    I’m not a huge fan of tips.  But I think french or a color on your natural nails will be beautiful.


    Top of the Mark is so gorgeous– lucky you!

    If you don’t normally wear acrylic or tips I don’t think you should do it for the sake of engagement. It’s not you!!

    The french manicure youp posted looks really nice, and it probably suits you better. It definately looks natural.

    Make sure to come back and post your pretty manicured ring photos Wink

    Ditto the shellac. You can get a french tip with shellac. It won’t damage your nails and looks way more natural than acrylics.

    Another vote for french shellac on your natural nails!

    Shallac is amazing, lasts almost two weeks, doesn’t damage your nails like fake nails do and you can get a french.

    I prefer natural. in fact, the only french manicure I like is when the tips are not super white or totally opaque. you can get salons to use a more subtle, semi-opaque colors so it is like you were blessed with really healthy looking nails.

    @Jane8530:  Your natural nails are pretty. No need to get fakes they damage your nails and it’s not worth it if they are temporary.

    A nail salon can do a fantastic manicure on your real nails…you’ll want them as close to your normal look as possible, I would think.  A friend of mine never wore tips, but got them for her wedding…she hated how you could see them in the pictures and they were so ‘not her’.  I wore my natural nails to my real wedding, with a french manicure and loved it!  Now with the shellac (I think it’s the same as the OPI Gel??) it’s perfect!  it should chip, but will look amazing!

    I voted natural nail/french, but I think natural nails in a natural/pale pink gel polish would be even better 🙂
