When certain trends reach a certain level of pervasiveness in fashion and beauty, they tend to leak over into the bridal sphere—and that’s exactly what’s happened with nail art. With good reason, too: These fun, pretty, creative amped-up manis are another way for a bride to accessorize her dress, show off her personal style, and even give a little shout-out to her groom.


Rescue Spa Philadelphia licensed nail technician (and creator of the sparkly design above) Sally Man sees most girls still sticking to bridal colors—shades of white and light pink—and subtle patterns for their wedding-day nails, all worked out with her in a pre-wedding consultation. “It’s a trend, and you want to keep it simple and delicate, so that whatever you have on your nails doesn’t go out of style,” she says. Go for ombré sparkles or your groom’s initials on just your two ring fingers, or a lacy design on all 10. Either way, that rock on your left hand just got some competition.

Nail art at Rescue is priced at $10 for two ring fingers and $30 for all 10, on top of either the $25 Classic Manicure or the $45 Ultimate Rescue Manicure. Jenny Lee gown, $2,750 at Sabrina Ann, Ardmore. Platinum emerald- cut diamond ring, $24,000 at Cooke & Berlinger, Haverford. Zoe Adams beaded convertible clutch, $88 at Lord & Taylor, multiple locations.
