On your wedding day you want your hands and nails to look as good as you do. With this in mind there are few things to take into consideration.
It can take up to 6 months for your nails to grow from cuticle to nail tip so if your nails are in bad condition i.e. bitten you should really start treating them as far in advance as possible of your big day.
I would recommend the following to help with the process.
Give yourself weekly manicures to keep your nails tidy and in good condition. Good hand and nail hygiene and maintenance improves the health of your nails and will keep them growing strong.
Always apply a good quality hand cream to keep your hands moisturised and a good quality cuticle conditioning oil.
Wear nail polish as much as possible, if your nails look pretty then this can sometimes help overcome the urge to bite them.
Keep your nails at a manageable length, in some cases "less is more".
Have patience, I know this is easier said than done but if you follow my advice as above you will be on your way to having hands and nails that will look as fab as you on your wedding day.
Treatments for the Bride, Bridesmaids & Mothers In most cases I would always advise a "Shellac Manicure" for the ladies, reasons as follows.
With Shellac you can have it done a few days in advance (one thing less for you to worry about on the day)
It won't smudge, chip, flake etc and be off before its on!!
It will last the duration whilst you are on honeymoon, holiday etc.
It's your special day, whether you would like a clean French Manicure or maybe a little bit of glitter with pretty gems my aim is to achieve what you imagine for yourself and any others in your bridal party.
Treatment for the Groom, Best Man
A chance for your husband to be, best man etc to have his nails groomed. Just like the bride the groom's hands will be on show when receiving and placing of the rings and also when it comes time to cut your cake, you want his hands and nails to be nice aswell as yours.
Can you hear your fiance saying "I'm not having that done" well manicures for men are far more popular and acceptable nowadays and in a lot of cases are part of a gents regular grooming routine especially if they are prone to getting dirty fingernails and dry rough hands through manual labour.
For a man to keep his nails well maintained is a sign of good hygiene.
My advice on treatment would be a Standard Deluxe Manicure.
