A slightly bolder alternative to short nails is longer nails filed in square shape. Then doing the French manicure will add a unique touch to your nails. The shape, of course sets it apart from others in a subtle and sober way. But with French manicures, always remember to biff well and apply a good glossy top coat.

Alternately, you can also go those with grey-pink sheen. The choice of color would really depend on your skin color. Do try on one nail, at the store before making your purchase and committing to the color for your wedding day. Needless to say, ensure clean nails, as light colors are more translucent than opaque.
Now this one looks very luxurious, just what you might be looking for. When you extend your nails and paint them in a very natural color and paint white flowers on top, the effect is very lace-like. Paint intricate flowers, use pastels like lime yellow and powder blue very sparingly. Fill gaps with small caviar pearls. They add a very unique texture to your painted nails.

To use just a few caviar pearls, you could play up on the color. Do a French manicure first. Paint detailed flowers in mauve and use a darker purple to contour. Do this only for a few nails, say two in every hand. Add only two-three caviar pearls to each nail to highlight the design.
