Special Effects Going out of business... Replacement for Atomic Pink?Posted 8 months, 3 weeks ago
Super disappointed after talking with someone from Special Effects this morning... they're closing. That's why Atomic Pink has been so hard to get a hold of for months.
It took me, literally, years to find Atomic Pink. I tried various different shades of pink. None were the right color, all faded really fast. Do you guys have any suggestions for another brand that will get me the ne0n pink and have staying power? I don't do my whole head, so doing it monthly is either a huge pain, or very costly.

i went through this a while back, my suggestions are manic panic hot hot pink or flamingo pink from punky, i also like adore pink rose

I'm looking into combining Arctic Fox Virgin Pink and Electric Paradise combined. It looks like they make a color that's very similar, and Electric Paradise is also UV reactive. :)

I am wondering if anyone has tried One n Only Hot Pink? https://www.sallybeauty.com/dw/image/v2/BCSM_PRD/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-SBS-SallyBeautySupply/default/dwa77764a1/images/large/SBS-342405.png?sw=650&sh=650
I am so sad to lose Atomic Pink. I am curious to try One n Only Hot Pink And Arctic Fox Electric Paradise.
I imagine nothing is a potent and glowing as Atomic Pink. That stuff is the bomb. I still have a little left. I use it heavily diluted for pink highlights and rose gold. I will miss it!

I'm so devastated. I have been using it for years and I haven't found any other colour I've tried lasts as long. I have tried Stargaze UV Pink, Hermman's Peggy Pink, Arctic Fox Virgin Pink, Sparks Magenta Mania, Sparks Red Raspberry, Sparks Pink Kiss, pretty much all the manic panic pinks and I just can't get the same vibrancy or staying power. Really hope to find a replacement.

Also devastated. My friend bought me one of the last bottles of atomic pink to be found. Idk if I'll bring myself to ever open it bc clearly its sacred, but yay. I think that Adore pink rose looks pretty close, or at least based on the swatch. I'll have to go through the trial and error phase too, but I don't expect to get the longevity out of any other brand. Its the sole reason SFX was my brand. I usually go six months or more without needing to touch up.

I’ve never used special effects but I do recommend Sally’s beauty one and only in hot pink and Adore hot pink . The one and only brand will last much longer than adore but both work great

So disappointed. I loved diluting it to get a soft pink that lasted for weeks. (I actually STILL have some in my hair from when I dyed it light pink in JULY!)
Their purples were so good, too.
