As Leah Yari, CEO and Co-Founder of the chic non-toxic polish brand and nail salon CГґte, says вЂњNothing complements your new bling better than the perfect manicureвЂќ. For the contemporary, she suggests CГґte's No.122, "a blend of rich nude tones for a clean, polished look.вЂќ
For the classic bride, вЂњWe love how the sheer pink tones of No.10 are clean, feminine, and just the right amount of color without grabbing too much of the spotlight,вЂќ Yari adds. And for the bride who is looking to draw a little extra attention to her hands, Yari recommends having your nail hue serve as your something blue with the pretty and powdery CГґte No.118.02 of 07

Jin Soon Choi, iconic nail guru and owner of JINsoon Hand & Foot Spas in New York City and polish brand JINsoon, says that your personality should play a part in picking your perfect wedding-day shade.
For the brides that have bubbly and outgoing personalities, Choi says to have fun-вЂњbut within wedding day boundaries.вЂќ She suggests trying вЂњfun, colorful confettis like JINsoon Fab or JINsoon Dotty because they can be used alone or paired with sheers like JINsoon Dew, Muse or Pixie, which will make your nails colorful without upstaging your wedding day look.вЂќ
For brides that are more reserved, Choi explains that вЂњangelic, fairy dust shadesвЂќ would be perfect for their wedding day. Choi's favorite combination is JINsoon Dew and JINsoon Mist. "They reflect the depth and introspective nature of the person wearing them and are delicate, lace-like, and the perfect topping of a wedding day ensemble,вЂќ she explains.
For the easy-going bride, Choi says to go for a classic shade, вЂњlike a classic nude or a light pink like JINsoon Pinky or JINsoon Muse.вЂќ Choi also notes that for a more experimental hue, she loves the idea of coral or hot red. Try JINsoon Winky or JINsoon Vanity for an unexpected pop of color. As Choi explains, вЂњThese shades conform to wedding-day expectations while being glamorous, like a classic Hollywood star look.вЂќ03 of 07

Celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunders James (her clients include Kate Beckinsale and Mandy Moore) encourages brides to take inspiration from their actual wedding for their bridal mani. вЂњI like to suggest that my brides use the color theme of their wedding to inspire their nail shade," says Saunders. "For example, flowers are an excellent guide. Are they neutral, pink, bright?вЂќ
Next, "Choose between a sheer or opaque formula,вЂќ instructs Saunders. "Both are trending, so you'll be in fashion-but keep in mind that sheers are more soft and have less pigment, while opaques feel modern and have more depth,вЂќ she says.
Saunders's favorite opaque shades are in Essie's Serene Slate collection: Mind-Full Meditation, an opaque nude beige; Press Pause, a light neutral dove gray; and Wire-Less Is More, a soft, dusky rose.
Her favorite sheers hail from Essie's Gel Couture Sheer Silhouettes: Gossamer Garments, a sheer pink tint; and Sheer Silhouette, a super sheer beige.04 of 07

For celebrity manicurist and nail brand queen Deborah Lippmann, the perfect wedding mani, вЂњis one that is kept simple and clean, with a nude shade or a pretty pink; something that highlights the beauty of your engagement ring and gown.вЂќ
For brides that are going for a minimalistic nail look, вЂњI would recommend Fashion, Love At First Sight, Delicate, and Brand New Day,вЂќ says Lippmann.
For brides that favor bold hues, Lippmann says they should consider a rose gold shimmer like Stargasm or a classic red like My Old Flame. Lippmann adds, вЂњNails can also be a great way to incorporate your something blue, in which case Above the Clouds (a full coverage powder blue shimmer) would be perfect. Especially for a beach wedding!вЂќ05 of 07

Kristin Pulaski, owner of Williamsburg hot spot Paintbucket, prefers something pink with subtle pop. вЂќBubble Bath by OPI, I recently wore it to my sister's wedding with a small gold stud on each nail and I couldn't believe the amount of compliments I received. It's a perfect neutral hue with the most delicate hint of pink and gives major ethereal vibes,вЂќ explains Pulaski. For brides that love a hint of shimmer, Pulaski also adores Smith & Cult Sugarette. "It is the most gorgeous pearly, iridescent shade of white-but not too white.вЂќ
