Salon Perfect's Paint the Town Red, White and Blue collection

Sunday, June 29, 2014


The fourth of July means a lot to me. The birth of a country. The beginnings of freedom. And being able to celebrate the holiday with friends and family makes it extra special. So I usually try and create a patriotic mani. But time is limited lately, so I couldn't go all out. But the new collection from Salon Perfect makes it easy.

Salon Perfect has been busy lately and they just keep knocking them out of the park. They have released the Paint the Town Red, White and Blue collection. This affordable and stylish collection is available at Walmart and has six gorgeous polishes and nine topcoats. 
 
I have already posted some of the collection here and here, so let's take a look at the rest of it.

Boom Boom Boom is a red, white and blue confetti of small matte glitters. It applied easily and the glitter spread evenly. I have it on here over Sugar Cube

Fool's Gold is a rich multi-shape and size glitter. It applies wonderfully and spreads evenly. I have it on here over Blue Ribbon

Grand Finale is a red, silver and blue bar glitter top coat. I have never figured out the trick to applying bar glitter. But this seemed to go on well. I have it on here over Wild Blue Yonder

Stars and Stripes has small red and silver bar glitter and blue star glitter. It applied well, although I did have to shift the stars around a little. I have it on here over Gold Leaf

He's With Me is a gorgeous shimmery cranberry red polish. The shimmer of the microglitter is amazing. It's one of those "lit from within" looks that I love so much. This is two coats with a top coat of Crystal Clear.

Save Me a Spot has red, white and blue round glitters. I had to fish for the glitter and move them around a bit. But I love the way it looks over He's With Me.

Silver Sparkler is a great topcoat. It has multi-shape and size holographic silver glitter pieces. I had no issues with application. I have it on here over Paint the Town Red.


Speck-tacular has red, white and blue small round matte glitters. It applied well. I have it on here over Wild Blue Yonder.

July 4th nail art with Salon Perfect


Time keeps whipping by me. The summer is going to be gone before I know it. But I intend to enjoy every last second of the summer. And Salon Perfect is making it quick and easy with their new products.

Salon Perfect has been busy lately and they just keep knocking them out of the park. They have released the Paint the Town Red, White and Blue collection. This affordable and stylish collection is available at Walmart and has six gorgeous polishes and nine topcoats. 
I used Sugar Cube, Blue Ribbon and Twinkle Twinkle for this nail art. I also used Salon Perfect's nail art tape. 

I started of with Sugar Cube, which is an amazing white cream polish that is the perfect base for nail art. Then I used scotch tape and applied a diagonal blue section on my nail using Blue Ribbon. Blue Ribbon is a deep shimmery navy blue. Then I used the nail art tape for the red stripes and added dots of Twinkle Twinkle for the stars. Sounds easy doesn't it? It really is.

 The dotting tools and nail art brush are sturdy. They are also affordable at $3.98.

The striping tape is great too. You get four rolls of tape for $1.98.



The hardest part of using nail art tape is when you lose the end of the tape. It is almost impossible to find the end of it again. Let me show you what I use to combat the battle of the ends of the tape.

 
Yep, it's just an empty scotch tape dispenser. I have used mine a lot and it's pretty scratched up. But it still works great. I still use scissors to cut the tape as the edge isn't sharp enough to cut the thin tape. But it sure makes it easy to find that illusive loose end of tape.

These polishes applied wonderfully - silky smooth and even. These polishes from the Summer 2014 collection are stunning. 

Let's take a look.

Who would have thought that water marbling with a shimmer, jelly and matte polish would create such a stunning water marble? I love the way the accent nail turned out. I may have to do this on all my nails!

The creator's family is interested in geology so all of their nail polishes are inspired by rocks, gems and minerals. Their nail polishes are cruelty 3-Free (free from Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde and Toluene). 


These polishes are gorgeous and well worth picking up and adding to your stash. They are available on the Liquidus Etsy store for $9.
