Hot Pink Hearts Stamping

Are you ever just super in the mood for a hot pink mani? Yeah, me too! Like all the time! :P This mani features Salon Perfect Fired Up Fuchsia which I preciously received as a press sample for this post. I did do two coats of Salon Perfect Sugar Cube first, and then two coats of Fired Up Fuchsia. I used Konad Special Black Polish to stamp a design from Vivid Lacquer plate VL009.

Salon Perfect Gradient for Tri-Polish Tuesday

It’s Tuesday, but I don’t care because I have the week off. Woo hoo!!!! I grabbed three Salon Perfect polishes that I received in this press sample. I’ve been hankering for a gradient and it’s tri-polish Tuesday, so I picked Loopy Lime, Tickled Pink, and Plum Sorbet! This is my first time doing a gradient with more than two colors. It’s much harder to blend than a two color mani! The final look for this mani kinda reminds me of strawberries!

Watermarble Nail Art – Neon Green!

For this month’s He Picks My Polish challenge, my husband so lovingly picked Salon Perfect Loopy Lime (which I received as a press sample here) and China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener, from the City Flourish Collection. It’s been a while since I did a watermarble and I thought a two-tone marble could look interesting. I like how this turned out, I just wish my camera was better friends with neon polishes!

Black and White Mani for FingerFood Theme Buffet

Today’s mani is for this week’s FingerFood Theme Buffet Prompt! The prompt this time is inspired by fabric or a piece of clothing. I wanted to do a mani that matched this outfit that I got from Stitch Fix.  I posted this outfit on my blog forever ago!

Neon Pop Flower Decals!

The Salon Perfect Neon Pop collection was sent to me as a press sample to play around with – and boy is it fun! You can see all my swatches here. I decided to try my hand (pun not intended) at decals again since my first attempt (here) wasn’t that wonderful. Unfortunately, this one isn’t wonderful either! I keep smearing it. This time, the smears happened when I put on my final top coat. I used KB Shimmer Clearly On Top and I did float the brush, so I don’t know what happened! //shrug

In other news, I recently found out that the vast majority of the original Doctor Who was lost in a fire at BBC. This is heartbreaking! I didn’t know this and know I feel extremely saddened by it! I should probably buy myself some polish to make me feel better, right?

I used a number of the Salon Perfect Neon Pop Collection for this mani: Yowza Yellow, Traffic Cone, Tickled Pink, and Haute Pink. I also used Plum Sorbet with is part of their regular line. The stamping plate was Vivid Lacquer VL 008. This flower design is one of my favorite designs ever. I use it all the time. I don’t usually use the same design over and over again because I don’t want to bore you, dear reader. But in this case, who can ever get bored with flowers! :P

4th of July Nail Art!

It’s not quite time for the 4th of July…but I wanted to give you plenty of time to plan your patriotic manis! I received the Salon Perfect Paint the Town Red, White, and Blue collection. You can see swatches of what I got here. This collection is perfect for the 4th of July. It’s packed with very cool glitter toppers. My favorite is Salon Perfect Star Spangled so of course I wanted to do some nail art featuring this beauty. To do this mani, start with two coats of a white polish. I picked Sally Hansen White On. I then topped it with Seche Vite. After it was dry, I used scotch tape to create a square where I then used Salon Perfect Wild Blue Yonder to paint blue. Another coat of SV. Then, I used my Bundle Monster Plate BM14 to stamp a couple stars on the blue. Finally, I used striping tape (Salon Perfect has some in this new line!) to create the red and white stripes. I used the gorgeous Salon Perfect Paint the Town Red polish for this part. Then, on the remaining three nails, I used Salon Perfect Star Spangled – two coats. I did a little fishing for the stars so I could have at least one of each color on each nail. I hope you like it! :) {The Salon Perfect polishes used in this mani were a press sample}

As you can see, this collection with have you squared away for the Fourth of July. You will not need any other polishes! LOL! This line is perfect!

