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.

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!:)

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.

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.
