Nail Venturous Floam - Salon Perfect Kaboom comparison

Monday, May 27, 2013

The new Salon Perfection Neon Collision has some people wondering how close Kaboom is to Floam. And if that sentence made sense to you then you, like me, spend way too much time with polish. But then we knew that already...

So I am comparing Nail Venturous Floam to Salon Perfect Kaboom for you.

Let's just jump right to the photos.

Here is a bottle shot of both. You can see that Kaboom looks slightly more green than Floam.

You can tell the difference on the nail. But the difference is not that great. Floam is slightly bluer than Kaboom. Both polishes are shown over Sinful Colors Unicorn. I used two coats of each.

What do you think? The difference is slight except for the price. The price for Kaboom is $3.98 at Walmart. I found Nail Venturous on wanelo.com for $14.99.

Salon Perfect was provided to me for an honest review. Nail Venturous was a gift.

  2. Wow they look almost the same, I think that Kaboom maybe needs less layers? Did you use the same amount of layers of both polishes?

  4. Hm, seems like Salon Perfect is taking a well known polish and selling it for cheaper. I'd rather spend my money on an indie brand that works hard

  6. SO glad you posted this! When I posted quick swatches yesterday, I knew Kaboom looked like Floam, but I don't own Floam so I couldn't do a comparison post. Great comparison - they really are so similar!

  8. I saw this today and passed. I know some people don't want to pay $10 for floam but indie sellers work hard and I rather buy the original.
