When it comes to the wedding day, most brides focus most of their attention to the wedding dress, hair, and makeup.

And rightfully so.

But as with everything else in life, the last final touches are just as important.

Just think of this scenario.

You have your dream come true wedding dress, you look like a princess thanks to hair and makeup, but your nails are not done.

That spells trouble.

And that is one trouble you will wish would have avoided.

The final touch on your wedding day is beautiful nails.

For that, we have several ideas you can look at.

The perfect wedding manicure thanks to that lace tying perfectly with your lace dress. Most of the nail designs here will be white. But even a white design needs something more. In this case, that is the ombre effect and the lace.

2. V Tipped With Dotted Lines
