St. Patrick's Day nail art created with Salon Perfect

Monday, March 2, 2015


Today I have for you a fun St. Patrick's Day nail art look created with a special collection from Salon Perfect. Four of the polishes are from the core line, and two of the polishes can only be obtained if you win a giveaway! (There's only 100 of these polishes.) They are custom-blended* polishes just for this giveaway. In other words, you can only own them if you win them. And the great news is -- twenty Set in Lacquer readers will win this St. Patrick's Day Collection. Yes, you read that right... 20 winners! The giveaway ends tomorrow, March 3, 2015.
You can enter the giveaway here

But in the meantime, let's look at a couple of the polishes. I couldn't decide what look I wanted to go for, so I created a mixed mani. I used KBShimmer nail vinyls to create the stripes on the index nail.

For this look, I used Sugar Cube - a pure white cream, Loopy Lime - a neon green creme, Sham-rock Your Socks Off - a fun green and white glitter (which is one of the custom blended polishes), Escape to Neverland - A Peter Pan green creme polish and Gold Leaf - a metallic gold polish. If you just can't wait to see if you win these, you can purchase the polishes from the core line at Walmart.

Then I added one of the custom-blended "only-own-it-if-you-win-it" glitters on my index nail. This is "Luck of the Irish." On the ring finger I added a wide diagonal stripe (I used KBShimmer's straight line nail vinyls to help) of Salon Perfect "Gold Leaf." The small shamrock was created using Loopy Lime.


Here's a closeup of Luck of the Irish. This clear based top coat has small green glitters and larger flakes of gold. It is perfect for St. Patrick's Day.

Foiled by a tree: Holiday nail art

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

I have a love/hate relationship with nail art foil. I love it, and it usually hates me. However, I had an idea and I just had to try it.

I decided to create a simple, abstract gold Christmas tree over a deep red polish. I am oh-so-pleased with the results!

Simple Foil Christmas Tree Nail Art

I started out with two coats of Sheswai Honeyfox. It is the perfect shade of red - at least I think so. Then I used a nail foil glue and painted a swishy line back and forth. (Yes, that's a technical term.) The glue I used is the kind that dries clear and stays tacky. I let it dry until completely clear and pressed a small piece of Salon Perfect Nail Foils to the nail. I rubbed my finger over the top to make sure it was adhered to the nail well. I peeled off the foil and peeked (I was afraid to look.) But it worked well! 


Then I decided I couldn't leave well enough alone and tried to add "icicles." I like it much better without the icicles.


What do you think? This was so easy and the end result is simple and elegant.

Neon flames (waves?) nail art

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

I often browse Pinterest to get inspiration for creating nail art. While scrolling through the photos last night, I spotted a neon flame nail art look from +Robin Moses and decided to try and recreate it. First, let me say that I am happy with the end result - but I am no Robin Moses. She makes it all look so easy! 

I started with a base color of Zoya Raven and then followed the steps she explained on her video. The only thing I changed was the yellow tint. +Salon Perfect Wowza Yellow worked well without thinning it down. The blues and greens you see are acrylic paint and the holographic glitter is some loose microglitter I use for adding to polish or using as an accent in nail art.

This look was relatively easy to create. If I had to do it again, I would make the base of the flames a little wider - OK, a lot wider. Mine look a little wimpy. But overall I am pleased with the look and wouldn't change anything. Is this look something you would try?

Most of the products in the post were purchased by me and some were sent for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Salon Perfect - Totally 80s Top Off top coats - swatches, review

Wednesday, July 30, 2014


+Salon Perfect has been kicking the polish out lately. The newest collections are dedicated to a decade and the 80s collection is, like totally, gorgeous.

There are two matte top coats in this collection. Both are bright and bold, just as the 80s were. One is even inspired by the Rubik's Cube. By the way, the Rubik's Cube turned 40 this year!

Let's move right into them. I will talk about the application of each polish separately. 

Ruby's Cube is multi-color square matte glitter. This top coat applies easily and there is no fishing for glitter. The colors are bright and bold and just as spell binding as that puzzle cube called the Rubik's Cube. I applied it over a triple gradient of Salon Perfect Yowza Yellow, Wild Blue Yonder and Tickled Pink. I finished it off with a top coat of Salon Perfect Crystal Clear.

