SPRING COLLECTION : Hot Spring, Spring Break, Spring Blossom, Spring Fling !


Hot Spring by Ulta3 was lovely to use. Hot Spring became opaque in just the one coat, although i used two for this swatch just to ensure the colour was nice and bright. Hot Spring is a lovely deep hot pink, it's very pigmented and lovely and creamy. The formula glides on the nail and is a pleasure to apply. An absolute gem from Ulta3.


This divine royal shade of purple from Ulta3 has a slightly thinner thinner consistency than some of the other polishes in this set. It is not as creamy an opaque on the first coat as the others, on the second coat however it becomes nice and opaque. The swatches above are 3 coats. Spring Break is a very striking colour !! Love it


The first coat of Ulta3 Spring Blossom is a little streaky (keep in mind this is a yellow polish) during the next few coats though this disappears. The formula is a little thick but still nice and creamy. The shade is a nice lemony pastel... in theory i adore the colour but I'm afraid it make my skin tone a little red. The swatch above was 3 coats.


Ulta3 Spring Fling is a lovely shade of apricot, it has a similar consistency to Spring Break so it's not as creamy as the others. It took 3 coats for this polish to become Opaque. A nice refreshing colour, again the same as Spring Blossom not sure if it's for me but a lovely colour just the same.

More Ulta3 swatches coming SOON !!

I absolutely adore this set of polishes, whenever i look at them i am instantly entranced by their ability to capture all that is SPRING .....


Spring Shower - Indoors

Spring Shower Sunlight

OMG !!!

To begin with this has to be one of my favourite shades i own, it is just to die for. This colour reminds of that pastel blue shade you see everywhere at Easter time, that perfect baby blue. There is absolutely no green tinge to this shade at all, its a pure blue. I found the consistency of this nice and creamy and very easy to apply. This swatch is 3 coats to make sure the colour came through on camera but it becomes opaque for me at 2 coats.

Ulta3 Spring Collection

This collection will make up my first round of swatches ... they are a range of beautiful creme pastels. All the names are really cute and incorporate the "Spring" theme. I'm not too sure when this collection came out if it was this spring or last, and I'm also not too sure if this is a complete set !! Ulta3 i have found to be a bit of a hit and miss thing. A few chemists in my area stock them and they are in a big bin type thing all a jumble ... so you literally have to go pawing through everything to find colours.

My First Ramble

I stumbled across a Nail Polish brand called Ulta3 in my local Chemist about a year ago and decided to grab a few bottles as the price was insanely cheap .. $2 is crazy in Australia. I hurried home and tried them out and thought the quality was pretty decent for the price, being an avid polish blog reader i jumped online to look up the brand and see if i could find some swatches of other colours and bombed out :( the only pics i could find online were two lovely colours i found on Nailz in Aus blog. Since then i have seen this brand popping up all over the internet !! This all happened quite awhile ago and since then my collection of this brands polishes has grown quite dramatically so i have decided to start this blog in the hopes of helping some other Polish Addict in there quest to see just what this nail brand is all about !! Keep watching for continuous uploads of Ulta3 Nail Swatches :)
