I’ve been on an excruciating No-Buy for the last six weeks in preparation for later today…when the hubs and I go sign many, many papers promising to pay many, many dollars for many, many years. In return, we get to live in our dream home, so it’s not a bad trade-off. Of course, my thoughts immediately turn to what mani I will wear for the occasion.
I admit it. I splurged. Because I can get most professional polish (Zoya, OPI, Essie, etc.) deeply discounted with my nail tech license, it pains me to pay $14 for a bottle of Butter London. But I love it. So my celebratory mani is Dodgy Barnett from the Fall/Winter 2012 Collection. It’s the perfect shade for signing my life away. A cross between a conservative classic gray and a highly holographic silver. Buying a house never looked so good! I took lots of pics because this polish looks different in every light.
First up is the conservative indoor indirect lighting shot…appropriately subdued for today’s serious indoor lighting occasion.
Occasionally though, you can catch a glimpse of the holo finish.
Indoor shot under a daylight lamp…getting crazy.
And finally full sunlight…time to party. LOL

This polish is so versatile; you’d hardly know it was the same one from the first pic to the last! Awesome. This is the first mani in the history of this blog I shall file in Work, Play and Polish. And so will go the progression of my day – serious to celebratory.
Anyone else put a ridiculous amount of thought into a mani for a special occasion?
