My October trip to Ulta

Once a month, I get to make a trip to Ulta. It's the highlight of my beauty schedule, and I spend an undue amount of time planning what I will buy. I try to keep it under $20 after coupons, and generally I'm pretty good. This month, I splurged a little. OPI was having a buy two, get one free sale...and can you believe I didn't own any full-sized OPI polish? Until the Ulta opened, there wasn't anywhere around here that sold it. 

The Haul:
Poshe fast dry top coat: I like it...sorta. It seems to get goopy faster than Seche Vite, and doesn't seem to last as long. But it's 3-free, and it doesn't stink up the whole house.
Wet'n'Wild Fantasy Makers in Once Upon a Time
Some whitening nail scrub: didn't work, I returned it.
OPI Malaga Wine
OPI Alpine White
OPI I Have a Herring Problem

I noticed some time after taking these photos that I was inadvertently patriotic with my color choices. Completely accidental.
I am not crazy about the Fantasy Makers. It's cool, but I loathe and detest jellies. There, I said it. I really don't like having to layer nail polish so thick that people ask if my nails are fake. I think if I were going to wear this, I'd layer it over a black cream just for the convenience. The glitter is pretty dense in one coat.

The whitening scrub didn't work for shit and it smelled like silver polish. I think, if I had a mild yellowing, it would have been fine. But my nails are a lovely shade of yellow ochre that would make Bob Ross jealous. I figured it'd be nice to wear some sheers every now and then, but this product isn't going to help me get there. I returned it a week later. I got equally "meh" results from using peroxide+baking soda.
