Flattering Nail Polishes To Show Off Your Engagement Ring
You'll be showing off that new sparkler quite a bit over the next few months in-person and in photos (hello, Instagram!). Flattering polishes from OPI, RGB, YSL, and more will allow your enagagement ring to it shine its brightest.
If Your Setting Is Platinum
Midnight blue will set off this cool tone perfectly. Try Armani Nail Lacquer in Bleu d’Armani ($20; giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com).
If Your Setting Is Gold
Embrace one of winter’s hottest trends, pastels! Try Mac in Snob ($16; maccosmetics.com).
If Your Setting Is Rose Gold
Go unexpected and paint your tips a bright pop of violet. Try YSL no. 14 Violine Surrealiste ($25 at yslbeautyus.com).
If You Have a Sapphire Stone
When your gem is the choice of royals, your nails should be classic. Go for a true brick red. Try Tom Ford Smoke ($32 at neimanmarcus.com).
If You Have an Emerald Stone
A rose gold metallic manicure is the perfect compliment. Try RGB Rose Gold ($18 at rgbcosmetics.com).
If You Have a Canary Yellow Diamond
Let this vivid citron steal the spotlight and keep your nails dramatic but dark. Try OPI Lincoln Park After Dark ($6.99 at amazon.com). Bonus: they also make this shade in a long-lasting gel formula.
A Little Bit of Nail Art
If you want to get a little more detailed, celebrity manicurist Carla Kay—who happens to paint the tips of the hottest hands in Hollywood like Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Simpson and Eva Longoria—recommends an opaque nude like Chanel Inattendo ($27; chanel.com) with a black matte moon closest to the cuticle.
We want to see that hand! Instagram your results and add #martharings to show off your gorgeous polish-ring combo.
