I started with a coat of Nail Envy and then a nice opaque coat of light blue called Take Me To Your Chateau by Color Club. Then I applied my Kaboom glitter topper which has very tiny matte glitters in green and neon yellow. I expected the glitter to spread better since the pieces are so small, but I had to do a second coat to eliminate bald spots around the corners of my nails. It dries kinda bumpy and my one VERY thick coat of seche vite didn’t quite smooth it enough. I skipped the glitter on my accent nail and instead I hand painted a chevron tip with Orly Gumdrop (using the bottle brush that came with it). Then I made ten dots of yellow using AVON Inspire. I think it came out cool.
As far as Salon Perfect nail polish goes- the bottle says ‘Professional Nail Lacquer’. Well, I don’t know about all that! I bought two bottles that day, and the first one I tried chipped like crazy (it was a neon color called Flamingo Flair). Then, today’s Kaboom had a defective slanted brush. Instead of being straight or round… the brush tip was angled which made application difficult. I’m not too impressed. For $3.98 I think I can find a better quality polish. Even still, I’m not completely disappointed with my purchase. The look of this matte glitter is unique to my stash…so at least there’s that! Here’s a closeup of Kaboom.↓
UPDATE!!!!!!!!!! This nail polish started lifting off my nail within 8 hours of wear. So, now I can positively say that this brand of nail polish really falls short. The glitter just peeled right off in big sheets. The accent nails without the Salon Perfect were just fine and had no peeling. But there’s something in the Salon Perfect formula that just makes the polish lift right off my nails!! I have since found my walmart receipt and I will be returning both bottles. Good thing for their 90 day return policy!
Have you tried any polishes that disappointed you big time?? Most polishes are comparable in quality- it’s rare to find one that stinks this bad!
