Your fridge door is covered with photos of your cutest coupled-up friends, every warm weather weekend is fully booked, and you’ve been practicing the Hustle — must be wedding season! And as a guest, there’s only one thing more anxiety inducing than finding the perfect dress to fit every single RSVP: choosing the nail art to match. Since we know you’re drained from sartorial decision making, we’re here to help with 15 DIY manis so elegantly subtle that you can wear them all wedding season long. From a dreamy palette of pastels to the most major metallic accents, we guarantee your digits will be pretty for each “I Do” and fully prepped to catch the bouquet.

1. Metallic Half Moons: This manicure is as elegant as it is badass. We love that this look dares to bring the half moon style up top to the tips. (via Bella Sugar)

2. Abstract Nails: We’re floored at how mint, hot pink and gold can play so nicely together on this perfectly layered mani. What excites us even more? You don’t need any nail art tools to get this artsy look! (via …love Maegan)

3. Pale Blue Half Moons: Yes, you totally can wow with bare nail beds. Just choose a soft pastel hue like duck egg blue or canary yellow to compliment your clear half moons. (via Nordstrom)

4. Sugar Rush: So you’ve found the perfect nude polish (lucky!). Now make it pop with a contrast color outline, like this radiant orchid. Make sure the line is as thin as possible to keep the look classy. (via Essie)

5. Chunky Glitter Nails: Trust us: a chunky glitter polish will quickly become your go-to all wedding season long. Not only does it make a bold statement, but it takes next to no effort to apply. (via The Nail Polish Challenge)

6. Peach Tip Pastel Mani: There’s always room in your nail polish collection for a few more luxe pastels! This lavender and to-die-for peach tip mani proves that much. (via So Nailicious)

7. Ink Blot Nails: Here’s a totally new way to wear black and white nails, inspired by inkblot tests. The graphic is just symmetrical enough to look on point for a fancy occasion. (via …love Maegan)

8. Purple Ombre: We’re suckers for anything ombre, but there’s more going on with this version of the trend. The fade doesn’t match from hand to hand, and that subtle switch up feels way fresh. (via Pshiiit)

9. Gold and Mint Polka Dot Nails: The mix of mint + gold is as much a staple in our nail art arsenal as polka dots, so we’re swooning hard over this mani that combines both. Plus that glittery gold accent nail keeps the look from being too cutesy. (via Girl Loves Glam)

10. Bow Me Over: Bow tie nails? Amazing! Of course, we’d paint the spiffy graphics to match our +1’s tie. (via Essie)

11. Nail Striped Mani: We love how this blogger uses nail striping tape as an embellishment on her lovely coral mani. It’s such a clever way to amp up a single-polish look. (via Pshiiit)

12. Spring Flowers: We’re not gonna lie… these painted petals might just upstage the bride’s bouquet ;) (via Pshiiit)

13. Party Line: This is the perfect way to politely rock an edgy manicure at a formal soiree. Those metallic stripes on either side of the nail are seriously sharp. (via Essie)

14. Pastel Watercolor Nails: Why choose between pastel colors when you can wear all of them on one hand? That’s why we love, love, love this watercolor look where each hue blends into the other like a dream. (via Cosmopolitan)

15. Pink + Glitter Nails: We went ahead and saved the best for last: a seriously simple yet swoon-worthy ballerina pink mani with chunky gold half moons. (via Born in ‘82)
