Friends on Friday - PhD Defense Celebration!


Hi lovelies!

One of my dear friends defended her PhD thesis recently. She asked me to do her nails for the occasion, and of course I jumped at the opportunity! 



This is her holding her degree!!! I painted her nails with NYC "Full Metal Jacket" (she was wearing blingy gold pumps!) and then matte stamped with BPS white stamping polish and BC-08 stamping plate. I went for 'festive but subtle' and 'flashy but classy', if you know what I mean ;) 


Her sister was one of her paranymphs, wearing a blue dress, so I subtly matched her nails to both the dress and the occasion, using NYC "A Suitcase and a Donut" and BPS metallic blue stamping polish.


Her cousin was wearing blue as well, but was a little weary of the whole nail art thing, so I just painted them blue. (I'll get her next time! ;) )


I myself decided to wear this as a cheer-on mani!


Yeah, I had a bad nail break.. And no sun, so these are flash pics. This is two coats of Ms. Sparkle "Capricorn" with BPS gold stamping polish.


My friend was awesome. They asked tricky questions and she just knocked it out off the park every single time. So proud! I'm grateful that I was able to contribute to the beautiful day in a small way :)
