I’ve only gotten a manicure 5 times in my life- twice for proms, once for my sister’s wedding, once for my wedding and the day we got engaged.

I knew we’d be taking a lot of photos, so I wanted them to look pretty. But if you really aren’t into it, I don’t think you have to. But it does make it a little more special.

I think it looks fine! haha! I always think it’s funny that people get their nails done right after getting engaged. I understand that it looks nice but for someone like me, it makes no sense. Every manicure I’ve gotten has started to lift after 2 or 3 days and polish chips after a day!

Personally I am all about any excuse to get a manicure! Usually I do my nails at home but I think getting engaged is the perfect excuse to pamper yourself. Never again will every single person in your life be so interested in looking at your hands!

Any excuse to get a maincure is a good excuse to me! Haha. I went and got a fresh mani the day after we got engaged. I knew that people wanted to see the ring and I wanted to post a picture online with it on my finger so thats mostly why I did it.

Your nails are nice though. Maybe just put a coat of clear polish on so that they have a little extra sheen to match that bling!

I got a full set put on right before our trip to Vegas where I guessed that he was going to propose. If you are worried about chips, get a full set put on, they never chip. Ever!

No, I never get manicures. I’m not even sure if I’m going to get one for the wedding.

nope! we were in costa rica when we got engaged and i didn’t want to get a manicure in a foreign country. we were there for another week, so all of the photos have my super short nails (my nails got DESTROYED while in CR!) with no polish 🙂

i rarely get manicures anyway..i’m much more of a pedicure person.

I think I had my nails done once prior to getting engaged and since then I get them weekly!  Its kind of annoying, but also a bit addicting.  I am a reformed nail biter!!!
