My FI and I are getting our engagement photos done in a few weeks and I can’t decide what type of manicure to get. I want to go get them done professionally since a large portion of the photos will focus on the ring and hands! I’m debating between a shellac manicure in a light pastel pink or a french manicure with acrylic nails. What do you ladies think would be better to accent the ring?

I had a pinkish nude polish. Nudes/pale pinks lengthen the fingers and are most flattering to your hands, and if it chips, it won’t be super obvious.

I haven’t had anything other than gel nails for the past few (2-3ish) years and love them as they last weeks with no chipping etc. I would never go back to acrylic and if I were to take them off (which I know at some point I will), I would do a gel manicure…..it lasts longer than regular polish. And I would stick with a french manicure for the classic beauty aspect and cuz you want something neutral. =)

Shellac will give you some colour which is nice! If you’re going for the French look, def go with gel as PP said!

Awesome ladies! If I decide on colour I’ll go with the shellac and if I decide on the french manicure look I’ll try the gel – I’ve never done gel before so it didn’t even occur to me! My dress for the photos is white so it should match whatever I decide 🙂 Thanks for the input 🙂

Honest I hate French manicures. I have them ugly and obvious and porn starish.
I know that’s mean to say but that’s what I think. I honestly suggest you try a red or navy polish. I feel like a classic red you can never go wrong! Just stay away from shimmery polishes!!
