2011 Nail designs retrospective.. PART 3..

I was stalking the forums looking for ideas for nail designs when I came across the wonderful vogue forums, with a thread dedicated to ulta3 nail polish.

I went to the Warehouse Sale in April 2011 and purchased other beauty stuff, but my faves are the Ulta3 nail polishes I stocked up on.
18 nail polishes all up- 1 ulta3 was for free with voucher, 1 covergirl brand, 2 silver nail art, 2 pink nail art.
so in total 13 ulta3 polishes.
the colours were a bit, blah, but cause they were discontinued or left over stock I thought I should grab them while they were still available.

The week later I also went to my local Terry White chemist to stock up on these snazzy looking ulta3 polishes-- bargain price of $2 each..
you want to see a nail design using the ulta polish?
Here it goes..

Base polish: ulta3 twilight fever
Stamping polish: TBN silver
image plate: BM20 (ferny design)
-- with the top coat, it was so hard for me to capture the true beautiful shimmer colours in the base polish.

Base polish: ulta3 blossom fever
Stamping polish: konad pastel blue
image plate: BM16 (zebra print)
-- I loved the base polish, it also had a beautiful shimmer to it (red), but the nail design reminded me of blue vein cheese- I also think I had it stamped on upside down?

The blossom fever is much the same colour as the ulta3 i also have in baby pink.
The slight differences are the shimmers, with blossom fever having the red and baby pink having a whitish pearl shimmer.
Both lovely and both different :)

This is of ulta3 twilight fever again. bad camera- sorry you can barely tell.
Base polish: ulta3 twilight fever
Stamping polish: konad white
image plate:BM05 (thumb), BM18 (tips)
-- This is a bit of a dodgy job on the tips- still practising?- but i love the thumb design.
