Bridal Nail Prep
Get your bridal clients prepped using this guide to scheduled services, plus a few on-trend nail looks perfect for the wedding day.

Having the perfect manicure for the Big Day is a no-brainer, especially with all those ring shots. But getting nails in wedding-day shape means starting the prep work long before walking down the aisle. Use our timeline below as a guide to establish your own bridal packages that will ensure your clients’ nails will look beautiful for the Big Day and beyond.

6 Months Before

Encourage your clients to keep their nails in mind when they begin their bridal health regiments. It often takes at least three months for supplements to take effect, so the earlier they start the better.

3 Months Before

The key to stare-worthy nails, regardless of if you’re wearing enhancements or going au naturel, is moisturized and healthy skin and nails. Therefore, it’s important to start your client’s nail and skin care early to give time for the improvements to be visible. Remember, it takes three to six months for nails to grow out completely, so when you’re looking for an improvement in natural nail health, you need to leave ample time to see the effects. Schedule regular manicures that include gentle hand exfoliation and masks for skin and use healing nail products like Gelish VitaGel Recovery or Morgan Taylor DailyElixir Keratin Natural Nail Treatment to help improve breaks, splits, and dryness.

1 Week to 2 Days Before

The last nail appointment should be a few days before the wedding — up to a week for enhancements and a day or two before for natural nails. Use this appointment to care for the skin as well as to make sure it is fully moisturized and glowing. Many nail pros like to gift their bridal clients with an emergency nail kit, including a small bottle of cuticle oil, a nail file and top coat. And make sure to educate your client about the best ways for her to care for her nails from her wedding day through the honeymoon.
