“Glitter is becoming a real trend," says Far. "Either a gold or silver glitter tip or a glitter half moon with a nude or beige-colored nail. It might sound crazy, but it can actually be done in a really subtle, classy way. It adds a dash of fun to the whole wedding traditional and is really pretty. We've also been seeing glitter additions on a traditional french manicure—a line of glitter over the white tip or a line of glitter above the white tip.”
“Either a square with rounded edges or round shape are our most popular right now,” says Far.

“Most traditional brides stick to a pale pink or nude color. It looks classic and a bit understated but stands out because it’s so clean and polished. Bolder brides will do a red or pink, but it’s still mostly lighter colors and traditional french manicures that are the most popular.”
