Okay, I have now bought 8 different sheer/pale/nude pink nail polishes and none of them are right. Lol. They’re all either TOO bright (I like it, just not for the wedding) or too sheer (I hate when I can still see my nail bed through the polish) or too much of a cool/lavender pink.
The thing is my dress is pink, so it either needs to match or be really different, but still coordinate. My IDEAL nail polish is a soft, opaque, milky, warm pink. I want it to be a shade or two lighter than my skin, but not a bright white either.
Anyone know a specific nail polish they think would work well? Preferably by OPI or Essie because they’re my favorites, but I’m open to suggestions. I’m also open to non-pink colors if you think I should go outside the box. : )

Essie van d’go
Essie – a Crewed Interest
Essie’s ballet slipper may work too. If you don’t like Essie for some reason, I’d be glad to give you more suggestions =)

@kafir: I actually have Essie ballet slippers! It’s too sheer for me though. I like the other two you posted though!

I have OPI “Princesses Rule” and after a couple of coats it is just stunning, it’s a shimmery pink that just catches the light….really lovely.

I think a more nude pink so it doesn’t take away from the ring. Like Tie the Knot

Essie “Mademoiselle” is my go-to very pale, sheer pink. Very subtle, but beautiful!

I think a lovely simple french manicure would match nicely.

No advice on nail polish I just wanted to say I really really really love your dress!

I agree with aussiebee…Princess rule is amazing! Even if you find a pink that is too sheer, paint a couple coats of princess rule on it and it;s a goreous shimmery pink and it would look gorgeous with your dress and ring!

@JM1217: That’s really cute, but I guess I’m afraid that with a pink dress and ring and curly hair with flowers in it, a sparkly nail polish pushes me firmly over the line into “little girl playing dress-up” territory. Haha. (Like the nail polish is the obvious part of my whole ensemble….)

This is an Essie color as well.. not sure the name, if you’re interested I can look at home.. It’s a little streaky, but I did it quick.. and with another coat it probably wouldn’t be as sheer.. this was just a last minute job.
