Pimp Your Nails 29.11.2012

There are pretty manicures and then there are crazy pretty manicures. What we’re showing you today falls into the latter category.

Realistically not every bride and her posse can rock these looks. Nor does every bride and her maids want to, but for those that wish to veer away from the standard French manicure, you’re in for a visual treat.

These are a few of our favourite ways to switch things up in the nail department.

Wedding Accessories By Jannie Baltzer 22.11.2011

What lovely creations from Jannie Baltzer!

This Danish fashion designer is a self-confessed sucker for weddings. Having graduated from the Scandinavian Academy of International Fashion and Design in Copenhagen, Jannie then received an honorary prize from Her Royal Highness Princess Benedikte for the most creative fashion collection in the country.

Her wedding inspiration comes from eras past: in particular the early 1900s’ French Bohemianism, and the Art Deco movement and the 1920s celebrity glamour of Hollywood. Handcrafted from her studio in Copenhagen, Jannie’s headpieces are made from such luxurious materials as French and Edwardian lace, silk, and soft chiffon.

Soft Shades by Opi 04.11.2011

If you want to look ultra feminine on your wedding day, why not complete your look with a pretty pastel shade from Opi?

If you prefer to wear a fun and bold colour such as red or purple, there is, of course, nothing wrong with this, as it is your personal choice. But most brides today want the timeless and elegant feel of soft pinks, nudes, off-whites, and other neutrals. These colours are also low-maintenance since the chips and peeling don’t show as much, and if you choose to apply them yourself at home, the tiny mistakes you make won’t be too visible either.

Fortunately, Opi has given wedding inspiration to brides who want just a peek of soft, romantic colour on their nails. During June and July, Opi releases more neutral and pastel colours from the Soft Shades Collection to add to their Fairy Tale Bridal Collection. Check out the Soft Shades colour selection from Opi…

Just a few of our favorites…

1. At First Sight – A light peachy brown

2. Second Honeymoon – a sweet baby pink

3. Kyoto Pearl – a subtle grey with just a hint of lavender

4. Kiss on the Chic – a soft yet vibrant salmon

Remember to schedule your mani and pedi a day before the big day, so they still look nice and fresh when you’re all done up. And don’t forget to stash a bottle of an Opi Soft Shade polish in your beauty kit—you never know when an emergency will strike at the reception or during the honeymoon!

Opi Soft Shade colours are available at beauty retailers everywhere. If you’re having trouble looking for a particular colour at your local department store or drugstore, check out online beauty stores or eBay. And for more wedding inspiration on romantic and sophisticated colour palettes, visit the Opi website.
