I had my nail trial yesterday and it was horrible. The girl did not really know what she was doing and ended up doing a messy job (I could have done it better myself, so that’s money down the drain). I decided to go to a fancy place without a trial and skip the pedi to be able to afford it.
I thought a nail professional would be able to tell me what goes with the dress and we could figure it out together – wrong.
I don’t like the classic french, and I’m really not sure what would go with my dress.
I was thinking maybe something like this:
Or maybe the reverse:
Or something completely different?
Usually, I love color. But I’m a little afraid to use it here.

I’m doing something similar to the first picture. It’s really simple actually, just find a buildable glitter.
I also think a light champagne gold would look nice.

im a fan of the first and second one. Usually gold compliments blush dresses 🙂

I JUST did the first photo, almost exactly, for this wedding I attended this weekend. They looked beautiful (still do) and I got lots of compliments on them!
It would look fantastic with a blush dress! And it’s not exactly hard either…I mean I did it myself in about an hour, including drying time; any professional should be able to do it nearly perfectly if you don’t want to bother yourself. I used three polishes: a sheer neutral base (OPI’s Moon Over Mumbai), a pinky-gold glitter (OPI’s Katy Perry Teenage Dream) and a chunky all-gold glitter on top (Wet n’ Wild’s Fergie Glamorous).
Have fun, whatever you choose!

I just tried the last picture myself while I was shopping today. Kinda liked it.
I also tried a blush color with a pink shimmer, also OPI, but don’t remember the name. I liked that one as well.
I like all of them and can’t decide 🙂

@moiraine: Maybe a neutral glitter?

I agree – gold looks very nice with blush dresses. You could even do all your nails glittery gold, or maybe do all of them neutral and then the ring fingers super sparkly! I love that.

My sister’s wedding was in Blush. I too didn’t want the typical french. I love Shellac! I actually do my own and played with color combos til I got what I wanted. CND has a beautiful shade called Romantique that is a pretty blush shade. It would be beautiful by itself or with a white tip or with a sparkle tip.
I did a combo using CND strawberry smoothie (2 light coats), CND gold vip (shimmer), and a light coat of Gelish bashful (optional) with a white tip done last. I love it so much it’s my new favorite to wear on my fingers and toes! I’ll post some pics of it.
Romantique is more of a creamy matte color vs. the one I did has a sparkle shimmer to it. But the CND gold vip would look great over the Romantique as well.
CND website may be of some help with finding a salon that knows what they’re doing.
