On a woman’s wedding day she wants to look her absolute best. She is going to want everything to look perfect from her hair all the way to her toenails. If a woman is going to want to get her nails professionally done, she may be disappointed with the way that that they turn out. She does well to do her own bridal manicure or to get one of her friends to do the bridal manicure for her. In that way she is sure to have the manicure that she wants.
There are certain tools that a bride is going to need in order to get her nails into tip top shape. The things that she is going to need are the following: a cuticle pusher, a buffer for the nails, a nail file, nail polish base, the nail polish, and a topcoat. All these tools are essential in order to get the right look for the bride. When it comes to the nail color it all depends on what type of color that the bride is going to want. Generally a bride does not want to have any colors that are Bright and flamboyant, because they may take away from the general soft look of the bride. It is best to get colors that are neutral in tone, so that the nails look clean, classy, and pretty, but not too flashy. Many bridesmaid decide that they want to get a French manicure, that is leaving the nails neutral and painting the tips of the nails white. French manicures are beautiful for an elegant bridal Manicure.
Preparing The Nails
Before a bride gets her nails painted it is important to prepare the nails. First make sure to soak the hands in a soapy mixture. By adding a little bit of body soap to warm water. Let the hands soak in the water in order to get the cuticles soft. After the hands have been softened, next dry them and add lotion. Finally push back the cuticles so that the that the entire nail bed is exposed. Some women may choose to cut off their cuticles, and others may choose to just push them back. After the nail bed has been exposed, next use a buffer and a shiner to clean up the nail so that they look nice and neat. After the nails have been cleaned, next file the top of the nails in one direction and make them squared so that they look neat and pretty. After the nails have been buffed and cleaned, next comes the nail polish application.
Next get the nail polish base and apply that to the nail. It is best to try to use an upward motion with the polish, and to try to cover the nail with just three strokes. Next allow the nails to dry, and after the base is dried, apply the neutral nail color. After the color has been applied, next comes the topcoat. After the topcoat has been applied, allow the nails to dry.
It is really simple to be able to have a nice bridal manicure and it does not take much time. The bride wants to feel pampered, so it is nice to take time and allow the hands to soak and even maybe get a hand massage from a friend. The same rules for the manicure can be applied to the toes for a pedicure as well. A bride wants everything to be perfect from her hair to her nails and that is the reason why it is great to get a beautiful bridal manicure for the special day.
