What is the ultimate accessory for every wedding this season? Eye-catching nails and a perfectly polished pedi to match, of course. We've been pouring over the must-try gel nail trends for 2023 to pull together all the wedding nails inspo you could possibly need. Settle in for a whistle-stop journey through the wedding nails you need to know about and say yes to gorgeous sets that dazzle from day to night!
This year's wedding inspo is rooted in sublime subtlety, pops of colour and innovative textures. It's time to master the lace-inspired nail art and elevate wedding guest nails with on-trend copper tones. Nail glow-ups are made easy this season with The GelBottle.
The only plus one you'll need
The flash photography trend has been taking over our TikTok feeds… and lighting up our nails in the process. If your client is keen to replicate this trend, Guest List will light up any set with a flash. We'll leave the artistic license up to you.
Whether your clients have booked in for a dazzling manicure ahead of their upcoming nuptials or spotted a wedding guest-ready set on their For You page, this light-up polish is a must for your collection. Boasting a diamond-dusted taupe hue and a 3D-esque effect, this long-lasting gel polish is sure to mesmerise both on and off the dancefloor.
A bouquet of colour
Perhaps your bride tribes are keen to try a colour co-ord… well then, it's a good thing colour is in this year! We're seeing bridal parties opting for rich rust tones, delicate sage green hues and timeless blush pink colourways… what would make a more perfect match than a coordinated set of gel nails?
If terracotta-toned bridesmaid dresses are the colour scheme, why not try a burnt orange mani to match with Atelier and Copper Glow? Or perhaps a more subtle pop of colour with a micro French and 19 BIAB™ thrown into the mix? Echo visions of sage green with a Crest Sage-soaked mani or strike a perfect pink balance with a blush-toned dress and Chiffon on the nails.
If your clients are after a fail-safe set, you can be confident in reaching for muted earth tones and neat neutrals. Effortlessly chic and guaranteed to elevate every look, these natural shades work for every occasion — from bohemian garden weddings to lavish affairs in country homes. Keep it clean and classy with Au Naturel; the perfect cool-toned nude, or try coating your client's nails in Earthgrey's soft grey hue, an ever-dependable versatile shade.
While we know some trends come and go, the now iconic Glazed Doughnut mani is destined to be one that stands the test of time. Think of this as natural nails with a little extra 'oomph'. Designed by celebrity nail artist Zola Ganzorigt for Hailey Bieber, this glistening look can be easily created with a coat of Apple Blossom and Extreme Shine Top Coat for a long-lasting mani that will turn heads. For a more minimal manicure, the Glazed Doughnut's sister trend — Lipgloss Nails — swaps out the chrome shimmer for a pink-tinted glossy finish. This immaculate set can be achieved with Oyster and Gloss, and of course, your ultra-shiny top coat.
A twist on timeless
Dare to create something different and give your clients a look that will truly make an impact. Every bride that walks through your doors will surely fall for this timeless classic... the lace-tipped French. It's easy to see why this artistic twist on the classic bridal fabric is an instant 'I do'. This classic look can be created using our Daisy Studio Gel™, Studio Acrylic Powder and Daisy and Dune Gel Polishes... finished, of course, with a sweep of the Matte Top Coat. We think you'd struggle to find a bride-to-be who doesn't instantly swoon over a set of these fabulous French tips.
