ABC Blog Challenge - "A" Ulta Alter Ego

Ulta Nail Polish

Ulta Nail Polish
I have joined Gosia from Life in Color in a blog challenge.  It's called the Alphabet Challenge where the participants post a nail polish for each letter of the alphabet (4 letters per week).  I thought this would be fun and help me choose some of my posts during the week instead of just randomly picking a polish.
And this was my chance to try my old Ulta Alter Ego again.  I probably tried it once when I got it a few years ago, and since then, it has been lost in the shuffle.  
This was so easy to apply and looks really pretty - very metallic!

    1. OMG, you don't know how happy that makes me that you say that. I have been working on this night and day (even at my day job). I was wondering what people were seeing as I was changing/updating, going back and forth for the past 2 days:) aaaahhh, I need to just be happy and quit tweaking things - I think that's the perfectionist in me. Well email me if you have any questions about how to do any of it (coffee cups, etc.). Thanks again!

  2. *sigh* metallic finishes are so pretty. And this color is simply amazing. Nothing less.
    I just saw a Game Of Thrones episode now and your mani brings back pictures of the grey wild see with it's waves breaking all around the rocks. I really love this polish of yours!

  4. First, I LOVE your new banner/layout! So is this all the finished product? It looks amazing! Second, your nails look super cute. I dig the new shape. Third, pretty polish! It actually reminds me of an Essie polish I've been hemming and hawwing over. I can't remember the name. Helpful, yes?

    1. Thanks so much! I have been working on it for a few days now and it's giving me a headache. There is lots to learn with creating/adding/tweaking banners and the layout. But now that I did it, I feel like an old pro. Yes, I think I'm about ready to call it a day and be happy with it. I know it's not good to keep changing the look because then people won't recognize you. As far as my nails, it's because of yours! I love the squared shape of yours so I am trying to get them to look like that. Of course, still having issues with the middle nail:( Hmmm, I wonder which polish you were thinking of - is it Aruba Blue? Or Blue Rhapsody??

    2. Aww. :} Well, good luck with the middle, it's a near constant source of consternation for me. lol. The Essie is Beach Bum Blue (I JUST remembered it!)

    4. By the way, I'm VERY impressed and a little jealous that you did this all yourself. I've got a friend with a degree in design revamping mine right now... we've been chatting about my vision for the past few days. I know I'll be afraid to touch it once she's done!

    5. It was a lot of work to learn how to do the banner - I even bought rights to the heart and then used a program to put it all together. It was a big learning experience - now it doesn't seem as hard once I went through it. Trying to get things the right size, centered, etc. is a big task by itself! Luckely I have lots of time at work to mess with it:) I can't wait to see what you end up doing. It's kindof addicting!

  5. First off, I love what you have done with your blog! Makes me want to revamp majorly!! I love this color on you too! I think I might jump in this challenge! I need something to give me a push to do more posts!

    1. Thanks! I'm surprised I made it this long without changing it. I am someone who changes furniture, etc. in my house all the time! Yes, totally join the challenge - it just started! :)

  6. Now this is a true challenge! I would love to be able to join you all but it sounds impossible for me right now!
