Use hand and/or nail moisturizers at least twice daily after washing your hands with mild hand soap. Before going to bed, apply cuticle oil on your nails. These beauty regiments prevent your nails and surrounding skin from drying out. Your nails and skin will not only look suppler, but these protective steps will prevent nail cracks or breakages.

  • A bottle of the nail colour used in your bridal manicure for touch-ups.
  • For those using artificial nails, always be prepared with an extra pair of nails with the same design and nail glue.

Designs Matter

Additional Tips

Avoid soaking your nails too long prior to your wedding day or during your honeymoon. If soaked or left wet for long period of time, the shape of your nail will be slightly bent, and this may damage your manicure. Gently and carefully pat your hands with a fluffy towel after washing until they are completely dry. For the same reason, also refrain from using strong soaps or chemical products on your hands.
