You plan your wedding down to every little detail—every petal and hair in a specific place—so shouldn't your wedding nails be granted the same attention to detail? Tradition has seemed to dictate a simply-manicured bride in a pale shade, but evolving nail trends and techniques popularized delicate designs, deliberate shapes, and a re-appreciation for how much a certain manicure can seal an entire look. Nail artists are highlighting negative space and embracing new materials, so you may as well start taking advantage of the aesthetic possibilities for your wedding nails.
