Hahaha. I did the same thing right before Fiance proposed. I went with a clear polish…I used OPI’s Nail Envy. It looks classic and timeless. And it feels pretty like acrylic nails!

OPI had a few a while back that had bridal names like “Marry the man” etc. They were all soft pink colors. You might still be able to find them.

I agree with pp that say clear or pale pink. (or male brown depending on your skin tone… something that will look natural). Congrats!

I say go for a coral-ey red (for the pop and contrast to make the rock stand out or the ol’ fashioned and my always favorite standby, the french manicure!

Best wishes!

I had to laugh because I definitely did this!  When I suspected my husband was going to propose, I kept my nails perfectly manicured, just in case I needed to snap some photos!

When I got engaged, I was wearing Ballet Slippers from Essie, which is a nice light pink. If you want something brighter, my all-time favorite red is “I’m Not Really a Waitress” from OPI.  For something darker, I’m liking “Give Me Moor” from the new OPI Espana collection.

i love opi nail polishes!  I have black cherry chutney on my nails right now, but if you don’t want anything so loud, maybe go for a more muted pink… otherwise engaged or pinking of you!

Im with Belle on this one.  Husband loves when I wear deep reds because they make the ring REALLY noticeable.  Pale pinks are elegant and classic, but for impact factor Id go with something bold so the ring pops

I’m a huge fan of light pink shades by Essie. My favorite is called ballet flats or something like that….

There is just something girly and fun about a light pink shade!

I have OPI’s “Here’s to Us”, which is a nice light pink and for red, OPI’s “I’m Not Really a Waitress” and “Red, Red, Rhine”.

I also like Essie’s “Ballet Slippers” and the “Bordeaux” (sp?)
