Salon Perfect Blooming with Color Collection (Part 3) | Swatches, Photos, and Review

Berry Blue is a true periwinkle. This is opaque in just two coats, not too streaky. Close to Electric Beat, I believe.

Berry Pink is a fuchsia with light and dark pink shimmer. It’s really something. Opaque in two coats, easy formula.

Bubblegum is a stunning (shockingly) gorgeous sweet pink with loads of shimmer. Completely opaque in 3 coats, and beautiful. Not as frosty looking as it does in the picture. I didn’t think I’d like this… I absolutely hate pink! Yet I love it.

Lavender Icing is described as a soft lilac, and I agree with that. This made my camera freak out, but it’s a super soft and friendly-looking lilac.

Plum Sorbet is described as a magenta with purple shimmer. This is exactly right, and there’s also some copper-ish and blue flash to it as well. Opaque in two coats. A lot of people will love this color, and if you’re one of them, pick this up. I don’t love this color, as I’ve made apparent, but that’s my opinion. And thats what all this is about, right? Right. Continuing.

Purple Sorbet is described as a dark lilac. While I don’t really think of this when someone says lilac, it’s a gorgeous soft floral-looking color. I really liked this one.

Here is  Part 1 and Part 2.

Blue Mint is a bright clean blue mint. In the bottle it looks very close to China Glaze’s For Audrey, but it dries on the nail a bit darker.

Blue Raspberry is a deep cerulean blue, which is extremely close to China Glaze’s Shower Together. The formula was nice, it was a little sheer at two coats, as you can see on my ring finger, but three coats bring is to almost completely opaque. Really nice.

Key Lime is a… key lime color. It’s described as a “vibrant green,” but that’s not the best description. It’s a dusty lime pastel. It’s a bit streaky, but I think if I had just one more coat it would’ve evened out nicely.

Sour Apples is described as a “true blue-green,” and I completely agree with that. The formula on this one was perfect. This is two coats. Excellent color. Extremely close to China Glaze Four Leaf Clover.

These are limited edition, and are only available this month! I’d recommend Key Lime and Sour Apples, they’re just so fresh. These cost $2.98 each, so any of the others are definitely worth it if you don’t already have something like them.

Salon Perfect Blossoming with Color Collection (Part 1) | Swatches, Photos, and Review

Hi there! Just finished up the last of my homework, most of my grades are in (and passing!), and now it’s time to get caught up with the nail world! A couple weeks ago I received all but one of the latest Salon Perfect collection, and I did a marathon swatching session in hopes that I could get it up well ahead of time. This is a limited edition collection, so find the ones you like and go get them now! I split this up into three parts, so stay tuned!

Lemon Zing is a sunshine yellow, it’s a true yellow, it doesn’t lean too warm or cool. It’s bright, and looks good on my skin tone, which is rare for a yellow with me. The formula on this was a little thick and super streaky but not any more worse than other yellows.

Perfectly Peach is a beautiful, springtime fresh peach color. It’s super spring and super mod. Absolutely gorgeous. This is definitely my favorite of this collection. Seems very close to China Glaze’s Peachy Keen, maybe a touch darker. It was the least streaky of the pastels.

Spicy Tomato is a red jelly. It’s a basic red jelly. Nice formula, this was three coats. Still a bit sheer, but that’s a jelly for you. I’d compare it to Zoya Kristi or a sheer version of China Glaze Hey Sailor.

Tangy Tangerine is a red leaning orange jelly. Less sheer than the red and very very shiny. This is not as close to the red to the eye as it is on camera, but it’s similar. This color and the red are easily dupable for many many other polishes.

These are limited edition, and are only available this month! Of these four, I’d definitely recommend Perfectly Peach. These cost $2.98 each, so any of the others are definitely worth it if you don’t already have something like them.

Here’s Part 2 and Part 3.
