Nail Beauty

Mani/pedi cure is now a wedding beauty prep necessity. The bride will look exceptionally well groomed with nicely treated nails especially when wedding PG (Wedding Acronym) these days like to focus the camera on other parts of your body such as hands/ feet. Your beautifully colored nails will be captured in close-up shots taken during the exchange of rings or whenever the PG feels like it.

UV Gel Manicure
Every girl dreams of a nail polish that doesn't chip. The bride is all smiles with the creation of UV gel nail polish. It could last 2 weeks as compared to regular nail polish which starts chipping after 2 to 3 days. The difference is they use a kind of gel polish and in between each coat of UV gel color layer, your fingers are placed under the UV light to set, creating a hard enamel finish. 

Caution: There is a debate that UV Gel manicure causes nerve damage. Make sure credible brand (which is tested safe) is used.
UV rays can be harmful. Alternatively use LED light which is less damaging or apply some sunscreen first.

French Manicure
This kind of manicure resembles the natural color of your fingernails. The tip of the nail is painted white and the rest of the nail is given a coat of sheer pink or light beige. If you like natural, go French!

Nail Art
Keeping the base color white or nude pink, you can choose to have 3D acrylic flowers added to your nails. With different designs of contour lines and rhinestones, your nails will sparkle elegantly on your big day. Another hype is inserting lace design on the nails. The insertion methods are either with sticker lace and sealed with a top coat or stamped on using a lace pattern with a nail stamping kit.

    I did the normal manicure for my wedding but I picked the wrong color. It was too striking bright, should have gotten a more subtle/ nude color. I love the white lace art! Didn't like the 3D too much.

    1. Hi janice-tingting,
      I had the same contemplation. I got silver colored nails for my prewed photoshoot. They didn't come out in the photos because the nail polish was too subtle. I think lacey white nails will come out great, haven't tried those actually.

  2. i don't take UV nails right now, it cost too much time

  3. Hi Le Ann, do you recommend any Nail Salon in Klang Valley? I'm totally clueless about getting a salon that would do a good job for me on my wedding day!!! Stress....~~
    Anyway, thanks for your blog. It really helps me so much in planning my own wedding! Yay! =)

    1. The recommended ones are Nail Parlour 1 Utama and HRH Nail Studio at SS2. I did mine at Nail Parlour, The Mines (I think it has been closed down). professional service and I love it.
