    This Is Possibly The Best Way To Do Your Nails When You Get Engaged

    "So, is that a yes?"

    Here are the tools you'll need:

    - Base coat

    - Black nail polish (we used Essie Licorice)

    - Matte top coat (we used OPI Matte Top Coat)

    - Metallic nail polish (we used Orly Rage)

    - Nail art striper brush

    - (optional) Pre-glued nails (we used Patricia Inspire nails)

    You can paint directly on your natural nail, or you can use pre-glued nails, which can make art much easier. Follow these instructions if you're going to use pre-glued nails.

    Step 1: Paint your nails with a clear base coat followed by two coats of black polish, then one coat of matte top coat.

    If you're using pre-glued nails, you can follow this technique for painting. Let the polish dry for about 10 minutes before continuing with art. If you don't allow enough dry time, the nail art may smudge the black polish.

    Step 2: Dip your striper brush into the metallic polish and start writing F-U-C-K on the top of your ring finger.

    Steady your painting hand by propping your forearm on the edge of a table. Use tiny strokes and go as slowly as you need.

    Step 3: Continuing with the metallic polish on the striper brush, paint the letters Y-E-S in the center of your ring finger nail.

    Make sure you leave enough room for an arrow underneath the word "yes."

    Step 4: Paint a vertical metallic line underneath the word "yes," stopping above the cuticle.

    To keep everything in the center, make sure the line lines up with the center of the letter "E." This line will be the center of your arrow.

    Step 5: Finish painting the arrow with one short line angling up from either side of the vertical line.

    Once the nail art has dried for about 20 minutes, you can paint on a matte top coat to make it last. That's it!

    Step 6 (optional): Use your badass nail art to announce your engagement via social media.
