DON’T wait until the last-minute to visit a salon you’re not familiar with. Plan ahead and find a reputable nail professional that is able to customize your service. A educated nail professional will be able to recommend the correct service for your nail type, lifestyle and commitment level, as well as recommend the perfect style and shade that compliments your entire beauty look. has a locator to help find trained nail professionals in your area!

DON’T be afraid to be bold and non-traditional in your nail style and color! The traditional French Manicure is predictable and dated. Today’s modern brides are wearing colors and art styles that complement their personal style. More chic than a French is an opaque natural shade that matches skin tone with a slight shimmer.

DON”T wear long nail enhancements if you’re not used to the length and style. You will feel clumsy and unnatural. Choose a length and style that suits your activity and lifestyle.

DO plan a few months ahead so you can find a salon that you are comfortable with and can play with colors and styles that you want to wear for your special day. The last thing you want is to get a manicure the morning of your big day and have to worry about wet nails that you may not even like!

DO something even if you never get a mani and pedi; this special day is the perfect excuse to indulge! After all, your hands and nails will be on display all day showing off your new ring, so make sure they are camera ready.

DO try a CND Shellac manicure. With 14 day wear, no chipping and zero dry time, it’s a perfect service for a wedding mani because you can get the mani 3-4 days before the big day, thus freeing up your time for other important details (and it will last until you get home form the honeymoon)!
