Some Ulta Swatches

Hello lovelies!

  Today I have some swatches of Three ULTA Pro's I got recently. The display was so empty and pathetic looking but somehow these Three colors managed to catch my eye.

Up first is Twilight. This is a dark shimmery Taupe. In the bottle for some reason it looked a bit lighter than what it ended up looking like on the nail. I still love it. It is a perfect color for Fall. Even though it's a dark Mocha shade the shimmer in this reflects light enough to light it up beautifully. The formula is great, very good pigmentation and a solid Two coater.

For Bitten. Hahah Get it? Get it?... Cheesy- cute! This is a pretty awesome dark Rusty Brown with a Red/ Copper duochrome shimmer. This is another color that is perfect for Fall. I'm just naturally drawn to these types of shades. I've been trying to venture to more Vampy "grown up" shades. The formula on this was great as well, also a Two coater.

And this is Black Diamond. This is an interesting shade. Even though the name would suggest it's Black, it has a Green/ Coppery duochrome shimmer that makes it look like a Blackened Green. The formula for this one was slightly gluggy but not terribly problematic. This is Two coats.

  Overall, I really liked these polishes. The formula is great. I found the brush to be too round. Does that make sense? I could never really find a side where it would lay slightly flat. The formula was consistent. Also these pictures were taken pre top coat so as you can see they are very, very shiny. I wish I knew how their color selection really is because the day I went they were on sale and the rack had been destroyed! Anywho, I would recommend these if you are curious about them, especially when they go on sale.

Also, You may have heard about a contest Bundle Monster is holding on Facebook where they will be giving away 25 sets of their new plates. I have entered a picture and would really appreaciate if you would check it out and vote (but only if you like it) All you have to do is click (HERE) and leave a comment on the picture. I'm honestly not 100% sure on what is going (as far as voting) on but I encourage my lovelies to check it out and enter and vote!

Thanks for stopping by :)
