1. Jeweled Embellishments On The Ring Finger

There is nothing more beautiful than that special moment where your husband glides the ring onto your finger. The ring, a symbol of your eternal connection, should be given the greatest honor. One popular way to honor the ring is by adding special jeweled embellishments on your ring finger. The extra adornment hints at that finger’s special job.

2. Floral Elements

Perhaps, your wedding is outside, on a beach, or in a large church. No matter where your wedding is located, there are sure to be flowers. Often flowers are incorporated into the dress, the veil, the decor, and the bouquet. So, why not incorporate floral elements into your nail design as well.

Ombre nails are a new and popular trend in wedding nails. The subtle tip fade can be done in any color or combination of hues and is a subtle and beautiful addition to any set. Brides can also layer the ombre effect and add jewels, lace, or floral embellishments on top of the faded base.

4. Crystalline Glitter

Gorgeous crystal encrusted glitter nails are a fantastic bridal phenomena. Nails like this highlight the special glitz and glamor inherit in the bridal traditions. These nails work as well at the ceremony as they do at the reception. Just imagine the sparkle when you hit that dance floor. Need we say more?

Weddings are often about tradition. They embrace the best parts of our past and our heritage while creating a new path to the future. The classic French Manicure is usually the go-to wedding nail look for many brides. But now there are so many fun ways to update this classic look for the modern bride.

6. The Lace Cuff Effect

Gorgeous nails like these mimic the intricate lace work that tapers gracefully at the cuff of a bridal gown. Lace work embellishments are a popular bridal nail trend in 2016. When choosing this sort of embellishment, you can opt for decorating every finger or make a more subtle statement and choose only a select few.

7. Henna-like Embellishments

For many brides henna is a tradition. Because of the established tradition, henna-like designs for bridal nails are increasing in popularity. These lovely nails will look great with henna covered hands or as a subtle decoration for brides of any cultural background.
