Ulta Made Me Do It…

Every time I turn around Ulta is having a sale of some sort. 20% off, buy one/get one half off, $5.00 off your purchase, etc. Not to mention the fact that you can gain so many points and get money off your purchases as well.  Needless to say that I used this opportunity to pick up a few Sally Hansen nail polishes that were on my wish list:

Blue My Mind (Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure)

Blue My Mind is absolutely gorgeous!!! It reminds me of China Glaze’s Frostbite, which is probably why it caught my eye. I am a sucker for blue nail polishes and this is no exception. The formula is amazing and the color payoff is wonderful. But that price! It retails for about $8, which is kind of expensive for a drugstore nail polish, but I think its well worth it.

Dive In (Sally Hansen Triple Shine)

Dive In is much more subtle than I was expecting, but its a beautiful color nonetheless. The first coat was a bit thin and streaky, but I only needed two coats to achieve the look in the photo above. Sally Hansen has a lot of vibrant colors in this particular line so if you are in need of a super pigmented color, check it out!

Are you a fan of Sally Hansen nail polishes? Is there any particular line that you like? I looking forward to trying more colors!! I hope you all are enjoying your week!! xx

Revlon Parfumerie: African Tea Rose

Revlon’s new Parfumerie nail polishes are adorable!! While I am not wild about this particular color (looks better here than it does in natural lighting), I have to say that the formulas and scents of these polishes are on point. Check out the swatches below:

And how cute is this bottle?! Not to mention that my nails literally smelled like roses (not the stinky ones either). for an entire day. This is going to sound weird, but I could not stop smelling my nails when I was wearing this color…I love the scent! The thing is though, it smells like regular nail polish up until your nails dry. So don’t go smelling these in the drugstore…Lol

If you’d like to try these nail polishes out, they are actually on sale at Ulta right now for buy one, get one 50% off. They have a wide range of colors that I’m sure will fit your taste, and they retail for $5.99 each. Have any of you gals tried this nail polish yet? If so, what did you think? Lately, I’ve been trying to get more into drugstore nail polishes since they are a lot more affordable.

Side Note: Is your week dragging as slowly as mine!? I am so ready for this holiday weekend! Talk to you all soon! xx

Ulta Haul

20130916-111315.jpg

I haven’t really been in the shopping mood recently (I’ve only been to the mall like once in the past several weeks), but I was excited to go to Ulta with my mom and my sister Sunday. I picked up a few things that I’ve been wanting to try and other products that I have used up and wanted to replenish.

So I bought two Maybelline lipsticks from their Sensational Vivids line. Wild Rose (on the left) and On Fire Red (on the right) were my picks. I also picked up two of Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lip glosses in Snow Pink and Sugar Violet. I had Sugar Violet already but it’s practically gone now.

Of course, I had to pick up my favorite nail polish remover, which is made by Ulta. I am telling you, all you have to do is stick your nails in and they come out clean with very little work. Love this remover! And yes, I needed two!

All Maybelline and Revlon products were buy one, get one 50% off so I got a pretty good deal on these lippies. I also had a $3.50 off coupon, which always helps. There were a ton of things on sale, so you may want to check out your local Ulta stores when you get a chance.

I hope everyone is enjoying their week! xx

Nordy Girl Favorites

DSCN0505

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
