    @RenoSweeney24:  My center stone is a really rich purple, but the flash (unless it’s way better quality than my cell phone) makes my stone look washed out and flat.

    I ony wear nail polish when I can afford to have to have them painted in a nail salon because I have no skill when it comes to painting my own.

    @RenoSweeney24:   What?? What was the thread called, and how does nail polish determine what one thinks of a ring??

    @RenoSweeney24:  Eh. I’m not sure this is a fair poll. It doesn’t matter if my ring was $1 or $1 million. I don’t wear nail polish because I work in health care and wash my hands a bajillion times a day. I don’t wear fake nails for the same reason. 

    I’m interested in seeing the results though.

    How does flash affect pictures of my ring?

    It makes my ring look EXACTLY like I took a picture of it with the flash on.

    I paint my nails all the time, they always have polish and have for years. Despite the fact I work in a lab/wear gloves/wash my hands constantly. I for whatever reason feel uncomfortble without nail polish on my nails. My ring was in the $1,000-$3,000 range.

    I paint my own nails. Just FYI.

    How does flash effect my makes it really hard to get a clear shot.

    I bite my nails, so I don’t have them painted most of the time. But, I’m trying to stop, and I’ve found that having them painted actually stops me from biting most of the time. So I voted no, but I’m starting to move towards yes!

    I usually dont wear nail polish, and when I do, it never lasts! BUT – that being said – the minute my nail polish chips and starts looking gross I take it off entirely. You will never catch me with chipped nail polish!


    Here is my ring with flash looking all grey and such:

    nail polish has no impact on the price of the ring…  the flash;however does and my ring looks much better without the flash.
