Before I became a SAHM, I was a manicurist for 12 years. Although I've always pictured myself having a classic French mani for my wedding day, I love crazy/funky nails and now I'm having second thoughts. What are your nail inspirations? I'm leaning towards all white or a nudish/pinkish color. I love "different" nails but have always wanted to keep it classy for pictures because I don't want my grandkids to hate my manicure when they look at my wedding pics. Lol

    I'm doing French manicure tips with a silver sparkly line in between the white and the pink

    I'm debating between doing French tip or having them fuschia since my wedding color is fuschia, I'm not sure how that would look though. Thoughts?

    Following. I cannot find the right color. I have a family friend at nail salon and will see what he suggests. I love the look @Amytherese posted.

    I do OPI "bubble bath" gel manicure - it's typically the color they put on the nail with a French manicure - but instead of the white, I just do an extra coat of Bubble Bath - it's neutral with just a pinkish hint - it looks natural but still polished!

    No french tip for me, I feel like you can't even see it unless you're looking directly at someone's nails. I'll probably do something like this or maybe with pink.

    I've never had a french manicure before but I'm either doing that or something very neutral. I was originally planning to wear coral nail polish, but when I got my manicure before my engagement pics my manicurist suggested that they should be a light neutral color so that the ring is the star of the pictures, not the nails. I thought she made a good point.

    I was thinking of doing something different but when back to the classic french mani... I love it

    @Jennifer D- what about a French with a line of fuschia?

    I have never liked french manicures. I am opted for Jamberry nail wraps in two layers. The bottom will be plum (our color) and the top will be a gold scroll (our accent color). I was going to just do the gold until we laid them on top of each other. FH really likes the way it looks. Oh, and one nail will be an accent nail - the baseball design (as I have a few baseball accents in the wedding for me).

    As much as I like the fancy sparkles and stuff, I wanted a classic French manicure for my wedding.

    These are my nails; had the same on my toes.

    I will probably do a French mani and I may add some white rose stamping up near the top of the nail beds. I've been playing with ideas here recently, but I may add some white iridescent glitter to the white of the French tip.

    I definitely don't want anything too bright, because I don't want it to be the first thing you see in photos.
