Zoya nail polish: Bevin (and a winner!)

When I was in middle school, I specifically remember buying a bottle of bright blue nail polish. I would paint my toes blue and then dab drops of white and yellow on my big toe to make daisies. So classy. Hey…I was 13 years old.

Nowadays, the thought of blue nail polish brings me back to that middle school self…which is why I had never tried one out. However, this month my Birchbox contained a mini bottle of Zoya’s Bevin (part of the TRUE spring collection) – it is a turqouise/blue shade. It definitely screams spring/summer, and once I painted it on my nails, I was hooked! The color is perfect for pedicure in preparation for a day at the pool or beach; the shade itself reminds me of the ocean. Ah…my favorite.

By the way, if you aren’t already familiar with Birchbox, it is a monthly subscription service for beauty products. For $10/month, you are sent a box filled with various samples (and sometimes full size products as well). I’ve only been a part of Birchbox for a few months now, but I’m enjoying it quite a bit – I love trying new things! Also – if you fill out product reviews (which only take a few moments each) for the items you receive each month, Birchbox rewards you with credits. You can save up your credits to redeem for full size products that you love – pretty great, right?

If you’d like to sign up for Birchbox, click here for a referral link!

Oh, and if that wasn’t enough to inspire you: May’s Birchbox is Gossip Girl themed – there will be samples from brands like Ojon, Dior, and stila…pretty great!

Speaking of nail polish and beauty products, I have one more thing to announce today – the winner of my Marshalls/Essie nail polish giveaway! The lucky lady is…

Congratulations Jen! You should be receiving an email from me shortly with instructions. If for some reason you don’t hear from me, shoot me an email at Thank you to EVERYONE who entered and supported me with my Marshalls feature – I really appreciate it!

      Glad I could point that out! You can really rack up a nice little collection of points over a few months if you take a few minutes to fill out the reviews! I did realize that you are only able to review items from the current month though – once the new month starts, the opportunity to review past items goes away! Incentive to test your items out I suppose!

    Love the nail polish – and so jealous I don’t have Birchbox and can’t get that Gossip Girl box!

      Is it bad to admit that I’ve never watched Gossip Girl? I have it on my instant Netflix queue though…I want to start watching it in my free time!
