10 neutral nail colours ideal for your big day
Well, your big day came around quicker than you thought it would, didn’t it? Now I’m guessing your dress has been sorted since about a week after your engagement. Same with the venue. In fact, I’d bet my lipstick collection that you’ve got most of the details of your wedding all under control.
Most. Not all.
Like your nail polish for your wedding day. I bet you’ve been so busy ironing out all of the big details that you forgot about your wedding day manicure. Well, luckily for you, we’ve narrowed down the thousands of neutral shades out there down to just a few hues that will show off your ring beautifully and won’t take the attention away from your gorgeous make-up, hair and dress.
Picture Polish in White Wedding
You can’t really go past a shade that has wedding in the title, can you? The slightly off-white shade will look great on those who have an olive complexion and it won’t look like you’re trying to match the white of your dress.
OPI Don’t Burst My Bubble from the Oz the Great and Powerful range
This light pinky shade is the perfect colour for the bride who wants a glossy manicure without looking like her nails have been painted at all. Understated and elegant.
ck one color Long Wear + Shine Nail Color in Romper Room
The brown-based colour of this nail polish is perfect for those who want a manicure that can be seen from a distance without being distracting or too much.
Max Factor Glossfinity in Opal
If you find that you often gravitate towards grey nail colours, then you might find this white/grey shade is the perfect wedding day hue. The high-gloss finish is the icing on the, err, wedding cake.
Bio Sculpture Gel nails in Ivory Beige
When it comes to wedding day nails, there are three things that every girl wants: the perfect shade, a chip-free finish and strong nourished nails. And that’s exactly what you’ll get with Bio Sculpture’s gel nails in Ivory Beige. The colour is just right, the finish will last for up to three weeks, and because it’s made from natural ingredients, it’ll care for your nails too!
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Shell We Dance
Who doesn’t love a gorgeous subtle pink? Wear it on your wedding day for some subtle oomph, or wear it as an everyday shade that won’t conflict with your day-to-day wardrobe.
Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in Bare Bones
This nude polish is the kind of shade that’s probably better suited to those who have olive-based skin. Not only will it complement your skin tone, but it will work well with silver jewellery, too. Note: the colour is more nude than shown in the picture.
MeMeMe Nail Collection Long Lasting Gloss in Innocent
The shade name is kinda perfect for your wedding day, isn’t it? And really, you couldn’t get a better title for this shade – a soft, almost-nude pink that’ll be the perfect finishing touch to your wedding look.
Polished London Nail Enamel in Ballerina
There’s not much not to love about this ballerina-slipper-pink. It’s dainty and ladylike and won’t steal the show. It will, however, be oohed and aahed over as people fawn over your ring.
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis in Rose Paradise
This nail polish shade is almost as if nude and light pink had a perfect, neutral baby. But it won’t make your hands look washed out and insipid. Nope. Instead, it’ll give your nails that slightly done-up look that’s just what you’re looking for on your wedding day.
