Prom night is one of the most important events in a high school student’s life, and choosing the perfect outfit, hair, and makeup is essential. But don’t forget about your nails! They are the perfect finishing touch to complete your overall look. In this article, we’ll share some tips on how to choose the perfect prom nails.
Consider your dress
The first step in choosing the perfect prom nails is to consider the color and style of your dress. If you’re wearing a bold or bright colored dress, you may want to go for more neutral or understated nails. On the other hand, if your dress is more neutral or classic, you can have fun with your nail design and add some sparkles or patterns. Floral nails are also big the year.

Match your accessories
Your accessories, including jewelry and shoes, can also help guide your nail choices. For example, if you’re wearing silver or metallic jewelry, you may want to consider a metallic nail polish or nail art that complements your accessories.

Consider your personal style
Your prom nails should also reflect your personal style. If you love a classic, simple look, you can opt for a French manicure or neutral-colored nails. But if you like to make a statement, you can experiment with bold colors and unique nail art. There are a lot of DIY nail embellishments to choose from online. Here’s an example on Amazon.
Don’t forget about practicality
While you want your prom nails to look great, it’s also important to consider practicality. You’ll likely be dancing and moving around a lot, so you’ll want nails that won’t get in the way or easily chip. Gel or acrylic nails can be a great option as they are durable and long-lasting. If you’d rather not use gel or acrylic, Color Street dry nail polish strips are also a great choice. They normally last 10-14 days. You can see all of the designs on my Color Street website here.
Plan in advance
Don’t wait until the last minute to schedule your nail appointment if you plan to go to a salon. You’ll want to make sure you have enough time to experiment with different designs and get any necessary touch-ups before prom night. If you order online, allow to time for shipping.
Choosing the perfect prom nails is all about considering your dress, accessories, personal style, practicality, and planning in advance. With these tips in mind, you’ll be sure to have a stunning and memorable look for your big night.
