Nordy Girl Favorites

I have a bunch of beauty products and one accessory to tell you guys about today…

Nail Products

I previously tried samples of Bubble White, and finally decided to get the jar so that I could soak my nails on a more frequent basis. I love this stuff because it is a quick and easy way to prep your nails for an at home manicure. Bubble White cleans your nails and softens your cuticles, and it literally works in 5 minutes. Amazeballs! As for the hand cream…I was previously stuck on Soap & Glory’s Hand Food, which I still love, but I didn’t realize that Silk Elements sold a hand cream that is comparable and much more affordable. What I love about this particular hand cream is that it smells amazing and moisturizes my hands without making them feel greasy. And for a little over $3…Yes, I’ll take that! Lol…

Make Up

Lately, my make up has been super easy going: Brows.Mascara.Lip Gloss. These glosses from Sephora and Revlon have been giving me that super shiny look that I love. Unlike mac lip glosses, they are light…No crazy thinkness here, but a lot of shine, which is exactly what I need. And for my lashes I’ve been obsessed with this Lash Potion from Revlon. OMG yall!! The volume and length that I get from this mascara is unreal. I use at least 3 coats when putting on my make up. Lol…

Nail Polish

Pastels and bright pinks!! I’ve finally ventured away from blue (cream) nail polish, ladies…I thought I would try something a little different from what I usually wear. These three polishes are jellies, meaning that they are a bit on the sheer side but are buildable, and can easily be layered with glitter nail polish. Ever heard of a “jelly sandwich”? Well, that is when you put a layer of glitter in between two coats of jelly nail polish (I’ll be sure to post an example of one this week)…Well, these polishes are perfect for that sort of thing. Here are swatches of each:

Gargantuan Green Grape (L), Don’t Touch My Tutu (M), and You Drive Me Coconuts (R).

Accessory

Finally, I have been dying to tell you all about this eye glass case from Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale. This is the only thing I bought from the sale and I am so in love with it. I swear I would probably buy anything that has “Nordy Girl” on it for the phrase alone. All I can say is this case is sooooo me…Period…

All Products Mentioned:

I hope you all enjoyed this post…If you’ve tried any of these items, let me know what you think of them. Talk to you all soon! xx
