Yep, giganta-haul! It’s a word now 🙂 So I have bought way too many polishes this month… Many haven’t even arrived yet. I also made my first ever trip to Ulta which resulted in a $107 tab. Looking back on it, I spent WAY too much money there. That place is so expensive! I should have just ordered the polishes I got from their actual companies or Amazon or something… But they were right in front of me and so gorgeous that I couldn’t help myself (like the addict I am, I know…).
I’m breaking them down into lots of photos. Some of them have multiple photos to better show the actual polish (since they’re, you know, so freakin’ gorgeous!).
First up we have the Deborah Lippmanns. I’ve obviously seen this polish in various blogs for a long time now and had even browsed their store online. I shied away from ordering any due to the price but after seeing so many gorgeous swatches and reading so many great reviews, I finally broke down when I saw so many pretty DLs in front of me at Ulta! I bought two 15ml bottles.
When I went to checkout the girl behind the counter slipped three free mini Deborah Lippmans in my bag too! She was so nice and began a conversation that eventually lead to her asking about the polish I was wearing at the time (my own, Sweet Sixteen). She flattered me by saying it was awesome looking and she would visit the shop. I’m doubting she ever ended up visiting it but I was still happy nonetheless!
ANYWAY… I’m getting off track… The three minis are all magnetic polishes that came with a wave-producing magnet. Now, I’ve never tried any of the magnetic polishes before because I never much cared for them but I tried Magic Man out on a nail and was amazed! It was absolutely gorgeous and the whole magnet deal was really cool too (I know, I’m late to that party).

The little freebie box the clerk gave me!

Now onto the Zoya polishes… Yet another brand I have seen all over but never tried. Of course all the amazing reviews were true to their word because they are GORGEOUS!

I actually got the BL polishes earlier this month but they’re still included in my September haul because I haven’t posted about them yet… Obviously I also got some other polishes like the two Pretty Jelly polishes but I never mentioned the BL polishes so they’ll go here 🙂
L to R: Purple Glam, Orange Gleam
Okay, so I was at the pharmacy picking up a prescription and saw this makeup stand for a brand I’d never seen before called Jordana. Honestly, my expectations weren’t high but the $1.50 price tag on both the polishes meant I couldn’t refuse, haha. I got the two glitter polishes of the bunch and “reluctantly” tried them for the blog. I was floored when they ended up being AMAZING! Both are gorgeous and apply really well. I will definitely do a full review in the future for this brand because it really deserves one.
Here’s yet another brand I had never seen before. I got this one during my Ulta haul. It’s obviously a pretty vampy fall-type color and from what I can see it looks nice.
And last but not least, a bottle of Revlon. Honestly, I haven’t been buying much Revlon polish in the past six or so months because I own so many of them already (I think about 30 now!) and already have the ones I like. However, while I was at Ulta I saw one I hadn’t seen before and given the fact that Revlon is tried and true I had to have it.
Welp, that’s it! I am expecting a few bottles of indie polishes over the next few days and I’ll post about them too. Have a lovely week!
