Ugh… mine were naked. I had no idea a proposal was coming. Here’s a photo from the day we got engaged, bare nails and all. I’ve been way better about nail upkeep since then! lol

Naked, broken and dirty haha but I’m not one to have great nails as an educational assistant and child care worker. 

Day 5 into our Ireland exploring ❤️👌🏼

My nail polish looked better in person. I’m just glad my nails looked nice (I have struggled with nail biting for a long time and within the last year or so, I had finally gotten them looking nice and healthy).

I knew the proposal was coming but not exactly when. I had just painted my nails earlier in the day as a trial for when I thought the proposal would be.

Mother-in-law to be insisted she take me out to get my nails done for my birthday. I do my nails at home so I knew something was fishy when she kept mentioning that I needed a nicer color. 

Whats better than white with unicorn powder for the big day!!?? wink

ha ha,,,,I’ve chosen to make sure my nails are done until the end of this year as I KNOW the proposal is comming soon – OMG can’t wait, lol. 

So I want to make sure my nails look good of couse (the salesman at the jewerly shop also told my boyfriend the same thing “make sure you girl’s nails are done when you are going to pop the question, my wife tells me to tell every man coming in the buy an engagement ring this info, lol”) 

Color wise I’m not really zoning in on a specific color, I thing all nails look great when the are neatly taken care of and painted no matter what color really…

I had a feeling he might propose soon, so I got my nails done. And just in time, too. He proposed this past Saturday! ♥

My SO did it at his birthday party that I MYSELF put together for him (everyone knew except for me) so I basically planned my own engagement party. I set the color scheme as blue and gold, so I had sparkly gold nails.

I got a light pink mani since we both knew it was going to happen on our trip to Colorado.

I was obsessively getting my nails done on the regular before my fiance proposed because I wanted to be prepared. My fiance proposed the night before my nail appointment right after I took off all my nail polish. Of course. LOL

Thus is is the day after but same princess pink nails as the night before. They actually look much better in this photo than they did in person. We were in Europe and I had to borrow some dry shampoo and it was for dark hair and it kind of stained my nails and they were stuck that way the whole trip. Wasn’t expecting a proposal as we had already planned to elope 3 months later.

I go in phases with painting my nails. I use to be so much better at it! 

Since I knew the proposal was coming, I was pretty good and kept my nails nices for two months, LOL. They were so long when he proposed, it was nice! But now they have all broken off and I haven’t painted them in a few weeks. 

Here are my nails from when he proposed.
