Whether you're a modern bride or prefer to keep it traditional, there's a wedding nail polish out there for you. If you're planning on painting your own, or have bridesmaids to think about, colour choice is probably something playing on your mind. To save you spending the weekend at a department store holding up different bride-to-be shades under bad lighting, we've rounded up six new-season polishes that aren't just alternating shades of nude. 

If a bridal manicure and pedicure is another expense you just can't handle adding to the ever-growing wedding budget list, a DIY job is a totally reasonable option with any of these lacquers.

Click through for the best bridal nail colours of the minute.

Sally Hansen Colour Therapy in Blushed Petal ( $17 ) ($8)

This polish is formulated with oils to nourish dry, weak nails—perfect if yours aren't in good nick. A pale peachy-pink works for very fair and deeper skin tones but medium complexions might find it washes them out. 

Kester Black Nail Polish in Sky ($20)

If you're over neutrals but still don't want to go bright, this pale blue makes for a unique wedding mani that isn't too out there. It's nice on toes as well if you'd rather keep your fingers nude. 

OPI Iceland Collection in Reykjavic Has All The Hot Spots ($20)

OPI's brand-new Iceland collection is full of quirky shades, but we love this muted rose most as a sophisticated take on the classic pink bridal mani. 

Essie Nail Colour in Fiji ($15)

So we added a pale pink to the list—sue us. While not totally ground-breaking, this shade is a classic colour choice for many brides. 

JinSoon Nail Lacquer in Ube ($26)

This lilac is too pretty to pass on. A modern take on pastels, it works for any skin tone but looks especially amazing on olive complexions. (Hello, beach wedding.) 

RMS 6-Free Nail Polish in Beloved ($22)

If your wedding is high glamour, red digits are 100 percent called for. This vegan formula is a stunning blue-red that almost comes off magenta. If you're the matchy-matchy type, you can buy a lip tint in the same shade
