China Glaze Electropop Collection for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review
Welcome to the colorful world of China Glaze Electropop! Electropop is their new 12-piece color saturated collection for spring 2012.
Nearly all the colors in this collection are cremes with the exception of two shimmers and one glitter. But that’s not to say they’re boring.
The formula was really great with nearly all of them. They seemed to apply a bit sheer and I kept thinking I would need three coats, but nearly all were just perfect with two.
Techno over Electric Beat
Techno is a re-promote and is a multi-sized holographic and silver glitter. Because of the large hexagonal glitter pieces it can be trickier to work with because the glitter wants to go to the tip of your nails. This is one coat.
Electric Beat is a perfect periwinkle blue creme. I’m wearing it now! Looooooooove these colors and this one is so perfect for spring (and winter). This was two coats.
Aquadelic is a bright blue/mint green creme. Not neon, but bright. Perhaps not quite as bright as this photo depicts though. This was two coats.
Kinetic Candy is a pale blue creme. This has a lot of white in it and is a nice pastel color, without the chalky pastel finish. This was two coats.
Gaga For Green
Gaga For Green is a bright Kelly green jelly/creme. I love this because it’s not that same slightly darker green creme we have seen a lot of recently. It’s brighter and super shiny. This was two coats.
Sunshine Pop is a bright warm yellow with yellow shimmer. This is bordering on looking terrible on me, but maybe I can pull it off. I did need three coats to get full nail tip coverage with this one.
Make Some Noise
Make Some Noise is a reddish/tangerine jelly/creme. Uber shiny and very nice for spring and summer. It was a little on the sheer side so I needed three coats.
Wicked Style is also a jelly/creme and the color is a bright pinkish/red. Another super shiny one and just two coats.
Fuchsia Fanatic is a bright berry/pink jelly/creme. In real life it looks a bit more purple than this picture. This was two coats.
Gothic Lolita is a GORGEOUS grape purple with pink and blue shimmer. It’s bright, it’s uber shimmery and saturated. Amazing This was two coats and my favorite one.
Dance Baby is a bright cotton candy pink creme. Lots of purple undertones in this one. Super pink, super flattering and fun. This was two coats.
Sweet Hook is a pale, soft lilac creme. Pretty and pastel, but not streaky or chalky. This was two coats.
There wasn’t a color in here I didn’t like. However, I think a lot of these look familiar and maybe aren’t all that unique. My favorites ones are Electric Beat, Aquadelic, Gothic Lolita and Gaga For Green.
Availability: February (officially).
Pricing: Around $6-7.
What do you think about Electropop? Unique enough or do you think it’s too close to other colors already out there?
