Whether in the spotlight as the Bride, on the sidelines as a member of the Wedding Party or just a well-manicured guest—planning the perfect 20 (mani & pedi) is a beauty must that should top every bride's checklist. From BRIDESMAID-inspired bachelorette parties and themed bridal showers to the exchange of rings, tossing (and catching) of the bouquet and the most picture-perfect honeymoon – it's a hands-on experience. Selecting the right shade and shape is as much a personal choice as picking out the perfect gown! Duri Cosmetics offers a host of options to meet any Bridezilla's exacting standards—from classic french and creamy pearls to brilliant brights that nail the special day.
"We are seeing more and more brides go from a natural nail for her walk down the aisle to a dramatic pop of color to accent her reception change out dress," says Faina Ritz, creator of Duri Cosmetics and the visionaire behind Duri's A Perfect Match Collection. "Brides can start with a light shade like Wedding Vows (pretty pale pink) and then apply a coat of a deeper color like Runaway Bride (cranberry red) after the wedding for a whole new look at the reception!"
As for bridesmaid manicures, Ritz suggests going outside the box and avoid matching color choices. If the bridesmaids are wearing a neutral color dress, they don't have to wear a neutral polish. Allow the look to "pop" with a richer color polish such as Happily Ever After (bright classic pink) and vice versa for bright color gowns (pale them down with a pale).
For bachelorette parties, Ritz suggests going a little crazy with fun, loud hues like Bachelorette Party (a fun orangy-red) and Girl Power (shimmery magenta) - perfect shades for the ultimate girls' night out.
Whether a warm weather event or winter wedding – once the band starts to play, those stilettos will come off, so don't forget the lower 10. Use a bright, but classic shade like Every Day Is A Valentine (sheer red) to give your toes a little kick! And for the classic bride, remix the French Pedicure with Lily Of The Valley (sophisticated light pink).
A Perfect Match collection includes 12 vow inspired hues…
I Do - a shimmery white for french manicure; Wedding Vows - a pretty pale pink; Bridal Bells - a clear, glossy bright pink; Lily Of The Valley - a sophisticated light pink; Daddy's Girl - a sheer baby pink; Champagne bubbles - a shimmery pearl; Hawaiian Honeymoon - a tropical peachy pink; Bachelorette Party - a fun orangy-red; Happily Ever After - a bright classic pink; Girl Power - shimmery magenta; Every Day Is A Valentine - a sheer red; Runaway Bride - a cranberry red.
And for the perfect Bridal Party gift, mix 'n match three hues to create a collection of polishes for bridesmaids to remember the big day by (i.e. chose colors that match the wedding theme from the dresses down to the flowers).
