! However, if this sounds too hum-drum and you rather go against the grain, you also have the freedom of adding some glitter accents and fun details like a tiny starfish or seashells to perfectly match the main theme of your beach wedding. Show off your fabulous mermaid alter ego, why don’t you!

Since you’re more than likely taking a quick peak at your fingers and toes to see how much needs to be done, check out these fabulous beach wedding nail ideas for some inspiration and motivation to get you started!

You Deserve a Gorgeous Manicure!

That lovely shiny rock that the bride’s husband-to-be surprised her with could look even better on her hand if her nails are flawlessly done. Since the photographers will be zooming in on her hands and all the guests will be gawking at her beautiful ring and bouquet, her hands will be pretty important on your big day. If you’re the bridesmaid, the same applies! Your nails should complement your dress and bouquet as well. So make sure you get them done as soon before the wedding as possible for a fresh (but dry) look.

French manicures are usually done with more of a square nail style but it’s time to try something new! Spicing up a traditional French manicure with a more rounded elegant style complete with a simple charm will really give a refreshing look to your wedding wardrobe.

Want to take it up a notch? Rocking an oval shape to complement soft neutral colors really makes a statement with subtle gold designs.

Would you love to have the grace of easy-breezy beach sands on your hands? Going for a more opaque skin tone color with a hint of jewels will really dazzle up your look.

This one is for the bold divas at heart! Following the ocean currents and choosing an aquamarine color with seashell stenciling and even more gorgeous rhinestones and charms will give you all the bling you need!

Amaze them with a manicure reminiscent of golden sands. Gaining inspiration from the coral reefs with a soft neutral rendition in their honor will really give a nice pop.

Can’t get enough of glitter? On this special day, you can have all that you want! This nail look is sure to give a heavenly glow.
