Wedding Nails: Pretty Inspiration from New York Fashion Week
Have you remembered to put wedding nails on your to do list? We hope so–they are an incredibly important part of your bridal style! Everyone will be looking at your hand adorned with your new wedding bling after the ‘I dos’ so your wedding nails should be pretty and fashionable. Though bold colour and rich tones have been big for the past few seasons (trends we’ve fully embraced for wedding nails because why shouldn’t you be in step with fashion?) for spring 2013, there’s a return to softness when it come to nails.
The CND team designed looks for several runway shows in New York early this month and most were fairly understated compared to what we’ve seen in the past few seasons. Some of our favourite looks that can provide inspiration for your wedding nails included subtle sparkle, pale washes of colour and light texture on your nails.
At Angel Sanchez, lovely lilac was the shade of choice and nails were long and almond-shaped. Monique Lhuillier also featured purple in the form of a lavender wash on nails. For a little more obvious glamour, Behnaz Sarafpour had subtle glittery nails that looked like they had been dipped in fairy dust.
Read on as we highlight our five favourite wedding nail looks and how you can get them.
- <strong>Lilac French Mani</strong><br />
Seen at Angel Sanchez and created by CND lead artist Shelena Robinson, this mani contrasted shiny and matte finishes. Robinson blended a few CND colours together to get the perfect frothy shade and the look is pure romance.<br />
- <strong>Fairy Dust Mani</strong><br />
Seen at Behnaz Sarafpour an created by CND lead artist Shelena Robinson nails were whimsical featuring a prismatic glitter fade (CND Additives in Spectrum Shimmer and Antique Bronze). Love the pixie-perfect effect!<br />
- <strong>Degas Ballerina Mani</strong><br />
Seen at Christian Siriano and created by CND lead artist Angi Wingle nails featured CND Grapefruit Sparkle (new for spring 2013) to create a simple, clean and oh-so-feminine nail.<br />
- <strong>Bubbly Mani</strong><br />
Seen at Joy Cioci and created by CND lead artist Candice Manacchio, nails were adorned with pretty micro-beads and teeny pearls to create an underwater bubble effect. Pretty wedding-perfect, non?<br />
- <strong>Aquatic Reflection Mani</strong><br />
Seen at Monique Lhuillier and created by CND lead artist Candice Manacchio nails were luminous and lovely. Manacchio used CND Lavender Pearl Effect mixed with CND Lilac Longing polish (new for spring 2013).<br />
