Have you ever noticed that so many people seem to have perfectly manicured hands when posting their super adorable, just-engaged pics? Some might have sensed a proposal was coming and made it a point to keep their manicures up-to-date, so that must be a thing – and probably so is putting off taking those “impromptu” pics until they can sit down with a bottle of polish – but what about people who don’t have the time to do either?
If you fall into the latter camp and find yourself suddenly engaged with fingernails not worthy of Instagram, you’d better hope you have a friend (or cousin) like Jenna here to come to your rescue.
She was there when her cousin Diana’s boyfriend popped the question (and Diana said yes) but the girls wondered what to do about a picture, since it had been a while since Diana had time to pamper her hands.
“Diana is a super hardworking nurse so she rarely ever gets her nails done,” Jenna told Scary Mommy. “We were really excited about taking some photos to help her show off her ring, but she was a bit hesitant about using her own hand since she hadn’t gotten a mani.”
They debated waiting while they painted (and dried) her nails, but in the end, were too excited – and Jenna had a better idea.
She offered her own hand, classic red manicure included.
Honestly, the pictures turned out adorable – no one would have known had they not shared the full shot (which has now gone totally viral, for good reason).
The Internet loved it, of course, with everyone applauding Jenna’s solidarity and hoping that, when their time comes, they have someone like Jenna there to make the moment picture perfect.
I think we all want that every day, not just on the day we say yes!