 

Salon Perfect Wild Blue Yonder is a gorgeous light blue creme. The brush was a little tough to use but I managed to make it work. It self-leveled ok, but it did kind of drip to the corner. I wasn’t doing super thick coats or anything, it just sank a little. I really love this color, though. It’s very rich. I also like how it’s not the classic cobalt you see for 4th of July. It will be very versatile.

  Salon Perfect Fool’s Gold is a glitter topper with small circle glitters and medium hexagon glitters. The application on this was great. I didn’t need to fish or anything.

Salon-Perfect-Fool's-Gold

Salon Perfect Paint the Town Red is one of the stars of this collection. It’s a gorgeous red crelly. I can’t get enough of this. It’s already one of my favorite reds and I’ve only owned it for a day or two! It’s just a great formula. It went on smoothly and looks gorgeous.

Salon Perfect Grand Finale is a glitter topper with silver, blue, and red bar glitters. I didn’t have to fish for glitters, but I did have to adjust them a little at the tips so I didn’t have bars hanging off the edge. But that is typical of any bar glitter. I think this one could be really  fun layered many times over itself. Just a giant patriotic firework on your nail.

Salon-Perfect-Grand-Finale

Salon Perfect Save Me a Spot by far has the best name. Get it? It’s spotted glitters? And the name is Save Me a SPOT? LOL. I literally laughed when I read the name. I love it. I did have to fish quite a bit to get the circles out. If I just pulled the brush out like usual, there was only one or two circles on it. Luckily, they were easy to fish  out.

Salon-Perfect-Save-Me-a-Spot

Salon Perfect Silver Sparkler  is another glitter topper with tiny holo silver glitters and medium hex glitters. This one didn’t need any effort to get a nice level of coverage. I think this one would be perfect over almost any color! It’s simple and pretty!

Salon-Perfect-Silver-Sparkler

Salon Perfect Star Spangled is the STAR of this collection (See? They’re not the only ones that can make puns!!) I looooove this glitter topper, and I’m not a huge fan of glitter as many of you know. I love the holo specs and the star glitters are just so fun and cute. I will be wearing this for 4th of July hands down. (Oh daaaang. There she goes again!)

Salon-Perfect-Star-Spangled

I also wanted to try out the decals. I really liked them at first because they seemed like they were sticky enough to last a while. Unfortunately, when I applied my top coat, things went haywire. The decals started peeling up and bubbling. It is really weird. I’m going to try them again with a different top coat to see if that makes a difference. I used HK Girl this time and it clearly did not get along with these decals.

Do you have a favorite in this collection? What do you think? Will you be picking any of them up at your local drugstore?

Top Coat Showdown – Dry Time

I’m a member of a few different Facebook groups for polish lovers. Frequently, people will ask what the favorite top coats are. There are a few names that always come up: Seche Vite, Out the Door, and HK Girl. Each of these top coats has a cult following. I used to use Seche Vite (pronounced “Sesh Veet”) and switched to HK Girl. I have never tried Out the Door. While I was shopping at Costco this morning, I realized I had never seen a side-by-side comparison of these top coats. I’m sure it exists lots of places, but I decided that readers of Betty’s Beauty Bombs should have this comparison right at their fingertips. So, after Costco, I hurried over to Sally Beauty Supply to get Seche Vite and Out the Door. I already have many, many bottles of HK Girl. I added into the showdown Sally Hansen’s Big Shiny Top Coat because I already owned it and who knows…maybe it’ll beat out the others! :)

Salon Perfect Kaboom over Andrea’s Choice Somersault

My husband was nice enough to buy me Salon Perfect Kaboom–on his birthday no less! This is a glitter that has both yellow and blue tiny dots. It looks green, but there actually isn’t a green glitter in sight! I put two layers of Kaboom over two layers of Andrea’s Choice Somersault which is a neon yellow.
