My first trip to Ulta

Hey guys! I hope everyone has been doing well! Texas is really great, I love the area and I've found a couple apartments that I'm deciding between. Best of all, there is an Ulta here! I know that's so whatever for some people, but I've never been to an Ulta or a Sephora, so I was really excited to go. It was pretty much the best day of my life... jk but not really, I'm sure you understand ;] I totally hauled on polish while I was there. I've been keeping my nails painted in this week away from work, since I can't have them painted there. Obviously I'm going there again before I leave town, so you'll see haul number 2 in a few days, haha. I got Ulta polish in "Holiday In Turqs & Caicos", OPI "Jade is the New Black", Orly "Shine", OPI "Ink Suede", and an Ulta basecoat I got for free (BOGO for Ulta polishes right now). I also got that little OPI giftset for free since I spent $17 on OPI. It includes Ink, Rosy Future, and a topcoat. I know you've seen a trillion pictures, but I've been lemming this so long that I don't care- Jade is the New Black :D This is the only creme polish I have ever loved. I HATE cremes, but this applied like a dream. I love OPI. It is so amazing, even better in person. You've got to get it! Keep having a great week ladies.


  1. How exciting to go to Ulta for the first time. My first experience at Ulta was about 3 years ago when I moved, and since it's a 5 min drive from my apt, I'm really spoiled :T. Can't wait to hear your experiences at Sephora in the near future. You will<3 Sephora :)

  2. Oh girl, your first time at Ulta!! What fun! I remember the first time I went... I was like a kid in a candy store!! haha

  3. Nice! I don't think we have these stores in Canada, I only just stumbled on a Sally beauty supply a month ago lol. WE NEEDZ MOAR MAKEUP STORES!

  4. I've only been to Ulta like twice because there's only one in this state & it's 3 hours away. lol

    I loooooooove that green polish you picked up. Lovely color. I may have to get it now!

  5. I have OPI Jade is the new black. I love it. I'm opposite you, I only love cream polishes. I like the blue ulta polish you bought too.

  6. Hahah I would get excited about an Ulta because we don't really have stores like that in the UK... Apparently we have SpaceNKs but I've never seen one. I get so excited in the beauty section of Harrod's, although there's always lots and lots of people because it's ground floor and MAC is near the doors and I hate lots of people so this saddens me. Also I obviously can't afford anything in Harrod's but my more-money-than-sense ex-stepdad bought me an eyeshadow there once. It was, obviously, lime green.

    Nice haul. I want to see makeups in the next one though!!

    Eee, apartments, how exciting!

  7. Ahhh I've been positively drooling over Jade is the New Black on various blogs :D

  8. We don't have Ulta here but I can imagine what you mean XD

    Pretty nail polishes...that blue one on the left looks gorgeous!

  9. Ooooh lovely stuff! I wanna try OPI!

  10. Glad you had fun! Ulta is so much fun to stay a while in and look around!

    I completely forgot to let you know yesterday...I tagged you in a post! Hope you enjoy mine and respond!

  11. we have both ulta and sephora where i live. although i have never been in sephora but i go to ulta once in a while. i do most of my shopping online. it's easier and i usually find better deals. ebay is my firend!

  12. @Edna: When I move down to Texas it will only be about 5 minutes away from my apartment too :D

    @Miss Vintage Vogue: I tried not to drool all over myself, it was tricky.

    @KittenMittens: That sucks :( I loved Sally Beauty until I went to Ulta... now I don't care about it at all :P

    @Rai: You need it, it's as great as everyone says.

    @Phyrra: Thanks! Wish I had picked up some Piggy Polish though. Next time!

    @Brooke: thank you :)

    @Kim: I can never get creme polishes to go on without getting them all bubbly, so I almost never use any.

    @Rachel: I had never heard of SpaceNK until icky ick Xenia of LimeCrime said they were going to start selling her line... do they not even bother to google Lime Crime? You can find out she's a scam in like .2 I have never been to Harrod's, I read in a book though that they used to have an exotic animal department :D I have never been to a MAC counter or anything either, I don't know where you'd find one here honestly.

    @SilhouetteScreams: idk what it is about it! It's just some boring green but I love it so much <3

    @Simone: I think everyone needs to a chance to visit an Ulta :P I can't wait to try the blue, I was surprised at how many really pretty colors were in the Ulta line.

    @Lillian: You've never tried OPI? :O :O :O Oh my gosh... it's my favorite brand bar none. I can never figure out why some people don't like it, it is the one brand I never have application issues with, ever.

    @NV Beauty: I kind of want to live there now, haha. Now that I'm home I need to do that tag!

    @Vanilla: ooh cool! Thanks!

    @Blix: I want a Sephora T_T How can you live by one and NOT go to it? I'm too scared to use ebay, I haven't in a long time. I'm really afraid I'll get scammed.
