21 Engagement Nail Ideas, As Seen on Our Favorite Celebs


In the era of Instagram announcement posts, with ring finger hand on full display, it’s natural to start planning a nail strategy for when your partner pops the big question. Engagement nails tend to be on the minimalist side—think French manicures or neutral shades—says celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik whose clientele includes Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez. But it’s your special day (or, the run-up to your special day), so we say the rules are yours to make. Nail artist Brittney Boyce counts Olivia Rodrigo, Megan Fox, and Kim Kardashian as regular clients, and she reports seeing more experimentation with color and design. The best engagement nail, she says, is the one you love. “This all just comes down to personal style,” she says. For some, that’s a short natural nail. For others, it’s the Swarovski-encrusted nails J.Lo recently wore. So whether you’ve already found your forever person or are still using those crystals to attract him, her, or them into your life, it’s never too early to start brainstorming. Below are 21 engagement nail ideas to get those glam creative juices flowing. You’ll need this for when you book that nail salon appointment.

Nail Ideas

Nice and Nude

  1. A throwback to Margot Robbie’s Oscar nails in 2021, manicurist Tom Bachik went nude. If you want length but don’t have natural nails, try Apres Gel-X Extensions.

Basic Neutral

  1. When it comes to engagement manicures, neutral shades are foolproof—they match everything. This creamy tan acrylic will make any engagement ring stand out.

French Tips

  1. If you’re seeking a subtle design to elevate a bare base, opt for the classic French mani. Bachik painted thick white lines along the tips of Nicola Peltz Beckham’s long square nails for a dynamic look.

Bronze Effect

  1. We’re all about metallic sheens, but there’s something really warm about bronze. Choose this if you’re looking to put a unique spin on a basic bare or brown nail shade.

Classic Red

  1. Looking for some color? Vibrant and alluring, Bachik’s cherry red nail look on Michelle Williams makes for the ideal engagement mani.
