No color for me, but I was also 100% surprised. If I had known it was coming, I probably would have gotten red/ burgandy.

I’ve been keeping my nails super tidy but unpainted until he pops the question because I’m getting a sapphire ring and don’t know the exact color the stone will be so I don’t want it to clash! Hoping to get a great orange-red color for engagement pictures

Mine was a surprise, so my nails were completely naked XD But I wouldn’t have had it any other way 🙂

I think my proposal is coming on the 26th and I want to kick myself in the ass becasue I can’t afford to continue to get my nails done. I’ve been sick the last few months and have been out of work for the most part. I also have more important things to spend my money on, and that’s on my 3 children. I always do a crap job paining my own nails and ever since I had the gels off, my nails are short and brittle.

I had a really soft pink that was completely overgrown, so there are no pictures of it! I had been keeping them up, expecting that it was coming! I always went with a soft, pink polish (it was the middle of summer and I was really tan so it worked!) just something pretty, but let the ring shine. I was actually going to get my nails done the night of the proposal, but he was in “such a rush” to get somewhere that he asked if I could just do it the next day. Then he proposed later that night, and I was like “You definitely should have let me get my nails done ;)” He also told me to just thow on jean shorts and a t-shirt for the night even though he was more dressed up than usual (I didn’t listen and put on a nice jumpsuit, thank goodness!)

I always have my nails done. Well, I do them myself. I was quite sure a proposal was coming so I opted for a less invasive, soft color. I wore CND Shellac Rosebud.

I’m getting engaged this weekend (I think)! I didn’t have time to get my nails done. The nail salon was closed by the time I got there. We are leaving for our trip soon so I’m kinda bummed that my nails will be bare for this ,but still so excited for the weekend!

I knew my proposal was coming, but I wasn’t prepared because the jewelry store got my ring done a week early.  My nails were grown out a good two weeks and I was due for a manicure when he proposed.
