Hand & Nail Empties: April-June 2019


I’m really loving doing these empties posts quarterly! I have eight products to share with you today (although my list says I used up ten things… I did not keep two of the hand soap bottles, oops!) and none of them are base or top coats this time around. I have a bunch of those going at the moment, so definitely expect more of those to be reviewed in the future. Otherwise, if you are looking for some moisture or some clean for your hands and nails, come along! I grouped them by product type this time. Let me know if you like this format better, I used to just group the products together and post them in the order I used them up. I think putting like things by each other makes more sense, especially if you are only interested in one category.

Spring Color Palette (Jenna Hipp edition)

Jenna Hipp spring

This is what happens when I forget to take pictures of all the bottles together… I try out an idea that I think is good but is actually terrible. I’m sorry.

Ah spring… my least favorite season. Everyone else goes ga-ga for it so I think my problem must be due to locale. You see, our spring weather is the exact same as our winter weather (overcast and rainy 95% of the time), with a couple key differences: a) it’s warmer in spring so more humidity, booooo, and b) I have already been through at least three months of grey at this point and by April/May the appeal of moody weather has started to wear me down. Is there such thing as SAD for people who get depressed in spring instead of winter? Because I think I have that… Anyway, it’s not all bad because spring is the time of the year I start to break out my brighter nail polishes and change up my color palette which makes me a very happy person.  I decided to show you some of the colors I like to wear this time of the year. Like my last color palette post, I challenged myself to choose polishes from just one brand. Today it’s Jenna Hipp! I love these little polishes, I wish she would come out with more collections. They were such a good price at Costco! Unlike the post last time, I decided to take some inspiration from the recent spring releases from big names in the polish world. I have noticed over the past few years that spring collections have featured bolder, brighter colors and they are not just all pastels. That is very much reflected in my choices today!
