Ulta3 Speckled Nails Collection - An Easter Skittle Mani

When it comes to special events and holidays, I really do like to go all out. Give me a pair of bunny ears and I will rock those right through Easter, even if I am in public or pushing my way through a hard work day! It should come as no surprise then that the speckled nail trend is one I happily engage in - not just for Easter, but all year round! On our weekend away last week Mister Bovary bought me the whole new Ulta3 speckled nail collection - sometimes being indecisive turns into a positive thing ;)

I was most excited about Egg-Cellent and Hippidy Hop - and can we stop for a moment to squee at how cute the names of these polishes are? I think that it may limit their year-round appeal, but they are cute nonetheless. Perhaps a bit childish for though who are die-hard luxe lovers, but my Hourglass + Chanel are happy to share my heart with these happy little bottles.

In terms of quality these are the same as the usual Ulta3 formulas, with the disappointing being Blue Bunny. I tried for so long to get a single speckle out of the bottle to no avail, and the bright blue colour is like zinc cream. The easiest to apply was probably Hop Pink, which I suspect might also be one of the most popular shades from this collection.
I do apologise for the ragged short nails - work has ruined them in the past few weeks
Let's talk chocolate - anytime I receive one of those giant Cadbury bunnies for Easter, I end up breaking them up and handing them out at work or tempting Mumma Bovary into eating them. They are lovely, but the thought of eating that much plain chocolate is way too much for me and so I prefer to indulge in a few mini egg bags to enjoy over the long weekend. The Kinder eggs have delicious little chunks of hazelnut throughout and they really are yum, but I've also just tried the Cadbury mini speckled eggs which are pretty awesome too!
I'm working a little bit over the Easter weekend, but for the family celebrations I think I am going to wear Hippidy Hop with a few Hot Cross Fun spots in the corner. If you feel like getting into the Easter spirit with these polishes, they are out now and only $2.99 each (I got mine from Terry White Chemist in Rosebud!)
I hope you have a lovely relaxing Easter - would love to hear your Easter tidbits in the comments below!

    1. Try Terry White or Amcal, I find those pharmacies are faster at putting stock out than other chains! Good luck :)

  2. These polishes and their names look so adorable! I recently picked up one of Illamasqua's speckle polishes for only $5! I'm rocking that right now! I'm not sure if I'll be able to get these though because Ulta3 stockists around me are always iffy with their limited collections.
