From left to right, top to bottom:

A spin on the traditional french manicure: Try swapping out white tips for gold ones instead. This look is still classic and neutral with a fun & unexpected twist!

For this look, try: OPI Glitzerland on the tips.

A playful take on feminine nails: Your wedding is the perfect time to go all-glam! Add some bling to a feminine, pinky nude manicure for a chic look inspired by Honor’s 2014 runway show.

For this look, try: Essie Romper Room with some added nail bling

Something blue: Stumped on how to incorporate something blue into your attire? Rocking this enchanting shade of  blue is the perfect way to include the traditional wedding color.

For this look, try: OPI I Vant to Be A-Lone Star

Go for the (rose) gold: Rose gold is unexpected, yet flattering on every skin tone. Rock a rose gold polish with any other metallics included in your color scheme for an on-trend mixed metal yet classic look.

For this look, try: OPI Chicago Champagne Toast
