This Christmas it will be two years since my b/f and I met through E-Harmony. We have already talked about marriage but he has never formally proposed.
Last weekend when we were talking about moving in and getting married this Christmas, he told me to expect a big surprise on my birthday in two weeks. I am thinking he has a ring planned — at least I hope so!!
Right now my nails are the color of red wine. I don’t like this color and I’m getting my nails done tomorrow. I’m trying to decide whether to get a cherry red — which would be pretty for the holidays — or whether to go with a sheer, pearly pink natural color?
What do you guys think? If I get a ring I am obvciously going to be taking pictures and emailing them to everyone and posting on facebook. So I want my nails to look good. I would love to hear suggestions, thanks!

I personally love the paler shades on my nails. I am a very natural person, and not very flashy, though. I think paler shades tend to photograph well, and make the eye drawn to the ring instead of the nails because the nails aren’t too dramatic. It also depends on your skin color and personal preference.

Piglet I like your idea of drawing attention to the ring rather than the nails. Thanks!~

I would go with the lighter color. Save the bright red for closer to Christmas 🙂

I second the recommendation for a pale shade. I believe my proposal is coming this weekend and I am planning to either get a French manicure or a pale sheer pink. Definitely want to highlight the ring!:)

OK, the vote is unanimous. Sheer and pale it will be. I can’t WAIT!!!!!

Ha! I did the same thing right before Fiance proposed! I used this awesome sparkly pale pink by OPI, and of course I can’t remember the name. It looked really cool with my ring though, I might get it for the wedding, too!

I did the same thing!! I knew the proposal was coming, and I didn’t want my nails to look too overdone or take away from the ring, so a nice light neutral pink it was! My fingers are crossed for a proposal for you! 🙂

I say pale pink. That way your ring will stand out, just like a few PP said. That’s what I did right after my Fiance proposed.

I really like pale, nude colors as well. I would go for the classic French manicure or something like this Essie color called “ballet slippers.”

I’d say you have to go with “Show me the ring,” duh! I happened to find it in a salon before I got my upgrade… and than it was just fun to say. And it’s a nice nlight neutral color as well.

Well for me it would depend on the ring. I knew I was getting a vintage gold ring, so I went with a color that complemented it and loved the photos.
