First, paint your nails white
Start by painting your nails an opaque white color. I love white for brides + I find it very easy to decorate. For this bridal nail design I used 3 coats of my favorite Essie Blanc.

Then, add silver striping tape
Silver striping tape will make these wedding nails look exquisite and elegant. Cut 10 pieces of self adhesive nail art striping tape. Adjust stripes to your nails as it they will indicate where a French tip would start. Cut the excess edges with scissors. Tip! Paint your base color the day before you will add striping tape in order to avoid any smudges and be able to play with it with no risk to ruin your flawless base.

Last, add top coat
Add a good layer of high shine top coat to make sure your striping tape stays in place. Tip! Pay special attention to cover all nail edges so that tape won’t start peeling off.

This was my super easy wedding nails idea, I hope you enjoyed!

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I want to share with you a DIY wedding nail art with water decals. I think water decals are great for brides for many reasons:

♥ they are easy to use and you can make your own wedding nails design
♥ you have a great selection of prints to choose from
♥ water decals look good on short nails
♥ water decals are flattering on any nail shape
♥ they make a statement

I truly believe you cannot go wrong with water decals for your bridal nail design. Look at these beautiful roses on a bridal white background.

This wedding nails design has nothing more to it than the water decals technique. Check out my tutorial on how to use water decals for nail art to get how they work. Tip! It is very important to paint your nails in a color closest to your water decals print background. For this design I used my Essie Blanc and I think it fits perfectly the water decal and the white wedding day magic :)

Thanks for reading, I hope this idea will inspire your manicure for your big day!

Hello lovelies!

Today I want to show you these sugary nails which I think would make the perfect DIY bridal manicure. Sweet sugar is not only in this airy white color but also in its beautiful texture.

Sally Hansen Sugar Fix 200

Sally Hansen Sugar Fix 200

I recently got my Sally Hansen polishes from their Sugar Coat collection and hurried to put on the white one called Sugar Fix 200. It dried to the most lovely 3D texture! I still cannot stop looking at my nails and it has been almost a week now, lol.

All this time I was thinking that Sally Hansen Sugar Fix 200 will make the perfect DIY wedding manicure. It is easy to apply by yourself, I have 3 coats on my nails for this lovely sugar white bridal manicure and this is all you need. Tip! You do not need a top coat for these sugar nails. It is likely to smooth out the texture too much and you definitely want to show it off. It is also very durable, I have been wearing it for almost a week now and it still has no chips so it will be ideal for that long and special wedding day. It is very affordable. And still, it is not your plain white, it is sweet sugar on your wedding nails and has that extra something to add to your bridal manicure!

I will review Sally Hansen Sugar Coat collection in an upcoming post although you may have guessed my positive thoughts on it already :) I hope this idea inspired your easy and sweet wedding nails!

Hello lovelies!

I want to share with you my black and white feather manicure. This is the first time I make such design just because I thought it would be too difficult to draw the feather detail free handedly. I have been so wrong! This nail art is gentle and sophisticated but at the same time easy to make. This feathery manicure can take some hand flinch or some imperfections because the feather detail is meant to look a little fluffy and airy, if this makes any sense :)

I know I promised a post dedicated to my Liebster award nomination and it will be here soon. I just need some more time to think it over so that I will be able to really contribute to this great initiative. Until then, the feather nails :)

First, paint your nails white.
Make sure to use a thick white shade to a sheer one. This will make the perfect canvas for some drawing.

How to add feathers to your nails?
For this feather nail art I used a regular stippling brush from a nail art polish. Aim for a slightly curved line rather than a straight stripe. Start adding short lines from top to bottom of this line, making the strokes slightly longer as you are getting close to the bottom. Do this for the two sides of your feather. At this point it may not look too much as a feather, but it will :) Now add some more strokes to both sides but this time try to make them with a different angle to the main line, slightly crossing your previously created lines. This will create a little depth and motion to your feather.

I think this nail design can easily make a great wedding day manicure.

