China Glaze ElectroPop Swatches
Hola! Here are swatches for China Glaze’s Spring offering, ElectroPop. 12 beautiful shades that will work for Spring into Summer. I love collections like these cause you can wear them not just for one season. These are shown in the order of the press release.
First up is Kinetic Candy.
Kinetic Candy is described as a “touch the sky in light blue crème” and it’s spot on. It is one of my favorite shades from this entire collection. Formula is good and it dried at a decent amount of time. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next up is Electric Beat.
Electric Beat is a periwinkle creme shade that reminds me of China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le from their Operation Color Collection released a few years back. Formula is good. It applied onto my nails easily. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next is a popular one called Aquadelic.
Aquadelic is described as “pool blue for nighttime gigs and daytime fun in the sun”. This bright number is a pleasant addition to my collection. I love the formula for this and what a shiny finish it has even when it’s close to being neon bright! Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Then we have Gaga For Green.
Gaga For Green is described as a “green lacquer for the girl craving the limelight”. I like greens, but this one isn’t making it on my love list. While formula is nice for this green creme, I don’t see this having a place in my collection. I initially thought it would be brighter than what it actually is. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next is a bright one called Sunshine Pop.
Sunshine Pop is a bright yellow shimmer. I didn’t think this was a shimmer based on the initial shots, so this is a pleasant surprise. I love shimmers and this is no exception. Formula is great and it glided onto my nails smoothly. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next up is Make Some Noise.
Make Some Noise is described as a tangerine by the brand. It looks more like a red creme that’s leaning orange especially under sunlight. I found the formula of this shade to be a little on the gloopy side. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next is a shade I was curious about called Wicked Style.
Described as a “party cocktail tropical punch”, it looked much brighter from the initial shots released. This pretty pink creme applied smoothly onto my nails. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Here’s another favorite of mine called Fuchsia Fanatic.
Described as a “fuchsia pink for the rocker diva in us all”, this shade is my favorite creme in this collection. I love how bright and bold this shade is. Formula is excellent. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next up is Gothic Lolita.
Gothic Lolita is a pretty purple shimmer. I didn’t realize this is a shimmer until I had the bottle in my hands. Formula is good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next is a shade called Dance Baby.
Dance Baby is described as a “cotton candy pink” shade and I think it’s pretty accurate. It’s a light pink creme with a decent formula. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Last non-glitter shade in the collection is Sweet Hook.
Dance Baby is described as a “dreamy lilac”. This shade is a very light lilac creme, too light for my taste. But that’s just me. Just like Make Some Noise, the formula for this is kind of gloopy. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Last shade up is a familar one called Techno.
Techno is a shade that was released originally with their Specialty Collection. It was a collection of 50 shades (I got most of the glitters) released in 2009 I think. This is described as “glitter confetti polish for a dazzling topcoat finish or all over finger tip bling”. Shown is 1 coat with no top coat.
Overall, pretty good. I like the formula on most of them and my initial disappointment of an all creme collection, with the exception of Techno, is short-lived. Gothic Lolita and Sunshine Pop being shimmers totally surprised me and I ended up liking them a lot. The only thing I didn’t like as much was there’s too many red/pink/purple cremes, but I can live with that. Fuchsia Fanatic and Aquadelic are totally must-haves in my book.
These are available at ULTA and Sally Beauty Supply stores. Word around is that they’re selling out fast. I didn’t see any left at my ULTA, but check your store or call your Sally Beauty Supply stores for availability.
