    @SweetBeets:  I’m just doing natural nails. Mostly because I don’t like how polish looks on me 

    Also, I really hate the French manicure, but that’s just me. I’ve never liked it, but everyone has their own styles and opinions haha

    I only like French for special occasions. My nails were a deep red/maroon color when I got engaged.

    I’m not a fan of french manicures. I did a light orangish-pink which nearly matches my morganite ring

    I had my nails painted darky navy (Essie Bobbing for Baubles). If I had known he was going to propose I would have painted them pink, because it’s my favourite colour aha. The navy looked good though and I had just painted them so they weren’t chipped 😉

    @SweetBeets: I see a lot of people with just one coat or two of a sheer polish instead of the actual french manicure these days. I have Essie’s Mademoiselle and I think it’s the perfect colour. But lots of people still do tip french manis – rock it if you want to!

    I was in the middle of painting my nails when my SO proposed. Haha. I think that was the shade I was putting on, too.

    LOL, the year I got engaged, 2012, I told myself I’d have my nails painted always because what if he proposes?!?!!? And wouldn’t you know, the day that he did was the first day that year that they weren’t painted. I even considered it, but was kind of annoyed with him that day and decided to take a nap instead of paint my nails 🙂

    My nails were black when he proposed. I don’t think it’s really a detail that needs to be paid attention to.

    @SweetBeets:  I had French gel nails when we got engaged- had them for many years before that! I took them off after our wedding in April and I actually love having my natural nails back so that I can paint them. I love a deep wine colour:)
