With engagement season giving us some major ring goals, we must not forget about the nails. After all, the secret to an enviable engagement ring photo isn’t about the background or even the rock itself, at least not entirely: it’s about having the perfect polish color or manicure to go with your sparkler. Think of polishes as accessories for the ring. A creamy pink or metallic tone can bring new life to those carats. Although most brides-to-be are eager to show off their new rocks immediately, that doesn’t mean prewedding manicures are out of the picture. Before the big day, you’ll want to steal some of the following Instagram-worthy nail ideas below. And the engagement rings? That’s just extra eye candy.
