Good Morning! Happy Monday!

A while back in one of Ulta’s mailers there was a picture of a new Salon Formula polish they had that immediately looked like it might be dupey to Deborah Lippmann’s Happy Birthday polish. Ever since I saw that mailer I’ve been waiting for my Ulta to start stocking the polish. They finally did so I grabbed a bottle the other day! In the bottle they look similar but very different color wise. The Ulta polish, which is called Pinanta- Yada-Yada looked to be a bit brighter than Happy Birthday. On the nail they are much more similar looking! The formula was also very similar, I guess how much can that really differ though when we are talking about glitter in a clear base lol.

The main difference here is that Happy Birthday has small square glitter and Pinata-Yada-Yada has small hex glitter. Other than that no huge differences. If you have an Ulta near you this is a great alternative and it’s much cheaper. Right now Ulta has a sale on their Salon Formula polishes going on, 2 for $4! Not sure when that ends but if you pick this up during the sale it’s really a great deal!

Below is 2 coats of Ulta Pinata-Yada-Yada and 2 coats of Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday over Nubar White Peony.
