A woman used her own hand to model her cousin’s engagement ring in a photo because her cousin “didn’t have her nails done”.

In a series of photos shared on Twitter, Jenna from Melbourne, Australia, can be seen kneeling next to her cousin and her boyfriend with her red manicured hand outstretched in front of them.

The first photo shows a close up of the couple’s faces, where it appears that Jenna’s hand wearing the engagement ring belongs to her cousin.

Since Jenna shared the photos on under the Twitter handle @goodgaljenjen, the post has garnered more than 158,000 retweets and 660,000 likes.

The caption to the post reads: “My cousin’s boyfriend proposed to her but she didn’t have her nails done lmao”

Many users commented on the post to say they didn’t initially notice anything wrong in the first picture, and congratulated Jenna on her quick-thinking.

“You are a real cousin for that one. You are what Kendrick and Rihanna sung about ‘Loyalty’,” one person wrote.

“Not all heroes wear capes,” another said.

Other people commenting on the post shared their worries about not having a manicure when their partner proposes.

“There is a lesson here. When a person is ready to propose, you must make sure that your partner's hands are in a condition that also says ‘I'm ready',” one person wrote.

“My husband suggested I pamper myself and get a manicure the night before he proposed. I should have known something was up,” another person wrote.
