Our 10 Favorite Wedding Nails From Pinterest and Instagram

Your bridal mani should be a little something special—here are a few gorgeous styles to inspire you.
by Andrea Fowler

Your wedding day nails can be different from what you wear on the daily—sometimes the same shade of light pink polish you throw on every weekend just won’t do. This is your opportunity to be pampered and treat yourself to a special look. Pull inspiration from your wedding gown, color palette, the flowers in your bouquet or this year's hottest trends to create a look that’s unique to the occasion.

Remember: Your hands will be on display all day long—from guests asking to see your ring to posing for shots with your photographer. You'll be happy you sprung for a fabulous nail treatment. Here are some of our favorite wedding-worthy nails to inspire your own style.
