Ulta3 Silver Glitter Mark II

A couple of months ago, when the latest Ulta3 colours hit Australian Pharmacies, I read on the Vogue forum that someone (I've now checked and it was 'Shamisen') saw some holographic glitter in the Silver Glitter polish they saw.  I was intrigued and set out to find a 'new' bottle of Silver Glitter.

I'm soooo glad I did.  I had previously blogged that the Ulta3 Silver Glitter was, well rather shitty. The coverage was terrible and it really was only a top coat at best.  But the new silver glitter is simply sensational.

First are some comparison photos.  Index and ring finger have one coat of the new silver glitter, middle and pinky one coat of old silver glitter (both over black).

Next is two coats of both the new and old Silver Glitter.

And a picture in full sun to show the great shine and blinginess of the new silver.  You can even see some of the holo glitter reflections on the nail.

Here is a bottle comparison.  As you can see, there are some little circular holo bits in the bottle, you can see them shining blue and green in the front bottle.

Here is an up close of the new bottle, look there is even some tiny string holo glitter in there.

Huge improvement with this one, totally worth the $2.25 for a new bottle of silver glitter.  You can tell if it's a new bottle if it has the flower petal motif in the top right of the label.  I 'm going to use my old silver glitter to franken with.  Has anyone seen any others that may have changed formula?


  1. Wow, thats a massive difference. I'm off to the chemist tonight to get some of that

  2. awwwww, totally have to go and buy that one now =)
    I'm not a big fan of the ulta3 glitters for the exact reason as you said they are shitty and nothing special.
