Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - Salon Perfect Neon Collision Collection

**all items purchased by me

Time for a new Spotted, Hauled & Swatched post.  This time it's featuring the Salon Perfect Neon Collision collection, which just recently came out at Walmart.  Even though I live within 10 minutes of 3 different Walmarts, I only saw this collection at one and by the time I saw it, it was really picked over (you'll see in just a sec.) so I snatched up as quickly as I could one of each.  It took me a while, but I managed to find all 6 polishes on this 3-sided display (one long side and 2 skinny sides).  I'm glad that I decided to bite the bullet and purchase all 6 at one time since I still haven't seen this at any other location.

So let's see what was left of the display:
The store was busy enough, I could only get this one picture - you can see how much it's been picked over. Besides the neon glitters, there was plain neons that I believe would coordinate with the glitters as well as white (maybe a topcoat too).

Haul time!
 Kaboom, Shocked, Zapped, Jolt, Bang, Exploded
Kaboom, Shocked and Zapped
~Zapped is essentially the inverse of Kaboom~
 Jolt, Bang, Exploded
~Jolt and Exploded are also the opposite of each other (according to my eye)~
~Bang looks to be approximately equal parts of each color~

Swatch time!  These are all done with roughly 2 coats (no base):
Kaboom, Shocked, Zapped, Jolt, Bang and Exploded
 ~The bottles are most color-accurate in this picture~

Kaboom is rumored to be the dupe of the "indie" glitter named Floam so let's just stick this in the category of "my version of".  I would say that out of these 6, I have an early favorite - Shocked.  It's primarily bubblegum pink with a good amount of blue glitter mixed in (all matte).  On my nail wheel, these do dry to a textured finish.  I let each one dry for a minute or so between each coat, also making sure to have plenty of polish on the brush each time, in order to get a better application since they are very glitter dense.

Have you seen this collection at Walmart?  Do you plan on getting any?  What colors would you pair them with?  Did you know/realize that Salon Perfect and China Glaze are from the same company (just different formulas)?!
