HOW TO GET THE SHAPE FOR YOU

Be guided by the shape of your nail bed. For example, if you have short and slim fingers with a narrow nail bed, then the experts recommend almond-shaped nails as this shape will create the illusion of extra length. For short wider fingers, coffin, ballerina or stiletto nails are most flatterying.

For the lucky individuals with long and slim fingers, any shape is your friend! However, if you want that extra edge, then square shapes will do exactly that.

You won't need to grow your nails long, just make sure your hands are well kept as the length can be corrected in the salon. Instead, focus on getting them stronger by investing in nail strengthener, this encourages the formation of keratin, binds the layers of the nail together and seals the nail to retain moisture. Ideally, you want your healthy nails to last post-wedding too!

Sticking to gel nails will ensure longevity without compromising the condition of your nails.

Put together a mood board on Pinterest or Instagram to show your nail artist what kind of vibe you're looking for, book in a few trial sessions months in advance.
