Just got engaged? Here’s how to show off your new ring with rockin’ nails
So it turns out that the most popular time to pop the question was on New Year’s Eve! This nuptial nugget comes from vintage jewellery specialists William May who added that Christmas Eve followed by Christmas Day were next in line. So are congratulations in order?
Tiffany Norris, founder of proposal planners The One Romance has identified how certain shapes of diamond suit different personalities. Apparently don’t be alarmed if you’d seen your other half riffling through your drawers late last year – she reckons they were probably just trying to pinpoint your taste before dropping £££s on the hopefully perfect bling.
So which kind of bride do you think you’ll be? Classic and timeless? A finger-on-the-pulse fashionista? Or a wham-glam Hollywood siren? And more importantly, with the prospect of much ring finger flaunting, which nail colours will make it bling the best, because believe me, naked equals drab not fab! Here’s my pick….
Hooked on classics
You’ve pictured your bridal look since you were a little girl. A stunningly chic strapless gown like Monsoon’s Klara, which you’ll wear with a sophisticated chignon and stained red lips. It’s not about being expensive and showy; you prefer a more timeless and elegant look. Luckily your fiancé struck gold by selecting you a classic super-sparkly round diamond.
Your perfect ring tone: Ciate Paint Pots in Couture, £9, a picture of elegance in muted pink
The aisle will become your very own catwalk as you sashay towards your groom, gathering green-eyed monster looks for your drop-dead-gorgeous lace Beverley gown by Claire Pettibone. They’ve already clocked the Princess Cut diamond twinkling away on your finger.
Your perfect ring tone: Christian Louboutin Miss Mars Nail Colour, £36, a totally lust-worthy silver grey shot with blue shimmer
You’re craving a bridal look that oozes hollywood glamour. A stunning silk Truly Zac Posen lace corset ball gown tops your wish list. Your bridal icons include Liz Taylor and Grace Kelly, both of whom flaunted emerald cut engagement rings – just like you!
Your perfect ring tone: Barry M Molten Metals in Copper Mine, £3.99, a covetable rose shimmer with an added injection of gold
Never one to have her nails naked, I’m loving all the new season’s colours, especially the metallics. S’cuse the pun but they’re ore-some! I mean, be still my beating heart but “love is” the Louboutin. Let me know what you think? And obvs if the question got popped!
