(I apologize in advance for the frivolity of this thread, I’m putting off approximately 4 hours of reading)
If you thought your SO was on the verge of “doing it already” would you get your nails done (just in case)? hehe.
AND, if so, how far in advance of the possibly-imminent proposal would you start getting your nails done?
Fake or real? If real, Shellac, regular Mani, or DIY?

I usually get my nails done with Gellish before special occasions so yes, I voted for #2 ! It also feels good to have my nails pretty

You’re not crazy, I did that too. I had my nails so nice all summer in anticipation and once I got the ring I didn’t for months lol

I paint my nails every week. My nails were painted when my Fiance proposed, but they were chipping. I picked the last option because I thought it was funny. But I’d say paint your nails if that’s what you usually do, you never know whne it might happen!

I wish I didn’t had peeled off polish when mine happened and if you dont get a proposal at least you got your nails done.

I might try not to let them go to hell in a handbasket (I’m a nail-picker) but I wouldn’t get a manicure in anticipation. The first thing I did after getting my ring was book manicure appt though. 🙂

@gramgeek: Yay, I love Gelish/Shellac too.

Lol, I voted the last option because it’s cute. 😛
I knew when mine was coming (we picked up the ring from the jewler together after designing it and having it made together) and my nails looked like crap! I hadn’t even considered it! 🙂
ETA: My nails usually look like crap and I don’t really do much to them but paint them on my own occasionally, so that may factor into my answer, haha.

I used to get my acrylics done but it was so expensive, plus I nearly ripped off my thumb nail the last time I took them off! So lately, I’ve been doing home manicures! I voted I’d do it myself… But right after I’m going in to get a pro manicure. I’ve been wanting one but actually putting it off until I do get engaged 🙂

I wasn’t sure which one to pick so I didn’t vote since I’ve been DIYing gelish in anticipation but still no proposal lol. Since I quit biting my nails in the beginning of September, I’ve had them gelished (can I make that a verb?) just in case.
I’m putting off studying!

I did DIY one weekend that I really thought it would happen on. But if I knew that a proposal was happening, I would totally go for another round. Lol.

@Mrslawyer2bee: I recently stopped biting too!!! And I STILL am not doing my reading ! lol

Yes, definitely! I knew my proposal was coming and I went out for a mani and picked a sheer pink shade so that the ring would stand out more in the photos! LOL!

I voted yes. If I had a hunch it were coming, I’d definitely opt for a shellac … especially since it lasts for a few weeks 😉 Especially right now … and around the holidays. Man, I feel so bad just confessing this!

Hell yes…I would get a pro manicure (not fake though). I have been doing my nails myself for the past month….just in case..lol!
