With the exception of right around the holidays (when I do a burgundy color) and maybe one week in high summer (when I do a hot pink or a coral), I pretty much never stray from nude to light pink territory. My go-tos are Essie “Ballet Slippers”, OPI “Bubble Bath”, OPI “Mimosas for the Mr. and Mrs”, and Essie Gel Couture “Fairy Tailor”

hemiandhighheels :  Do you want your nails to stand out or blend in? I wanted something low key and opted for a light, shimmery pink. It was the same color I was wearing when my husband proposed and I still wear it often! It’s not the exact shade, but OPI Pedal Faster, Suzi is similar.

I think Ballet Slippers is what the Queen uses. I don’t think you can go wrong with it!

I don’t remember which color I picked. I took this pic after I got my nails done before the wedding.

CND Romantique! It’s similar to OPI Bubble Bath, but I like it better for whatever reason.

I did a dark red/plum colour for my summer wedding nails 🙂

90% of the time my nails are some sort of dark red-brown (think Chanel’s Vamp). Sometimes it’s more red, sometimes more brown/neutral.  Occasionally something like teal blue or emerald green.  

I tried a light pink (Ballet Slippers, in fact) to see if I’d like it as an option for the wedding and while ti was pretty, I just didn’t feel like myself.  I’ll likely stick with my usual nail color for the wedding.

This skews a little from traditional pale pink/French manicure (but if you are used to bright or dark colors then this is pretty close to traditional but still has a twist to be interesting), but I’m really loving Zoya Brighton these days.  It looks like a standard nude/neutral from a distance but with holographic glitter to give it some depth and shine in the sun or close up.  It isn’t a true gritty glitter – just very fine holo.  I got a crazy number of compliments wearing it a few weeks ago.

ETA They also are having their nail polish exchange sale right now, meaning all of their polish is 50% off right now, even if you don’t mail them your old polish.

I love these nude-ish mauve shades for subtle but pretty nails! I had a similar colour for my wedding last august, but I don’t remember which one.

I’ve got emerald green for my toe nails (our wedding colours are emerald green, cream and gold) – I want really thinking about it, but I now have peep toe shoes so I thought it would at least go!

My plan is to go with something quite neutral on my hands, but I might have my ring finger nails gold. Partly due fun, partly after my Christmas manicure, the new Salon I went to wrecked my nails, and the ring finger nails are both still suffering way more than the others!

I had dark, short nails.  Dark dark dark red polish.
