Neutral nails always look super chic and far from boring. They are the perfect pairing almost any colour of dress. If you want a statement neutral opt for a sharp white. It's clean yet striking and extra beautiful against dark or swarthy skin tones.
Probably the most frequently seen statement wedding nail colour we see are pinks and reds. Ranging from baby pink that's verging on a neutral right through fuchsia into the realms of deep, dark vampy red nails. We love them all. Also the perfect accompaniment to a bold lip.
