wedding nails design – wedding trends 2021
Wedding nails, unlike hairstyles or wedding dresses, are not so changeable. Here, above all, classics and toning down reign.
Sometimes, however, the classic gets new versions. And so a few seasons ago, a novelty was the 👶 baby boomer, which has survived to this day in the styling of wedding manicure and is still eagerly chosen by brides.
Currently, a new trend in classic manicure is golden accessories and more accentuated white.
There are also brides who choose bolder colors. 😎 If you are one of them, you will surely be interested in mirror nails, negative effect, colorful mosaics and prints, which are now an absolute hit!
wedding nails design – classic
Classic is the queen of wedding manicure among brides. First of all, it is a ⛑ safe option. Classic, delicate nails will perfectly match any wedding dress and bride.
Besides, they are simple to make. Therefore, there is rather no fear that something will go wrong (unlike in the case of patterns or prints).
Classic wedding nails are rather 🙈 “invisible”. They do not attract attention, but also make the hands look neat and elegant.
# 1 Nude
Nude is a color loved not only when it comes to wedding nails. We also love it when we choose shoes or handbags.
Kate Middleton 👸 and Meghan Markle also chose him for their wedding! Nude is a simple and minimalist version of a wedding manicure.
# 2 French
French is a classic chosen by brides for years! It was created in the 1970s with ⭐️ Hollywood stars in mind.
Why? Because they were supposed to be perfect for any outfit on the red carpet.
It is no wonder then that they are so eagerly chosen as 👰 wedding nails.
# 3 Pale pink
Blush is another classic color that is perfect for a wedding manicure. You can opt for classic blush or choose a powdery shade of it.
# 4 Beige
What is the difference between beige and nude? 🤔 Basically none.
Nude is a shade of beige that imitates the color of human skin. However, the beige shades themselves are much more.
Wedding nails design – a classic in a new edition
The classic is a classic, but from time to time there are novelties that try to 🌬 refresh it and break it a bit. This is how the following suggestions for wedding nails were created.
# 5 Baby boomer
Baby boomer is, on the one hand, a modern inspiration for the classic French manicure, and on the other hand, the use of the ubiquitous ombre motif.
Women 😍 love ombre in hair coloring, so it’s finally time for nails!
# 6 Marble
Marbled wedding nails are supposed to imitate natural stone, thanks to which they look very elegant. 🤩
You can choose a lighter version – gray and black or gray and gold, or choose a stronger accent, e.g. black and white.
Remember that not all nails have to be the same!
Marbles can only be a single accent, and the remaining nails can be painted in a uniform color, e.g. powder pink.
# 7 Crystals / pearls
You can use solid-colored wedding or French nails and finish them with mini pearls, 💎 diamonds or crystals.
Patterns can vary, but remember not to overdo them. Such decorations should only be accessories!
# 8 Pearly finish
Pearl colors are coming back to favor and give a little glow to subdued colors.
If you would like to break the classics and minimalism, but only a little – pearl wedding nails are for you! 😃
# 9 Golden accents
Golden accessories in a wedding manicure are the perfect accessory for jewelry. 💍
They will also perfectly match the wedding ring, even if you have chosen silver or titanium wedding rings.
When choosing gold nails for a wedding, you can choose gold varnish or choose golden accents, e.g. in the form of pollen, gold applications or prints.
# 10 Patterns
Currently, various designs are very popular in nail styling. Be it 👩🎨 painted or in the form of prints.
You can choose individual accents (one or two nails) in the form of patterns, and leave the rest of the nails in a uniform color or choose other decorations.
Wedding nails design – for brave brides
We have classic and safe proposals behind us. So the time has come for the 😈 bolder ones that will no longer suit every bride.
On the one hand, because of the skin tone (you can read more about how to choose a color for your skin tone below ⬇️).
On the other hand, due to the different main color (which can quite clearly clash with the nails, and they will already be visible) or the style of the wedding – clear, silver nails have nothing to do with, for example, a delicate and subtle rustic wedding.
# 11 Red / Burgundy
On the one hand, ❤️ red is a kind of classic shade and fits perfectly with simple elegance. However, with a white wedding dress and a fairly large amount of white in wedding decorations, it is definitely a distinct and distinctive color.
It will definitely work as an addition to the appearance of the bride, if you have chosen red as the main color of the wedding.
In turn, wedding nails in a burgundy shade can be a beautiful complement to the 🍁 autumn celebration.
# 12 Coral
Coral is a bright and very energetic combination of 🍊 orange and red. Coral was one of the trendiest colors of 2019 and it still doesn’t get boring!
Coral wedding nails will perfectly harmonize with a colorful, spring or summer wedding.
# 13 Blue
Something blue? Wedding nails!👍
Brides love blue, which is why so many of its shades are the leitmotif of a wedding. So there was also blue nails!
As with wedding decorations, you can opt for one of the many shades of blue.
Brides choose for their wedding nails from very delicate light shades (such as Bambi Girl or dusty blue ), through blue in its pure form, 💙 to dark versions (such as cornflower or indigo).
# 14 Lilac
Lilac is a very delicate and light shade of purple, which is an excellent base for creating various patterns and decorations.
The lilac color was a hit of 2018, but it still does not go out of fashion and is eagerly used in nail styling.
# 15 Silver
There was classic gold – it’s time for silver!
