I wore navy for my shoot, and did my nails in nude pink (which was a good call because I didn’t notice at the time I chipped a nail…but it’s not as noticable. I always think nude or french nails are a good bet. You don’t want your polish to steal the spotlight from your ring!

I agree with PP that a neutral shade is best. I did a very light, almost translucent pink for mine and definitely didn’t regret it. There was really only one shot we got of my hands close up, and I was glad that because of the sheer nail color, people were immediately more focused on the ring than anything else. My nails just looked nice and neat.

If you like glitter, a nice champagne would look great! However, if you’ll be taking pictures of your hands, you may want something more timeless like a light pink, nude, or french.

Id do a light pink with maybe a sparkle accent nail.

I wore a maroon dress/maroon shirt with black jeans and did pale pink nails. They looked really neutral though. Sorry for the massive photos! The first one is from my engagement shoot and the second one is from my phone in the car.

Gorgeous rings and nails on this thread!

My wedding colors will be a wine red and navy, with accents of champagne/gold/blush pink. When I picture how I’d like my engagement shoot to go (still nearly a year away from that point though so all of this is subject to change), I think I want to wear a champagne colored tulle skirt, with shoes and a top that pull in my wedding colors. As for the nails, I’ll probably either go with a blushy nude like the suggestions above, or a nice deep wine red I know the suggestions are always to go neutral as to not detract from the ring, but I’m really leaning toward red.

brereuther :  I actually picked a neutral just because I knew if I picked a different colour I would regret it because I’m so fickle. My wedding colours were hunter green and white but none of that is in my engagment shoot! I love your idea, and I’m sure whatever nail colour you have will look wonderful.

pammylammy :  Yup, it was my first time trying it and I really was happy with it – OPI Bubble Bath – this is the gel/shellac nails version, I would assume the regular polish would look the same but just in case.

For comparison these are my wedding nails. The colour was Rose Gold, not OPI but just some Shellac/Gel brand at the salon.

I did a bolder pink for my engagement shoot (it was in the snow and the bright color ended up being okay I think), but now I’m looking at something slightly more neutral, but still fun, for my wedding nails. I think either of the styles below would look great for your pictures!
