Hey everyone! Tis the season for Ulta exclusives! If you know me, I’m a FREAK for a Holiday collection. SO, when I read in a trusty group I belong to that they were popping up on the shelves, I immediately got on the phone and called every Ulta in CT. My husband was kind enough to stop at the one in North Haven on his way home and was able to find them!
Basically, these 3 OPI polishes are Ulta exclusives and can only be purchased in store. I’m pretty sure these are set to hit shelves on Black Friday but .. you may get lucky & find them early!
The 3 colors are called ~ A Sparkle Yule Love, How’s It Snowin’? & Speak For Your-Elf. Super cute names.. super GORGEOUS colors! I tried to take accurate photos, but it really does them no justice. So let’s get onto the swatches shall we? And ps.. This is going to be picture heavy! (As always, click to enlarge)
**L-R ~ A Sparkle Yule Love, How’s It Snowin’? & Speak For Your-Elf**
Now.. you’re probably wondering.. Haven’t I seen 2 of those colors before!? The answer is.. yes. Let me show you..
On the left – Speak For Your Elf.. On the right – Smitten With Mittens. NOW.. if you have NO clue how popular and wanted Smitten With Mittens is… It’s EXTREMELY popular. Smitten is from the 2009 Holiday Collection and is VERY rare and hard to find. I was lucky to score 2 bottles at a local CVS a few weeks ago.. But if you search for it on ebay, they sell for about $25 a bottle. My point is.. if you’re one of those lacquer lovers that is crazily trying to find this polish and don’t want to spend the money.. BUY SPEAK FOR YOUR ELF! It’s so hard to tell in these photos, but on my swatch wheel.. they are IDENTICAL. Smitten is a tad bit darker.. but COME ON! LOOK!
Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous.
Now the 2nd one I want to compare is A Sparkle Yule Love & Excuse Moi! from the Muppet collection.
On the left is Excuse Moi! & on the right is A Sparkle Yule Love. Pretty close right? Both have pink bases and are chock full of silver glitter. If you have Excuse Moi!, you can probably save yourself $8.50 and skip this one. But if you’re like me and have an obsession and absolutely need both.. then by all means.. go ahead & get it.
Sorry that picture is so dark.. you still get my drift though.
Here’s a couple of pictures of the polish in the bottles ~

And there ya have it! The Deck Your Nails Holiday Collection from OPI. What are your thoughts? Will you be running out on Black Friday to get these?!
*These polishes are $8.50 and can be found exclusively at your local Ulta store*
All opinions are my own and polishes were purchased with my own cash 😉
