With so much to prepare for your big day, a bridal manicure may be a little way down the list. And, while your dress will certainly take centre stage, all eyes (and cameras) will also fall on your newly acquired sparkle, ensuring hands will undoubtedly be in the spotlight too.
With that in mind, we’re here with our pick of favourite wedding manicure polishes, tailored to each season - classic bridal neutrals, long-loved rosy tones and a few bolder, more unexpected hues. Be sure to set time aside for pre-wedding polish practice and find the one shade that best suits your skin tone, ensemble and even perhaps your colour scheme.
Spring / summer
The delicate pastel blush has long been a bridal nail staple. Should this hue hit all the right notes for you, then look no further than our award-winning feather-light Candy Floss or creamy powder pink, Rose Blossom.
Moving on from pink, a clean, classic nude is supremely chic yet understated, letting your dress and accessories do all the talking. From semi-sheer blush-beige hues like Au Naturel to creamy beiges like Simplicity, we have a whole nude polish palette to pick from… explore the range or find the right match for your skin tone in our blog ‘Your go-to nude, revealed’.
Desire something different to nudes or pinks? Our blue-lilac polish provides picture-perfect pops of seasonal colour, including our creamy, chic and cheerful Bluebell. What’s more, it could double as your ‘something blue’.
Looking towards the bolder end of our polish palette, our founder, Sonia, has always said there’s a red for every occasion... and we couldn’t agree more! Our warm, vibrant red-orange, Cherry Chérie is eye-catching in all the right ways.
Autumn / winter
The switch in seasons doesn't have to mean a step away from blush hues. Kindness delivers a deeper, vintage-esque pop of mid-pink colour with a soft, semi-sheer finish. For those looking to seriously dial up the dazzle this season, nothing quite beats the spectacular sparkle of Pink Sand - try it either as a statement nail or a full manicure.
Onto neutrals… and the quiet calm, minimal and modern vibe of our grey-nude, Mindful Grey, makes a stunning winter wedding shade choice. For something a little warmer, our creamy caramel, Honesty, adds rich and distinctive colour without being too strong.
Of course, bold colours also come into their own this season. Our midnight blue, Moonlight, or modern mulberry, Grateful, are impeccable picks - play with dipped tips, a full nail look or pair with a metallic polish for a truly striking autumn-winter bridal look.
Not forgetting the French Manicure
No matter the season, nothing says quintessential bridal nails quite like a French manicure - achieve this look with our Classic Chic collection, featuring semi-sheer light pink, Elegance, pure white, Flocon, and our 2-in-1 base and top coat, Bare Essentials.
No-one needs a scuffed or chipped nail on their special day. In the weeks leading up to your ceremony, prime and perfect nails and cuticles with our Apothecary treatments range. And, when the big day arrives, remember to layer base and top coats above and below your chosen polish, plus leave plenty of time for your manicure to dry.
