As a lot of you already know, I'm getting married in November. Now, I'm a pretty organized and detail-oriented kind of person, so the whole business of planning the wedding has actually been pretty easy going for me. However, one area where I'm struggling is how I'm going to do my nails for the big day! So I figured, why not use this as an opportunity to get a little interactive with you all and have you help me choose my wedding mani!
How it'll work is that over the next 5-6 weeks, I'll post all of the possible designs I've come up with. At the end of that period I'll post them all at once and ask you guys to vote on which is your favourite. Once your favourite is chosen, I'll take that into serious consideration when finally choosing my wedding mani. So, here's choice number one!
The first design is this classic french with a glitter accent nail. While my wedding is peacock themed and I'm using a lot of deep teals, blues and purples in the colour scheme, I've decided that I want to keep my overall look somewhat traditional and classic. So most of the designs you'll be seeing will follow that style.
I started out with a base of OPI Step Right Up!, which I think is pretty much the perfect base for french manicures. I then freehanded on some french tips using OPI Alpine Snow. If I were to go with this mani for the wedding, I would probably use some french tip guides or tape to make sure the lines were completely perfect and consistent.
For the accent nail, I simply sprinkled some loose glitter over top of Step Right Up! while it was wet. I also think that if this was to be my wedding mani, I might try it out using the white polish as the base for the glitter and see how that would look. I think perhaps that might tie in with the french tips just a little bit better.
I actually quite like this look! I like that it's classic but there's still a pop of fun with the glittered nail.
Thanks for looking! More wedding manis to come!
