Wedding Season Nail Inspo: We Can’t Get Over These 5 Velvet Nail Colours

The fast-approaching wedding season has got us obsessing over details – accessories, makeup, hair, nails – that can make or break your look. We’re directing this obsession toward the glam-dripping, luxe nail trend for the wedding season – velvet nails.

A great option for both brides and guests, velvet nails are essentially glitter-heavy with a generous coat of sheen. Created using cat eye powder or magnet-activated gel polish, it mimics the fuzzy look and feel of velvet. It works well with most festive occasions, so you can continue (with some TLC) to flaunt these for a while!

With colours and textures taking the front row in this year’s trends (hello, cat eye and chrome nails), our Instagram is bombarded with velvet nails. To help you get some inspiration and ideas, we have a list of the best velvet nail colours to flaunt this shaadi season. Let’s dive right in!

The Barbie Pink

The Barbie Pink

Not quite over the Barbie fever from earlier this year? Neither are we. These lush pink velvet nails will make for a popping detail against a pastel outfit, such as a blush pink or beige lehenga. Whether it’s your bestie’s wedding or yours, nobody can go wrong with pink. And the French tip twist makes it all the more appealing.

Sultry Purple

Purple is having a moment right now and we’re here for it. The perfect pop of colour for a saree or sharara in a neutral palette, this silver-meets-purple set of nails is serving big festive energy. With velvet nails of this shade, you can channel your inner mermaid at the next wedding function. Stack on a few minimalist rings for added drama!

Chic Champagne

Ethnic outfits tend to have silver- or gold-toned details. This is why Champagne velvet nails (with a hint of iridescence) make for the most versatile option. What’s more, you can rock these babies with virtually any colour, making it a hassle-free option for brides with multiple outfit changes.

Gimme (Sage) Green

These opulent sage green velvet nails scream fall! The colour of luxury, this set of nails is best suited for neutral as well as warm tones – like white, black, beige, brown, grey. Sage green or a similar shade is a great choice if you want something festive but do not want a common colour.

Ruby Red

One look at these sparkling red velvet nails and you will need no convincing from us! A great choice for maximalists, red is a classic colour choice for weddings. Dressed in fuzzy red, your nails are sure to make a striking statement against colours like red, white, black, and pink. A mix of romantic and fearless, red velvet nails are not for the faint of heart!

Now that you can envision what kind of nails you want to get, let’s talk about nail health. The secret behind a long-lasting, damage-free gel manicure or extension is to prep and nourish your nails. You can do this a couple of days in the run-up to your appointment, or a month in advance (recommended if you’re a bride-to-be).
