I was checking out at Ulta the other day, and this little beauty caught my eye. I had heard about the Electric Palette being released from UD, but I didn't know they were releasing nail polish in the same line. These retail for $12, and although they are mini-size, I think that's a pretty good deal (full-size is $15 a pop).
|L to R: Deep End, Goldmine, Woodstock|
|Deep End: A peacock, green-blue metallic|
|Goldmine: A gold, glitter top-coat|
|Woodstock: A neon-pink creme|
Deep End was the color I was most attracted to in this set, and it mostly did not disappoint. It was surprisingly sheer, and I had to use three coats to get to the opacity seen here. It also took forever to dry, which was annoying. Granted, I'm one of those people who needs to touch everything as soon as I finish painting my nails, but this polish still dented even about 10 minutes after I had finished (That includes me trying to 'dry' them under cold water). Despite these faults, the color is absolutely gorgeous. And depending on the lighting, it will look more blue or more green. I didn't use a top-coat, because I like to see the natural finish and how long the polish will last without one. This polish was so shiny, I don't think I would bother using a top-coat anyway, and it lasted 4 days before I started noticing any chipping. If you don't mind working a little harder for your manicure, this is a great color, but if you're feeling a little more low-maintenance, you might not be too fond of this little guy.

I honestly didn't think I'd like the gold glitter paired with Deep End, but it pleasantly surprised me. I've been enjoying glitter as an accent on my ring and pinky-fingers, so that's what I did here. This glitter distributes pretty well, and is nicely build-able if you're a fan of some serious sparkle. I like how it enhanced the peacock effect of Deep End on my nails.

Overall, I'm pleased with this trio. I don't think it's necessarily a must-have, but I also don't feel like I wasted my money. I enjoy all three polishes, and I think this set is a nice way to try out some UD polishes if you're like me, and haven't given any of the full-sizes a go (Or if you're like me in that you enjoy hoarding mini nail-polishes). Have you tried any polish from UD? What did you think?
