Top manicure tips from Essie

group shotHere are some tips on having close to perfect nails on your wedding day:

Start experimenting with nail colour at least one month before your wedding day.  Try layering complimentary shades starting with whites and pinks, then moving onto bolder colours to determine what type of essie bride you will be.  Whether you choose one perfect shade or two that are better together, you will end up with your perfect hue!


Treat yourself to regular manicures and pedicures two months before your wedding day.  This will help to ensure that your hands and nail beds are in perfect health and ready for their close up!


  What are your tips for achieving a perfect manicure every time?

Start with a clean nail. Choose the Essie basecoat that suits your nail type and apply. Do not underestimate the power of the base coat – it prevents dark polishes from staining the nail and can help fortify nails, too. Then apply two coats of essie polish, waiting two minutes in between drying time. Finish with the Essie top coat of your choice.
