On your wedding day, all eyes are admiring you! From your hair, down to your shoes, people will be gawking at your outfit and accessories throughout the whole jamboree. You don’t want your nails to be the only part of your attire that doesn’t get the special treatment, right? 

So, here are 10 gorgeous wedding nail art ideas for brides in 2022. 

Classic Cream

If you’re not someone who typically decorates their nails, choosing a nail design can be a tough decision. You might want to go with something simple and classic, like a soft pink or a creamy white. The great thing about this type of design is that it can go with almost anything and won’t ruin your overall theme and aesthetic. Don’t complicate things for yourself. Choose a simple milky texture to complete your wedding day ensemble.

Elegant Rose Gold

Rose gold is a greatly fashionable colour that many people have come to love and enjoy in the recent past. It’s a colour that is not only used for clothing and accessories but also for everyday appliances and gadgets. It should be no surprise that it’s also a favourite colour when it comes to wedding nail art. 

You can either go with a full-face rose gold manicure or, if a full-face is too much, you can choose to only paint over the outlines of your nails. 

Sparkling French Tips

Some brides prefer to wear a design with a little more glamour. If you’re one of those brides, then choosing a rhinestone French tip design is something you should look into. It’s not as flamboyant as other rhinestone nail art, as it only covers the tips of your fingers. Plus, it’s an elegant look that you can pair with your lovely wedding gown. 

The Minimalist

In most cases, it can be tough to find a nail polish color that complements your engagement ring or wedding ring. This is where a minimalist design comes in handy. A simple white or bridal blush pink coat on your nails should be enough to balance out your whole outfit during your wedding day. 

Half-Moon Nails

This wedding nail art idea is for brides who are looking for a design that’s not too complex but also not that easy to come by. Half-moon nails are an intricate but simple design that combines both classic and modern mediums. To achieve this design, you have to paint over the rounded shadow at the base of your fingernail, leaving the rest of your nails untouched. 

However, you can also use two colours for your nails, one for the rounded at the bottom of your nail and another for the rest of the areas. 

Edgy Black

Nobody said brides were limited to light, creamy colours during their wedding day. If you’re an alternative bride and want to show the rest of your guests your edgier side, wearing a set of bold black nails is a great idea. There are a lot of ways you can go with a black manicure: shiny or matte, with rounded tips or square tips. 

Subtle Patterns on Neutrals

So, you’ve decided on a neutral colour for your wedding nail art, but you’re worried it might not stand out enough during your wedding reception? Neutral colours don’t have to be so neutral on your nails. There is a subtle, sexy way you can make them stand out without painting over a coat of flamboyant colours on them. 

Using subtle patterns and designs like the beloved sweater print on your nails is a great way to spice up your neutral nail polish. You can also get other prints, from flowers to paw prints — whatever floats your boat.

The Naked Look

Getting nail art done for your wedding isn’t a requirement for every bride. So, if you don’t feel like getting anything, feel free to go with your naked nails to your wedding. Schedule an appointment with your manicurist and have your nails buffed and shaped for your big day. If you feel it is a little too dull, you can ask your manicurist to paint a coat of clear polish over your nails.  

Dynamic Red

Another colour that you don’t often see at weddings is red. If your goal is to stand out during your special day, getting a hand of red nail polish may be just the thing to capture your guests’ attention. Look for a fiery scarlet or deep burgundy for a classic, sophisticated wedding look. 

Dazzling Silver

There’s a reason why so many people love silver — it’s a flexible and elegant colour that goes well with almost any colour in the wheel. If you want to show off your new silver wedding band or engagement ring, getting a simple silver manicure is a great idea. Choose one with a slight wash of glitter, so, it sparkles when the light catches it. 

Getting married is a big milestone for every bride to experience. Besides being an exciting time in their life, it can also be one of the most nerve-wracking events to plan. Make yourself feel extra special by getting simple wedding nail art done for your special day. You are sure to smile and show off a bit with it!

Were your nails done on your big day? What colours did you choose?

PS: Yes, I know that most of us are married now, but what stops us from taking ideas from these amazing nail art options, right?

    15 years ago I was asked to write an article on Nail Art. I didn’t know anyone who could do it. I did it on my nails and took a picture. These patterns look great. I like the french manicure and the natural one. Brides would opt for red I guess.

  24. Nail Art has come a long way, hasn’t it! Loved all of them, the glitter adds to wedding outfits. The Rose Gold and the Silver would be my picks though.

  25. Swati Mathur says:

    OMG.. All of them are stunning. I haven’t done nail art yet but would love to. While reading your post I was like this is good then looking at next it was like this is better.. Haha. But for wedding I would have gone for dynamic red for sure as my bridal wear was red.

  26. I liked the Naked look adn the classic one. thanks for the suggestions
