Wedding Wednesday - Silk & Lace Bridal Manicure

Hello lovelies!

Wedding season is in full swing again! And it so happens that I was approached by a rep from and asked to do some wedding manicures, possibly based on their wedding and bridesmaid dresses. So I looked and looked and got a lot of inspiration and this is one of the results:

Want to know what I was inspired by? This:

I love this dress. It's so simple, but the lace on the bottom makes it princess-like. I love it. A lot. 

So I started off with a polish that I specifically bought for wedding purposes, although it was not necessarily meant to be that. It is "Swans Upon A Time", by Delush Polish. Here are swatches, but there was no sunlight yet, so forgive me:

This is three coats with top coat. Application was dreamy and it dried fast. It is a white crelly with a red/pinkish shimmer that sparkles in the sun. It was hard to capture on camera, because it is still subtle, but you can see it best in the macros. I applied top coat and after it had dried properly, I stamped over it with Laushine white stamping polish and BP-L016, which I also used yesterday. I did not apply top coat, to keep the stamping matte, as is the lace.

Yeah, I couldn choose and also, I wanted you to see the manis in different lighting. So I'm just going to leave some more pics, I really really had a difficulty with making choices!

So what do you think? Would you wear this to your wedding? Can you see in my manicure that I drew inspiration from that dress? 


  1. GAH! These are beautiful! I love these!!

  2. I love the delicacy of this look, so mesmerizing!

  3. I saw this on Facebook yesterday and I was like "SHUT UP!" because I just love how soft and gorgeous these are!

  4. This is absolutely beautiful. I applaud your photography skills at being able to capture this on film. I always have the hardest time with that when my design is as subtle as this.

  5. I love this super subtle stamping!! And that pattern you picked is amazing!

  6. Probably one of the best wedding mani's I've seen! Delicate, original and so pretty!

  7. Oooooh my gooooodnessss that's so pretty!! I'd wear it to somebody's wedding. lol Or perhaps a fancy tea party. ^_^

  8. Swans Upon A Time is so freaking amazing. Your swatches and nail art make me NEEED it!!!
