Wedding Nail Art Inspiration: Something Borrowed

Something Old, Something New, and now… Something Borrowed.

Weddings are full of decisions, big and small. Some little details might get noticed by your guests, while other little details might be just for you—a special reminder of what’s important as you embark on your new life. Today’s nail art is one of those details: meaningful, personal, and darling.

I’ll let Rathy of Petite Peinture, who created the look, explain: “It is actually something very meaningful to me (as well as my husband), because what inspired this look was the pearl necklace that belonged to my husband’s late mother. I wore it on our wedding day so that she was able to be a part of the ceremony and celebration of our marriage, even though she could not be with us physically.”



After a protective base coat, Rathy first applied a base of Phyllis (Classic with a Twist), a soft petal pink crème. With a dotting tool dipped in Ava (Bombshell), she then dotted around the edges of the nails.

“A very simple look, but still paying attention to detail,” says Rathy. “Don’t forget to add your favorite top coat!”

Stay tuned for next week, when we’ll unveil the final look of this series: Something Blue.
