Getting engaged is one of the highlights of a woman’s life so it is only understandable that brides-to-be would want to immortalize the moment by posting it on social media. It is also a great way to share the news with family and friends! This past month alone, we have seen a lot of our favorite celebrities like Jessie Mendiola, Melissa Gohing, and Glaiza De Castro shared their engagement announcement on Instagram.

Aside from the dream-like fairytale setting with breathtaking landscape backgrounds of mountains and beaches, what is the common denominator between these IG posts? The ring, of course! If you are planning to post an engagement ring selfie, you might want to consider getting a matching manicure at your favorite nail salon first.

It might seem like a small detail, but a great manicure will make sure the bride-to-be’s nails are picture-perfect to show off an engagement ring. A classic nude nail can definitely match any type of ring, but depending on the type of metal and stone, you can also try out different shades of polish that would for sure make your ring shine more on photos!

In this blog post, we will help you decide what the best manicure you should get to show off your engagement ring and wedding ring.

What colors would match your ring?

Yellow Gold Rings

Gold is a classic and timeless choice for a ring. It is an extremely versatile metal which is why it is often commonly used for jewelry. You can pair gold rings with warm colors like peach or light pink since they complement its yellow tint. Nude or champagne shades work well also in giving it an elegant look!

White Gold Rings

White gold rings are more popular than yellow gold rings because of their silvery-white brightness. They are better to partner with darker shades such as purple, crimson, midnight blue, or deep forest green with a subtle shine to enhance the appearance of the ring. a popular choice among engagement rings and wedding rings.

Rose Gold Rings

Rose gold rings are very fashion-forward, which speaks to the bride’s personal style. It has a warm and pink hue which can be paired with deep apple red nail polish to bring out the undertones of the ring. For a more subtle choice, go for pearly white or champagne colors! Our personal favorite though is pairing it with a glamorous ombre nail art with gems and stones.

Heirloom or Gemstone rings

It is such an honor to receive an heirloom engagement ring because of its inherent history. Most heirloom rings are very unique and can be a little tricky to pair because of the gemstone it usually bears but the best rule of thumb is to match the shade of your manicure to the gem. Deep jewel tones or metallic hues are recommended in order to draw the eye to the ring. For example, emerald rings can be paired with crimson nails, sapphire rings with a deep blue manicure and ruby rings can be paired with violet, crimson, or deep blue nail colors to provide contrast.
