    I always keep mine painted anyways. But I did get a manicure the weekend I thought it would happen. I’m glad that I did 🙂

    I get my nails done on a regular basis so I can’t answer the poll, there’s not an option for that.  However, when my Fiance popped the question my nails looked awful, so I got them done on my lunch hour the next day so I could show off my ring without embarrassment, lol.

    Most girls hit the nail salon the day they get engaged, after the ring, before the pictures. I got engaged on a trip, did my own nails for the initial pics, and then hit the salon the day I got back. It is a fun part of the process!

    I got my nails done before going on the vacation I thought we would be getting engaged on.  The night that I thought he would propose came and went and they were starting to get all chippy, so I took all the nail polish off rather than fix it and figured it really wouldn’t matter. 

    He proposed three days later…Argh! lol

    No, I didn’t do anything special. The next day my sister and I went to the salon and got our nails done so we could have girl time and gush though.

    I didn’t get a manicure before I got engaged, but I did get one afterward (like the day after).

    Yes, but only becasue my hubby took me to get one the day he proposed. He knew I’d want to show off my ring right away. Otherwise, I would’ve been au natural.

    I dunno. I kinda think the whole thing’s silly. It didn’t even occur to me what my nails would look like, or that other people would care (they don’t).

    I always have my nails done now, every two weeks (gel manicures – they’re the best!!!!) since otherwise I will bite them til they’re nonexistent.  Though I had gold on them when he proposed, which I thought clashed terribly, haha, so I got them redone in maroon for when I got the ring back from being sized.

    I’d say if you’re not normally a manicure person, don’t bother; when you get the ring, you can choose to go get a manicure before you fully show it off 🙂

    We only see each other on weekends, so I’ve been making sure mine are painted. It hasn’t happened yet, but they’ll be pretty when it does. If they’re chipping or he manages to do it during the week when we normally wouldn’t see each other, I’d go paint them before taking pictures.
