Choosing the perfect colour for your nails is usually easy. Not so when you're trying to choose the perfect winter wedding nail colour! Follow these tips and tricks to leave your nails looking good for your big day.
Blush pinks and sheer neutrals are perennially appropriate choices for a wedding day manicure
But if you want something more sensational on your fingers and toes for the winter months, go for one of the Tip Top nail polish colours - the darker, richer tones are perfect for winter.
Winter nail colour ideas that suit your nails
Choosing a colour that works with the shape of your fingers and nails will ensure they look better than ever on your wedding day.
Do you have broad nails?
Lucky you! Dark nail polish colours tend to look better on broad nails. If your nail beds are on the smaller side, stick with a lighter shade. When wearing dark colours, always use a base coat to prevent yellowing and breakage. Dark shades last longer if applied to an even surface.
Have strong healthy nails
To avoid brittle nails, don't soak them too often - nails expand when they absorb water and contract as they dry. The more this cycle repeats, the weaker nails get. Instead, keep cuticles moist by massaging with a rich nail oil like Tip Top Cuticle Oil.
Make sure your nails are well-oiled when testing colours
When testing out polish colours in the months leading up to your wedding, use a non-drying polish remover which contains oil, that won't strip nails of moisture, try Tip Top Nail Enamel Eraser with Olive Oil and vitamin E.
Match your blooms to your nails
If you're wearing colour on your fingers, make sure the shade doesn't clash with your bouquet (which can be distracting in photos). Army green polishes are a safe match for any bouquet that includes greenery. Try Tip Top Army Vibes or Super Trooper.
If you're going all out with red nail polish
Keep nails short and square to balance out the already sexy shade. A deep red like Tip Top Red Rendezvous is sexy for the winter months. Because chips are obvious with darker polish colours, you'll want to apply a protective top coat every day or two to help your manicure last throughout the honeymoon. Tip Top Toughen up Maxi Growth will help to strengthen and maintain the manicure.
In the winter months, moisturising your nails and cuticles is key!
Use a Tip Top nail strengthener like Miraculous Results, starting four to six weeks pre-wedding, to prevent splits, peels, and breaks.
