Hello! I know the ulta3 Speckled Egg Collection has been out for a while now, but I only recently found a stockist near me and figured I’ll still share it with you anyway. I bought Hippidy Hop, Hop Pink and Egg-cellent. I love the names! Such fun Easter names, it’s one of the things I really like about ulta3 – it has fun with its names and thinks a bit outside the box. I did notice this collection has been made in China (PRC) again, which is strange as only recently ulta3 changed its production to Taiwan. I’m not sure if this is a permanent thing, but I thought it interesting to point out. See the photo below of Hippidy Hop with a polish that says is made in Taiwan.
But, moving on to Hippidy Hop! From the bottle it looks fantastic but sadly the glitters just don’t want to come out! The polish itself is also really thick for glitter to be suspended in, so I think this has something to do with it. I couldn’t really fish for the glitter either, so it’s not as speckled as what I would like. But in saying that there were no actual problems with the polish, it applied fine. What you see is two coats with Seche. A purple creme-like base with large and small black glitters.
Next up is Hop Pink. I thought this would have the same issues as Hippidy Hop, but not at all. Everything is perfect – application was a cinch and the glitters knew what they were doing in this one. What you see is two coats with Seche. A hot pink creme-like base with large and small black glitters.
Lastly, Egg-cellent. This is my favourite, which is strange for me as I’m not a fan of green polishes but this dusty pastel green really won me over. It was just like Hop Pink as well, which was a massive relief. What you see is two coats with Seche. Like the others, it contains both large and small black glitters.

Also with this collection ulta3 has upped the price to AU$3 (usually AU$2). I am not sure if this is to maybe get us ready for a price hike in the future? This collection is being sold as a “limited edition” so maybe that’s the difference? Buy up I say while ulta3s are AU$2! Also, I should mention that there are three other colours to the collection: Blue Bunny, Bunny Bloom and Hot Cross Fun. From what I’ve read these are getting mixed reviews, too. Thanks for reading!
