For light/natural(ish) colours: Moonlight and Roses, Romantique, Beau, Negligee

I might wear Masquerade, but it’s not at all subtle!

OPI just brought out UV cured polishes as well and I have Bubble Bath on right now, which is a really lovely subtle warm ballet pink.  Very pretty and bridal! OPI plans to bring out more of their regular shades in the UV polish in the future, too.

I’ve had Romantique on my nails a number of times, and think it’s pretty much the perfect bridal colour – very soft ballet pink.

I would love to have a dark, vampy colour on my toes though!

I had this done in October as a bridesmaid and had a french mani. I liked it, until my nails started chipping and trying to remove all of them completely was the worse thing ever! If your going to do it, I would suggest having them removed by the techs who applied them.

I LOVE gel manicures. I bought the Red Carpet Manicure set. Its an at home kit that that is the same thing as Shellac. 

 The best way to get the polish to last is to make sure your nails are grown out so the tech can seal the “free edge”

As for removal, buff the nail, and just use an acetone based remover, soak a cotton ball, place it over the nail and wrap in tin foil. Leave it for about 10-15 minutes and it should peel right off. 

I’m not to familiar with the colors from shellac, but I often do french manicures with my RCM kit and i love them!

My fingernails were Romantique, or something similar (light pink anyway). 

My toes were bright blue (not shellac, of course) Laughing

I ahave done the Shellac mani in just a French mani and it looked great. Follow @mmr66 advice on removal and you will be fine… promise. I JUST did this last week and NO problems.

Love Shellac’s “Clearly Pink” and sometimes I ask they do a coat of something shimmery on top like “Gold VIP Status.” 

Shellac is perfect for a wedding!
