In honor of #MakeUpMonday let's talk beauty treatments Smiley love

What kind of manicure are you going for on your wedding day? Traditional polish? Gel? Acrylic? SNS? Full color? Nude? French tips? Glitter? A party nail? An intricate design?

Will your wedding day nail look be similar to your usual nail style, or are you going for a completely new look?

    Likely shellac in a nude or lavender.

    Something crisp and spring like.

    Haha I could never do that good of an ombre myself! Luckily my nail tech is super talented!

    I got it from Ebay. It came in small sheets like the picture below. The application is very easy. After you painted your nail, before applying the top coat, cut the flowers from sticker, dip it in lukewarm water for 6 seconds and touch the sticker to the nail. Tap it dry with paper towel and you can apply top coat right away. The sticker is so thin (like gel) you won't fell it. I usually use tweezers to hold the sticker when dipping it in water.

    I think I need to go buy that first polish, but I doubt I'd get that perfect ombre effect if I tried it myself!

    What shade of purple? Bold, to match your BMs' dresses?

    So elegant! Do you usually like to keep it neutral?

    I love nail art but I’ll probably keep my nails quite simple. I can’t do anything long and fake because I won’t be able to put my contacts in/take them out without scrathing myself in the eye. (I’ve done it while lying on my bed, I can certainly manage it while putting my lenses in!)

    I'm getting my usual shellac mani, and will go for a pale pink, but with the ring finger embellished with a few small silver stones. My manicurist and I started planning as soon as I got engaged lol

    Classic french look, but with a sparkle/silver fade lightly on the tips. I want a clean/neutral look, but a bit of sparkle to match my dress/jewelry.

    I love colourful manicures, but for me, on my wedding day, I just don't want the distraction, or dark colours.

    I will be doing my own nails. I had tried many styles and colors and in the end, I like this one the most. White base with flowery water stickers.

    I'm definitely getting shellac/gel done for my big day. I'm debating between white or nude nails.

    Will definitely be getting gel or acrylic tips done. as i'm a nail biter. and then shellac to make them last.

    will probably do a French manicure of some sort with a bit of sparkle. nothing too flashy. want to be more traditional.

    I went with an ombre with a bit of glitter at the base - I didn't want anything too flashy.

    Ill be getting a classic french fade for my nails! I don't usually get anything really colourful anyway so that will be a nice classic touch! I might add a couple gems or something but no colour for me.

    I was thinking maybe something like these but with the ring finger(s) being white and silver specks of glitter Smiley laugh

    I love getting my nails done! For my big day, ill be getting the dipped powder nails in a french gradient manicure.
    The dip powder lasts a month on my nails, no chips. It could probably last longer if I left it on longer though. It will be perfect for the wedding and the honeymoon without having to worry about chips or peeling.