Last, add a mat top coat.
We all know feathers are not gel-look-top-polish shiny so for this nail art tutorial I picked a mat top coat.

White: Essie Blanc
Black: Golden Rose nail art in black
Mat top coat: Flormar matifying top coat

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share with you another wedding manicure I created. It is a classic French manicure embellished with tiny gold and silver beads. This will be a rather straightforward tutorial regarding the nail design but I will take some time to tell you my favorite and easy way to apply embellishments to nails.

Paint your nails a nude color.
You can play with the color and chose your favorite shade which will complement your skin tone. I chose a classic natural beige shade and applied 3 coats to achieve an allover color instead of a see through look.

Add the French tip.
This nail design is based on the classic French manicure. Add a white tip to all your nails using guiding stripes. We have discussed how you can use DIY guiding stripes made by regular tape but for this manicure I would suggest to get original French tip guides. This is because original French tip guides are slightly curved to match your natural nail shape, plus we will be looking for perfection, it is a special day after all :)

How to add gold and silver nail jewels.
I used tiny nail art beads you can find in nail art supplies shops as well as online. You know I do not use nail art glue to stick embellishments to nails. I also do not use any picking tool, my technique to position the beads is very easy, just read on.

+ put some gold and silver beads on a towel. This way they would stay in place and won’t start rolling everywhere
+ add a thin coat of clear nail polish at the base of your French tip
+ press your finger on the beads, some of them will stay on it
+ press your finger with the beads onto the clear nail polish line

This is a clean and easy way to attach all kinds of tiny embellishment to your nails. With practice it gets easier and you will be able to control the result to perfection.

Last, add a fat top coat.
To seal the design together, apply a gel look top coat. I have tried using thinner formulas, but they do not grasp the little embellishment as well as fat ones.

White: Essie Blanc
Top coat: Rimmel London 3D Plumping top coat
Beads: gold and silver

Hello lovelies!

I am happy to share with you another wedding nail art design. These are easy DIY bridal nails which still have that extra something to make them special enough for the big day. Read on to see how I created this wedding manicure.

First, apply a pale pink shade to your nails.
I chose pale pink for this design as it is different from the classic natural wedding nail color but still very romantic and mild. Sometimes pale colors are not very pigmented so you may need to us an extra coat to get even and thick nail coverage. For this design I put 3 pink coats.

Last, add luxury :)
I decorated 3 nails with different sized crystals, pearls and silver studs. You do not need some special tools or glue to attach the embellishments. I use a toothpick and a tiny bit of clear polish to pick and stick the details. I believe randomly attached embellishments hold the charm of this design. Still, if you prefer you can attach them using the same pattern for each nail.

Jewels, pearls and studs can be taken from various places and you do not need to look for nail art supplies in particular. You can find tiny embellishments at the haberdashery counter, your local crafts store, even get phone decoration stickers from a dollar store and tear them apart to use the gems for wedding manicure :)

Hello dear manicure lovers!

I am so excited to share with you the first post for my Wedding nails column! This column will be dedicated to wedding nail art, bridal manicure tips and brides nails inspiration.

This wedding nail design is based on simple natural color, embellished with beautiful roses water decals. It is an easy DIY manicure, it is very practical, highly durable and you can be sure it will not fall apart on your big day. Read on for a tutorial how to achieve this romantic bridal design.

First, paint some of your nails a natural shade and some of them white.
I chose to place the design on both ring fingers as well as on my right thumb. Ring finger will be shown off with your new wedding ring, when holding the bouquet and thumb will show when you give your signature at the ceremony. My water decal is a beautiful rose on a white base, so I painted these three fingers white. Paint all other fingers a natural color for a romantic look. This nail art looks best if your natural color is thick and not sheer. Applying more coats will make it look thicker and smoother. I love how the natural shade complements the roses and makes this design look completed.

Then, place water decals on your white nails.
Check out my tutorial to see how to create water decals nail art.

Last, seal your design with top coat.
With water decals I prefer using a long lasting top coat. This gives you some extra insurance that design will stay intact after days, easily more than a week.
