5 bridal nail art ideas that are too pretty to handle

Written by Sumona BoseMay 26, 2020

From outfit to makeup, there is so much to do when putting together a wedding look. If you’re someone who loves to dive into the details, bridal nail art becomes an essential part of that long list of to-dos. Especially if you have an over-enthusiastic wedding photographer who has planned multiple hand shots for you on the big day!

Fret not because we have some beautiful bridal nail art ideas for you to draw inspiration from. And nope, they are not all just French tips!

01. Classic florals

While florals are a classic nail art design, desi weddings have eluded them. While they might be too OTT with a mehndi, they’ll be perfect for your engagement day look. Do the base with the Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Gloss Nail Color - Peach Blossom and get creative with vibrant florals to match your lehenga!

02. Blush and glitter

If you plan on wearing coffin nails for your big day, pick a style to tone down their distracting drama. Go wild with glitter on your ring finger with the Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish - Treasure. Keep the rest of the fingers muted with the Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Gloss Nail Color - Nude Flush.

03. Statement red

A great look to sport with your deep henna. Doing just the tips of your nails in red will enhance the look of your mehndi. Pick a dramatic shade like the Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish - Moviestar and let all that bold colour do the talking!

04. Minimal glam

A minimal bride might be a rarity at desi weddings, but they do exist! We love this idea of keeping the nail completely bare except for a chic line of gold glitter down the middle. Pick a glitter texture like the Lakme Color Crush Nail Art - G8 to make sure that it’s not lost among all the bling!

05. White element

Add desi designs in white to your wedding day mani. We love that this nail art looks like chandan design you see on Bengali brides and we’re living for it! Create your white designs with Lakme True Wear Color Crush-08 and add some shimmery drama on your pinkies with Lakme Color Crush Nail Art - G5.
