Swatches > Ulta Salon Formula | Alter Ego

This is a really awesome color.  Its a really cool shimmer finish metallic blue, not to bright, not too dark.  It applied wonferfully, in the sense that it wasn't streaky or thin.  Most of the time I'm not inclined to to even try out metallics, but I couldn't pass up this color!  Also, it was only $2, so that was even more reason for it to become a part of my nail polish collection.

The pictures are pretty accurate as far color, especially the first one.  I absolutely loved this shade and formula, for one bcause its super wearable and an all-around pretty color.  If you haven't tried out any of the Ulta Salon Formula polishes, this would be a really good time, because they're on sale for super cheap ($2).  I think Ulta will be running the sale for another week also.

Size: 0.4 fl oz./ 11.8 mL

Used Orly Glosser as top coat.

Oooh and in other words, just saw that Ulta has a new Matte top coat and its $2 too.  I know matte is more of a Fall/Winter look, but I think I'm gonna try it out.  I love the Matte look, so I'll be rocking it year, lol!  I think Alter ego would look really awesome matted out.  Hmm...note to self:  Next time nails are painted w/ Alter Ego use Ulta Matte Top Coat.  I'll deifnitely put up a swatch of it too.
