Wedding Nails and mixing polishes

I've been having some difficult deciding on a polish to wear on the big day (which is only in 11 days times - freaking out a little now!!)

I'm not a big fan of pale polishes - I've not yet found a shade that suits my skin tone and of course there is always the worry that it may look slightly like pink tipex on!

So after hearing that Kate had a mix of two colours for the Royal Wedding I thought I would try it out with a pale pinky/peach and pale pink I have (don't like either really on their own)

So I went with George No Excuses and Essie Yes we can Pink!

Now disappointingly the nerves have kicked in and my nails have paid the price!!

I used to regularly bite my nails but have stopped but the added stress has made me mess with them again - luckily I haven't bite them but they are so not at there best right now to photograph. So sorry just a thumb pic!

I've two coats of each - George, Essie, George, Essie.

I actually really like the combo - its pale and pinkie but not too Barbie or too Tipex.

Eventually I think I have a winner - only thing I'm going to change is the amount, I think I'm going to go with two coats of George followed by one coat of Essie

nice combo, so neutral but pretty!

If you're not keen on pale polishes would you not consider a 'proper' colour? I opted for red after realising that a french manicure or pale pinks just weren't me!

You can see the colour I chose on my blog at the end of this post...
