Amazing quality for the price paid
I don't own that many colours but I have enough to say that these nail polishes are incredible! Most of the time I need around 2-3 layers of polish to get a perfect solid colour. Polish seems to dry quite quickly and usually isn't streaky. The only streaky one I've tried was a transparent pink colour but otherwise most were fine.
What surprised me the most about this product was how long lasting it was! I wore it for at least 5 days before it started chipping slightly on the sides. Furthermore my nails grow fast so after about a week and a half, I could actually see how much my nail had grown and most of the polish was still there. That in itself is amazing, especially for a product that only costs $2.
Also the colour range is pretty large so there'll definitely be a colour to suit everyone. My favourites are the shimmery pinks and purples.

These nail polishes are great quality and at only $2 it's a total bargain. The colour range is excellent and the wear time and application are great.

Best Nail Polish Ever
I love Ulta3 Nail polishes, not only is their range so extensive in terms of colours and textures (glitter etc) they are soo cheap as well. For $2 you cannot get any better. I have tried a lot of the "cheap" nail polishes and this one beats them all, including the expensive ones. It applys well, leaves no streaks, has a great colour with only 1 application, lasts for a week without cracking or chipping. I use the natural colour as base coast, top coat and when I just want my nails to shine. The only problem is every time I pass a chemist I cannot resist another to add to my collection =)

In this case Cheap = Best
Aside from OPI and Essie this is my go-to nail polish. It's so great because the quality is almost right up there with my favourites but SO much cheaper. It means I can get a huge variety of colours for the price of only one or 2 OPI ;)

Incredible quality and price
I have just counted, and I own 13 shades in the Ulta3 range, and I must say they are all incredible!
They go on smoothly and offer great colour with 2 coats.
I use both the base coat and the non chip top coat, which are both in the $2 range and are among the best base and top coats I have used. The polishes all last so well without chipping, particularly when using the non chip top coat.
Current Pedi: Ulta3 base coat, Ulta3 mojito (1 coat for a light base colour), Ulta3 New Years Eve (3 coats as I love lots and lots of glitter!) and Ulta 3 Non Chip, and have been for over a week now, and it is still as fresh and vibrant and glittery as the day I applied it!
If Ulta3 does read this, please bring back Earth! It is my all time favourite nail polish!
I will only be buying Ulta3 from now on :D

Not bad for the price!
I've got a few bottles of Ulta3 nail polish. It's not my first choice when it comes to nail polish, but if I'm looking for a particular colour for a one off use (eg fancy dress parties, footy colours) it's perfect! The colour chips after a day or so, but for $2 who would complain! The colours are highly pigmented, and there is a wide choice of colours available. If you are one to only paint your nails once a week, Ulta3 probably wouldn't suit you, but if you only want the colour to last a day or two, this is a great budget buy.
TIP: make sure you use a base coat with darker colours. I had purple nails for quite a few days after removing the polish. Oops!

Cheap and cheerful!
I own about 10 bottles of Ulta 3 nail polishes ranging from cream shades, metallic shimmers and glitters, my two favourites being Stop the Press ( black and white speckles) and Triple Threat (black jelly with multi coloured fine glitter).
The polishes are such good value, at only $2 for a bottle of nail polish you can afford to treat yourself to a couple of bottles and not feel guilty. The best thing about Ulta3 nail polishes is that although the polishes are very affordable they aren't cheap and nasty, the quality is very good!
I usually apply two coats of polish and this usually is sufficient for a good finish, my manicure usually lasts about three to four days before showing a bit of tip wear or when it starts to chip. Some of the polishes apply a bit streaky, but generally most apply quite well and the brush is a good size to allow you to precisely apply your polish.
There are also so many colours to choose from and I am positive there is a shade to suit everyone... If you can stop at one...I usually buy at least two or three because they are so affordable!

Best In Beauty 2013
I cannot believe how cheap these nail polishes are but yet how great the quality is...I have 4 of these from a baby pink shade to a deep burgundy shade to a bright red to a metallic aqua. They all, no matter what shade and depth of colour, look great. The polish always applies smoothly to my nails, I find the polish dries quicker than other polishes and the result is shiny, attractive nails.
I cannot recommend these beauties highly enough!

Worthy of Best in Beauty
Since last writing my review on Ulta 3 nail polish, I counted how bottles I now have and the answer is 47 . No wonder I feel that Ulta 3 is worthy of a Best in Beauty Award.
Ulta 3 nail polish is so affordable at $2 a 13 ml bottle that it is hard to walk by the Ulta 3 Stand at the Chemist without stopping to have a look.... and if their price doesn't first attract you, then their variety of colours certainly will !
Unlike other cheaper brands of nail polish, Ulta 3 does not forgo quality in favour of price. They are still good quality nail polish and they apply smoothly to the nail. Two coats are usually all it takes for good coverage.
Because I am into nail art, I possess many colours ranging from pastels (e.g. lagoon, soft hydrangea) to the richest frosts (e.g. pinot, black plum). For those who like solid colours, there are always the cremes in an assortment of light (e.g. dahlia), dark (e.g. black satin) and neon (e.g. fruit tingle, jelly) colours.
To add more interest, Ulta 3 has glitter nail polish in varying glitter sizes and colours too.
Ulta 3 accomodates for my basic manicure needs in that they supply base coat and a very good top coat called "Non Chip". I am so impressed with the top coat that I've bought 3 bottles and using it certainly prevents chipping. The nail polish is more likely to wear away slowly at the free edge than chip.
I cannot rave more about Ulta 3 nail polish because for their price, they are definitely worth it !!!

Best in Beauty 2013
No matter how many nail polishes I own, Ulta3 polishes are still my favourite range out there. There isn't too much you can fault them with. The colour range is their strongest aspect. You can find a colour for any need and the colour Watermelon and Hollywood remain some of my favourite shades in my entire collection. The formula is also impressive quality. It can range slightly but I have found that most polishes in the range are opaque, apply easily and dry reasonably fast. There are a few duds in the collection but I have bought a $20 nail polish that hasn't preformed like the rest of the brand so for $2 you can't complain. They also preform well in the long term. I usually get about 5 days wear out of any other the polishes in the range which is as good as any of my other 'high end' polishes.
If you haven't tried any yet because you are worried about the quality, don't be. Grab a few and watch your nail polish collection grow as you keep grabbing another bottle each time you pass them in the stores.
