Wedding Day Nails

As we get closer to the big day, I've been thinking more and more about my wedding day look. You guys know I'm all ready thinking about hair (Still working on it!), and now I started thinking about my nails.

My wedding is on a Saturday, but seeing as I have the Friday before off of work, I think I'll get my nails done then. Bridesmaid Marie has the day off too, so she'll be joining me. Yay!

It seems like such a silly thing to think about, but I just keep thinking of those gorgeous pro-pics with close ups on the bride's hands/rings/nails/bouquet. See look - a lovely photo of a first dance, with nails on full view! See, that's reason enough to fancy up your fingers.

I told the bridesmaids that they don't have to get their nails done, but if they do, to please get french tips. I think french tips are super classy, and they always always look good!

If that's the bridesmaids, what about the bride? Originally I wanted to go French Tips too, but I wanted to do something a liiiiitle more fancy/exciting than normal. Turns out there's quite a few options that are French Tip classy, but also pop and fresh.

Who knew french tips could be so hip? It's pretty cool that there are so many options for somethings that seems so simple. So what did this Giraffe decide?

Hahaha, just kidding! Although, I wouldn't be completely opposed to putting my own photo on my nails, but really, I'm thinking something simple, but classy. Like this:

A little different from a normal French manicure, but just enough to give me the extra "oomph" that I'm looking for. Love it! I'm going to try and not break my own nails so I won't have to get fake ones, but we'll see how that goes.

Anybody else getting fancy nails for the big day? What look are you going for?

Wedding is always an interesting event and party to me. It always special for the guests and specially for the couples. I love wedding foods and dresses.The nail polishes are so cute to look. And also so stylish. It will be very fashionable with royal blue bridesmaid dresses . The nail polishes are so lovely to see and also so stunning. Green is looking so attractive.
