Wild Butterfly Boutique and Julep goodies!

I've been meaning to do this post for a while because I wanted to give a shout out to two people. First, Brooklyn Burton who runs This Little Blonde for having the giveaway I somehow one at the end of May and second to Wild Butterfly Boutique for sending me this beautiful turquoise teardrop necklace after I won!

I had been admiring their necklaces for a while (and entering a ton of giveaways to win one) and I was so excited when I finally did! I've been loving statement necklaces lately, and this one is beautiful and a perfect addition to my (hopefully) growing collection. 

Julep was also having a sale recently, so I picked up a few polishes for only $4 each. 

They're so pretty!
I picked out Lucy, a "modern, dark burgundy creme": 

Renee, a "Spring lilac creme":

And Candy, a "Grape rock candy nail glaze" which, for some reason, I didn't realize looked like this:

Obviously I need to pay better attention, because what I wanted was a dark purple, not a sheer purple. I'm working on trading this for something else.

I also traded away some of my Ipsy and Target Beauty Box items to get Nan, a "Nantucket red creme":

In other nail news, I painted my nails for the first time since I've been here with "Love Song" from Nicole by OPI's Selena Gomez Collection.

It was a pretty enough color that I made it work, but the formula on this was awful! I ended up with two coats, one incredibly thin on and one thicker, kind of gloopy one. It self-leveled, but it was really annoying to work with, and you could definitely see the coats.

For accent nails, I used Ulta's Pinata Yada Yada which, as I mentioned here, I'm officially obsessed with. 

I'm now wearing China Glaze's Aquadelic with Pinata Yada Yada for accents. Beautiful color, super easy to work with, and bright and blue for summer!

What jewelry and nail polish have you guys been loving lately?
