While most brides won’t go for a nail colour trial for their big day, they will likely bring in their whole party for prenuptial manis and pedis. OPI brand ambassador Alicia Torello has a few tips for nailing the details.
1) “If your client has a large group, recommend that she set up her bridal party’s appointments about four months in advance.”
2) “Wedding nail art is still not as common because there’s always a lot going on, but if your client is thinking of nail art, keep it chic with classics like a half-moon mani. When done right, glitter can also be amazing, using a soft pink or nude and fading glitter from the tip down to the cuticle.”
3) If your bride is going on her honeymoon right away, recommend that she get a gel polish so that it’s long-lasting without any fuss. If gel isn’t an option, recommend OPI Infinite Shine, which has a glossy finish and lasts up to 10 days.”
To keep it classic, Torello recommends Bubble Bath (pictured, left), Makes Men Blush or Second Honeymoon. If your bride is a bit more adventurous, suggest a deep burgundy or berry, like Got the Blues for Red or In the Cable Car-Pool Lane (pictured, right).
Hand and nail care are also essential. Keeping cuticles trimmed and hands moisturized are especially important for wedding photos, which are likely to feature close-up shots of your client’s hands.
