Last month, I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on A CUP OF JO  to pick out a piece of jewelry of my choice from by boe. Getting that email was soo exciting! The first and only blog giveaway I’ve ever won (they’re not rigged after all! ; ) ).

Of course, I documented the always fun package-opening so you can experience it with me. haha. There is something so satisfying about pretty packaging.

After literal hours of browsing, analyzing, and friend-consulting, I chose the Amazon necklace in sterling silver.

Here’s my goofy mirror shot showing off my bling.

It definitely has a handmade aesthetic (I even had to do an easy repair job when one of the arms detached from the chain) but I do like it a lot! I’m still finding outfits that work best with it and I might even work my way up to layering with it one day. I’ve never been a long necklace person so there is a slight learning curve. : )

Thanks so much to Jo and by boe for my necklace! It was a thrill to win and pick out my new jewelry. It was a great intro to by boe and I have bookmarked them for later. Sterling silver jewelry is really difficult to find at a decent price, so I’ll be back!

Mani Mania Part 2

Stamped and dotted

These were my graduation nails. 🙂 I didn’t put much too much thought into them, but I ended up loving them for the occasion. They seemed appropriate for beginning a fresh chapter of my life.

4th of July

These ended up looking rather Egyptian/80s

Lace print

Confettiesque

Playing around with nail art polishes

Nude dots & stripes

Another nude mani that I first painted  with gold to look dipped. . .

. . . then topped that with gold & copper glitter. Reminds me of champagne bubbles.

Fuchsia and glitter accent

Bubblegum pink & black leopard  over super foiled  silver

Black tips over shimmering hot pink

Still more to come! Wow. If you want to see more crazy nails, check out my Pinterest board Nail Fun. There are some really talented artists out there!

Polish: New Years

Hey guys!

Here’s a quick post with my New Years nails. I got to attend a New Year’s Eve wedding, which was quite fun! The favors were New Years tiaras for the girls and top hats for the guys, along with party horns to help ring in the new year. It was a fun night!

This is another mani I did a while back using my beloved Konad and a matte topcoat.

Au revoir, until next time!
