3 great summer polishes for less than $10 and a NOTD in Purple Passion.

 Pictured from left to right: Silver Pink, Purple Passion and Hollywood.

Ulta 3 is a brand of nail polish that I see frequently around Adelaide for $2.50 a bottle. I've bought my step-daughter a bunch of their polishes for her nail polish collection. A few weeks ago I was home with a nasty virus and had to pick up a perscription from the Chemist who happens to stock Ulta 3. Now maybe it was the virus, maybe I was bored after being at home for a few days or maybe I am a nail polish addict (maybe???) but when I looked that the colours this time 3 jumped out to me and screamed "SUMMER IS COMING" and the idea for this post was born.

Pictured: Silver Pink, Hollywood and Purple Passion.

When I think summer I think bright, happy in your face colours and so when I saw Silver Pink, Hollywood and Purple Passion that's what they said to me. Now to be fair, I would totally wear Hollywood all year round but I consider it a great going out at night summer colour - and have had this on my toes for the last couple of weeks. 

Each polish was quite opaque and slightly thinner in formula (not quite watery though). I used 3 coats on the tip swatches shown (and sorry for the random hairs I didn't see until the pictures were taken). There is no top coat and all tip pictures were taken in natural sunlight.

So far I have only had the chance to a NOTD for Purple Passion which is shown below with 3 coats in natural sunlight:


Just goes to show that you don't need to spend big $$$$ to get something completely gorgeous!

  1. I really like the purple shade :) I actually have Silver Pink, I bought because it looked like OPI Chapel Of Love which was used on my toes in salon.

  2. Ohhhh I love the blue so much! I think I'm going to need to find an ulta3 stockist near me :p


  3. You got my attention with that title. All of these colours are perfect for summer!

  4. I love Hollywood! They are indeed perfect for summer :)

  5. Su - Silver Pink is all kinds of lovely and I bet it would look great against your skin tone too.

    Gianna - Hollywood is a little special IMO. It's a dark blue that still actually looks blue - Get it!

    Vita - Oh glad you like the colours. I think I'm missing a great green... I might need to hunt one down.

    Vintage - you must get it lovely. It's gorgeous!
