    Nope, I just let people stare at my ring instead. It's so pretty they won't notice my nails. : (12 votes)

    I paid a little bit of extra attention to them, mostly in terms of length and taking care of my cuticles, but I didn’t get (or give myself) manicures or anything.

    I can’t sing the praises of a gel manicure high enough! I usually paint my nails myself though, and I try not to have any chips.

    @miz fizzix: Ive always been a little obsessive about my nails, but I did get a french manicure the first few months of being engaged 🙂

    I dont mean to threadjack but how do those vitamins work? My hair is super thin and Ive been thinking about taking something to help, but not sure if its worth it.

    I’ve been taking biotin and as a nail biter there is a noticeable difference! before whenever i would try and grow them out, they would always tear at the sides. now they are nice and strong and i haven’t chewed (except my thumb nails) since august. 

    also, my hair has always grown fast, but i’d say it’s growing closer to a full inch a month versus the 1/2-3/4″ before. here was my hair in august, and here it is now (ignore my lack of makeup in the second pic):

    I definitely keep them up now where I didn’t before. I had acrylics for about 6 months after I was first engaged but now I usually do the Red Carpet Manicure/Gelish manicure. It’s amazing and I love being able to do it myself.

    I was actually a terrible nail bitter when we got engaged…the first photos I took of my ring to show friends and family out of state were so embarresing so sense I have grown them out and keep them painted and well taken care of, just because it makes me feel good to look down and see my beautiful rings and beautiful nails!
