Salon Perfect - Neon POP Collection - 8 Polish Review

I love neons year round, but summer is the time for neon releases, like the 8 Salon Perfect polishes I have for you today.

Salon Perfect sent out some press release info, so take a quick look then we will get to my pics!

Neon nails are the it manicure look for summer with eye-dazzling digits ruling from the catwalk to the boardwalk. Let your fingertips feel the energy of a high-voltage shade with Neon POP, a new collection of vibrant, neon lacquers from Salon Perfect®. Whether you’re just dabbling in a highlighter bright hue or living the full-on Technicolor dream, these 12 bright and bold neon shades will POP out from the rest.

I was sent 8 shades to review and I have pics for you.

 Most, like neons usually do, need 2 coats of white underneath to fully POP, so I'll let you know which did and which did not. Speaking of white polishes, I highly recommend Salon Perfect's own Sugar Cube, a gorgeous creme white, which I used under most of these neons.

Let's go!

First, this is Plum Sorbet.  This is actually not listed in the description above, LOL, but I received it with this group so here it is!


This polish didn't need white undies and was opaque in 2 coats. Formula was nice and creamy, easy to work with and quick to dry. My only complaint was that the polish dried a lot darker than the bottle color.

Next, this is Fired Up Fuchsia, which has a distinct shimmer. I love all pink polishes so I have zero complaints about this beauty.  Opaque in 2 coats, it didn't require white undies either.

Tickled Pink was the lightest pink I received and it does not disappoint one bit!  Opaque in two coats over white, it was creamy and easy to work with.

Yowza Yellow needs undies, of course, but it dries to a happy highlighter yellow.  I am happy that this photographed yellow and without a green tint, as many yellows do (for me, at least).  This is three thin coats, easy to work with, that dry to a creamy matte finish.

Loopy Lime is an almost metallic looking neon (does that even exist?) that dries matte but still shimmery.  It is easy to work with and opaque in 3 thin coats.  This isn't my fave due to visible brush strokes, but the shade is pretty.  I did use white undies under this color.

After looking at the press release again, I realize Bermuda Baby isn't in this new collection either, but it could be!  This seriously dries matte so grab your topcoat if you're looking for shine.  I did use topcoat here, 2 coats of polish underneath, but no white undies.

Flamingo Flair is a vibrant peach creme. I used 2 coats over white.  This color is phenomenal if you like peaches, there is zero streaking and it is so creamy and easy to work with.  I don't know where the name comes from, but who cares? This is my favorite of the collection!

Traffic Cone, on the other hand, has the perfect name! This is freak-out-the-camera perfectly bright, perfect formula neon orange. I used 2 coats over white. Love this polish!


20140719_093717     20140719_093721

Last but not least, Haute Pink is another favorite.  Also freaking out my camera, this almost looks like a neon red in real life, but does pull pink in these pics.  Perfect in 2 coats over white, I loved this so much I actually did a pedi with it...and I never, ever do bright pedis.  This color screams summer! Love it!

Soo, there you go.  Apparently 6 of the new shades and 2 non-collection neons, but still, all in all, these are 8 great shades.  At the under $4 price point, I recommend scooting over to your nearest Walmart ASAP!

Thanks for stopping by!
