Salon Perfect Neon Collision Swatches

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Thursday!!! 

   Ahhh remember the days of etsy-stalking the Nail-Venturous shop for Floam? I sure do... I remember getting "cart jacked" so many times. I remember throwing hissy fits. I remember the day I finally got Floam in my hands thanks to a wonderful reader. It was a most glorious day. I also remember wondering how long it would take mainstream polish companies to catch on and start releasing dupes of indies.. The answer to that.... about a year and a half...  
  Enter the Salon Perfect Neon Collision Collection, available at Wal Mart, right MEOW! If you were a fan of Floam and all the other "floamy" releases, you will love the Neon Collision glitters. These neon glitter polishes are incredibly bright, fun and reminiscent of Floam. They even released a dead on dupe for Floam, which I will be covering in a later post. Micro neon glitters densely packed in a clear base? I'll take it in every single color combo you can think of!! 

Salon Perfect Zapped over LVX Mynt

 Zapped is a bright, lime neon Green and Blue neon glitter blend suspended in a clear base. The blend is heavier on the Green that it is on the Blue so it creates a cool, speckled effect. The spread of glitter is good on these, just a bit thick, not problematic. I think they could be worn by themselves, but I decided to layer all my Neon Collision shades for my swatches. I used Two coats of Zapped over my base color. 

Salon Perfect Bang over LVX Deco

Bang is an awesome blend of Neon Orange and Marigold glitter in a clear base. This one is the only one that has two different sizes of glitter as it has slightly larger Marigold hexes. I had a HARD time photographing this because it is SOOOOOO bright! I used Two coats of Bang over my base color. 

Salon Perfect Shocked over Sation Queenie in a Bottle

Zapped is an even mix of neon Pink and Blue glitter suspended in a clear base. I'd say this is most like Pink Floam. This baby was one of my faves in the bunch. I used Two coats of Zapped over my base color. 

  These babies are top coat eaters!!! You can see that on my photo of Shocked(Pink one). I had top coated it and by the time I had my photo, the top coat had settled into the glitter. So a good top coat is a must to smooth out these pretties. That said, these are awesome, bright, neon and badass!! I can't wait to wear and comp the Floam dupe for you guys! The Floam dupe, btw, is called Kaboom and I will be sharing that one by itself soon. I don't have a fave, I adore all of these!! I was always a sucker for this "colored sand" looking polishes.  

 What are your thoughts on the Neon Collision glitters?

  2. I picked up two of these a few months ago.... The pink and the floam dupe. You can wear them on their own... It builds up nicely after 3 good coats, but the wear on them is terrible. Like entire finger flaking off terrible! Layering them was a good choice. :) I love them!

  3. Oh yeah, I had the sheets happening when I wore Floam on it's own. I figured these would have the same "issue". They are so awesome though. I dont even care about the poor wear haha.

  5. these are beautiful on you. I don't know what it is/was about Floam that I thought I had to have it. But once I got it almost a year ago???...I haven't even worn it yet. I don't know if I got it just because I thought I should as a nail blogger or if I really did like it??? My kids wore it a few times, I just haven't had the urge to try it on myself. I really like these though,....

  7. I wanted to love these so bad. I love all the photos I see of them but for the life of me I could not get these to spread evenly. I have 3, the pink the orange and the floam dupe. Any tricks to get them to spread...?

  9. I found this one too! The Floam dupe... although it has a different name. I think mine is called Kaboom! but it's the same polish. Did they rename it?

  10. The Floam dupe is called Kaboom. It is not shown in this post because I will be covering that particular glitter by itself.

  12. I love the look of Bang! So pretty! I've been seeing these for a little while now in my local Walmart, but for some reason never picked them up. I will now! It'd be cool if they came out with more colors too!

  18. I would love these but cannot get my hands on them in the UK.

    I contacted Salon Perfect's facebook page to see if they have a UK supplier but never got a response :-(

  19. The two first are really awesome, but I'm not to keen on the last one!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ah, right, derp. Just looked again and Zapped is definitely lighter. Sorry for the brain fart. Looking forward to seeing your post on it! x

  21. It looked sooo much better when I managed to smooth it out with top coat. I didnt top coat it enough before photographing it, so it looks lumpy :(

  22. Hi Jo, you can buy a full set via eBay for about £25 plus postage. I'm going to ask Sally Magpies if she can get them in her shop too :-)
