Every bride-to-be wants her nails done before showing off her engagement ring! Whether you are suspecting his proposal or you’ve already said YES, freshly polished nails will compliment your gorgeous diamond ring. Here are some examples of nails for an engagement ring to help inspire your manicure!
Trendy Nails for an Engagement Ring
If you’re the type of girl that likes staying on top of trends, you’ve probably seen these designs in current fashion magazines.
The nail design trend right now is a look that is unexpected, but still goes together. Long gone are the days where your nails need to match. For a modern look, get a manicure where all of your fingers “kind of” coordinate with a combination of patterns and textures that work well together.
Another trend for nails is the pointed oval shape. This shape looks amazing, even on short nails. This is great if you want to be glamorous but you don’t want a high maintenance manicure with tips that will keep you going back for a fill. Have your natural nails filed to a slightly pointed oval shape.
“Mirror Nails” is the name of another trend in nail design. Iridescent whites and ivories make a perfect choice for engagement ring nails. Hombre nails are beautiful, where graduated tints and shades of the same base color are blended together to create a blurred kind of effect. Again, make sure the base color that you choose will compliment your outfit, and will not overpower your engagement ring.
Traditional Nails for an Engagement Ring
You might want to take a traditional, timeless approach to your engagement ring nails and go with the classic French tip. This is an absolute winner and it will make your fingers look elegant with any style of engagement ring.
The French tip is arguably the most formal manicure option. Another benefit is that a French tip manicure using the traditional neutrals colors will effortlessly go with any dress and engagement ring colors.
You can choose between a buff base polish or go with pink and white color combination. Tips can be filed to a sporty square, rounded or pointed. You can get really creative with the embellishments to make your French tip a little more interesting. Select white and silver accents like mini diamonds for a little extra sparkle.
Colorful Nails for an Engagement Ring
Remember that the best nail polish colors to compliment an engagement ring are soft and neutral shades. The most popular engagement rings are white diamonds with a platinum or white gold band. Bright, bold polish will fight to overpower your engagement ring. Instead, choose some pale colors or pearl finish for your nails.
If you absolutely must have colorful nails but you don’t want to overpower your engagement ring, take a hint from these photos. You can work color in subtly by adding decorative gemstones or having an accent color lightly brushed on top of a neutral base. You might even go as far as having your technician paint your ring finger a different color while keeping the rest of your nails natural.
The most classic color for engagement ring nails is red. The old Hollywood style of rounded, deep red nails will compliment any engagement ring while making a statement that you are bold and unforgettable.
Beautify your Nails to showcase your Engagement Ring
Get your nails done with the intention of displaying your engagement ring. Preparing for a proposal dinner, hosting an engagement party, or announcing your engagement are good reasons to spend an afternoon getting pampered at the nail salon.
Beautify your hands and fingers before they receive more attention than ever before!
