Marriage proposals are a major milestone and a huge commitment in any relationship. No matter the amount of sleuthing one has done, most times, the proposal is a total surprise, andÂ that’s the thing about surprises, they’re tough to prepare for.
Twitter user Jenna, was on the scene when her cousin’s boyfriend proposed. When her cousin was a bit mortified that her nails weren’t properly manicured for the standard “ring shot” she stepped in with her fresh mani to save the dayâit’s just all about the camera angles.

On the left, we see the happy couple and a woman showing off her new engagement ring. But on the right, we see her cousin using some gymnast level flexibility to fake the perfectly manicured shot.
When the post and image went viral, people were loving the cousin’s heroic and comedic gestureâpeople around the world asked their best friends: would you do this for me?
Would you do this for me????Â¿

Some Twitter users even warned their future fiancÃ©es that they had better wait until their nails are presentable and manicured before dropping down on one knee.
