Nailing your wedding day mani is one of the (many) minor details that pay off BIG on the big day. We’re going to go out on a limb and presume you don’t want a lewk that competes with the ring. That doesn’t mean you can’t have some beautiful nail art that’s way more fun than a French manicure.

Wedding nails - look 1: The simple centre line
