  • poll: Do you think I should have my nails painted for my wedding?

    Yes, both fingers and toes

    At least fingers

    At least toes

    Go for naked nails!

    I voted “go for naked nails” because I think you should do what YOU want with your nails for your wedding day. 


    That said, I would strongly recommed a clear coat for your finger nails to make them look more polished (pun intended). If it chips or peels after the wedding, oh well. If you’re wearing open-toe shoes, I’d suggest at least 2 clear coats on your toes as well.  Or a very pale, shimmery white. Definitely have them professionally done so that they look even and pampered.  Good luck!!


    p.s. OMG, your ring is STUNNING!!

    I had my nails shaped, buffed, and painted with 2 coats of clear polish for my wedding. It looked natural and elegant.

    I’m not doing my nails. I am getting a mani/pedi though. But it’s mostly for pampering’s sake. I’ve never had either. I’m a hardcore nail biter and cuticle picker (wish I wasn’t!!!) so my nails will need some work and they might need to do SOMETHING to them but I want them to at least look as natural as possible.

    If you have good nails or prefer natural go for it 🙂 

    Wish I could but my nails are horrible 🙁 Always chip at the end (the white part) so I’ll probably opt for a light peach/ coral shade.

    I probably won’t. I never, ever, ever paint my fingernails, and I see no reason to do it for the wedding. I will definitely make sure my nails are looking good though! I will probably paint my toenails though.

    I love having my toes painted so I’ll do that. I like having my nails painted but a manicure on my just doesn’t last (even the shellac ones don’t last a full week). Plus i’m getting married in another country and don’t know any salons there that do nails. So I think I’ll get a basic manicure before I go, and then do a clear coat or tow myself the day of the wedding and that’s it.

    I never paint my finger nails, but I always have colour on my toes. I’m planning on having a gel manicure with a simple colour, just so my hands look nice and polished. If I had nice enough fingernails, I probsbly wouldn’t paint them either because I hate chipping polish!

    for the cuticle bitter, that used to be me!! I used to bite my cuticles and skin around my nails so badly they would bleed and peel and it was so not attractive. I made a conscious effort to stop 4 months ago, and the difference is crazy. It’s very very hard to stop and resist the urge, even just to NOT do it subconsciously..but I’m so happy with the results. My cuticles are even, no splitting or breakage or peeling, they look fantastic.
