We've been seeing more manicures on Instagram that have clear nail polish with pops of color only on the tip, or fun, eye-catching designs that aren't obvious at first sight—and we're all about it. For minimalist brides who want something a little more conversational than a nude or pink polish, how about a thin gold stripe on each nail, or pretty florals? Take a look at these five manis below to get some inspo for your own barely there mani.
