China Glaze Electropop Nail Polish Swatches & Review

Today I have a whole load of pictures to show you from the latest China Glaze nail polish collection called Electropop. When I'd first seen pictures online, I didn't think I'd purchase many of these because they looked so neon. In real life, I fell in love because they're bright and happy colors; wonderful for spring and summer, especially. I love the retro styling of the graphics that go with this collection. I love any cosmetic retro look advertising so this really appealed to me.

First, I picked up a set of mini bottles, which look like this:

The colors, from left to right, are: Electric Heat and Dance Baby

Fucshia Fanatic and Gothic Lolita.

I love all fucshia colors and anything in a shimmering purple, so I really wanted those. Anything in a baby pink and a medium baby blue gets two thumbs up from me as well. And retro packaging that was too cute to pass up. Each of the "minis" holds 9.6 ml of product while the full sizes hold 14, so a mini is easily over half the size of a full bottle.

After securing the mini foursome, I turned to the full sized lacquers to see what I wanted and chose the following colors:

The colors, from left to right are:

Make Some Noise

Kinetic Candy

Sweet Hook

And last but surely not least, Techno, a 3D glitter with all kinds of pop.

I skipped over the yellow and green that were displayed with the collection. The yellow reminded me of Chanel Mimosa which was an utter failure on me, although I'm sure the consistancy of the China Glaze is better, but ok I just don't like yellow. :) I also skipped the green as I was wearing Dior Waterlily when I found these and put Techno over the top and LOVED it.

I have tried Techno over everyone of these nail polishes and find them each an electropop of color! I love how it looks on every one of them. It's better in person than in picture as the flash and macro settings tend to pick up individual particles rather than the whole flash of Techno. But here's some examples of what they look like:

I find that there's literally something for everyone in this collection. I apologize for not showing you the whole collection, but I promised my husband I'd cut back so I didn't buy it all. :D What about you? Do you love the retro packaging? Which color are you looking most forward to? If I was grading this collection, I'd give it an A++.

    1. I found them when I was on a trip to another state in a beauty supply shop. I'm not sure if they've hit Sally's yet cuz I haven't been there in awhile.

    1. I'm lucky I found these out of state cuz our Sally's here is always way behind in distribution. I love Techno so much! It's so holo-y and 3Dish in real life; I think it makes everything pop.
