I recommend Passion it’s a sheer pink by OPI. Or Pink of Hearts 2 by OPI. Their polishes are the best and then you can even do them yourself because they dry so perfectly. Nude manicures won’t show any chips that might happen with a french. So, also, you can get it done/do it a few days ahead of time too and then not worry about it showing it’s age as quickly as a french can. I hope this helps, I am a nail polish maniac – I paint all the time. Good luck!

I’m not sure I want to do French but I don’t want anything too outragous so maybe a light sheer pink. Although I did just see Mama Mia and I think I might do my toes blue!
domesticandfabulous-I agree with you the OPI is the best. That’s mostly what I use although sometimes I use Essey and Zoya has some great colors and is about the same quality as OPI but cheaper!

Oh and good neutral champagne color by OPI ( I actually have it on now-looks great) is Cosmo Not Tonight Honey. It may be a wedding day contender.

I like OPI’s Sweeatheart or Essie’s Madamoiselle. I don’t like the look of french on my hands so am going to go with one of these shades.

I went with french on my hands and red on my toes 🙂

I went with the French manicure because it just looks classic. My manicurist suggested a little nail design on my ring finger. At first I shied away because I wanted the flawless look, but I let her do one for my trial. I know it sounds weird, but it actually turned out really cute and subtle. It was a tiny bouquet of flowers (light pastel colors) tied with my "something blue" ribbon bow. I ended up doing it for the wedding!

I’m doing a natural french, so my nails don’t look fake. The tips will be a bit more subtle, and not so stark white as some like.
However, you want to look and feel like yourself on your wedding day. Go with what feels natural for you.

I went with a pale neutral pink. I got my nails done the night before, and it was too risky to go French! I find that it’s alway so obvious when it gets chipped. If you chip pale pink it far less noticeable. 🙂 Though, I prefer the look of pink to French anyway.

If you really want French manicure, I would suggest what Miss Pinot Grigio mentioned as well. I don’t really like the look of stark white tips, so I often get an off whilte color with two coats of Essie’s Mademoiselle.
