Flitwicks! Jewelry Subscription Box Review | February 2016

Okay so I know this is a beauty blog and I focus on reviewing beauty products and beauty subscription boxes. But, there’s nothing wrong with a little switch up every not and then. Have you ever heard of Flitwicks? Before I came across it on a blog recently, I had never heard of it. But, as soon as I saw it, I was in love and had to subscribe! I thought it was a cool concept for a reasonable price and since I love jewelry so much, why not? And not only that, I saw pictures of the pieces in the January box and was SOLD! Flitwicks is an affordable subscription box that provides three handpicked, stylish, quality jewelry pieces for $12 a month.

After seeing the jewelry that was in the January box online, I couldn’t wait to see what the February box would have in store for me! I wasn’t surprised to see that each jewelry piece incorporated something related to love, seeing how February is the month of love.

My favorite piece was the “love” ring! It is super cute and I am all for simple jewelry these days. An added bonus is the ring is adjustable, which is perfect for me because my fingers are so small! I also liked the necklace. I liked the design and the small hearts hanging at the end of the silver strands. I look forward to wearing it with a v-neck blouse. Unfortunately, I was not a fan of the earrings. To me, the dangling hearts make these earrings a little young for me. In my opinion, they are better suited for a young girl in her teens, not mid-20s. Since I won’t wear them, I’ll give them to one of my younger cousins so that they do not go to waste.

Check out the pieces below and let me know what your favorite piece of jewelry is in the comments!

I thought the simple blue jewelry bag was really cute!

Nails of the Week 

I love to paint my nails and I paint them at least once a week. Therefore, I would like to keep you all in the know about the polishes that I am wearing each week (or as I change them)…especially since it is a main topic of this blog. I hope you all will enjoy this weekly series! And with no further ado, let’s talk about my polish choices for this week!

I was in a silvery type mood this weekend, so I decided to go with a gray silver from SquareHue’s 2000 Decades Collection which shipped out this month. It is called Hurricane. It only took two coats to get the opacity that I have and because SquareHue has an awesome formula, it will last me all week with very minimal chipping. Their polishes are literally the best quality ever! Head over to their website now to subscribe. You won’t regret it! Also, I’ll be reviewing their boxes monthly, starting next month. 🙂

On my accent nail, I used China Glaze in Polarized. I bought this polish a few months ago on sale at Sally Beauty Supply. This is my first time actually using it. With some glitter polishes, it is hard to get the glitter to actually apply to your nails. You end up with a clear coat with a few specks of glitter in it. Not the case with this polish. The glitter applied pretty thick and I only applied a second coat to get a full cover over the SquareHue base coat that I used. The glitter is holographic and reflects every color of the rainbow when the light hits it. Unfortunately, the glitter doesn’t show up well in the picture. Blah! But in person it’s amazing which is why I may be wearing this for New Year’s! We shall see!

What do you think about my nails for this week? Are you a silver nail kind of girl?
