I know this isn’t exactly breaking news, but just because something is half price doesn’t mean it’s junk. To wit, the last time I was in Ulta I looked at their clearance racks more carefully than usual. What finds! Numerous colors of OPI and other quality nail polish, my favorite hair conditioner (Neutrogena Triple Moisture), a Revlon Lip Butter, and so on.
My local Ulta has a very small nail polish section so I think that they are constantly marking down good brands to make room for the new collections. Today my half-price find is a color that I’d considering buying more times than I can count — Brisbane Bronze.
Brisbane Bronze is a shimmery medium bronze from an Australia-themed collection quite a few years ago. I think it was so popular it became part of the regular line, but don’t quote me.
From what little I’ve seen and making a large leap of guesswork, I think bronze is going to be a popular color this fall. But it’s not just for fall — looks great in the summer too. Or any time.
The first coat was thin and streaky but the second coat covered very well. Under indirect outdoor light, once with the fab sale price sticker and once so you can see the bottle better.
I know I haven’t been showing many swatches lately. One, I haven’t had much new to parade and two, I’m doing lots of yard work this spring and my hands aren’t in the best of shape, even with wearing gloves faithfully. You’ll note my middle finger is not shown — it’s currently sporting a Band-Aid. A Hello Kitty Band-Aid, if you’re curious, and I know you are.
Have a great weekend!
