NOTD! Ulta3 ‘Celebutant’

Next up in Ulta3’s Glitterati Collection is ‘Celebutant’ (to see my NOTD featuring ‘A-Lister’ click here). Thanks to my new Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, I love being able to always have perfectly polished nails to show you all 🙂

Can you tell I love Seche Vite? I know I’m totally late onto the bandwagon but it means that I can put bubby to bed at night, do my nails, wait a couple of minutes then hop into bed myself without have to worry about the doona or sheets leaving crinkle/smudge marks on my semi-dried nails. It also adds an amazing shine to my polish unlike any other top coat I’ve tried – if you’ve ever looked at nail bloggers’ pictures and marvelled at how glassy their nails are, it is likely to be Seche Vite. Life-changing stuff!

Ulta3 ‘Celebutant’ is a lovely shimmery fuchsia polish with silver shimmer mixed through. It is of a thicker consistency but application was fantastic and totally opaque within 2 coats. This polish lasted 3-4 days chip-free (I wash my hands a million times a day and don’t wear gloves while washing dishes – shh!) so the lasting power is also really good which makes Ulta3 polishes such great value at only $2.00 per bottle.

To find an Ulta3 stockist near you, visit their website here. For those of you playing along from Perth and looking for this collection, I have only managed to find this at Chemmart in Palmyra (next to the Stammers Shopping Arcade on Canning Highway) and Amcal Max at Cockburn Gateways Shopping Centre. Feel free to share in the comments if you have found this elsewhere as well!

I love how purple this polish is – it really brightens up the rainy, dreary spring weather we’ve been having here in Perth!

What colour helps brighten up a rainy day for you?


NOTD! Ulta3 ‘A-Lister’ & Essie ‘Mint Candy Apple’

It’s been some time since I’ve had colour on my nails so it felt right to choose something nice and bright! I’ve wanted to show you all the new Ulta3 Glitterati Collection as well, as I have such a weakness for glittery polishes and since I travelled far and wide to find all eleven polishes in this collection. Perth chemists are seriously behind the times with stocking this collection! Ulta3 is such a great value Australian brand – all their polishes are really affordable at $2.00 each so you never feel guilty picking up more than one polish (or eleven polishes in this case!).

I couldn’t decide which polish from the Glitterati collection to use first as they are all so pretty, so I’ve decided to go in alphabetical order. Without further ado, here is the first polish – A-Lister!

I used A-Lister on my accent nail to really highlight this polish. I used two coats of my absolute favourite polish colour, Essie ‘Mint Candy Apple’ on the rest of my nails and two coats of Ulta3 ‘A-Lister’ over two coats of Ulta3 ‘Corsican Rose’ on my accent nail.

Can you believe this is the first time I’ve done an accent nail? I really like the look so I’m sure there is going to be plenty of accent nails from now on!

A-Lister features three different-sized bright aqua glitter particles suspended in a clear base. Application was simple as the glitter is quite dense and I used two coats to get an even distribution of the glitter.

I topped everything off with my brand new Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat – almost every single nail blogger I follow uses Seche Vite and I wanted to try out this holy-grail product for myself. This stuff is seriously amazing, my nails were dry in minutes and I was able to carry on with my day. An absolute godsend for me as I have an active toddler to entertain all the time. I bought my Seche Vite from Crush Cosmetics ($14.95) and will be making sure I never ever run out!

Have you tried any Ulta3 polishes?

Thanks for reading 🙂
