Best Nude Polishes for Your Wedding Day
Decisions, decisions. When it comes to planning your wedding day, there are so many choices and so many options. What dress and makeup to wear? What’s the appropriate hairstyle to show off your glow and bridal veil? If you’re the kind of meticulous bride who makes a fuss over every single detail, then undoubtedly, your nails will be just another thing added to your lengthy to-do list. Since your hands will be the focal point of the ceremony and your wedding photos, not just any old color will do. Neutral colors tend to complement most gowns, rings, bouquets, and skin tones. It’s no wonder 50 shades of nudes have been dominating social media feeds, with the barely-there color currently trending in hair, makeup, and polishes. But these lighter tones aren’t the same lacquers Mama used to wear. From matte textures to peachy undertones, there’s a modern, au naturel shade to suit every taste and style. For a little mani inspo before the big day, turn to these nail picks, which run the gamut in tone and price point. Nothing in this collection is more than $20, so you can really show off those digits and the fact that he put a ring on it.
