I just wanted to quickly note that I found a handful of Urban Decay’s nail colors marked down from $15 to $5 at Nordstrom Rack this weekend, and I picked up two shades that looked really lovely, Addiction and Vice. This was a fun deal to find, and I wanted to just take a moment to compare the deal with pricing and availability online.
The Nordstrom Rack near me has a generous stock of Urban Decay nail colors right now, mostly in the shades Zodiac (sparkly dark green), Chaos (bright cobalt blue), and Bang (bright orange). As I was poking around I found Addiction (sparkly gunmetal) and Vice (dark sparkly violet), but there were far fewer of these two shades in the bins.
I’ve taken a look at their availability online and think that the Nordstrom Rack deal is pretty great in comparison. UrbanDecay.com has their nail colors on sale for $5, as well, but they only have Zodiac, Chaos, and Bang, not the two that I walked away with. Plus, you don’t have to pay for shipping if you walk into a Nordstrom Rack. Sephora.com has three shades, Zodiac, Vice, and Addiction, but they are full price at $15. Might be worth a look if you’re drawn to Urban Decay’s shades.
My understanding is that Vice and Addition were both Fall 2013 shades (see swatches at MakeupandBeautyBlog), Zodiac was a holiday 2013 shade (photos at AllLacqueredUp), and Bang and Chaos were summer 2014 shades (see both at Temptalia). I haven’t tried any of the shades yet, but a lot of people speak really highly of them and I love a $5 price tag.
I love spotting deals at Nordstrom Rack, and historically I’ve done well stalking their stock of cosmetics. I wanted to note that they also had a lot of the Pulp Fiction eyeshadow palettes in stock marked down to $16. That’s the same price as UrbanDecay.com, but it could potentially save you the shipping cost, and that palette has disappeared from Sephora’s website.
I hope you’re having a good week! Have you found any exciting deals recently?