Square Pegs is a top coat that is jam packed with neon square and circular matte glitters. It did require a little bit of fishing for glitter pieces, but I usually expect that with large shaped glitters. Just be patient, turn that bottle upside down for a few minutes and proceed. I have it on here over Salon Perfect Sugar Cube.

Salon Perfect Neon POP! Collection - swatches, review

Tuesday, July 22, 2014


Salon Perfect has been oh-so-busy lately. They have released an amazing collection of neon polishes - Neon POP! And these colors truly POP!

Neon nails are the it mani for summer and Salon Perfect’s new Neon POP collection gives you 12 bright and bold shades that will surely POP.

I have several of the shades for you and I am amazed at how bright and gorgeous they are - I was expecting bright. But not this much bright!

I applied all of these over Salon Perfect Sugar Cube. It's the perfect white to make those neon colors shout. And when I say "shout," I mean they really shout loud. The formula was wonderful. Neons are often known for having a finicky application - not these. I honestly had no issues.

I posted a couple of nail art looks last week. You can see those here. 

Let's take a look at the swatches. The photos don't quite capture the true neon-abilities of these polishes. All the swatches are two coats with a top coat unless I mention different.

Bermuda Baby is a vivid neon turquoise blue. I love this breath taking blue shade. It's as if the sky's intense color met with the aqua blue of the sea and combined forces to create a blue that would make an impact.

Fired Up Fuchsia is a sun-kissed neon pink with a hint of magenta to it. It's well... fuchsia. It will definitely be an eye-catcher as you carry on about your day - whether it be work, or pleasure.

Flamingo Flair isn't as bright as the others. But it's definitely brighter than this photo shows. I love this coral shade - it has the three "Cs" - classy, chic and classic.

Haute Pink is a mind-blower. Not only is it vivid and wonderful, it's also more of an orange shade. I think I would call this a deep, intense tangerine.

Loopy Lime will practically knock your socks off. This neon lime is intense, bright and breath taking. If you want bright, this is the shade for you. Normally, I am not a fan of green polish. But this one has stolen my heart.

Plum Sorbet is an oh-so-amazing bright, deep neon pink. This shade is gorgeous.

Tickled Pink is a bit softer than the others. But this subtle, yet bright baby pink will make a statement. Wear this and others will know that you have a soft side, yet still harbor a bit of attitude.

Traffic Cone will definitely stop people in their tracks. This stunning neon orange will grab attention and let people know that you are a force to be reckoned with.

Yowza Yellow is the perfect shade of yellow. It's filled with the colors of summer. Sunshine, daisies and just plain fun are evident in this bright yellow. It's much brighter that what is shown in the photo.

Salon Perfect Neon POP! Collection - Neon Nail Art

Friday, July 18, 2014


Salon Perfect has been oh-so-busy lately. They have released an amazing collection of neon polishes - Neon POP!

Neon nails are the it mani for summer and Salon Perfect’s new Neon POP collection gives you 12 bright and bold shades that will surely POP. 

I will be swatching these to share with you. But first, I just had to create some nail art with these vivid polishes. Neon polishes just scream for fun nail art.

I think the hardest part of nail art is actually choosing an idea. I scoured the net for ideas and came up with a couple. One of them I like so much I am going to have to recreate it... with a couple of fixes of course.


Let's take a look!

For this look, I took inspiration from Robin Moses. I loved how the neons look next to black. I should have made the flower petals larger to show more of the neon stripes. But I will next time.

I started off with Salon Perfect Sugar Cube. It's a pure white cream and the white makes the neon POP even more. Then I used Salon Perfect Bermuda Baby, Yowza Yellow, Loopy Lime, Fired up Fuchsia, and Traffic Cone to create neon stripes. Then using Salon Perfect Oil Slick. I painted the outline of the flower petals and painted in around the petals. I used a dotting tool to add white and black random dots.

I added a top coat and had an instant, vibrant and dramatic nail art look!
For the second look, I decided to create a softer look. But I still wanted it to have the vibrancy of the neon shades. Once again, I started with a base color of Sugar Cube. Then I used Bermuda Baby, Yowza Yellow, Loopy Lime, Fired up Fuchsia, Plum Sorbet and Traffic Cone to add random shapes, stripes and dots.

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

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. 
 
Salon Perfect He's With Me

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.
