Ulta Exclusive: OPI Shimmer Into Summer Collection "Sparkle Teal Sunrise"

I stopped by Ulta today and picked up one color from their new exclusive OPI "Shimmer Into Summer" Collection.  Sparkle Teal Sunrise is a sheer teal base with different multi-colored teal sparkle bits.  This totally reminds me of a teal version of "Last Friday Night" from the Katy Perry collection.

 I decided to layer it over  2 coats of OPI's "I Vant To Be A-lone Star":

Click on this one!

I love everything about this, except the name.  Sparkle Teal, I get....but Sunrise?  Huh?  Oh well, I'll live.  I kept wanting to type, "Teal Sparkle Sunset" for some reason.

There are 3 other shades in this collection, a silver glitter and 2 other medium and dark blues.  I may need to pick those up as well!

  1. I need to get my butt over to Ulta soon and buy these! I'm a sucker for exclusives, especially ones this pretty.

    I don't get Sparkle Teal Sunrise either. OPI must be finally running out of names because they are getting more and more obscure.

  2. It's so pretty! I love teal anything and even though glitter polishes can be a total pain to remove, I'll risk it for the sake of this teal one - too bad there's no Ulta near me...lol! As to the name, "teal" is a play on "til" so instead of "sparkle TIL sunrise" it's "Sparkle Teal Sunrise" or whoop it up until the sun rises.....that make any sense? AT least, that's my take!! Beautiful swatches, Maribeth...as always!!

  3. Eugenia, OMG! I don't know how I didn't see it!! HAahahahaahahahah That's what I get for painting and posting late at night...my brain is half asleep. I honestly kept thinking, "what the hell is with this generic, strange name?". Too funny

    And Jessi, run, don't walk to Ulta!!! :)

  4. I really like this one. Don't know if I like it enough to purchase it yet but it's pretty darn cute and I have *ahem* recently acquired quite a few lovely teal shades... :D Oh and FYI the polish names are literally thought up during happy hour. The chick that does my pedicures is the salon owner's daughter. Apparently they had some OPI execs come in for a meeting because their salon has been winning some awards blah blah... anyways she asked and they were like do you want the story we tell people or the honest truth... she said honest truth and thats what it is... the names are thought up over happy hour! LOVE IT!! xo E
