Just because you’re a bride doesn’t mean your nails have to be boring! Jump out of the classic french manicure and jump into stylish WOW with some of these beautiful manicures.

This year, you’ll see a LOT of variety in wedding nails. It’s not your basic pink and white anymore. Color is big, shapes are fun, and length is dramatic. Designs run the gamut from subtle stripes to soft flowers, glitter fades. and white moons.

Ombre color is big — especially white-to-soft-pink. But any color is game. Matte colors, glitter colors, and metallics are hot and combining them is even hotter! THibnk flourish, stipes, hearts, and flowers. Add a little bling with a rhinestone or two and you’re on point.

Long, dramatic nails are IN! Stilleto shapes, ballerina (also called coffin) shapes, almond shapes, and mountain peak shapes for both the bride and her attendants! You can see more on nail shapes over here.

Some of our clients have given us their mani pictures, below. These were all done at Unique Nails & Spa in Oceanside. We’ve also curated a few images from Pinterest to inspire you. (We’ve linked to those so you can find these gorgeous images there, too.)

Think big and have fun!

It’s your day! Get your bridesmaids and family involved and schedule a bridal nail party. Our newest location, Unique Nails Bar, can accommodate bridal parties in a private suite — with champagne, sweets, mani’s & pedi’s!
