French Manicures

French manicures are traditionally a white tip on a natural nail. However, Nails Magazine shows how to kick it up a notch on a bridal manicure by having a wrinkle effect to the French tip. This subtle ombre effect gives the classic French a modern twist that is a surefire way for any bride to make a statement on her special day.

Half-Moon Manicures

Half-moon manicures featured in the issue show how to make an even bigger statement. Smaller and larger hand-painted stones blend together for a look that captures the engagement ring in an unexpected way. For a bolder look, accentuate the stones by painting over them with metallic shades, such as silver and gold.

Matte + Metallic

The June 2017 issue of Nails Magazine also suggests pairing matte designs withmetallic. A matte black color on the thumb and metallic silver on the other fingernails creates a stark contrast of textures with the added touch of sparkle, which makes the design especially eye-catching. This could be the perfect choice to show off unique tastes on a big day.

Accent Tips

The combinations of these ideas and more can help create an unforgettable look without going overboard.

From classic French manicures with a modern twist to a variety of styles with accent tips and rhinestones, the possibilities of nail art are almost limitless.
