Updated with more sightings: new Ulta clearance markdowns (in-store and online)

Back in the beginning of July, I showed you many of the Ulta clearance deals that readers were spotting (click here for that post). Since then, it appears that even more products have gone on clearance at Ulta, and not just in-store!

First up, my pal Allison (@allibally on Instagram) shared this photo of some OPI and OPI Designer Series polishes she spotted on clearance at her Ulta today:

You can click HERE to check out Allison's Instagram feed for lots of other polish clearance deals she spotted at Ulta today. Also, a few weeks ago, reader @_biancaax33 on Instagram spotted this three-pack of NYX Butter Glosses for a whopping $0.97 at her Ulta!

Just in!

Thanks to reader @kimmydadiva on Instagram for the above pic of her recent Ulta haul. On the left are the clearance prices and on the right are the prices after she used the $3.50 off a $10 purchase coupon. Way to go, Kimmy!

If you don't have an Ulta in your area, some of these clearance deals are now available online, too! More info, after the jump....

Thanks to reader @daisy_nlulu_nails on Instagram for alerting me to the fact that right now on the Ulta site, there are lots of OPI polishes on 50% off clearance, and some OPI DS polishes too. CLICK HERE to take a look. PLUS, @daisy_nlulu_nails said that she was able to use the $3.50 off a $10 purchase coupon on these polishes, and don't forget that this week only, you get free shipping on orders of $25 or more, no code required.

And I literally just discovered that China Glaze Boo-gie Down and Bat My Eyes from the Fall 2013 Monster's Ball Collection are both $0.97 each! Also, the entire Spa Ritual Spring 2014 Explore collection is now on clearance for $5.97 each, and select shades from the core line are $6 each (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Solitude, Hot Blooded and possibly others).

So who knows what else might be on clearance on the Ulta site right now! Start digging (and please feel free to share with us anything you may uncover)!

Thanks for the great tips, Allison, @daisy_nlulu_nails and @_biancaax33!


  1. I picked up OPI's Muppet's World Tour on clearance at Ulta about a week ago and was able to use the $3.50 off of $10 coupon on it. Ended up getting for $4 or so. They also had several Zoya polishes, including some from the 2014 Spring Collection!

  2. The following SpaRitual polishes are $6 each:

    Hot Blooded
    Too Hot to Handle
    Drop Dead Gorgeous
    Days of Wine and Roses
    Smoke 'N Mirrors
    Kiss the Cook
    Spice of Life
    I Feel The Earth Move

  3. I posted on the You Tell Me page that if you can still find it at your Ulta, the "Over and Over A-Gwen" OPI set with studs, glue, etc. was marked down to $1.97 (originally retailed for $14.95), but at the register it comes up as 98 cents. Such a steal.

  4. I was at Ulta two weeks ago and got Zoya Piaf for $0.99 and ButterLondon Bluey for $4.95 on clearance.

  5. This past Saturday I got Orly Watch it Glitter for .01!!! One Cent! It was marked $4.99, but it rang up at .01. They had very few polishes left in the clearance section of my Ulta. I did a major Ulta clearance haul in July, and all of the polishes I got then rang up for way less than marked. I got all 6 polishes from the 2013 China Glaze Glitz Bitz 'N' Pieces collection for just over $3 then. The clearance seems pretty picked over at this point, but it's definitely still worth looking.

  6. Does anyone know how to search the Ulta website for clearance efficiently?

  7. Not really, because each store will have different stock depending on what did or didn't sell for them. You can click Sale, and then search by brand, but some saving must be purchased in person(IE brands that can't be purchased via website - like Zoya).

  8. I was at the Ulta in Hanover, PA this past weekend and found a TON of clearance that I hadn't seen at my two other stores. Tons of Zoya polishes for 4 and 5 bucks!

  9. Found lots of opi, China glaze polishes found also a lot of Ulta bath products down to $1.97 from reg $12 lots of great deals for gifts including for stocking stuffers

  10. Thanks so much for this info! None of those polishes were in the clearance section of my ulta. They were still in with the regular full price opi but rang up half price. I never would have known. (OPI muir muir on the wall, Ink, DS luxurious, DS indulgence)
