While men are supposed to pop the question in the most romantic way possible, women are supposed to look picture perfect for the perfect engagement picture. Again, this is what is drilled into us, subliminally and otherwise.
So when a Melbourne woman made her boyfriend the happiest man in the world by saying yes to his marriage proposal, a perfect 'just engaged' picture was de rigeur. Alas though, the bride-to-be hadn't had her nails done, and so naturally she couldn't post a picture of her ring finger. Quelle horreur.
Thankfully, her cousin was present at the happy scene to lend her a hand. Literally. @goodgaljenjen, the Twitter user who uploaded pictures of the happy couple, acted as a proxy hand model by slipping on her cousn's new ring and posing strategically with the actual fiancee and her fiance. And of course, there was a BTS shot as well.

The picture(s) quickly went viral with close to a million likes at the time of this writing. Many people appreciated the sisters' solidarity, while others just found the situation hilarious.

A girl once told me “make sure I have my nails done if you ever ask to marry me” I knew she wasn’t the one... but that’s another story for another day.— King Boe Christ ♚🙌🏿 (@KingBoeChrist) November 3, 2018
In this case you the realest cousin to ever do it. You get a throne at the reunion
Other couples saw themselves doing the same thing.
