1. I don't have great nails but don't want to have false ones on the day - I want to look as natural as possible. But how can I have a French manicure or clear or light colour with such awful nails that break and are weak? Help! Carrie, Bradford

The oxygen then pumps hydration into the skin, leaving it completely glowing and refreshed. I would recommend you book this in for a few days before your big day.
- Have an eyebrow shape and tint – Eyebrows frame the eyes and with the right shape and colour they can make your eyes look brighter.
- Use a nail top coat to refresh the shine of your polish whilst on honeymoon – the sun and sand can dull the finish
- If you like a scent but you don’t like wearing perfume try the body lotion for a lighter fragrance and hydrated silky skin
- Spritz your skin with a skin tonic to keep refreshed in the heat and your set make up in place
- Before you polish your nails always squeak the nail plate with nail varnish remover, this removes excess oils which can affect the durability of your polish.
- For strong nails file once a week in one direction, keeping the nails short and square with corners slightly rounded. Massage cuticles with oil to stimulate growth and hydrate.
- Your first aid wedding kit should include Lavender Oil – not only will this relax you but it’s also antibacterial and has amazing healing properties, witch-hazel to dry out any spots, a good antibacterial concealer, a nail file and Nail glue for breakages.
