When Jewelry and Nail Polish Collide...

Dress, Rebecca Taylor; jewelry by BaubleBar

If you have spent any time on this blog, it comes as no surprise that jewelry and nail polish are two of my favorite things. So I was super, beyond excited when BaubleBar and Essie asked me to be a part of their new collaboration.

The cool new collab (which you can check out here) let's you create an awesome, personalized gift set (either for a friend or, duh, yourself) made up of an Essie polish and coordinating bangle, and then two additional bracelets that you select yourself. The whole set costs $50 and comes in a cute bag. Pretty great, right?

For the photo shoot above, I chose the "Where's My Chauffeur" duo, which includes this beautiful robin's egg blue polish (which I, of course, finished off with pink glitter at the tips--close up below) and the matching blue-and-bling bangle. I then added a stack of other fun sparkly BaubleBar bracelets, my favorite new LBD from Rebecca Taylor (I die for the perforated leather accents!), and this insanely awesome necklace that I borrowed from BaubleBar (they've been sold out forever and I am praying they get back in stock soon!).

Big thanks to everyone involved with this project! It's such a cool, different gift idea, and I had so much fun. Plus, it was so flattering to be featured alongside some of my favorite girls including Lori, Jenn, and Grace

So, take a look and let me know what your favorite combo is. Are you more of a "Leading Lady" or a "Butler Please" type of girl? And how would you style your set? Tell me in the comments below!

I about died when I saw you featured! How fun! I can't decide between Leading Lady and Where's My Chauffer.. maybe both ;)

Beyond Cozy, for sure. I'm wearing that polish now and it is amazing. Very fine silver and gold glitter. A must have for sparkle lovers. I'd pair it with the midnight gem bangle and the smoke id bracelet.
