Match Your Mani To Your Engagement Ring

by Heather Hall

Engaged girls know as soon as you make that announcement everyone (from your co-workers to the barista who sells you your morning coffee) is going to make a grab for your left hand. Your gorgeous new engagement ring is the first thing people notice and want to see. With all that attention on your hand, it's time to start seriously thinking about the state of your nails. Get inspired with these stunning manicures.

Here's how you know if you're a glam girl — Step 1: look in the mirror, are you wearing at least 3 pieces of sparkly jewelry? Step 2: look down at your finger, did you just blind yourself? If you answered yes to both, then you are indeed a glam bride and you'll need an equally glam mani. Rhinestones and glitter will do the trick.

You're not so traditional (which is why your groom surprised you with a few black diamonds on the band), so make your nails just as eye-catching with a daring black and platinum color combo.
