Nailed It

The wedding is rapidly approaching and most details of my wedding day look have been finalized, but there's one detail that still needs to be attended to: my nails.

Even though Kate Middleton is basically my inspiration for everything, I don't want to go with the same type of pink-neutral polish she wore on her wedding day.
It's pretty, but I want something a little more fun. Glitter would be fun...

...but I don't think I can do glitter with a gel manicure. I've never had one before, and the wedding is the perfect time to try one because it will stay all through the wedding and the honeymoon.

I could also try nail strips, like these from Sally Hansen.

All the no-chip benefits of gel, but with sparkles!

But I'm still not 100% sold on glitter. It might be a bit too cutesy for my wedding. A classic red is my go-to nail shade. It makes me feel like a grown-up, and it would be perfectly preppy for Cape Cod. Essie's Geranium is the perfect shade, but is it a little TOO bright?
Polish or Perish
We don't really have wedding colors, but if I had to pick one color that shows up repeatedly in our wedding, it's grey. Maybe I should take a page out of Michelle Obama's book and try that.
Which color do you think I should wear?
