black for a wedding?!!!

no navy blue looks awful with black

what about silver to go with accessories? or french sounds lovely

Definitely not navy.

French polish always looks lovely or I would pick a really 'stand-out' colour such as burgundy/dark red/bright pink - a bit of colour to contrast with the black and silver.

It's got to last for a couple of do's? French, if you chip it, less obvious.

the blue looks almost black, if that helps grin

what's wrong with black for a wedding?

loads of people wear black for weddings

am going to have nails done again 2 days before wedding

think i might go for french then, nails have grown a bit , have been using a sally hansens maximum growth varnish and it does seem to have helped

if i have to , i can re polish them myself, but can never get the shape as good and even as the manicurist

If theres a NailsInc near you, or anywhere else that does the Biogel overlays, then I'd really recommend the three week manicure/gel overlay. My colleague has hers in dark red, another has french and so do I, and the really do last for 3 weeks with no chipping, and strengthen your nails so they won't break either. When you're fed up of them, just soak off in acetone.

I've gone off French manicures recently & prefer a nice pinky colour. I love the Chanel pink/white polish. 3 coats last ages, make the nails look really healthy & clean and you can pop it in your bag if you need a touch up.

In terms of dark colours Rimmel do a celebrity bash colour which is lovely & lasts ages. Looks great with black & silver.

I'm wearing Rimmel's Black Cherries today and it looks fab with black. Lasts a few days too.

I'd agree that although navy is good, not sure it would go with all black.

Pretty and natural = french polish

A bit more edgy = rouge noir or even a slate grey colour (barry m and nails inc). Chanel do a new shade a little darker than rouge noir called diabolique which would work too.

thank you all very much

i do have the barry m slate grey which is nice

think i'll go for french whilst my nails are a decent length for a change
