Ulta3 Candy Cane - Summer collection Part 2

Continuing with part two of the Ulta2 candy cane polishes.

Flirty Bikini - 2 coats. More opaque than many of the other polishes in the cane. A blue toned pink creme.  Most similar to Ulta3 Plum Violet, but this is more purple.

Acapulco bliss - 3 coats. A bright pink base with a nice purple blue shimmer.  Along the same lines as Ulta3 Bouquet, but the base is not as red and the shimmer is more subtle.  This one is really pretty.

Sea breeze swirl - 2 coats.  A medium shade mint green.  It's like utla3 Mojito but with extra white added.  Also a pretty one.

Calypso holiday - 3 coats. Medium bright blue with a strong shimmer, which means its a little frosty and will show brush strokes. Nice colour if you can handle the frostiness.

Pacific splash - 4 coats. I was so looking forward to this one, but damn, it was so watery it needed four coats to reach opacity. Strong blue shimmer which means it shows some brush marks, but not as frosty as Calypso Holiday. Beautiful, if it weren't for the 4 required coats.  Similar to Hollywood, but this is a richer blue.

So there you have them, a great variety of colours and an excellent price.  At $12.95 for all 10 polishes, this is a perfect stocking filler!


  1. Wonderful post, as always! Funnily enough, I actually just picked up the candycane today! Can't wait to play with them, they are all so pretty!

  2. acapulco bliss reminds me of OPI im all ears. possible dupes?

  3. These all look like great basics! Some really fun shades too. Although these are a bit summery for a candy cane lol! I LOVE Sea breeze swirl.
