Their press release states:
" The 4th of July is just around the corner and whether you were Born in the U.S.A., or are here to Party in the U.S.A., everyone from sea to shining sea will be looking to celebrate with the hottest nail art around. Introducing the Paint the Town Red White & Blue collection from Salon Perfect! Available now at select Walmart stores nationwide, this collection of nail lacquers, liners, pens, decals, tapes and tools allows you to express your patriotism in style."
I also received a striper brush, dotting tool, decals, and striping tape, but I am going to do another post on that.
By the way, the striping tape and other accessories are all under $2, a much better price point than some other stores, who shall remain nameless!
First up, this is Paint The Town Red, a pretty red jelly-ish polish. Not quite a sheer jelly and not quite a cream, this falls between the jelly/crelly line. I used two coats here, plus topcoat. I love how cherry red it is! Be careful with application as reds tend to be a little messy!
Next, this perfect white, Sugar Cube, has officially hit holy grain status in my collection. I even posted it on my Facebook page before any other swatches - it's That Good! This is two creamy, streak-free coats with topcoat. Goes on smooth and perfect. LOVE!
Gold Leaf is another home-run. You hardly see metallics here because I.Hate.Brushstrokes!! Luckily, there are none to be found with this polish. Goes on smooth, dries well, looks streak-free. I know I'll pick this up again and again!
Now, the fun glitters!
I was happy to see a gold topper amongst the red, white, and blue glitters. Before I decided what I wanted to do, I swatched each over the red, Paint The Town Red:
- Index finger has Grand Finale,
- middle finger has Save Me a Spot,
- ring finger has Boom, Boom, Boom,
- and pinky finger has Fool's Gold.
This is Fool's Gold over Gold Leaf. Fool's Gold is easy to use, no fishing required, and a great glitter to base ratio:
Next, I swatched the others over white. Boom, Boom, Boom over Sugar Cube is a really fun topper, full of patriotic micro-glitters. This is two coats with easy breezy application.
I added Save Me a Spot over the Boom, Boom, Boom/Sugar Cube combo. I love the circle glitter idea, but there is a lot of clear base in the bottle. Seems like a "duh" statement but there's a lot more base than glitter, making this kind of hard to use. I did some fishing and placing with this and I do like the final results. Make sure you're patient with this one!
Grand Finale is a bar glitter extravaganza! Bar glitter isn't my favorite but with the stars and stripes theme of this time of year, it fits in really well. Application was very easy, no fishing or placing required. This is shown over Paint The Town Red:
I really enjoyed this collection! My favorite, which might be a surprise, is Sugar Cube! You can find Salon Perfect at Wal-marts nationwide. Price points are reasonable and formulas are great!
