Hello! Today I have Ulta3 Soft Hydrangea to show you. I bought it over the weekend along with nine other Ulta3 nail polishes as one of my favourite places to shop for Ulta3, Good Price Pharmacy Warehouse in Hobart’s CBD, had got new stock in. Sure, the collections are pretty behind, but it’s the first time I’d ever seen them so I just had to have them. Here’s what I got:
From left: Enchanted, Antique Gold, Cocoa, Jade, Shiraz and Copper, all from the Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection. I think I’m missing a couple so I may be back for more. These are also different to normal Ulta3 polish bottles in that they have black lids. I don’t know if I like it. I suppose it was done to match the deep colours of the polishes.
From left: Corsican Rose and Soft Hydrangea from the 2012 Pastel Collection and English Rose and Foxy Russet. Both English Rose and Foxy Russet are from when Ulta3 still manufactured in Australia, so I was lucky with those two purchases.
Anyway, after that detour, back to Soft Hydrangea. It’s a beautiful pastel blue creme with just a hint of pink shimmer. I found it easy to apply and used two coats for full opacity.
It’s really pretty, isn’t it? I was surprised with how much I liked it. Pity we’re going into winter and this will make my hands look like they’re freezing off! I thought it would look good with some nail art so I added Pretty Serious BSOD to it. BSOD stands for blue screen of death, named after what happens on the monitor when a PC dies sometimes. I’ve never had to happen to me though! BSOD is an intense blue glitter in a blue base that just looks so deep when on the nail.
While all I used for the nail art was nail tape, I was impressed with how it turned out. For once I had great precision with not getting polish everywhere when I was trying to apply it delicately. So maybe I’m getting better, hey? What do you think? I would love your opinion. Thanks for reading!
