Girls Getting Hand Lifts for Better Engagement Ring Selfies

Pin It
Stop it right this instant. In case the endless flow of selfies on every social media feed you have isn't indication enough that the world is full of self-absorbed egomaniacs, this is the definitive proof you've been waiting for.

Girls are dropping $1200 on "hand-lifts" so they can take better engagement ring selfies. Yes, seriously. "What we're doing today is basically using a filler called juvederm and it lasts nine months," a doctor who performs the procedure told Pix11 news. So, #nofilter doesn't necessarily mean #nofiller...

"I never liked how my hands looked," one woman who wants the procedure explained. "I always thought my hands were a little boyish growing up so I figured why not."

We have so many questions about this. If the procedure lasts nine months, do you get it when things are going well in your relationship and just hope like hell that your boyfriend proposes within that timeframe?

Every social-media savvy person knows that you have a few seconds after you say "yes" to make it Instagram official with the engagement ring selfie, so this is clearly something that requires a bit of pre-planning.

Heck, if you're gonna be that vain, why not just spend the money on a ring upgrade? Then nobody would be looking at your veiny hands or your untrimmed talons.

All of this really kills the romance behind the whole engagement thing. Shakespeare is probably rolling over in his grave as we speak.
