  • A woman named Jenna shared photos from the day her cousin, Diana, got engaged.
  • In one photo, it looked like the engagement ring was on Diana’s perfectly manicured hand as she leaned in to kiss her boyfriend, José.
  • The second photo showed that the hand in the photo actually belonged to Jenna, who wore the ring and raised her hand to make it appear as though it belonged to her cousin.
  • Jenna explained that Diana’s nails weren’t done, so she jumped in to make the photos look presentable.

A woman’s boyfriend proposed to her, but her nails weren’t done. So to show off the engagement ring in photos, she enlisted the help of her cousin.

In a now-viral Twitter post, a woman from Melbourne, Australia, named Jenna (@goodgaljenjen) posted two photos to celebrate her cousin’s milestone moment. One image showed a sparkling engagement on a perfectly manicured hand, seemingly belonging to the individual who accepted a proposal. However, the second, zoomed out photo showed that Jenna actually put the ring on her own hand, crouched, and posed for the shot.

“My cousin’s boyfriend proposed to her but she didn’t have her nails done,” Jenna wrote in the tweet.

In a thread, Jenna gave more insight into the hilarious moment. She explained that her cousin, Diana, is a nurse and “never has her nails done.” Her boyfriend, José, didn’t want to ask Diana to get a manicure in case that would make her suspicious.

Instead, he convinced Diana “that the celebration was for his parent’s wedding anniversary, before getting on his knees and revealing that it was all really for her.”

Twitter users couldn’t get enough of the photos, and praised Jenna for stepping up and helping her cousin appear presentable in the engagement photos.

José shared an additional photo on his Instagram story, showing the moment he got down on one knee.
