Fantastic quality for the price
I have many Ulta3 nail polishes mostly because they are affordable and I am a nailart addict.
I agree that you need more than 1 coat however I find the first coat dries very quickly and if you apply second coat correctly, you don't need a 3rd coat of polish.
I also find them lasting for a few days if you apply top coat which I use Ulta3's clear rather than top coat.
Make sure you apply a tick second layer and let it dry.

Black Satin - Rich Black With Gloss Finish
The nail polish comes in a round glass bottle with an applicator brush lid.
I have Black Satin, a rich bold black with a glossy finish.
The brush is a standard nail polish applicator brush, long flexible bristles, a round design.
The polish has a mid thickness smooth flow consistency.
It does have the strong nail polish smell.
I prep nails, file, push back cuticles and apply clear base coat before the colour.
Let the base dry and apply 3 thin coats of Black Satin letting it dry between each coat.
Three coats gives full block colour of shiny black.
I like to apply a clear top coat to finish the manicure.
I find it helps the nail colour wear for longer, the polish chips easily if you don't.
Black Satin is a rocking shade, looks excellent, love black nails.
Ulta 3 is a wonderful budget friendly polish, the array of colours to choose from is huge, its great.

not really opaque
The colour is great! But it 100% needs more than one coat to even get the colour standing out. As a nail artist...I need colours which are going to stand out boldly and that are opaque enough, because when I am working with more than 1 finger at a time, I do not have the time to continuously wait for it to try to apply a top coat...I do have customers :)
Get dark shades and colours which do not have even a hint of shine in them. Stick with matte or gloss.
People who have the time to apply 3 or more coats.

Awesome colour range
I absolutely love this nail polish. The colour range is impressive, it lasts ages on my (toe) nails with a clear top coat without chipping and is super affordable. There is a colour to suit everyone and being $2rrp it's not a huge outlay to try new colours and expand my collection!

This is a great nail polish, it's so affordable and you can't pick some up for $2! Now that's a score!
Before you think "cheep and nasty" this nail polish deserves a gold star! I love this nail polish, it last so long!
I just apply 2 coats and the colour is so bright and looks so beautiful, they don't stink or have a yucky smell, they are so easy to apply and finish so nicely with a great shine!
This nail polish has a MASSIVE range of colours from natural colours to bright fluro colours. They last so long without chipping!
They are amazing! And dry fast too!

Great Colour Range.
Frankly I don't even know how many colours I have now. Cheep Cheerful with great coverage I think this is a must have. It's a bit of a lucky dip colour wise to see if coverage is as good from bottle to bottle but the price means I'll continue to risk it.

Best in Beauty 2014 - no vote
This is a great priced product and definitely value for money but would I buy this again?
Unlike some of the other nail products out there I find this frustrating to apply. The colour is not greatly pigmented therefore I need to apply this numerous times.
I’m not sure if it is just me but the finish is also super streaky too and I find that it does not last long at all. For some for $2 the longevity is fine but since I am not great at the application to begin with I do not want to constantly remove and reapply the nail polish.
My experience has comes from the use of three different bottles/colours and the results were the same for all three. A great priced nail polish and a great range of colours but sadly not a product for me.
spend a couple more dollars and get a better quality product
those who have time to constantly fix up or reapply nail polish

Do you know how difficult it is for me to avoid buying more nail polish to sustain my addiction when these nail polishes pop up in almost every pharmacy and department store at just $2 a bottle?!? $2, that’s insane, it means I can have a bottle in every single colour of the rainbow, and not only that, they aren’t just a cheap polish, with a quality that reflects the price, they are actually of a pretty decent quality. I’ve bought so many of these, and they update the colour ranges all the time which makes them practically irresistible. I always use a base and a top coat, and these polishes go on nice and smooth, true to colour, and have decent staying power. I actually don’t own too many plain colours, because their glitter polishes are just too darn alluring, and my only disappointment is that they are difficult to remove (as with pretty much all glitter polishes). You can get pretty much any colour of glitter that you desire, my personal favourite is ‘Over the Rainbow’ which is a mixed rainbow glitter which can be worn over pretty much any colour polish, though I love to wear it over a bubblegum pink, I always get so many compliments. It has a slightly gluey consistency to it, but it goes on just fine, and it doesn’t seem to have a very strong smell to it either. The absolute worst (BEST!!!) thing that this company has done most recently, is that they’ve set up a vending machine of products at Southern Cross Station. Thank goodness I don’t live in Melbourne, I hope for the sake of my purse that they don’t ever bring one to my local train stations! Overall, these are great little polishes, they’re in a decent sized bottle with a nicely sized brush meaning easy application. For $2 a bottle they’re well worth the cost, and with their incredible range you can get pretty much any colour you’re looking for.
Use these polishes with a base and top coat, it gives them that little bit of extra staying power, and also helps to remove the glitter polishes that refuse to budge.
Anyone looking for a decent nail polish, at a great, low price, and if you’re after one specific colour or glitter. These would also make great polishes for teens, who want the latest colour or glitter without having to spend too much.
