    @peonyinlove:  I like them both, but I voted for the pale pink becuase it almost looks nude and will go with anything. Unless you plan on wearing a fabulous black or blingy dress (which perhaps you are since its your bday and proposal) then go with the gold!

    Personally I’d go with subtle, I want people looking at my RING, not my nails! I might do the pale pink with a slight silver shimmer to them, but thats just me… go with what YOU love!

    @SweetartMD:  I agree, a nice silver shimmer over that pale pink would look lovely!

    I voted for classic so that the focus will be on your ring, and 50 years from now when you look at pics from “the weekend you got engaged” — or show them to your grandchildren — you probably won’t be thinking “Darn! Wish I’d painted my nails that sparkly gold trendy color that everyone stopped wearing a thousand years ago.”

    The ballerina nails will stand the test of time. Save the sparkly gold nails for the holidays, maybe?

    Oh and good luck this weekend!!!!! Congrats on your coming proposal!

    The day I got engaged (which was a complete surprise to me) my FI treated me to a manicure. I let him pick the color and he picked this bright blue. Now I’m way more of a nude nail color person so when he proposed later that day I was a little disappointed that I agreed to do blue for my nails. I wanted the ring to be the center of attention and not my nails. If I were you I would pick that lovely pale pink for sure 🙂

    This is me showing off my newly maincured nails, literally right before he popped the question.

    Let the ring shine!! I had a feeling my proposal was coming the night of our anniversary. I painted my nails a nude color then night before then called my (now) hubby before bed, mentioning that I had just painted them! He said, “Are they gray?” — his favorite color (he’s an architect, so his favorite colors and gray, black and white . . . ). I thought, hmmm, strange that he’s asking about the color of my nails. So I stayed up another hour taking off the nude, painting them gray and waiting for it to dry! But, it was all worth it! My nails look great in the pictures that were snapped!
