What a beautiful day today! We've had so much rain and dreary weather, that any remote sign of sunlight makes me happy! In fact, it was so pretty today, I decided to get out of the office for lunch. Guess where I headed? Not Taco Bell. Not McDonald's. Not Burger King.....Ulta! Yay! :-)
When I got there, I made a bee-line straight towards the polishes. On the display case where I usually find the new OPI collections I saw this:
(This picture was taken after I purchased my first 2 polishes, before I purchased my next 3!!!)
Now, I know I only started "obsessing" over nail polish (specifically OPI) less than a year ago, but I think I have a pretty good knowledge of current colors, new collections, retired shades, upcoming collections, etc. This color, however, was completely new to me (hence the reason why I immediately got out my iPhone and took a picture!). I decided to get 2 "Black Satin's", along with a "Gargantuan Green Grape" (gotta love the Buy 2, Get 1 Free sale!).
When I got in my car after leaving the store, I thought to myself, "This could be completely gone if I needed to come back and get more (to swap, sell, gift, etc.), I should go back in and get three more!" So, that's exactly what I did (this time, however, I remembered to use my $3.50 off coupon!). I believe these displays only hold 8 bottles. I purchased 5. You do the math.
From the little research I've done on this polish, it looks like it was originally released (maybe a limited release?) back in 2004 (I think I read that somewhere...). Anyways, the one picture I found of the bottom of the bottle has black lettering, which means it's probably an original bottle. As you can see from my pictures below, this is a new bottle, and includes a serial number on the label as well as an engraved serial number on the bottle (again, meaning it's not an old bottle. OPI brought this color back!).
I loved the color in the bottle, and loved it even more on my nails! It reminds me of the review I did with "Suzi Ski's in the Pyrenee's - Suede" with a top coat. Remember that one? If not, you can see it here.

All of these (minus the last one) are with flash:
Regardless of what the weather's like where you're at, ENJOY your weekend. And,
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY (a couple days early) to all you amazing moms out there! :-)
My mom's in France even as I type this post, so I won't have her here to celebrate. And on top of that, her birthday is May 9th (the day after Mother's Day), so she'll miss BOTH holidays! Guess we'll just have to celebrate when she returns next week! If/When you ever read this, I LOVE YOU, MOM!