Silver wedding nails are perfect for a ❄️ winter wedding or a party in the style of the Great Gatsby.
You can also easily choose them for a summer or spring party. However, it is worth choosing a wedding dress or accessories in cool shades.
# 16 Mirror nails
Mirror or metallic, highly reflecting wedding nails are an absolute hit! 🤩
You can choose mirror wedding nails in silver (sometimes also with the so-called chrome effect), golden rose or gold.
Although mirror nails can be made in virtually any color.
# 17 The negative effect
The negative effect 🎞 is nothing more than leaving some gaps, unpainted parts of the nail, which are also an opportunity to create original patterns!
It is not a simple technique, but it is effective. However, it is definitely not for lovers of classic wedding nails, even in the form of an accessory.
# 18 Flowers!
Every year floral motifs appear in fashion in various versions. It is no different in the case of nails as well!
Wedding nails also love flowers! 🌹🌻
Wedding nails – how to choose?
You already know wedding trends in nail styling, you know what the classic proposals are, how to break them or give them up completely.
But are all these proposals suitable for every bride? Definitely not.
So how to choose the right shape, color and type of wedding manicure? 🤷♀️
Let’s start with the fact that before you start painting your nails, you need to prepare them for this and choose their shape as well.
What shapes of nails do we distinguish?
When choosing the right nail shape for yourself, it is worth paying attention to three aspects:
The shape of the ring,
Type of tile,
The shape of the fingers.
What is a nipple? This is the lightest part of the nail, located right next to the cuticle. The nipple can usually be seen on the 👍 thumb.
In the case of nipple, the matter is simple.
If it is rounded – you should also choose a rounded nail shape. If it is square – this should also be the shape of the nails.
For the nail plate:
A short and wide ➡️ square shape tile with rounded edges,
Long plate ➡️ preferably rounded shape,
A long and narrow plate with a ➡️ pointed shape.
The last aspect is the 🖐 shape of the fingers.
If you have long and narrow fingers – choose a square shape of the nails. For short fingers, pointed nails work better.
However, if you have wide fingers – round the plate and opt for short nails.
When choosing the color of nails, apart from being guided only by taste, it is also worth paying attention to your complexion. The color you like about the bottle or someone else’s may not necessarily suit you.
So how do you choose the color of your wedding nails?
In the case of a very light (porcelain) complexion, with a slightly pinkish shade, delicate beige (but not all shades) and pinks will work well. Expressive colors such as burgundy red, 💜 violet, fuchsia or navy blue will be a good idea.
If you have a fair complexion with a yellowish shade, pastel shades of pink and blue, as well as silver and the mirror effect will be perfect for wedding nails!
Nude, dark gray, coral and chocolate brown shades look fantastic with olive complexion (i.e. neither light nor swarthy, with a warm, yellowish shade).🍫
If, on the other hand, you have a swarthy (Mediterranean) complexion, choose pink, burgundy, brown or gold.
Hybrid, gel or classic manicure?
If you have nice and well-groomed nails, you can choose a classic manicure. Its disadvantage, however, is that such a varnish flakes off very quickly and the nails do not look perfect after one day.😕
This is where a hybrid manicure comes in. It lasts up to 3-4 weeks, is definitely more durable than standard nail polishes and already gives the possibility of making 💎decorations or special effects, such as ombre. In addition, a hybrid manicure gives some protection to weaker nails.
In addition, its implementation is simple and does not require much time. Currently, many girls do hybrid manicure at home.
And you can too! 🤩 See how easy it is:
In the long run, you will save not only time but also 💸 money. And when you get used to it, you will surely forget about other methods and you will be a nail stylist for yourself.😃
You can complete the basic hybrid kit yourself or use the starter kits specially designed for beginners.
However, the hybrid gives only a small possibility of extending the nails (by about 3 mm).
Therefore, if you want to extend your nails more or you have very delicate and brittle nails – a gel manicure, which is definitely 💪harder and gives stronger support to the nails, will be better for wedding nails.
👑 Summary, i.e. what wedding nails design to choose? 👑
What should I consider when choosing wedding nails?
First, think about whether you want them to be 🎩 classic, delicate, or if you prefer a bolder proposition. Then choose a color or technique (french, baby boomer ). Take into account your complexion, as well as the shape of your nails and whether you want to make a manicure with a 💅 regular nail polish, hybrid or gel.
What are the current ⭐️ trends in the field of wedding nails?
The baby boomer is invariably popular. In addition, golden accents and expressive white are popular. However, the latest hit, not only wedding ones, are mirror nails and the negative effect.
Are wedding nails a must? Do I have to deal with this?
Of course you don’t have to do anything. If you are not interested in the latest stylizations and you don’t want to spend time choosing nail polish, try to make your nails look well-groomed. Often, during a wedding or reception, a close-up of your hands will appear, 💍 so it’s worth making them look aesthetically pleasing.
Which wedding manicure to choose – classic, hybrid or gel? 😮
It depends on the 🏋️♀️ condition of your nails and what you care about. If your nails are very brittle or you would like to extend them – choose a gel. If you want a lasting effect lasting several weeks, but your nails are in good or average condition – choose a hybrid. However, if you have nails in very good condition, do not have time or feel like a trip to the manicurist and you are able to spend the morning on the wedding day or the evening before painting your nails – choose a classic nail polish.
