I did a clear pink colour. Very simple. I think french tips are looking quite dated and wanted a fresh look!

I painted my nails a nude, neutral pink. I did it myself and I regret both the colour and the fact I didn’t get them done professionally. In the photos the polish colour is TOO matchy with my skin tone, and I didn’t notice at the time that the edges of a few nails were starting to chip away (I painted them two days before the shoot due to time constraints).

 lol, I went to a salon near our apartment that was highly recommended. They have one person there that does all the artwork, they usually work on fake nails and they had to practice a litlte – numbers aren’t usual requests, but I really like the results. 🙂

We just had our engagement pictures taken last week! Cant wait to see them!

I wore OPI – Worth a pretty penny.  Beautiful and not super overwhelming color – looks great in a fall/outdoor background.

I totally forgot about my nails, so they were a dark purple colour! Essie’s “Smokin’ Hot”. Hopefully they still looked ok! Just had the e-shoot on Sunday.

hbadger:  What OPI color is that? Very pretty! I too have pale skin and worry about the light pink trend washing out my skin tone, but that gold is perfect!

I got shellac in a super light pink (called “coconut” or something like that):

I did a nude and they looked clean and classy but not distracting!  They just matched well with everything!
