At June’s Close

Holy cannoli, can you believe today is the last day of June?  My summer is just flying by!  With the Fourth coming up, at least I’ll get to enjoy some time off!  As always, here are some of my favorite June moments in instagram form:

Julep Maven: May & Unboxing!

Well, well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve featured a Julep Maven box, hasn’t it?  That’s because Maven now lets you skip months.  It’s been wonderful for my wallet and let’s be honest, I have far too much nail polish!  March and April just didn’t have any colors that grabbed me, but May was another story.  Here’s what I got:

Jessica | Described as a soft baby blue crème, I would classify this as more of a muted sky. It’s darker than “baby blue” if you ask me, and it’s almost identical to one of my favorite Revlon shades, Dreamer.

Vanna | Simply described as “magnolia crème,” I liked this off-white-ish shade even though I had no idea what to expect from magnolia. Magnolias do come in different colors, after all. I stand by what I said in my unboxing, this is a buttercream! It reads white from afar, but it’s got a peachy undertone— sometimes I pick up pink, sometimes yellow.

Nail Decals – Gold Anchors | This is pretty self-explanatory, but how cute are these stick-on nail decals going to be for summer? You know this girl is obsessed with anchors and all things nautical!

I also got: a free polish coupon, (try that code out for yourself!) and some salt water taffy… that I may actually eat!

So here’s a fun new thing… (more…)
