Looking for a mani that's equal parts classic and glam? "The gold flames atop a crisp white has been super popular among brides and bridal parties. The metallic ribbons add elegance and interest to fingertips, but are still subtle," says Eleanor Langston, CEO of Paintbox.

For brides who want to add a little sparkle to their winter wedding, this galaxy mani is out of this world. To recreate this dazzling design, start with a sheer nude base, then lightly sponge on silver and iridescent polishes to create the wispy galactic look.

We love a classic mani with a little twist. "Wedding nails should celebrate that it's such a special day, but also the individuality of the bride. This bare mani — that we did for Lauren Conrad — has a hint of silver at the base," says Sarah Gibson Tuttle, founder and CEO of Olive & June.
This mani makes us feel like we're walking in a winter wonderland. A mix of snowflakes and icy silver glitter makes this a beautiful and seasonal choice for your big day.
