Salon Perfect Neon POP Skittles Mani

Hi, you guys! :)

One of the quandaries I have with neon colors is deciding which color to wear when I love them all so much. If only I had more hands... But since I don't, and I want my cake and eat it too, wearing them in a skittles mani is the perfect fun solution. The Salon Perfect Neon POP Collection contains 12 bold shades, and I combined four of my favorites for the mani below.

Left to right: Tickled Pink, Loopy Lime, Traffic Cone, Fired Up Fuchsia



Tickled Pink (index finger) is a neon barbie pink with a creme finish. The formula is a little on the runny side, though nothing too bad. It's also a little streaky, but is mostly even by three coats.

Loopy Lime (middle finger) is a neon lime green with shimmers. This color is stunning, so bold and vibrant on the nails. It's easy to apply, and isn't too streaky by neon polish standard. It's opaque at two coats though I did three for the swatches.

Traffic Cone (ring finger) is an aptly named neon show-stopping orange with a creme finish. This is the brightest orange I've ever put on my nails, and I love it! I used three coats for the swatches.

Fired Up Fuchsia (pinky) is a bright magenta pink with fine shimmers. It's another really stunning color from the collection. The formula's pretty good and easy to apply. I used three coats for the swatches.

I tried a few of the other colors from this collection too, and all of them are super bright. Though there is a white base that you can use with the colors, the intensity and brightness of the shades shines through even without it, so it's not really necessary. The formulas can be a little streaky, pretty on par with neons. In general, the cremes are more uneven, while the shimmers apply more evenly and easily across the nails.

What do you think of this collection and of neons in general? Will you be picking any up to add to your collection? And do you wear neons only in the summer or all year-round?

You can find the Neon POP shades exclusively at Walmart stores for a retail price of $3.98 for each 0.5 fl oz bottle.

  2. I don't know what happened but this summer I love neons and believe me, I didn't like them before. The colours you used are well photographed, it's sometimes hard to take a proper foto of a neon. The index, middle and pinkie are my picks.

    1. I think neons just grow on you until one day, you realize all you want to wear is neons. ;) Yep I have trouble photographing neons too. It was a little easier to capture a skittles mani... maybe the different colors help the camera balance between them.

    1. The orange is intense! Most neon oranges mellow out next to my skin tone, but this one stayed nice and loud. :)

  14. I really like Fired Up Fuchsia! I love neons but they usually are a bit difficult to apply :( I do wear neons in the fall/winter sometimes but only as an accent color... Accent nail or maybe for part of a nail in a tape mani. It's too bright for fall/winter otherwise I think
