Summer Fun Challenge-Are We There Yet?

Today's theme was road trip or summer vacation.  Well, I have been to a lot of places but nothing jumped out at me.  I had almost given up hope until this weekend.  Most of you may already know, I am new to the polish world.  I stumbled across a facegroup group during a spring challenge and met some great people.  Then I was intoduced to another facebook group and learned a lot about polish really quickly.  One thing I learned was that everyone goes to Ulta.  Never even heard of it.  The more they talk about it, the more my interest was peaked.  I looked online and found that there was a store in Utica.  That is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours away but the closest one to me.  I mentioned this to my mom who is always up for an adventure, so......off we went this weekend.  Road trip to Ulta anyone??



Love google maps on the iphone.  It is such a big help when traveling. 


I was super excited to check it out.


I must admit, I was expecting more.  Don't get me wrong, I bought plenty of polish but I thought there would be aisles and aisles of the stuff.  I was able to get some of my fav's...Zoyas!!! For the record, I did NOT leave this mani on.  I am fairly certain I would be locked up in a ward somewhere if anyone knew this.  You guys, I am sure, will understand. :)

Here is a reminder of the challenges we still have ahead of us.
