Bello says that you’ll be in good company if you choose to create and paint your own wedding day nail look too. “DIY manis are on the rise thanks to their affordability and ease of use.

Before you begin painting your chosen design, Bello advises that you prepare your nails so it will last as long as possible. She says: “As with any mani, prep is key. Begin by sanitising and prepping your nails with the Mylee 2-in-1 Nail Prep & Wipe – a small, but important step for a lasting manicure. Follow that up with Mylee’s Base Coat , which protects your natural nails, and provides a long-lasting base. You’ll need Mylee’s Pro LED Curing Lamp to flash cure each coat of MyGel polish. Of course, you will need to secure and cure your mani with Mylee’s Top Coat.”

What Are Your Top Mani Trends For SS24 Brides?

"When choosing your nails it's best to go for a manicure that's timeless but also matches the wedding and your aesthetic - whether that's the wedding colour theme, your dress or the setting,” advises Bello. Her hot picks for Spring/Summer 2024 are:

Glazed Peach

"The glazed doughnut trend is perfect for a wedding because the iridescence offers a beautiful and elegant finish to any shade. The beauty of this look is that it gives a sheen and diffuses the shade to create a sophisticated offering. For this look I suggest picking a shade like Mylee Wedding Night, or Mylee You're A Peach and topping with the Mylee Iridescent No Wipe Top Coat. The result, a delicious shade that's timeless."

"For extra 'je nais se quois' try this update on the iconic French style. This look adds a parallel line underneath the tip for a sleek but interesting take on the classic manicure. Using Light Pink Builder Gel for strong nails throughout the day and then simply a line at the tip with Break The Ice as you normally would for a French manicure and then where your nail tip ends."

Blushed Floral

"Florals for spring may not be ground-breaking, but they are a gorgeous nod to all things bridal and this blushed version is a beautiful way to add some a pop of colour to nails. To create this sweet and joyful nail look you can add length with Fix n Flash in Long Coffin, Blush Builder Gel, Break The Ice and the beautiful blush shade, Candy Girl. Top tip: Although blush is beautiful you can even opt for a shade that matches your bouquet."

Clean Girl

"The clean girl trend celebrates the simplicity of a natural nail. This is perfect for those brides or those in the bridal party that want healthy looking nails that are understated. The key is to keep nails neatly filed and use the Blush Builder Gel for healthy and strong nails"

Are ivory and nude nails still popular for brides?

“Ivory and nude nails are both classics for a reason, and very popular choices. However, brides today tend to lean towards a more modern twist when it comes to their mani. This includes subtle glitters and barely-there pinks found in the Unveiled collection. It adds that little ‘extra’ sparkle that some brides are looking for.”

How can I achieve the perfect DIY bridal mani at-home?

Bello’s top three tips for the perfect DIY mani are:

  • “I’d highly recommend perfecting your prep. This includes buffing, filing, cleaning and cuticle work.”
  • “Take your time. Patience is key for a perfect mani. Correct any errors with the Mylee Edit>Undo Corrector Pen.”
  • “Practice, practice, practice! Chances are, you may not get it perfect first time around. But the more you do your nails, the better you’ll be!”
