1. Get a Manicure
You want your beautiful ring to be the focus of the photos, not your chipped nail polish and ragged cuticles. A soft pink polish is always a safe choice, but don't be afraid to choose a bold color that reflects your personality instead. You can also add an accent, like a crystal or an overlay, on your ring finger to really make it pop. Make sure to moisturize your hands right before the picture, and try this trick for picture-perfect hands: "Hold your hand up and count to 12 before moving into the perfect position; your veins and arteries will be less noticeable, and your skin tone will look less red. This is a longtime trick of hand models," suggests LaFonn Jewerly.
