Swatches - OPI Ulta Stuff My Stocking Mini's

I went to Ulta last weekend and came across this set of 4 mini polishes OPI made for Ulta for Christmas. Here are the swatches! All swatches are 2 coats with Seche Vite top coat as opposed to the OPI fast dry top coat provided in the package.

I also got all these goodies for free! Just for making a purchase at Ulta.

Last Minute Shopper
A bright reddish pink with glowing shimmer. Goes on nail lighter than bottle color. Much more dark cool-toned pink in real life as opposed to bright orangy-red as see in pic. There seems to be a hint of blue shimmer captures by the flash of the camera, but this blue is not seen in the bottle or on the nail. Dries shiniest out of the 3.

Warm artificial light
Skip the Gift Wrap
A frosty mid-tone green (cool-toned). This turned out surprisingly sheer considering how dark the color is in the bottle. The color goes on lighter than seen in the bottle. This dries to a somewhat dull finish so top coat is highly recommended. Lastly, this is brush-stroke prone...so beware!

Natural light
Gift Cards For Everyone!
This is a dark purple with fine blue shimmer particles. The polish would be a 1 coater if it weren't for the mini brushes I think. It dries somewhat shiny, but top coat really makes it shine. The pic makes the polish seem more blue when it is actually dark purple in real life. This is my favorite out of the 3 even though it is not a typical Christmas color. What can I say I love those vampy colors!

Hope you enjoyed the swatches. Have you purchased this set yet? If so, what do you think of it?
