Wedding Nails Idea: Silver Lace

I’m doing a series at the moment on Bridal Nails (you can see the first post here) as I’m trying to find to find something to wear for my wedding day in a couple of months time.

I’m looking for something classy, but still fun and a bit different. Everyone knows I like being a bit different :)

Wedding Nails Idea: Silver Lace

For this design I used two coats of Models Own Buff Pink, and then after that had dried, I used Barry M Foil Effects Silver and one of the Cheeky Mega Stamping Plates (annoyingly unlabelled) to stamp over this cute little lace designs.

I actually really like this design a lot – so elegant and pretty – but I think it still lacks some sparkle. I think I need to combine it with some glitter or something.

What do you think of this design?

Wedding Nails Idea: Soft Sparkle

As you may or may not know, my fiancé Jack and I will be getting married in two months time. We’ve got nearly everything sorted and arranged now,  which is a big weight off my mind, and although I have my dress bought I still haven’t planned what I will wear on my nails!

I’ve decided to try out a few different ideas for my nails and show them on here over the next few weeks.

Today’s manicure is a soft glittery bridal look. I can’t get married without a bit of sparkle!

Wedding Nails Idea: Soft Sparkle

I started by painting my nails with one coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle, a polish with a clear base packed with micro fine silver glitter and bigger hexagonal glitter. I then painted on one thin coat of Rimmel London Salon Pro New Romantic. I tried this out with multiple coats but it started looking far too pink and didn’t suit my skin tone. Finally I painted one more coat of the glitter before adding a topcoat.

I quite like this look I think. I think. I just wonder if it might look a little boring for me. I know it’s my wedding nails, but it’s still got to look a bit fun right?!
