Hi guys! Today I have a few polishes from the Top Of The Class Collection from Salon Perfect to share with you! The entire collection is pretty large and is split up into 3 parts- 60's, 70's & 80's. I have a couple glitters from each of the different decades in this post! Check out all the swatches after the jump!
Disco Ballin' is bright blue and silver glitter in a clear base. You could probably wear this on its own if you really wanted to but I prefer it layered. The formula was good, it wasn't thick and the glitter payoff was great. I used 1 coat over China Glaze Intelligence, Integrity & Courage for the photos below.
Disco Diva is purple holographic bar glitter in a clear base. I felt like the piece of glitter were a bit too long in this polish, it made application difficult and they kept wanting to stick up off the nail. I used 1 dabbed coat over Lauren B Beauty Malibu Beach for the photos below.
Flower Power is light pink, light blue and yellow glitter in a clear base. I love the fun mix of colors in this...plus circle glitter! The formula wasn't my favorite, it was very base heavy and the glitter was pretty sink-y. Even after putting the bottle upside down for over 10 minutes it was hard to get the glitter out. I had to dab this one on which also wasn't easy. Unfortunately this also bubbled on me, most likely because of how I had to apply it. I used 2 dabbed coats over Zoya Spencer for the photos below.
Foxy Lady is neon pink glitter and silver glitter in a clear base. This is another you could probably wear on its own if you wanted to! The formula was good, it wasn't thick and application was easy. The glitter payoff was also great, I used 1 coat over China Glaze New Birth for the photos below.
Mad About Mod is light and dark pink, white and yellow glitter in a clear base. I love the mix of glitter and colors in this one but it had all the same formula issues as Flower Power. I layered Mad About Mod over China Glaze Five Rules for the photos below.
Ruby's Cubes is a mix of yellow, red, white, blue, green and orange square glitter in a clear base. This one is super fun...I love how striking the colors of glitter are! The formula was ok, it was nice and glitter dense but its best to apply dabbed. Luckily this one was much easier to work with so I didn't have any issues with bubbling. I used 1 dabbed coat over Zoya Marnie for the photos below.
Spot On is black and white circle glitter in a clear base. For some reason I feel like this is a black and white glitter I haven't seen before, maybe its because its only circle glitter? I'm sure an indie has already done this but I guess I just don't own it. The formula was troublesome, very base heavy with very sink-y glitter. I did get some bubbling with this but not as badly as I had with previous polishes. I used Spot On over China Glaze Givers Theme for the photos below.
Square Pegs is pink and blue circle glitter along with yellow square glitter in a clear base. Again a nice glitter combo but it had bad formula issues like most of the other polishes I got to review. I used Square Pegs over China Glaze Friends Forever, Right? for the photos below.
Overall these are a miss for me, I think all the glitter combos are fun but the formula for most was so difficult to use that its not worth the trouble. I have had people suggest in past posts to use glitters like these by putting them onto a makeup sponge then applying them like how you would do a gradient, that way the sponge sucks up all the base. I haven't personally tried that (I prefer reviewing polishes how they are meant to be used by the brand) but if you really like these and are having issues with application I would suggest giving that a try.
