OPI Ulta Exclusives Summer 2012 Swatches and Review

Today I have the OPI Ulta Exclusives to share with you. I found these bad girls while I was out over the weekend. I had to hunt around a little because the first location I visited was sold out within 30 minutes. I guess there are quite a few nail fanatics in my area :) 


The Flowers Are Blue-Ming! Bright blue scattered holographic. There was talk that it was similar to Absolutely Alice but it's slightly darker and lacks the gold glitter that gives AA the slight green hue. I used 3 thin coats to make it opaque.

Hot Fun In The Summer-Lime. Kelly green creme that's much prettier on than in the bottle. I used 3 thin coats that went on without any drama. The formula is thin and it's almost a jelly but not quite.

Pack Your Booty Shorts.  Medium purple creme. It reminds me of Grape Pop but its not as dark. The formula is also a little on the thin side. I used 3 coats here.

Overall this is a cute little set. The blue glitter doesn't appear to go with the two brights in the collection but I won't complain because it's gorgeous! There is also a gold foil which completes the collection,  but I left it behind because it seemed dupey to a gold I already own. There may also be dupes to the cremes but I can't think of any off the top of my head. My favorites from the collection are Hot Fun In The Summer-Lime and The Flowers Are Blue-Ming.

I purchased this set from Ulta for $8.50 a bottle. Over the weekend they ran special B2G1 free but I'm not sure if it's still going or not. Unfortunately OPI's cannot be purchased from ULTA online, so you'll have to take a trip to pick these girls up.

    1. I love when they offer the B2G1 I just wish they did it online as well. It's so far to drive when/if I forget something. Luckily they're building a new one in my area. You're welcome for the swatches. Glad you enjoyed :)

  11. I have multiple bottles of Absolutely Alice and it still didn't prevent me from picking up Blue-Ming. They have a similar feel, but are so different. Love them both!
