Ulta Envy

Ulta Envy is a gorgeous emerald green shimmer. Seriously, it's bright and eye catching. But what puzzles me is how different it looks from the bottle - the bottle looks like a peacock green with a possible purple duochrome. The duochrome doesn't transfer to the nail at all, which I have had happen before, but this is not peacock green, it's most definitely emerald on your nails.
Pigmentation was good, I used three coats here for full opacity, and I am getting used to the stumpy brush. I really do wish they were a bit longer.

I tried to capture what this looked like in the bottle - if you enlarge it, you can see the hint of duochrome at the base of the bottle. No matter, it's such a gorgeous shade and I think it would make a great polish over the holidays also.

  1. oooh! such a gorgeous color! shame on them tho, for making us think it would be a duo-chrome. hate it when polish doesn't transfer to the nail like you think it will.
