Nails for engagement photo session?

Hi all,

My fiance and I are having are engagement session at the end of this month. I plan on getting my nails done (side note, since the start of the pandemic, has anyone gotten their nails done at a salon? I haven't and I'm a tad nervous, so just wanna know what to expect!). I usually get acrylics and have them coffin shaped. Since it'll be full on fall by then, I can't decide if I should do like a dark burgundy or a light neutral color. I am Latina so I'm quite tan, lol. I plan on wearing a navy blue dress for the formal ones, and maybe a white tank with jeans and a yellow cardigan for the other ones. Our photographer's style is very warm and rustic looking. Thank you!

    Choose a nail salon who follows the covid protocol. Mine has glass dividers now, between nail artist and between customers. Some requires recent negative swab test. Keep mask on. Don’t carry anything else than your credit card or cash. Wash your whole arms before you walk out. Hand sanitizer in car.


    I chose kind of fancy-neutral color, so I can still enjoy it after the event.

    I completely agree with all mentioned in the previous post! I have been able to upkeep my acrylics by going to a salon with same protocol.

    BELLE I love your nails, very well done.

    Yes; just ensure it’s a clean salon! I would call a head and see what their protocol is.

    I agree with everyone as well. My salon does a temperature check.

    I just got my nails done yesterday for my wedding tomorrow, and immediately upon entry you wash your hands. Masks are required, and they have glass dividers between each station, and in between you and the nail tech.

    Both color options sound really nice and flattering! I did a light neutral solid gel and wish I would've gone with something that had more contrast, but I'm super fair-skinned.

    Burgundy nails for the engagement shoot!! I agree with calling ahead to learn their protocols and restrictions. I've felt safe getting my nails done

    We got our nails done at my bachelorette weekend. The salon we went to was super clean. We all wore masks (guests and employees alike), plexiglass dividers were up at manicure stations, chairs were marked off to only seat every over chair.

    I got my nails done for my wedding last month and I felt very safe. I wouldn’t worry! For the color I don’t think you can go wrong with either! Burgundy is my favorite color to have my nails for fall, but the light neutral would look so good with your dress! Either will look great.

    While I think burgundy is stunning, you also want to make sure that your nail color doesn’t take attention away from your ring, which will be a focal point during the photo shoot! If you have bright nails, it might be a bit harder to focus on the sparkle of the ring.
