Last Chance to Enter for the Give-Away

Here is your last chance to enter the get away! 

Just 5 more hours to enter!

The polish I selected for the give-away is OPI Ink

OPI Ink is a dark purple that flashes a bit lighter with some pink & blue micro glitter throughout. 

I wanted to buy 2 of these so I could have one for myself, but they only had 1 left at ULTA. I never pay retail price if I can help it. But I needed a good purple polish and I figure everyone loves OPI, right?

Lucky me, I had a coupon for OPI and if you spent a certain $ amount on OPI you got a free mini set. I am not really a fan of applying a mini polishes, I would rather they gave 1 free full size bottle, but free is free. And as luck would have it OPI Ink was one of the mini's! So I got to swatch it for you guys. 

Check out what else I found at Ulta!

I picked up some other polishes while I was at Ulta. I grabbed some essence and a few more Ulta brand polishes and LASplash. I'll be swatching these over the next few weeks.

These are the LASplash I picked up:

L to R: Sparkling Lavendar, Hula Hula(more of a red creme with a hint of pink), Blowfish Purple (Swatch pic below), Tidal Wave & Blue Splash(Swatch pic below).

L to R: French Sparkle, Sparkling Rose, Blowfish Pink(more orange in real life), Terra Beach & Glitz & Berry (Swatch Pic Below)

I decided to do a few swatches tonight. It has been raining for the last few days, so these are all taken indoors. I will have to re-do these when the sun decides to make an appearance. The bottle pics are close but not 100% color accurate. The swatches are a bit better.

Here is Blowfish Purple. This is more of a hot pink color to me. It is a nice creme. All these polishes took 3 coats though. the consistency is pretty thin. When I wear them I will have to wear them with a camouflage base coat.

This is Blue Splash. This is a bright vivid blue. Almost metallic and some subtle blue shimmer.

The last one for tonight is Glitz & Berry. This is not quite red and not quite pink. It is like the glitter is suspended in a jelly polish. In real life it is very smooth. In the picture, it doesn't look as smooth as it is in person. 

Overall I really like this polish. It retails for about $5 USD and they have them at Ulta right now for buy 1 get 1 half off. Plus if you have some coupons, it isn't too bad. I would buy more of these in the future. What do you guys think?


  1. Man what the heck is Ulta? Is it some kind of department store/drugstore?

    It frustrates me so much because I've never even seen one before but now I'm spotting this name everywhere on different ppl's blogs...

    Argh! Ulta! Come over to my town darn it!

  2. Cailley - You need an Ulta. I love that store. I wish we had more stores like this around. It is like Sephora, but it has more drugstore options. Maybe I should do a contest with some Ulta finds? I'll have to jot that down in the idea book.

  3. Gosh, Ink is absolutely gorgeous!!

    My, my, that was colour galore! Fab haul! Glitz & Berry looks fantastic! :)
