It's Easy Being Green (For Your Toes)
I have finally arrived.
I made it to Level 2 on Ulta's ladder of freebie stuff*. No more lame bags of cotton balls (the kind of thing you get on tier 1). Noooo, I scored me free SALON nail polish up to an $8.50 value. That's a pretty good deal.
OPI's "Jade is the New Black" from its recent Hong Kong collection came home with me. The color's a medium green, so it stands out without being as loud as, say, one of the greens from its upcoming Shrek collection. The green's seasonless, too. It'd work in fall or spring. It's a pretty flattering shade to most skin tones, but OPI's site lets you virtually try on the colors, which is cool.
*You can sign up for the Ulta club, which just tracks your purchases. After you accumulate a certain number during a particular time frame, the company sends you a coupon that you can redeem for free stuff. The first level is pretty pedestrian, but the second one has some fairly good prize options. Doesn't cost anything to sign up.
