Ulta Salon Formula Nail Lacquer 

Guest Review by Ria

My very generous sister (who was not so generous before marriage but as she now gets to spend  her husbands money) got me some nailpolishes from ULTA when she came down to India. Before this I had never heard about this brand and was like whatever. The colours were lovely and that’s what mattered.

Description- Salon Formula Nail Lacquer by ULTA in a quick-drying, chip resistant formula with a high shine finish the possibilities are endless! Finish guide: CR = Cream/SH = Shimmer/GL = Glitter

Shades- Dance Teal Dawn (SH), Fuchsiamania (CR), Love my Blackberry (CR)



Dance teal dawn is a metallic dark teal with very small shimmer. Fuchsiamania is a beautiful cream pink and Love my Blackberry is a dark bluish purple – the shade of a blackberry with a metallic edge!. I love the fact that these  dries quickly. I hate waiting and cream nailpolishes takes longer to dry but this is not the case here. Generally when I wear nailpaints it chips on me within 2-3 days but ULTA nailpolishes goes on a good 7 days without chipping. It gets easily removed with a nailpolish remover and does not leave my nails yellow. Application goes on pretty smooth without any streaks. For CR nailpaints one coat was enough but for SH I needed 2 coats for the colour to show through.


Pros of ULTA Salon Formula :

  • Comes in many shades
  • Comes in 3 type
  • Toulene free
  • Dries quickly
  • Last easily a week without chipping
  • Smooth and non streaky application


Cons of ULTA Salon Formula

  • Apart from the fact that its not available in India, i cant think of any


Rating- A

 Price 6$

Recommendation- The ULTA Salon Formula Nail Lacquer have a great shade selection, they are quick drying and do not chip easily.If you are in US then get some because these are cheap and you get a whole host of delicious colors which you otherwise might not get in India.

Dance teal dawn? What an innovative name! But there’s a fine line between it sounding cool n sounding cheesy lol! Nice ones Ria :-) 7 days wear-time is amazing
