Wedding Season: OPI's Top Shades for Brides

It's no surprise that planning a wedding is majorly stressful for any bride. There are so many details involved - choosing the right florals, putting together the perfect seating chart, making sure you're stocked up on your mother-in-law's favorite Pinot Grigio, the list goes on. One detail that should not cause any stress is your nail polish - it should be simple, light, and not distract from the rest of your bridal look. Below we're sharing this season's most popular shades for brides and their bridesmaids. We promise they'll be perfect for your big day.


From left to right: Polly Want A Lacquer?, I Can Never Hut Up, Getting Nadi on My Honeymoon (perfect for blushing brides!), and Coconuts Over OPI. All in Infinite Shine from our Fiji Collection, these pastels are perfectly subtle and a great way to add a pop of color to your ensemble. 


From left to right: Samoan Sands, Bubble Bath, Tickle My Francey. Have you been in search of a pink that's not too over the top? One of these shades is just what you need!

Shade shown: Pale to the Chief. If you want to go completely nude on your wedding day (with your nails, that is), this shade is perfect for you!


From left to right: Pearl of Wisdom, Dutch Tulips, Beyond the Pale Pink. These shades are all classics - an opalescent white to match your gorgeous gown, a pink-red that is for the bolder bride, and a simple pale pink that will compliment your delicate ring finger.


If you want to take a more unconvential route and get a little creative with your manicure on your wedding day, try mixing up your shades. This look features the following shades: Barefoot in Barcelona, Maintaining My Sand-ity, Dulce de Leche.

And there you have it, our top bridal shades for the 2017 wedding season. We hope this is one less stress for you, because nails should be fun and beautiful, especially on your big day. Besides the best shades, here are some more general tips for wedding-approved manicures:

1. We suggest getting your manicure the day before your wedding for regular polish or OPI's Infinite Shine three-step system. For GelColor, we suggest up to three days before. Not sure what system is best for you? Read about all three here

2. Consider the rest of your look before choosing your lacquer. If your dress is very intricate, you may want to opt for a more subtle shade. If your dress is sleek and simple, feel free to go a bit bolder with your lacquer. And your flowers, do you want to match your manicure to the colors of your bouquet? 

3. Don't forget about your bridesmaids! You want their nails to look good as well, pictures last forever afterall! Arrange for them to get manicures the day before and either assign a shade or let them choose from a few different shades that you, as the bride, approve of.


Happy Wedding Season!

Love, OPI
