Pomp, Circumstance, and a little Celebration

Hello all!

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away...I GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE! And when I did that...I asked Lilypad Laquer to make me some customs to commemorate this beautiful day. I let her do whatever she wanted I just wanted them to be called Pomp and Circumstance. So I couldn't wait to get these pretties in the mail. I'm the first person in my family to graduate from college (it only took me like 7 years hahaha) but I'm super proud of myself and wanted some polish to adorn my nails inspired by success. Little did I know there was an extra goodie hiding in the bag called Celebration. And it's like...whoa sparkles. I'm not releasing these to the world since they have a special place for me and I worked my arse off for them but I neeeeed to share the beauty. So I present to you...my customs: Pomp, Circumstance, and Celebration.

POMP

Pomp is a GORGEOUS, sparkly, rainbow, silver with purple shimmery micro glitters. Those little suckers are so hard to capture because the polish is so shimmery and bright and rainbow. But it's definitely a stunner. And I didn't know how badly I needed it in my life until I saw it.

CIRCUMSTANCE

Well now Nicole knows me quite well. Purple is kind of my thang. And this is just tantalizing. It's a purple holo with silver flakies with makes the polish super shimmer in the sun. Like someone shining a mirror in your face. It also has some blueish shimmer in it if you look real close. It's AWESOME!

CELEBRATION

This little goodie BLINGS EVERYTHING! And it's a perfect glitter topper for Circumstance. It's just so freaking twinkly and awesome. There are certain things I just wanna bathe in. This is one of those things.

ITS GRADIENT TIME! Since I've learned how to gradient...I want to gradient all the things. Because it's just better that way. I gradiented with Pomp and Circumstance and it was AWESOME. Creepy things happened when I did this to my nails. My coworker thought I was wearing a thermal polish and definitely started rubbing my nails...............I let her know it wasn't a thermal. She stopped. The end.

Below you can REALLY see those purple shimmers from Pomp. It took me a while to try to capture those buggers.


I think Pomp, Circumstance, and Celebration were a great gift to myself (well from my mom) for the long road of higher education. I don't wanna do homework ever again. It'll take me a while to read a book for fun. I would like to forget anything I learned in accounting as quickly as possible because it hurts my brain. But these...these polishes make my brain feel good. They make my brain proud. 

Anyway, I just had to share. Because I'm proud.

Until next time, stay famous!
