Pop Beauty Nail Glam – Grass & Berry

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the Pop Beauty brand from seeing it at Sephora, right? Sadly the makeup isn’t carried at Sephora anymore but did you know the brand makes polish? I know I didn’t. It wasn’t until the beyond fabulous Tamar from Fashion Binge recommended I check them out that I discovered this amazing line.

Nail Glam from Pop Beauty is a range of Big 3 Free (including formaldehyde resin) lacquers that come in a rainbow of vibrant shades including an AH-MAZING fluorescent GREEN!

To quote the Pop Beauty site, “Each Nail Glam shade is non-occlusive so it won’t stain nails and contains nylon creating a strengthening non chip barrier.” Can I just say that with the two shades I tested, the formula WOWED me. It’s smooth, flows easily with a jelly-ish texture yet it’s so so pigmented. After five days on my nails, only a bit of tip wear was showing.

Application tip: Extend your dry time even if using Seche Vite. I found that though the top coat was completely dry, the lacquer underneath was still moving like cellophane wrap on pudding. So tack on a couple minutes and test a nail for movement.

Berry is a vivid rosy hue, it’s a bit darker in person. Kids, this one is so pigmented that I only used one coat. That’s right, one coat!
Grass is… well you know about me and greens so I instantly swooned over this kicky neon green. Though unlike most neons, it didn’t dry uber-matte. I’m showing it without top coat. Crazy, no? Neons are incredibly hard to capture on camera so you can just imagine how much brighter this beauty is to the naked eye.
Pop Beauty makes so many lustworthy shades that I’m already plotting which ones I’ll try next. A few of the polishes on my list include Lilac, Ocean, Mandarin, Orange, Turquoise and Violetta.

Oh and they have new colors coming out for Summer. Check it! Another purple? I’m so on it!
Pop Beauty Nail Glam nail colour ($14) is available on the Pop Beauty website and in stores at the new CVS Beauty 360 locations. Unfortunately there are only two Beauty 360s at the moment but hopefully they’ll be popping up in more states soon.

Has anyone tried Nail Glam before? What did you think?

    I have a CVS Beauty 360 down the street from my job and I met a rep there. I've reviewed grass & o'boy for my site and I like them. They're richly pigmented and apply nicely. I used a China Glaze quick dry top coat and didn't have any issues with it drying at all.

    O god … look at that. I want them! That stinks that they don’t have the nail line @ Ulta … they carry the regular Pop stuff there. :(

    don’t be deceived, the yellow color is actually more of a bright orangey yellow, not really yellow at all. i have it, i love it. i kept walking by the store, and couldn’t resist it.

    I’m officially an addict. I read your post, jumped onto the POP site, and ordered four colors!

    How do they compare to RBL’s “like butta” application?

    Thanks for the lemming [no more]!

    What top coat and base coat did you use with these? 5 days with little tipwear? WOW.

    Your nails are always so beautiful and you always find the best nail polishes. It’s sad that they don’t carry that nail line anymore because those colors are gorgeous.

    I love reading the srticles and stories you write everyday and can’t believe as a guy I love them, nevertheless, I do. Have a nice day and I can’t wait for tomorrow’s column. Peace.

    George :)
