Graduation Day mani with aEngland Princess Sabra (Tristam Eyes)

Good evening everyone, I hope you're having an absolutely wonderful end of the world evening! I'm waiting for my sister to come over to spend some time together "in case" and since this is the first time I've had to sit down since Monday, I wanted to stop by and say hello to all of you lovelies! <3

As I'm sure you've heard me mention many times before, this past Tuesday was my graduation and for once I was able to prepare a manicure for a special occasion. I don't remember how or when I got the time... Oh yeah, it was Tuesday morning. :) I didn't get a spare moment to take pictures the day of so there is a little tipwear if you look closely, but who cares. They puppies are pretty!

For graduation I wore a burnished gold dress with black birds on it, belted at the waist with a cobalt blue patent leather belt, a cobalt scarf, black chevron tights, and black suede Calvin Klein pumps. Well, I wanted to wear the pumps but settled for a more sensible patent and suede wedge for practicality. It was a good decision considering there was roughly three hours of standing before being seated after the processional. My university college was the last into the venue so we stood waiting forever. Not to mention, we were the largest mid-term graduating class my uni has ever had. Oh, and Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives spoke at my ceremony after being conferred an honorary doctorate. Umm... I had no idea he went to UNLV. OH, and the best part?! The University President hi-fived me on our walk out of the venue. So cool.

Anyway, not to detract from the pattern my dress (that no one but my friends saw since it was covered by my red robes) I waited to stamp until Wednesday. I demonstrated my stamping technique to my mom and sister since they've had problems with their stamper back home. Here's Princess Sabra by herself, as I wore her to my ceremony. Isn't she purdy?

I hope you all have a blast celebrating our "last night on Earth," just be safe and remember that there might actually be a tomorrow! ;) I'm hoping to bring you all a few more Christmas manicures - one at least - before the big day, but if I don't get to before hand... Merry Christmas everyone! Or, Happy Holidays to you and yours if you celebrate differently than I!

xoxo J
