Ulta For Bitten

I have another Ulta polish for you today- For Bitten. For Bitten is a very pretty black jelly polish with tons of red shimmer crammed in. The shimmer particles are pretty large, almost like bits of glitter and even though the base of the polish is black, you can always see the red shimmer. I hate those black-based glitter polishes where the black base hides all of the glitter. Luckily, this is not For Bitten's problem.

For Bitten's problem is lack of wear time. Just like the other Ulta polish I reviewed, Total Eclipse, For Bitten started chipping on the second day of wear. I used China Glaze Fast Forward top coat, which dries quickly, but really does not prevent chipping at all. Maybe these Ulta polishes would be better with a different top coat. However, as it is right now, I find that they don't wear well.

Overall, I like Ulta's formula in terms of application and I also like their color choices. I just wish these polishes lasted longer on the nail.

Ulta polishes are available at an Ulta near you or online at Ulta.

That's a gorgeous polish--the Ulta brand doesn't seem to get a lot of attention and to be honest I'm not normally drawn to their colors, but this one is great!
