Discount Discovery: Ulta Clearance of OPI!

It's been a while since I've seen anything good on the clearance shelf at Ulta so I was kind of excited to see two entire racks filled with OPI polishes! Three shelves of one rack were filled with the mini bottles of the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 Collection, so I'm guessing that wasn't as popular as they thought it would be, but they also had Warm Me Up, which I got, and the white gold topper Pure was marked down to $15. But the collection that got my attention was the Miss Universe 2013 Collection because, well, purple!
I'm Feeling Sashy, two coats plus topcoat
My favorite of the two that I got is I'm Feeling Sashy, a deep, dusty lavender shade that is similar to the much sought-after Parlez-vous OPI, but quite a bit redder. I can't get enough of these dusty purples.
Miss You-niverse, two coats plus topcoat
The other one I got was Miss You-niverse, a rich, deep eggplant color that is perfect for this time of year. With careful application it could be a one-coater, so I can see this being a great base for nail art or stamping. And no staining!

I know that not all Ultas have the same products, but it's worth checking out their clearance shelves right now to see what they've got marked down, right?


  1. Oooh, I'll be heading over there today to check, because these are gorgeous! I'm such a sucker for clearance OPI, I ended up getting several of the Mariah Carey collection even though I was iffy about some of them. Thanks for the beautiful swatches and the tip!

    1. I know what you mean. I tend to buy things I don't really need just because they're on clearance. Bad me...

  2. Ooh I gotta check my Ulta, I love the second purple!! Hopefully my store will have this one on sale too!
