Out of all these, my favourites are: Celebutant, Gossip, A-Lister and Triple Threat. Showstopper didn’t impress me at all. I love that the glitters were quite densely packed making application really easy.

Ulta3 – Twilight Fever

Ulta3 Twilight Fever

Now THIS is what I call an amazing dupe. This is a fantastic dupe of Chanel Paradoxal at a fraction of the price tag. Check out Carina’s swatches here to see just how close of a match it is.

Ulta3 - Twilight Fever in natural light

Twilight Fever was perfect in two coats and topped with Seche Vite Top Coat. I love this shade. In the shade, it’s a brown base with just a hint of purple but in the sunlight – BAM! The purple just shines through.

I love a great bargain and the Ulta3 nail polishes definitely tick all the right boxes – cheap, great colour selection and great quality. The colour ranges do differ from place to place. I always find them in a bin lol and you just got to sort through the bin to find the nice shades. I found this at my local ChemistWorks so have a quick peek at your local chemists!
