POSTING a photo of your new engagement ring on social media has become the new norm.
Many women, who expect their partner to solve this question, keep a manicure in anticipation of the big moment.
Posting in the Facebook group “That’s it, I’m ring shaming,” one woman shared a photo of another woman showing off her engagement ring — and the comments were brutal.
The original post showed a large diamond engagement ring, as well as the user’s maroon acrylic nails, which included a checkered pattern on her middle and ring fingers.
The comments section described the manicure as a take on Burberry’s iconic tartan check design.
One user wrote: “‘Burberry’ nails are what get me.”
Another person replied: “It’s always people with big brand symbols who have never owned anything from that brand.”
No aspect of the image was exempt from criticism from Facebook users.
One commenter said: “Non-sticky nails, dated tiles and not one but TWO ugly rugs… OF COURSE they have a ring that reminds me of a face only a mother could love. I’ve been trying so hard to find one half-decent thing.” in this photo. I was very unsuccessful.”
“Ring… nails to match rug BYE girl. That’s not it miss madam,” wrote another user.
“Why can’t anyone be all one color anymore?” another person asked.
One user said: “I can’t tell which is worse: the ring or the nails.”
A fellow commenter took advantage of the unpopular nail design, writing: “Checkered nails are fun and awesome. Good distraction from that hideous excuse for a ring. I swear I’ll be amazed if I see another tic tac toe, I’m throwing.”
Another user seemed to really like the poster’s manicure, but they had another criticism.
“I hate that I actually love the nails, they’re kind of tacky, but they’re really neat. The ring? If I was designed with this on, I’d assume it was like $10 and I’m just trying to be impressed.” size,” they said.
