Your Perfectly Pretty Spring Nail Polish Preview

by Abby Gardner

Every aspect of planning your wedding day gets dissected and detailed with a precision unlike anything you've probably ever experienced (no pressure or anything). And that, of course, includes your fingernails. Not since your engagement day will your hands have been more photographed—hence it's never too soon to start thinking about your shade of choice. We picked out some of our favorites from the upcoming spring collections for you to start considering.

Pretty in Pastel


You can never go wrong with a choice from perennial favorite, Essie. Even the names sound matrimonially-appropriate.

Get the look (from left): Find Me An Oasis and Cocktails & Coconuts, $8.50 each,

A Subtle Side of Color


M.A.C. always offers something a little more fashion-forward but you still have a matte or a sparkly choice from two of their most recent lacquers. You could even go completely matte with just one statement glitter nail on your ring finger.

Get the look (from left): Pep Pep Pep and Soiré, M.A.C. Cosmetics Nail Lacquer, $16 each,

Add Some Drama


No need to always go the way of those before you. Enter Maybelline's chunky textured polish and Nars' very trendy shade of cantaloupe.

Get the look (from left): Color Show in Diamond in the Rough, Maybelline, $4.29,; Nail Polish in Wind Dancer, NARS, $19,
