Engagement-Ready Nails: Prep Your Tips To Be Shown Off!

deb-embed
We've already told you that everyone is engaged. No, really, everyone. And, if you think that a nice piece of ice could be in your imminent future (mazel tov in advance!), let us dispense a little bit of advice: You're going to want to work on your hands now. Yes, it's selfish and superficial, and it pales in importance when compared to the prospect of spending your life with another person. Obvious criticisms aside, when that new rock is on your hand, your fingers are going to be very popular — this is one time when it's absolutely worth it to be a little extra mindful of your tips.
