Nail color?

Suggestions for the perfect wedding nail color? When I want a neutral nail, I tend to go more for the pinky shades, but I fear this would look funny next to my dress (ivory with champagne underlay, definitely has more of a gold/antique feel to it). Usually the true nudes I’ve found end up too translucent. My nails are also fairly short, if that matters. Thoughts and pictures welcome! Edited to fix a word.

    My nails will be black, square shapes so I can't help much. Try Pinterest though. They have everything.

    I wanted to do a blush color but got these for engagement pictures and I love them! The color is champagne and it's OPI gel. Shimmery without seeming like middle school chunky glitter

    Another shot of them

    ETA: wow it's really hard for the color to show up when you upload photos here because it distorts the quality but I promise they are pretty!

    My dress is ivory over champagne and I think I'm doing burgundy nails to match my bridesmaids' dresses. I love the shimmery nude above. You could also go ivory.

    Has anyone ever tried OPI's "I only drink champagne"? I'm just worried 2 layers won't be enough to make the true color.

    I would just do a classic clear French manicure but do what you feel comfortable with

    Mine was called Oh What a Knight. I don't normally do sparkle, but it was a good balance of color and subtle.

    OPI Funny Bunny (soft white with a pinky/cool undertone) is great, so is I Couldn't Bare Less (soft white with a slight yellow/warm undertone). Picking a "nude" nail is a lot like picking a nude lipstick or foundation-the type of nude that works best for you will depend on your skin tone and color. Check Pinterest for inspo, too!
