If social distancing and self-quarantining have forced you indoors, for the time being, we're here to tell you about your new favorite thing! Olive & June—the innovative California company that has perfected the art of the at-home mani—is launching a bridal collection so killer ring selfies don't have to be sacrificed.
The Perfect Match is a "polish discovery set" designed to help brides (and even grooms!) find their perfect wedding day shade without stepping foot in a nail salon. The box, which features 10 of the brand's best-selling bridal shades and a topcoat, is basically a personal color consultation with Sarah Gibson Tuttle, Olive & June founder and nail guru, delivered right to your door. She even developed a bridal quiz on their website to help you find the perfect shade!
It’s such a special experience to pick out polish for your wedding and all the important wedding-related events.
"I love picking people’s polish colors generally but nothing gives me even more joy than picking a bridal mani," Tuttle tells Brides. "When we got all these questions from our community and in real life of which color [they should wear on their] big day, it became 'Let's do a discovery set so that women can literally test this out at home.' They don’t need me sitting there with them. They can see how they like it and they can do it on their own because ultimately most people can’t get to Olive & June and we want to give that experience to them. It’s such a special experience to pick out polish for your wedding and all the important wedding-related events."
Meet the Expert
The 10 colors range from bold, bright whites to sheer, soft neutrals, all crafted to make your engagement ring pop and give you confidence down the aisle. Plus, all of the shades are named after fierce and fashionable females—an Olive & June staple! "Choosing this wedding manicure is such a daunting experience for the brides that we’ve worked with," shares Tuttle. "Our job is to make this [decision] easier and more fun. Nails should always make you feel beautiful and put together."
And while the set features more traditional bridal tones, Tuttle knows that "every bride is so unique and wants her own look." After all, she opted for a deep navy manicure for her trip down the aisle, adding, "Manicures are such a moment of self-expression."
Manicures make men and women feel powerful, complete, put together, ready to take on the world, beautiful, worthy, wild, magnetic.
The collection isn't solely for the moment you say "I do" either. You can find the perfect shade for your engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette party, and even everyday ring selfies in this collection. "Manicures make men and women feel powerful, complete, put together, ready to take on the world, beautiful, worthy, wild, magnetic," Tuttle says.
