I’m not the french manicure type- it reminds me too much of when I was so high maintenence in high school.

I love the look of nude shades on nails- to me they look classic and clean.

I went with the french.  My second choice was just a pale, sheer pink.

I also went with French…I figured it was classic and it would still look good 50 years from out.  I have to say, though, I’ve been loving the photos where girls have a dark shade of red on their nails, kind of makes me wish I had done that as well as worn some sexy red shoes.

I’m going with pink and white acrylics. I was torn between just a painted on manicure or acrylics, and honestly, I don’t want to worry about chipping them all week! So alas, the short pink frenchies win. Too long and too square, though and I think they’re a little too scary for me

To me, french manicures always make me think of when I had big fake nails when I was younger, and I worry that they will look like that in pictures. So, I think I’m going to try to do a light pink or light gold.

I can’t help but think of high school and realllllllllly big bangs when I think of French manicures. I think they look a bit dated now, so I will probably go with a light pink, nude or something neutral on my nails.

I went with the french manicure since I’ve always been partial to them. But if you go to the OPI website, the "Fairytale Bride" collection colors are all lovely. Plus they have that cool "Try it on" feature.

I’m definitely going French. I love the look.

I think I want my nails to be a soft, subtle shade that will not be dated or clash with my gown. Or I think I want to just go natural and have my nails be crystal clear–classic!

French is also a nice choice and red would be a daringly nice pop of color.

I’m thinking about a nice pink.  I like the way a french looks, but I also think it accentuates the fact that I have acrylic overlays.  My nails are so fragile that if I want nails at all I have to have overlays.  So I’ve been trying out this lovely color from OPI calling Pinking of You and I really like it, and Mr. CC even noticed and said it was nice.  But I’m going to go check out the Princess Bride line too!

I know I want hot pink toes with polkadots coming out from my peeptoe wedges and I’m still trying to decide on my nails, thinking a medium bright pink?

I’ve actually just started thinking of this (I have wayy too much time on my hands) and I really think I want a pop of color on my nails. Hot pink or classic red, something to stand out against my very white dress. But, that’s today and my wedding isn’t until May 2010…I’ll definitely change my mind.

I’m wearing Mimosas for Mr and Mrs by OPI, its very pale and neutral. I was reading somewhere that nude/neutral nail polish accentuate the diamond in pictures.
