This week we’re talking nails. Wedding manicures to be precise. A French manicure is probably the most traditional choice for brides. But anyone who has been reading this blog has probably realised that I’m not necessarily going for the traditional bridal look.

I’m also not hugely keen on other people painting my nails after a few dodgy experiences. I have been planning for my bridesmaids and me to have manis or pedis the afternoon before the wedding as a bit of girly pampering but will be going for a pedi myself.

On my nails, I had been planning to wear gold glitter polish after reading that Alex at The Frugality did on her wedding day. Alex’s reasons for wearing glitter polish on her wedding day are exactly why it seemed such a good idea – glitter polish lasts well as chips aren’t so noticeable and gold is part of our extended colour scheme! Then I spotted this look over on the Bridal Fashion Week catwalks and fell in love:

I’m now planning to have a trial of something like this – I’ll report back!

If you’re keen to try this look but at a more frugal price, Boots No7 are currently offering £3 off vouchers and have a few polishes you could try out – try layering their pink glitter (Daisy Darling) and gold glitter (Sun Rays) over a sheer neutral shade, like Practically Perfect or Pink Meringue.

How did you – or would you wear – your nails for your wedding day?
