Kim Kardashian Bridal Manis

© Glenn Francis,

If you're a fan of epic I dos, the wedding day countdown begins. In T-minus 24 hours, Kim Kardashian plans to walk down the aisle with New Jersey Nets basketball player Kris Humphries in Montecito, Calif.

The Saturday shindig has style watchers on high alert. What will the reality TV star have or have not, as she exchanges vows and wows at the altar? A tiara or train, or both? Based on her 20.5-carat, $2 million engagement ring, fans expect to see lots of bridal bling. 

Let's hope she nails it with her mani choice. We offer the following suggestions as Humphries takes her hand in marriage.


BEAUTY: Here's hoping the memories of the wedding won't fade, but perhaps the mani should. Design a radiant gradient with Show Me the Ring (pinky), Rock Candy (ring finger), Petal Pink (middle finger), No Prenup (index finger) and Eternal Optimist (thumb). 

BEACON: Contains no dibutyl phthalate, toluene or formaldehyde.


BEAUTY: After the ring bearer delivers the goods, all that's left is a band of gold and the dreams they hold. Apply a top coat and two layers of Pearl of Wisdom (pink opalescent). Next, paint a band of Bring On the Bling (gold glitter) around the edges of the entire nail. Finish with a top coat.  

BEACON: Contains no dibutyl phthalate, toluene or formaldehyde.


BEAUTY: The groom proposed by spelling out "Will You Marry Me?" in red rose petals. Create more flower power with It's Raining Men (pearlescent blue), Love Is In the Air (pink) and Water Lily (pinkish-white). Design petals by using a dotting tool, toothpick tip or the end of a bobby pin to place five small drops of polish in a circle. Before they dry, pull a clean toothpick tip through each dot to the center of the petal. Place a fresh drop of polish in the center of each petal to complete the look.

BEACON: Vegan, and contains no synthetic dyes, dibutyl phthalate, toluene or formaldehyde. 


BEAUTY: The black and white wedding invitations hint that the bride might create a similarly themed mani. Apply a base coat and two layers of Christinna (grayish off-white). Next, paint two coats of Raven (black) on each tip. Then apply a thin strand of Luna (silver glitter) on the seam, and finish with a top coat.

BEACON: Contains no toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin or dibutyl phthalate.
