It's officially wedding season, which means it’s time for your wedding guest mani’s to shine! Whether you are a special member of the bridal party or attending as a guest, your mani should be ready to celebrate! Depending on how formal the affair is, you may want to choose your wedding guest nails tocompliment the wedding dress code, and the overall theme of the wedding, but also reflect your personal style and compliment your look.
No matter the theme or dress code for the wedding, the best ideas for wedding guests' nails are some of the classics. Starting with the most timeless, the French manicure. Probably the quintessential mani for wedding guest nails, as it is sophisticated and will complement any stylish look. Soft pastel pinks and neutral shades are also popular for weddings as they exude femininity and romance. Floral nail art designs also offer sweet romantic looks, while metallic shades in gold, silver, and rose gold will add a bit of luxury to your wedding guest mani.
Put a twist on the classic French manicure by using gold polish for the tips instead of white. This adds a glamorous touch to a traditional style and looks great on a variety of nail shapes and lengths. If you want just a pinch of gold then maybe having just one gold glitter accent nail is perfect for you. Paint all of your nails with a pastel or neutral shade then just add a pop of gold glitter to one nail on each hand. This adds a touch of sparkle and elegance without overpowering the look. Another gorgeous wedding guest nail look is creating a gold ombre nail effect by using different shades of gold polish. Start with a lighter gold shade at the cuticle and gradually darken the color towards the tips. This creates a stunning gradient effect that's perfect for a wedding.
Choosing a nude base color and then adding chic embellishments is a unique way to have your nails look very chic and sophisticated for a wedding. Having a more natural and clean aesthetic for your manicure is very trendy and looks elegant. Add design elements like metallic accents, pearls, subtle glitter, rhinestones or even celestial nail stickers. If you’re a nail art pro, you can use nail art brushes freehand paint flowers, add delicate patterns or try gold foil nails. Nude wedding guest nails with any of these accents create elegant nail looks that are perfect for any wedding. If adding accents is not for you, then keep them clean and classy with sheer shades with just a little bit of shimmer or shine by going glazed or adding just a bit of a chrome effect on the nails. The clean aesthetic is proving that natural glossy nails do not have to be simple or boring, they are lovely just as they are.
Elegant nail colors for weddings can vary depending on the theme of the wedding, the season of the year, and of course what you are wearing! A spring or summer wedding may call for pastels and lighter shades, while a fall or winter wedding may have you feeling shades that are a bit darker and richer. Although, many elegant colors can be worn year-round at any type of wedding. Red is a timeless and sophisticated color that's always a safe bet for a wedding. Choose a classic red polish with a glossy finish for a chic and elegant look. A variety of pinks and silvers are also elegant colors that can go in between the seasons and complement any wedding guest outfit. Even darker, more sultry shades like burgundy or deep blues or greys can be sophisticated and look elegant at a formal wedding.
Classy wedding guest nails can come in all different shapes and sizes, and choosing a color or nail design will depend on what you feel is best for the occasion, but here are a few ideas we love for classy wedding guest nails.
