So the countdown to D-day has begun and almost everything is struck off your wedding checklist. What a relief, isn’t it? Once you have your bridal outfit hanging in your cupboard and makeup artist booked, you can actually relax. But erm, have you decided what you’re going to do with your nails?

Although bridal manicure is one of the last-minute decisions (and we get it), you need to take it damn seriously. If you are going with the classic red and golden bridal lehenga, we don’t want you to stick with the default nail paint.

Here are five trendy red and gold nail art ideas that will go perfectly with your bridal outfit and are so stunning that you’d want to take them to your manicurist right away.    

 

Glitter and chrome

Confused about what to pick between chrome nails and glitter nails? Why not choose both? Get chrome manicure in red and pair it with gold glitter nail polish. While glitter looks glam, chrome tones it down and gives it a sophisticated feel which makes it a stunning nail art for brides.

 

Foil art

Foil nail art was the biggest hit in the manicure world this year. Although it is a minimalistic nail art that’s usually done on clear nails, you can make it wedding-y but painting it on red nails. It looks oh-so-gorgeous and pretty that all eyes are going to be on your nails when he slips the ring on.

 

Shimmer ombre

Here’s another way to include the glimmering golden in your wedding manicure. Give your red nails an ombre effect by painting clear, golden shimmer nail paint over them. Ask your manicurist to play up the design by painting some nails from the nail bed and others from the tip to give it an artistic touch.

 

Polka red

Draw tiny polka dots with red and golden on one nail and paint the rest of the nails as you want. It is chic and trendy and what’s more, it looks equally gorgeous on short nails as well.

Get glossy nails in deep red with golden nail accents strategically placed to make them bling just enough.
