by Rebecca O'Keeffe
07th Apr 2016

On her wedding day, a bride can use a manicure as a way to really show off her personality.?Whether it’s a crazy colour or funky nail art, Emma Percival from Emma’s Powder Room has got you covered.

Artistic delights

We love this?beautiful, modern twist on an otherwise natural nail! Perfect for a bride who wants something a little different.

Romantic red

We cannot deny that red is the colour of love, and we LOVE this romantic manicure. Emma tells us ‘so many brides are going for a red nail for the big day. It is such a fun pop of colour, while still remaining understated.’

That something blue

‘I have found that quite a few brides opt for an icy blue shade for their wedding day. It incorporates the something blue tradition, and looks fantastic in photographs!’

Classic French

‘You just cannot go wrong with a classic French manicure. I have found that it is the most popular choice amongst my bridal clients.’


All that glitters

Emma says, ‘who doesn’t love a bit of glitter for a special occasion? This kind of manicure is simple, yet really adds sparkle to your overall look.’ We could not agree more, the more glitter the better right?!
