We’ve rounded up eight stunning engagement manicure ideas, so your hands will be ready for their big FaceTime reveal or Instagram close-up. From French tips to subtle sparkles, you’re sure to fall in love with one of these gorgeous nail designs.
3D Bows and Watercolor
If minimalism isn’t your thing, you can have fun with texture and embellishments using a muted color palette, like this watercolor bow manicure. The watercolor design and shiny white bows on the accent nails give us total fairytale-wedding vibes.
Add some lowkey bling to your mani with tiny, dainty pearl embellishments. We love how this nail artist used a shimmery base polish to level up the subtle sparkle.
Baby Pink Polish
What better occasion than your engagement to lean into the sparkle and shine with your manicure? If you don’t want to commit to a full glitter set, you can contrast a clear or neutral base with sparkling French tips.
Super thin lines make for an updated take on a classic French manicure, aka the micro-French mani. For your engagement manicure, keep it classic with a light pink base and fine white tips.
