This begins my quest for the nail art to wear to my wedding! I figured I do in fact want to wear a burgundy (to match the bridesmaids dresses and the calla lilies), but I don’t know what to DO about this purple! My first attempt was a chandelier-type nail art, the likes of which I have done many times in the past.
Honestly, I don’t like how these colors go together. When I tested them on my mat they looked good, but the purple-nude is just not right with the reddish purple! If I had a very soft off-white nude (aka the color of my dress) I think that would make a much better base. But, alas! This is all I have.
I still LOVE this pattern. But I don’t really think I want to wear this to my own wedding! It is also the only pattern I currently have with any type of a half moon design, so I am posting it for “half moon” day.
What’s more, in direct light the colors pop and the purple is vibrant…and in the shade (aka indoors) the purple looks a little like mud brown! Sad.

The other thing this means is that you guys get to see a LOT of purple-based manis coming up. I am also open to suggestions…it is going to be a super weird wedding with Star Wars and Disney music, being held in a science museum! The ceremony is in a planetarium 😀 If you guys can think of something fun and quirky that I should try, let me know!
