Finally official... Dr. Loodie

A big chapter of my life has come to a close. I've been in school for a pretty long time and finally it's all done. I hesitated to post this yesterday for obvious reasons.

I wore Revlon - Royal during my dissertation defense. It didn't go unnoticed. A few members of my committee went for a drink afterwords and they brought it up. Unfortunately I did not take pictures of the manicure, however here is Revlon - Royal from an older post. This older picture is without top coat. My defense manicure was definitely shiny. 

Revlon - Royal
So that's my "big thing". I'm happy. Now I have to find a job. Oye!

P.S. If you're interested in what I studied, I touch on it a bit in this post. See #10

  1. That's a lovely shade. I quite like those deep blue polishes, they make a good base for designs for me. Good luck with the job hunting! I'm still trying to find one as well :)

  8. Wow! Congrats! I went back and read through that post and laughed as I usually do through your posts....but I still don't understand what it is you do. My brain can't handle all those big words, lol!

    You make me want to pull my Revlon Royal out of my eventual blog sale pile to wear again....but I got one of those dud bottles where all the pigment is at the bottom, so maybe not.

  26. CONGRATULATIONS! You should be very proud of your accomplishment. Went through it myself 30+ years ago.

    I have to say it was highly amusing to see your PhD annoucement side-by-side with nail polish comments; but, that's rather like life, the sublime and regular all jumbled together.

    Best wishes on the next phase.

  49. Congrats! I just found your blog searching for nail shaping tips. Hey, did you know that most of your pics aren't visible on an Android phone? I thought that it was just because I was reading old posts for the most part, but then I came here on my computer and everything seems to be working.
