SALON PERFECT In Bloom Duo 1 : Swatches, Review and Nail Art

Hi, my darlings! Since I went on a little bit of a creative spree of sorts this weekend, I want to show you ANOTHER nail art look I created using one of Salon Perfect's In Bloom duo-packs, this time with Duo 1 which contains two shades of gray. But before we get to the nail art, let's take a look at swatches of just the polishes themselves!

Carbon Copy is a dark, charcoal gray creme. The swatches below show just ONE coat but while it's fully opaque at one coat, I think it would look better at at least two coats because one coat tended to accentuate every tiny little flaw in my nail bed!

Haze is a silvery, dove-gray creme. Great application and formula--the swatches below show 2 smooth coats by itself. I LOVE this shade of gray!

Ok, now on to the nail art, which I'm inordinately proud of! =) For this look, I used Salon Perfect's Haze and Haute Pink (swatches of which I will show you soon) as well as black, white and silver stripers from their striper trio set. And of course, a handy little dotting tool!

After applying two coats of Haze and allowing it to dry COMPLETELY, I created the branches first--just whimsical swipes with the black striper, then smaller shapes approximating little leaves. Then using the white striper, I just dabbed on spots to make the base of my cherry blossoms, Using a dotting tool, I added some smaller dots of Haute Pink to the center of my white cherry blossoms, to give them a pop of color. Finally, I accented the branches with thin stripes of silver and topped it with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl to finish the look. And there you have it! Simple but oh-so-pretty cherry blossoms!

So there you have it, my darlings! Stay tuned because I will have at least a couple more nail art looks to show you shortly! The Salon Perfect Bloom in Color collection launched on May 1st at select Walmart stores nationwide as part of a limited edition promotional display. The 2-packs of polish, 3-packs of nail art liners, and Nail Art Kits will each retail for $4.98--what a great deal!
