Butter London

I love Butter London nail polish, but they retail for $14 a piece. Ridiculous. So obviously, when you see a deal on something like that - run. During Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty, one day they had buy 1 get 1 free on Butter nail polishes.
You know what that means.

Big Smoke
London’s finest. Mildly metallic navy blue that’s as naughty as a night in a smoky pub.
I was worried this might be a dupe of Essie's Midnight Cami once I got home, but I don't think it's exactly the same. Midnight Cami is a navy true navy while Big Smoke has more royal blue in it, and Big Smoke looks like it has more shimmer. Even if it was a dupe, Midnight Cami is one of my favorite polishes so - works for me.

Henley Regatta
Glitters like the Thames on a sunny day. A fusion of green and blue glitter that varies in intensity depending on the light.
Blue/green glitter? Sold.

Yummy Mummy
Our ‘magic’ lacquer. This medium beige colour is simply stunning on EVERY skin colour. If you can’t decide on a lacquer, then we will for you. It’s this.
This is similar in color to All Hail McQueen (it's called All Hail the Queen now) but the most notable difference is that it's a cream where All Hail McQueen is shimmery. I absolutely love All Hail McQueen so I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of Yummy Mummy.

Victoriana
A textured twinkling vintage blue pale and slightly smoky. 
It's pretty and I don't have anything like it. 

I made 2 trips to Ulta on sale day. I bought 2, came home, and immediately wished I'd gotten more so I went back later. Anyway, that worked out because each time I used a $3.50 coupon. Since they were buy 1 get 1 for $14, with the coupon it was 2 polishes for $10.50. $5.25 each! Works for me.

Did you pick up any Butter London polishes during the Ulta sale?

I got turned onto Butter a few months ago when Nordstrom was running some 2 for $20 deal. Now, I'm kind of addicted, so I gladly pay the $14 each.
I'm also a compulsive shopaholic.
