With celebrity nails on the mind — Meghan Markle's clean manicure at the Baby Sussex reveal and Hilary Duff's engagement announcement featuring glossy French tips, for example — we're considering the unique importance of the occasion manicure. It also happens that summer bridal season is coming up. So, it's only appropriate to contemplate the big day that trumps them all: your wedding.
You've chosen the flowers and the bridesmaid color palette, and your wedding-day manicure should get the same careful consideration. Thus, we've broken down the nail-polish colors specifically designed with brides in mind (complete with cute matrimony monikers, too). From Essie's Blushing Bride (a nude peachy tone) to the perfect "something blue" by OPI, find the perfect polish to top your own picturesque white-dress moment.

Similar to Essie Blushing Bride, Marc Jacobs polish in Glow Business was designed to give nails a transparent, plasticized finish. The polish has patented bonding agents that make this formula resistant to chipping — which is helpful if you're heading straight to your honeymoon destination after the reception.

Sally Hansen's gel-like formula comes in this white-tinged pink that's adorably called Shell We Dance. If the name and timeless tone don't convince you, you can fall back on the fact that it's a color strikingly similar to Meghan Markle's fresh mommy manicure.
