One of my favorite things about going back to school was always shopping for school supplies and getting organized (total nerd, yet so OCD) Whether it’s school or the office, these glammed up versions of everyday essentials will make anyone excited for their first day.

Nail Caviar

Nail Caviar 11

With one of my biggest beauty faux pas being chipped nails, I’ve been hesitant to try the latest 3D nail trend. After spotting a metallic, pearlized version of the nail art at Urban Outfitters, I couldn’t resist.

Nail Caviar

I opted to make a subtle statement sporting the chic beads on a solo finger. The simple two-step process gives an instantly glam look. After adding two swipes of polish, dip nail into the caviar pot and let dry 15-20 minutes. I added a base coat and top coat to the nails I didn’t dip. I’m obsessed with this chic mani.

Heavy Metal - Metallic Trend

I’m all about the full blown metallics for Spring. It makes a great statement piece, to make any ensemble shine. Gold and bronze metallics make chic beach accessories, and silver is such a chic pairing with black & white or a pop of neon.

It may not feel like the Holiday season just yet (today it was almost 70 degrees!) But lately, I’ve found myself leaning towards cozy plaids, and statement metallics. (oh and a festive red lip!.. love Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous in Inimitable)

Julep Maven: November

This month’s pick for the Julep Maven program is American Beauty. The set came with colors Stefani and Lynn, and an essential cuticle oil.

 A fun surprise was the nail glitter pots included in the set. How cute is this?

I decided to try this peachy pink pair first.

One of the perks of being a maven is discounted products. I also snagged this goodies. Harley, O’Canada, and a base coat.

Have you joined Julep Maven yet? What colors are your loving?

Last week, I Instagramed my budget buys of metallic denim, each under $27. I’ve been on the lookout for a great pair of metallic denim this season. I happened to be in Target the other day, and spotted these fabulous shimmery black skinnies. The sparkling sheen gives off a coated denim look. These skinny jeans are so comfortable, I could sleep in them. Did I mention they’re under $23? Major fab find.
