I usually have my nails done but I was pretty sure it was coming soon – had just got these done the day before. ☺️

Soft pink ☺️ I wore this color for like a month waiting for my husband to propose 🤣

My fiancé proposed on Fourth of July (so I unknowingly decorated for and cooked for my own engagement party!) and his sister-in-law (who is a good friend of mine) had me come over to do our nails a few days before. This wasn’t super uncommon, since we’re over at their house a lot (my fiancé and his brother are super close and best friends). In hindsight, I should’ve saw it coming because SIL was super excited to do nails and then only painted hers a weird white color and made me do mine really nice. I did red (cuz of the holiday) and then rose gold glitter. It’s a known fact that I’m obsessed with rose gold, which worked well since my ring is rose gold. Normally I would’ve preferred a more neutral color (as I never do red otherwise) but I think it worked well because of all the red colors that day!

I was SUPER surprised, and completely in love with my ring and the proposal. They got professional video (both brothers are in video, and I’m in media too) and also tons of photos since there was like 30 people at our house.

elizabee17 :  Thank you so much! 😀

It’s the Adeline ArtCarved setting in 14k rose gold from Rogers and Hollands, set with a 1.31 carat center diamond that my fiancé picked out himself (after spending 2 hours debating between two different diamonds apparently, lol). He got the matching wedding band right away too.

Girl, mine were a hot mess. I liked the colors and design for all of five minutes after they were done that month, and because of how i get paid, I try to get mine done only once a month, and of course he proposed to me at the end of the month! So this horrible paint job is going to live on in infamy, forever.

I may be the only bee without a mani!  I didn’t know he was proposing since we were thinking of going custom, but hadn’t yet started.

We had just spent the day hiking to our favorite river spot and he popped the question at a view point at the end of the day (also had no make-up and wet hair).

Mine was a total surprise. We were on vacation and I had painted my nails OPI Rosy Future before leaving home because it is a neutral and almost sheer with an iridescent tint. I like to wear light colors sometimes on vacation (when I don’t bring polish with me for touch ups) because it is less noticeable when they chip. Strangely they ended up turning a greyish color because I was wearing black gloves due to the weather being so cold and they had bled onto my fingernails.
