The old English bridal rhyme — something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence inside her shoe — dates back to the Victorian era, with the first printed evidence in a nineteenth century folklore compilation. It’s intended to outline what a bride should wear on her big day for good luck.

“Something old” represents continuity and a link to the bride’s past, while “something new” signifies the new life she’s about to embark on. “Something borrowed” evokes a sense of community and the idea that someone else’s good fortune in marriage will carry over. Lastly, “something blue” symbolizes true love and fidelity.

Many women still incorporate this fun tradition into their wedding day look. By offering bridal clients nail art that fulfills these requirements, you’ll introduce her to a creative new way of displaying her good luck charms or help her in a pinch. These designs can be worn as a manicure or as individual accent nails depending on the bride’s style preference.
