I second this, but would add that I think it applies to any and all posts!

I am totally in agreeance too!  Society puts these thoughts in our heads that we need to be perfect, painted, and hairless.  Then we sometimes shame each other to keep those dilussions going.  Stop the maddness!  Be yourself and be ok with it

Or apologizing because the picture is huge… I like the big pictures. You can see the detail.

cpick:  LOL that’s what I’m sayin! Although mine is pretty much non-existent and blonde so it’s never crossed my mind!

I agree with the post though for sure!! We’re human, not perfect!!

Knuckle hair is normal, so are less than perfect cuticles.

Chipped nail polish can be removed. I don’t think women need to be perfectly polished and groomed at all times but chipped nail polish is just plain sloppy.

RedheadMeggs:  I don’t even have the blonde excuse! It just never occurred to me as a thing to do

Agreed! Half the time I’m too busy looking at the ring to notice any of those things anyway! Plus let’s be honest no one maintains their hands daily. Keep it real ladies!!

Ellyson:  I think it started when there was a rash of threads about how “gross” it is to see photos of people’s hands that are not perfectly polished and hair-free. Yes, there were whole threads devoted to it. Not to mention the “Share your ring photo with fresh polish!” “Share your ring with new manicure!” etc.

My nails are sometimes dirty, mostly go unpolished, and are only perfectly manicured every couple of months. Guess what? I still love my ring, and I still love my hands!

RedheadMeggs:  cpick:  I’m very much a brunette and it never ocurred to me to remove my knuckle hair. Then again, mine are not noticeable at all even though they are brown…unless I shove my knuckles into someone’s eye or take a super zoomed in picture.

nadnuk:  I’ve seen that stuff and think it’s really uncalled for.
