Ulta3 Autumn/Winter Metallic Nail Colour Collection - Swatches & Review

Tuesday, 26 May 2015


Today I am excited to share with you the recently released Autumn/Winter Metallic Collection from Ulta3.  I have seen a couple of people mention that these are a textured collection, but I haven't seen any marketing from Ulta3 that says that they are meant to be textured, only metallics.  That being said, these can be worn as a textured polish if you desire but I don't find that they give the same textured look or gritty feeling as an OPI Liquid Sand (they are the only textured polishes I have tried so it's all I can compare it too).

The formulas of this collection I found are really easy to work with and either need two or three coats to be opaque.  I did find that they were quite slow drying which was a bit of a surprise for me.  Normally I find the fine glitters dry a lot quicker.

24 Carat Gold is a clear based polish that is filled with gold and silver microglitters.  Really pretty and sparkly.  I think this would look pretty layered over other polishes too.  I used three coats for my swatch.

Black Quartz is a black based polish with fine silver glitters.  This polish dries quicker than some of the others in the collection and is opaque in two coats.

From The Mine is a clear based with copper, gold and silver microglitters.  This polish is definitely unique in my collection.  I found that this one also didn't dry as slow as other in this collection, but it was still slower to dry than Black Quartz.  I used three coats for my swatch.

Galaxy is a grey based polish with gold and silver microglitters.  The mix of colours give it kind of a greenish look to it.  It's really pretty and quite unique in my collection.  This one also appears to dry the quickest of the collection.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Moon Dust is a clear bases polish with silver microglitters.  Super pretty and sparkly, but really slow drying.  I used three coats for my swatch.

I quite like this collection of polishes.  It is particularly great for those starting there polish collections seems they are at such an affordable price (RRP $3).  My absolute favorite is Galaxy from this collection.

Ulta3 is available from local chemists and pharmacies.  You can find your nearest stockist here.
