Acrylic nail designs for weddings are huge right now as you need to have to worry about your nails being too short, or having to grow them out one month in advance.

Long nails or acrylic nails are perfect for this look – the more area to work with, the more elaborate the design becomes! Avoid working on a design like this for all nails, as it looks gaudy and unflattering.

There are a few things to keep in mind while choosing and applying your wedding nail designs.

  • Whatever designs and patterns you choose, caring for your nails using proper nail care tools and equipment must be your primary concern.
  • Indulge in a professional manicure for beautiful, supple nails.
  • Soak your nails in soapy water and scrub away for a DIY manicure.
  • Remember to moisturize, as dry nails can become brittle. You don’t want broken nails on a day like this! Apply some primer or a base coat for added protection.
  • Don’t forget to let your nails breathe for a while; wait for a few days after you remove the polish to reapply another design.
  • Have a stock of fake nails for wedding and nail cleansers for emergencies – if something untoward happens, you can always wear gloves or go natural.
  • Don’t neglect your feet and toenails! Get a foot spa done or try a DIY foot spa yourself!
