31 Elegant Wedding Nail Art Designs

By  | 

When it comes to your big day, your wedding day, the little details really do matter and one of the most important little details is going to be your nails. Although your hands or, to be more specific, your nails are probably the very last thing on your mind when you’re planning your big day, remember the photos that are likely to contain your hands… The ring shot, the signing of the book shot, the lovingly holding hands shot, the drinking champagne shot… Your nails are important.

So, to get things right, let’s start with these delights – 31 elegant wedding nail art designs for any kind of wedding:

1. Elegant Design for Long Nails

We’ll start with the basics, nudes are the easiest wedding day nails to have because they quite literally go with everything. It doesn’t matter whether your bridesmaids are wearing pink, blue or fluorescent orange, nude nails will always match.

If all nude is just a little too nude for you, these gem embellishments really add a special extra something. Not too much, not too little, just right…

And absolutely perfect for photos!

2. Cute Bride & Groom Design

You have a bride and groom on the cake so why not have a bride and groom on your nails? It just makes perfect sense to us!

This works because there’s just the one featured ‘groom’ nail on each hand. You could even just have the one – your ring finger – if you wanted to give it that little extra special meaning. It’s down to you… It is YOUR big day after all.

3. Gold Glitter French Tip

Remember when we said that nude nails were perfect? This is another reason why. If you want elegant wedding nails, nude nails make for the perfect base.

We have a lot of love for the gold detailing adding to the very tips of these nails, and those gem decals help to make the design pop for all the right reasons.

4. Heart Tips

Your wedding day is a day of love and we absolutely, positively love these heart-tipped nails. The look has been accentuated with those heart-shaped white tips, and the embellishment outline is a heart too.

Your wedding day is meant to be all about love and hearts so these elegant wedding nails are just perfect!

5. Nude French Tip Design

Moving on from the nude nail (again!), these have been jazzed up in another simple way. Instead of opting for heart-shaped tips, why not try these simple square tips? It’s a french manicure but with those decal additions, it’s a french manicure with a difference.

The simplest changes can often make the biggest difference and just by changing the shape of the nail, you could create an entirely different look.

6. Classic French Tip + Rhinestone Accent Nail

Why not opt for a classic white French tip on your wedding day? If it’s elegant wedding nail art designs you’re looking for, look no further. This look solves all your problems.

Nail extensions can be clumsy for those who aren’t used to them but these simple white tips work on even short nails. Just remember that you’ll need your hands for a few things on your wedding day, ring accepting and champagne-drinking just being two of them. If you don’t feel comfortable with long extensions, don’t have them. Do what you want. It’s your day.

7. French Tip + White Accent Nail with Pearls

Having a featured nail is very in-trend right now and we love these French tip with white accent nails with pearls. It’s a simple addition to just one nail but one that makes a big impact. Didn’t we tell you it was all about the little things? Well, this look proves it… Again.

Although it all looks very intricate, you can actually buy nail embellishments already in that shape so all you need to do is peel off and stick on. Just make sure you use a decent glue and when you’re sure it’s all dry, add some more glue to the edges with a toothpick. Once dry again, give the entire nail a quick coat with clear nail polish/top coat to keep it in check and make the gems look super shiny for all those photos.

8. Wedding Toe Nail Design

Just because you don’t have your toes on show doesn’t mean they don’t deserve the wedding day treatment. Give your piggies a pamper and let your toenails get in on the getting-hitched action.

The look is simple French manicure but instead of a nude base, a pinkie one has been chosen to give the look a more pastel feel. It’s a softer look and although makes the nails more obvious, does so in a very subtle way.

9. Peach & Dark Gold Design

If you don’t want to go for nude nails, but you don’t really want to go for a bright one either, peach nails are perfect. Do you know what works well with peach? Gold, that’s what. Hence these beautiful elegant wedding nail art designs – peach and dark gold design.

You could go for just the one feature nail, or have them all done slightly differently. It’s up to you, we can’t decide which ones we prefer. We love those featured nails with embellishments. Which one is your favorite?

10. Pink Heart Design

This is a very clever way of using a nail design called negative space. It’s basically using the nude, unpainted base of the nail as the feature design. Painted around a template rather than using a stencil, if that makes sense?

The other nail is not negative space but instead has been painted a shiny silver to accentuate that bling. Perfect ring finger nails if you ask us.
