Is it just me or does anyone else ever get hand envy when checking out other bees’ ring pictures?
I hope it’s not just me
I love looking at all the beautiful rings I’ve seen on here but recently I’ve become rather envious of some lovely looking hands I’ve seen and it makes me a little despondent about my own hands/fingers.
I have major hand envy and keep wondering whether my rings would look better if my hands were smaller/slimmer.
I made the mistake of mentioning this to SO. When he stops laughing he might comfort me and tell me I’m not going crazy.
Anyone else get secret hand envy?

@hislittlepenguin: I get nail envy. I have nice hands, but I see these Bees with beautiful, natural nails and I find myself willing my easily-broken nails to just get their shit together and stay long! Lol

It’s never occured to me but maybe I’ll start noticing it now haha.

@hislittlepenguin: Trust me; we’re in the same boat! I have a size 6.5 ring finger and I feel like I have hulk fingers in comparison to some ladies here. Don’t even get me started on shoe size envy – NOTHING comes in a size 11! Anyway, haha yes I feel your pain. One thing that drives me nuts is how a one carat gives great finger coverage on small fingers but on my size 6.5 it doesn’t give the same WOW factor.

@hislittlepenguin: I notice people’s hands ALL the time! I get jealous of the nice looking ones. I Feel like I have chunky, stubby hands. haha

@s2bmrscook: I get nail envy too. I always get compliments on my long, slim fingers but my nails aren’t so great. I keep them short and painted usually so they’re ok.. but I wish I could rock the long nails look without getting fakes.

My hands have started showing my age and I sort of hate them. 🙁

I definitely wish I had longer, thinner fingers! I do sometimes notice how beautiful other Bee’s hands are, in comparison to mine. But then, I’m a hand person. It’s one of the first things I notice about men too. I don’t think you’re strange at all…probably because I’m strange myself! 😉

I had the opposite experience… I used to hate my big hands but after seeing photos of smaller hands/ shorter fingers I’ve begun to appreciate the length for the long and lean aspect. I also maintain my nails a with regular gel manicures so all in all I’m good with what I’ve got. And I hope that didn’t come off mean or annoying…. There are plenty of other body parts I get major envy over…. Um hello THIGHS

@hislittlepenguin: This reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend in junior high school. We were complaining about our bodies, because that’s what 13 year old girls do for sport, and I commented that I wished I could send all the fat in my body to my feet. Who cares if you have fat feet? My feet are the skinniest part of my body, sometimes I bend my toes and think about how I look like the crypt keeper, totally unfair. This is pretty irrelevent to your post but it made me smile.
I think we all have some part of us that we don’t like. I bet the girls with the skinny fingers look longingly at a feature of yours and wish they could have hislittlepenguin’s ____.

All the time. I have short stubby fingers that look chubby even though I’m not, and chopped off nails shorter than my fingertip because my nails don’t grow right. My hands look like toddler hands. I am so jealous of the long slender fingers and nice nails I always see in ring posts.

I have been told I have baby hands. They are short and stubby! Luckily they’re somewhat thin though, so they aren’t too out of whack. My nails also suck. They are also short and stubby. They break easily too, so I can never manage to grow them out much. I totally get hand envy!
It’s not like I abhor my hand though. It’s more of a “Drats, I totally can’t wear this gorgeous thick ring on this stubby finger” and “Oh, my nails look like an old rancher’s again.”
And then I move on with my life.

I like my hands, so I’ve never really felt hand envy.
I do however feel nail envy sometimes. I’m usually too lazy to paint them in some fantastical design, or have beautiful false nails.

@hislittlepenguin: I kind of do this as well. I’m left-handed, and I write a lot … So I have this callous (Or is it callus in this context? Dictionary.com said both were fine, so whatever.) on my middle finger from tightly gripping my writing utensils. It kind of puffs out a bit, and I think it’s pretty ugly. My right hand is much “prettier” than my left, but of course I don’t wear my ring on that hand. Haha.
