Ulta3 Candy Couture Book of nail polish - Part 2

Continuing on with part two of my look at the Ulta3 Candy Couture Book of nail polish.  These three polishes are some of my favorite in the box.

Berry Blue - a medium toned dusty blue creme or maybe I should describe it as a dark cornflower blue. Formula was good and it was opaque in two coats.  Please disregard the star burst light reflections on my nails, it was only after I looked at these photos and then checked my camera that I discovered a huge big finger print on my camera lens, courtesy of Miss Two.

Min-tea - a pastel mint green with a very pale silvery green shimmer.  Opaque at two coats, which made me very happy for this pastel shade. I'll include this one in my comparison post to show how it compares to Corsican Rose.

Toffee apple.  A medium toned dusty green, that leans blue. Another that is opaque in two coats. The polish is not streaky, the marks are the clouds in the sky.  I'll do a comparison of this one against Emerald Inten-city and Mermaid Dream.

Sugar sprinkles - Silver micro beads.  The bead size does vary a bit, but that doesn't worry me too much because it means the gaps can be neatly filled with some of the smaller beads if your feeling a little OCD.  To create this look, I just painted a thick coat of top coat down the centre of my nails.  I then poured the beads onto my nails and used the long straight edge of my clean up brush to neaten the edge of the beads on each side.

If you are looking for the Ulta3 Candy Couture book, then check the Ulta3 stockist locator. You can now also purchase Ulta3 online directly from the Heat Group, although I can't see the Candy Couture book for sale online.

I'll be back tomorrow with more shades, and another look with the micro beads.


  1. I love the way you used the beads!!

  2. I agree with Rainbowify - it's nice to see the beads used as accents rather than an all over effect. Very classy.

  3. Oh i love the colors!

  4. I love the colors!

  5. I'm also commenting to say how much I love the caviar bead stripe!
