I’m planning on getting a manicure the morning before the wedding.  I don’t know the color yet, but something sheer and light for my fingers.

I went with my real nails, short and wore OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark. I wore a white dress with black accessories (shoes, necklace, sash), so I thought it would be cool to use my signature dark color on my nails. I loved it and never looked back.

I totally understand why some girls go with the french, but I’m more of a fan of a solid light pink if you want something more natural. I just think it looks more modern.

I am still debating between a French manicure or a sheer pink. I haven’t decided yet, but I prefer OPI nail polishes in general. They last forever without chipping.

I highly recommend an american manicure…even though I sometimes get French, I liked the more natural look for photos, etc.  I got it on my real nails, and I honestly don’t remember my toenails, bc it was winter.

I went with my real nails (thankfully they were all the same length and I managed not to break one), and I had a mani pedi of a French Manicure. My nails never looked so good :o)

I’m going for a light, barely-there pink for my (natural) nails, and no idea yet for my toes! My shoes are bright purple, and I haven’t figured out what color nail polish would look best with them.

I’m doing natural nails as well and I haven’t decided on a light pink or french yet.

I have purple shoes, too! I have OPI’s Kyoto Pearl, which I’m thinking about for my toes. It’s a nice sheer white with a sheen.

Here’s a link I found with a description and photos of the difference between French and American manicures: http://www.alllacqueredup.com/2007/04/french-vs-american-manicure.html  

 

For the fingers, has anyone just gone au naturale?

I plan on doing something naturual looking on my natural nails. I am not really in favor of fake nails. I might just do a nutral looking color or white tips, cant decide yet!
