not at all!! for months after my birthday up til his I had a PERFECT opi manicure!!! however since i don’t think he’s going to ask anytime soon i don’t have any at all and i have the most awful habit of biting my nails when i am stressed… i don’t think he’s asking until sometime next year (probably my birthday) so i guess come june/july i will start again with the perfect manis.. i’ll probably get one before christmas, but more as my christmas gift to myself than a ohh he’s going to ask gift lol….

Just keep them short, then. They’ll be easier to maintain and with a nice coat of polish (or a fresh buff!) they’ll still look good.

I have the same problem!  My nails grow long and look great and then one breaks or tears and I have to start all over again!  Having short nails when you get the ring will be just fine and you could always go out for a mani after you get the ring before you start showing it off to everyone.

I had a manicure the day of my engagement. I sort of guessed it coming. Plus, it was NYE, so I had a good excuse either way. :p

Don’t stress yourself out too much– you’re human, you don’t have to be perfect!  I’m sure he loves your hands for how great it feels when he holds them, not for their flawless finish…

I was going to say, too… get the manicure before you show off the ring to friends and family; less important for when you get the actual proposal 🙂

I work in a lab and wear gloves all day long…and i will tell you…wearing gloves all day makes your nails not grow and they dont look very good. so im pretty much SOL on this one!

my nails are always done, so it wasn’t a thought for me.  

 

for those who like their natural nails but have problems with breakage and polish lasting, try an overlayment like gel silk or acrylic on your natural nails.   that is what i have on mine now that the tips have grown out.  they always look beautiful and never (watch me ginx myself now) break.  costs maybe $25 a month without airbrushing.

Before we went ring shopping, his mom took me out with her for a manicure. It was a sweet memory-maker for us and meant I had pretty nails at the jewelry shop. I’m not worried about when he proposes, but I do plan to get a manicure right after to show it off.

I thought I might be the only nut who actually thought about this! I almost never have my nails done – but twice in the last few months I got manicures because I thought for sure it was going to happen!! It didn’t…………………………..so now I am just going to wait and get them done after I get the ring.

I’m a nail polish girl, but I was especially compulsive about keeping my mani looking good before we got engaged.  I didn’t want to end up with a crappy looking manicure when I took all those ring shots. 😉
