I received 4 Salon Perfect polish duos recently and tonight I am showing you the 4th set (there are more available at Walmart though!)
I have the Salon Perfect Lacquer Basics Duo to show you which is simply a black and white creme (really the 2 shades every nail enthusiast has in their arsenal!) Plus, I decided to see how well they water marble, even if my marbling skill isn’t 100% up to par.
Oil Slick is a glossy black creme. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Sugar Cube is a crisp, pure white creme. I used 2 coats for these photos. The first coat did look a bit streaky, but the second coat evened it all out.
And A Little Nail Art
It’s late so I didn’t have time to do a full water marble manicure, so I did the accent nail, painted the other nails with Oil Slick and added a pretty crystal so they didn’t look as plain! I used Sugar Cube as a white base on my ring finger and then used both Sugar Cube and Oil Slick to do a water marble. (sorry about cleanup… it’s getting late and I’m going between nail art and getting my sons stuff together for school tomorrow!)
If you are looking for a good black and white polish for basics… Salon Perfect has you covered at a good price. I had no application issues, and both polishes were perfect at 2 coats.
Price: $4.98 for the Duo (yes, for BOTH of these shades!)
Where To Buy: Walmart
I’ve now shown you all the duos I have (for now!) and coming soon I’ll have some fun nail art kits from Salon Perfect to show you!
Everyone needs a good black and white for nail art, and stamping! These look super glossy and pigmented. Love the watermarble – that’s something I never have succeeded with, and it’s just too messy for me to keep practicing! I commend you, and bow to your greatness for doing one – especially whilst getting your son ready for school!
I love that watermarble!!! I have yet to have a really good watermarble. I think I might try the plastic baggie trick soon haha
Your watermarble is so pretty! ONE day I will get a pretty one!
I love the watermarble! I haven’t tried it yet… I’m afraid of the clean up lol
I use OPI Peel off Base around my fingers and cuticles, let it dry and then marble! After I can just peel the base off my skin and then very minimal cleanup!
That nail art is crazy and I love the basic colors themselves too.
OMG I need that black ASAP, it looks so much better than any other black I have seen. And wow that white is gorgeous. Beautiful swatches as usual. Love love love!!!
I’m afraid to admit I don’t have a black in my arsenal! I loved the creamy look of these two shades. The water marble accent nail was gorgeous! I would love to learn how to do it!
Great swatches! I love the water marble accent!!!!!
I love Oil Slick! Also, your swirl is out of this world!
These look great! The white isn’t streaky, which is usually an issue with white polishes.
Great swatches and I love the watermarbling you did!
Wow, Sugar Cube looks like an AWESOME white even if it takes 2 coats (which is half as much as some take lol). Love your watermarble accent nails always!
I love that water marble!
I would love to have that marble look on a scarf too!
Your accent nail is to die for. That’s what they should look like!
The marbling is beautiful!!
the simplicity of black and white is just beautiful! Love
Elegant mani as per usual. I did water marble one time, it was a disaster… poor lil me, hahaha
A good black & white nail polish are staples!
Those are great staples to have in every collection.
I might have to run over to Walmart – Sugar Cube looks like the perfect white!
Loving Sugar Cube!
I really want to learn how to water marble – this design is gorgeous and I love your swatches :)
It’s pretty much the only type of nail art I can do without screwing up.
Although they are such basics shades they are very pretty !
I’m obsessed with white nails, I just love them. That marble is incredible. I wish I could do it.
What a great deal for those polishes
