Now that you're all set for your nail spa party, here are manicure ideas you can try with the rest of the bridesmaids:
If you think the French tip manicure is too mainstream, try its gradient version.
Garden weddings call for tiny flower nail art.
A nude mani can look extra modern with fine lines painted over each nail.
Match your manicure with the wedding's color motif, and make things more interesting by doing the IG-famous ombré nail trend.
A December wedding calls for a minimalist glitter mani.
Go twinning with your bouquet!
The marble-inspired mani is a classic.
The pink version is timeless, too. Plus, it resembles the pretty stone, rose quartz.
The ultimate minimalist manicure: Buffed and polished tips and random gold dots on the accent nail.
Your digits will look feminine and glam with a pink mani with a gold accent.
