Diamonds for All Giveaway!

As many of you know, I got engaged over the Christmas holiday.  While both my fiance (so weird to say!) and I are Jewish, I can honestly say that this was a very special holiday season for both of us.

As requested, I bring to you the ring that he spent five months designing with the help of his and my mother.  In my opinion, it's just perfect: classic and fits my taste perfectly!


I thought I'd add a bonus shot of the way he proposed: inside the fifth Harry Potter book, Order of the Phoenix.  Because I used to figure skate and love the Harry Potter series, he proposed while we were ice skating in Vermont by hiding the ring inside the book (his father is an engineer and was able to carve out a slot in the book that fit the ring perfectly).  While my first reaction was "I can't believe you ruined a book!", I of course said yes, a blubbery, sobbing yes, but a yes nonetheless.


So, in light of my recent engagement, how best to celebrate than to give you all a chance to have something equally sparkly on your fingertips?


Featuring:
Pure Ice Party of Five
Pure Ice Material Girl

  5. Congratulations on your engagement! My boyfriend proposed to me before I became obsessed with polish, so my nails were bare.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Once again, congrats! I love the book/ring detail... He must have seen it on Pinterest :) He's a keeper :D

    ReplyDelete
  7. I wasn't that into nail polish when I got married, so I'm pretty sure they were naked! Congratulations and your ring is just beautiful!!

  8. Welll, I am coming up on my 10th wedding anniversary next month, so my wedding day polish was a french manicure ;-) Very popular "back then"! haha If I got married nowadays, with my polish obsession in full swing, it would be very different. I'd take forever to figure out what I would wear. I know one thing though, I 'd definitely do a baby blue polish on my toes for my 'something blue'!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Such a huge congratulations to you both!!! :D That is so incredibly sweet how he proposed to you, and he designed such a stunning ring for you. :) Wishing you both an amazingly wonderful life together!!! :'D

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would wear something pastel as a base layered over with a silver glitter polish :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Im not 100 percent sure.... I think dark polishes look dramatic on me, so If I have my dream dress then zoya toni on medium length nails with a black lace stamp. If not then I am currently pretty enamored with Models Own Blooboo with Indian Ocean over the top... Something blue!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Congratulations on your engagement!)
    It would be Orly- Star Spangled.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congratulations on your engagement! The ring is just gorgeous!


    I would love to wear a nice shimmering nude polish! I still haven't found that perfect polish yet but I am definitely on the hunt for it :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I didn't wear any polish. I had gel nails... Later I thought it would have been so much better with color on my nails, but too late. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Your ring is just beautiful! So glad you love it too - would have been horrible being as it was custom design if they got it wrong and it did not work right on your hand. It looks like one that will still work 30 yrs from now too and that's important - you are going to wear that for a long, long time. My sis 'said' she lost her's when it really was just too dated to wear it any more.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I wore Three coats OPI Canberra't Without You and two coats OPI Significant Other Color. http://allimcbally.blogspot.com/search/label/wedding It's the one at the bottom. It was so pretty.

  105. Congrats on your engagement! Such an exciting time in life, isn't it? It's been 28 years since I got engaged and almost 25 since I got married, but it was before I got into polish again so I'm sure my nails were bare at the time. For our renewal vows, since it'll be summer time (July) I'll probably do something either in neon with purple, blue, & green.

  108. since at weddings in my country we dont wear white dresses so the nail polish always matches the outfit and thats what i'll be doing.Also we have two days,one function from the bride's side and one from the groom.So there are two beautiful dresses,one always in shades of red or maroon so matching nail polish.And any other pretty color on the second day.I have decided on a french manicure for this day :)
