    I’m not a fan of really matchy matchy, so I’d nix the darker pinks.  I would go with a pale pink or pearl.

    I think the Iced Coral would look great with the outfit you chose.

    I think you should have a very soft neutral color, so you can tell your nails are manicured, but that won’t take away from your ring in the pictures!

    @MrsElle:  If the second outfit is a completely different color scheme then I would definitely go with a more neutral color.  You don’t want the focus to be on the nails in your second outfit!  I voted for the iced coral.

    I would pick one of the first 6 more neutral colors. I don’t think your nails should take any focus in your pictures, but just look neutral and manicured. I don’t like French manicures much but that would also be a better option than a bright color,  IMHO.

    I think french manicures are classic and look terrific in photos, as long as your nails aren’t really long.

    Neutrals or pinks. I am guilty of doing reds for big events (like when he proposed and everyone would be looking at my hand) and I am unimpressed with myself in hindsight. I wish I’d done something more neutral.
