China Glaze Electropop: Part 1

Good morning, ladies!  This is officially day 2 of my review week, and I wanted to get ElectroPop posted.... FINALLY!  I have had them forever, and I redid them several times.  I finally got enough sunlight to do all of these outside, and I am very satisfied.  Except with two.  But I'll get to that later.  On with it!  


ElectroPop is the spring offering from China Glaze.  As usual, there are plenty of gorgeous pastels in this collection, but this year they added brights as well!  If China Glaze does one thing well, it's spring collections.  We'll start off with Kinetic Candy.


Kinetic Candy
Kinetic Candy is an almost dusty baby blue.  The formula on this one was a tad thick, but that's almost a nice change from the streaky formulas pastels usually have.  A couple of drops of thinner and this will be perfect!  It took two coats to cover completely.


Electric Beat
Electric Beat is a gorgeous periwinkle-type blue.  There isn't quite enough purple in it to go that far, though.  I don't think anyway.  There is just enough of that tone in there to make me like it though!  (I only like unique or super dark blues usually).  It dries a tad darker than in the bottle, as you can see in the picture.  This was two smooth coats! 

Sunshine Pop 
I didn't want this polish.  I saw the promo and hated it!  So I was actually pretty happy that it was one of my review polishes so I wouldn't buy and hate it.  Well, I am very very happy they sent it to me!  HOLY SHIMMER!  This is a "taxi" yellow with a yellow shimmer throughout.  It just POPS.  There's no way you can't like this after you see it on!  This was the only polish I used three coats for.

Gaga for Green
GfG is a "squishy" grass green cream.  I would call it a jelly, but it definitely has jelly qualities.  It's a pretty color, but I don't think I'll be wearing it very often.  This is two coats, as well. 


Gothic Lolita 
This baby is so much more than she seems!  I would like to direct your attention to the first photo.  On the first nail you can see a shimmer that is very hard to capture.  On the other two nails, you can see the colors that make up that shimmer!  So, we have a medium toned purple with a blue/pink shimmer.  It is truly unique!  Two coats. 

Wicked Style
Finally, we have Wicked Style.  I'll tell you right now, this is not color accurate.  It was VERY hard to photograph!  In fact, I split the bright pinks into two posts because they almost look the same *grumbles*.  The shade is actually very bright, but is more orange toned.  Yes, I said orange.  It might be a coral, but the pinkest coral you can get without actually calling it pink.  If that makes sense!  It IS accurate in the group bottle shot.  It is the fifth polish on the right side.  This was two coats and I LOVE it! 

While this was not my favorite part of the collection, I still actually really like it!  The only one I'm not sure about is Gaga for Green.  I would definitely check out Gothic Lolita irl.  I haven't seen a picture yet that is accurate!  

Overall, these polishes have an amazing formula that I have come to expect from China Glaze.  They were much smoother than collections of this type tend to be and I really enjoyed putting them on.  It made my job a lot easier! 

China Glaze can be bought at various supply stores and etailers, with price depending on what kind of shop you get them in, and what state you are in.  (That actually annoys the crap out of me! lol)  

What do you guys think of these?  Like, love, hate?  Let me know!  I'll post the other half tonight!
