Ulta3 Lollypop Lilac

I love it when you buy a polish that you have no expectations about and when applied, it doesn't just impress you - it completely blows you away.

The Ulta3 range is the "cheapie" polish brand you find in chemists over here in Australia. It's about $2.50 a bottle and you pretty much know it's going to suck but you buy it anyway because it looks promising in the bottle even though you know you're going to be bitterly disappointed. You know the ones I'm talking about right?

Well it seems like this brand might have picked up its act since the last time I purchased one of their polishes. This is Lollypop Lilac and it's a light purple foil! Its smooth two coater, dries pretty much straight away and makes one helluva stamping polish. As far as I can see, this polish just hit it out of the ball park.
I think I might go track down some more of these to see if I just got lucky or if this is a truly awesome discovery for polish addicts everywhere.

Your thoughts? Winner or loser? Do you have a polish brand where you are like this? Have you given it another go and been surprised? Or maybe you just had your suspicions confirmed that it really is a crap brand?

That's it from me today.

Be awesome to each other.

  3. I absolutely know what you are talking about. I know some of those nail polishes but it's just so tempting!!! :P I always give them a second chance ;)

  4. Gorgeous colour. All my Ulta3's are really good, although I've only got them in the last month so maybe they've changed their fromula recently.

  5. I have this one and love it! Got it as a freebie when I brought some barry m from crush cosmetics. They know what I like. lol
