Hello and welcome to Beyond the Paint, a blog by Bio Seaweed Gel (BSG).
Every other Wednesday we will be releasing new content that will discuss all things nails and more.

Say I Do To These Perfect Shades

Attention all attendees of weddings this summer! Whether you are the one tying the knot, a bridesmaid or a wedding guest, we have the perfect neutrals and romantic tones for you.

Before we get into the colours and looks we have an announcement we’d like to share regarding the posting schedule of the weekly blog posts! Starting today, May 12th 2021, new blog posts content will be shared on a bi-weekly posting schedule ♡

Now, let’s get back to the main attraction: Let’s say I do to these perfect wedding shades and looks…

The Classic

05 Cotton Angel is a classic sheer nude that looks great against any skin tone! It serves as the perfect base for a French manicure or paired with minimal nail foil art as seen below.

Nude Browns

Not all nudes fit the same and nude doesn’t always mean a pink base! We love this minimal wavy line work done using varying shades of brown like 44 Java, 184 Gingerbread and 1010 Sugar Cookie.

A White Nail Moment

We love a white nail moment, especially for the summer time! Wear it solid, or as an abstract design like the one below, using 101 Snow White and 278 Jelly Bean.

My Nails but Opalescent

02 Seashell gives us the perfect “my nail but opalescent” colour. We love the subtle multi colour effect this shade gives without it being ‘too much’ colour. Besides diamonds, pearls are also our best friends.

Something Blue

84 Hydrangea is a gorgeous soft baby blue that could be your ‘something blue’ regardless if you are tying the knot or not (pun intended).

A Cult Favourite Pink

172 Toffee is definitely a BSG favourite, wear alone as a solid or use as the base colour for a different take at a French manicure. What other perfect time is there to wear one of our number one colours than on your special day?

Soft Taupe-Grey

Wedding season doesn’t always mean a pink or nude skin tone shade – 57 Mousse is a soft taupe-grey which is always a great neutral choice! We love both looks below and how adding Swarovski crystals or having a glitter accent nail really elevates the entire look!

For the Trendy Wedding Guest

This look is perfect for the trendy wedding guest, a classic French manicure featuring a fun bright summer colour like 287 Better in A Bikini. This look is also perfect for a destination wedding - wedding ready and vacation ready!

Floral

Catch the bouquet and wear it too. Have it drawn on and paired against a light brown like 253 Halifax  or encapsulate dried flowers and pair with a sheer shade like 278 Jelly Bean.

 

Let us know which look was your favourite and what colour or look you would wear whether you're the one tying knot, in the wedding party or as a wedding guest.

I love the Better in A Bikini French twist! Would definitely wear something like this as a wedding guest!

My favorite wa "a white nail moment by photophrnails. Probably because it was close to what I wore for my wedding. I like the classic look of white taken on a new journey and not being so traditional with the regular french. And the grey looks were nice too.

I truly appreciate the combined abstract/floral nature of the glasshouse.nails design and the clean abstract simplicity of nata_li_nails’ manicure. I’d enjoy wearing Edmonton or Winnipeg for a neutral flattering base.

Monika May 12, 2021

The “trendy wedding guest” French manicure with a pop of colour like “better in a bikini” is my favourite look! I love how it’s a classic French manicure but has a pop of colour, I would definitely wear this as a wedding guest; it’s perfect for the summer!

Sara Meli May 12, 2021

I’m all about that seashell life. Can keep a simple nail with it while adding a hint of something special at the same time. And you could use it over anything or as a background to floral nails. Super pretty

Danielle May 12, 2021

I have been loving all these elegant nail trends lately! I have also been dying to try the shade Halifax. It’s just so pretty!!

My fave is seashell ! But also toffee is gorgeous. OK but real talk they all are though- how can you really just choose one 😍😍 BSG is the best gel polish brand on the market.

Alleah Taylor May 12, 2021

Halifax is my favorite look this season. For my wedding I wore a color very similar to seashell.
