China Glaze ElectroPop Collection Spring 2012 - Swatches and Review


I am so so happy that I got the opportunity to show you this collection. Actually this is exactly what I needed. The weather outside is chilly, it is raining with snow, windy and I am sick. And then comes the postman with a box of these beauties. Now you can imagine how these cheered me up. So here they are, my swatches of the China Glaze spring collection 2012 called ElectroPop...all twelve of them:

FUCHSIA FANATIC
As the name says this is a fuchsia. It is a bright creme and covers in two coats. Very juicy looking.

WICKED STYLE
A coral pink creme. I really like the description of China Glaze on this: "party coctail tropical punch". This was two coats too. 

MAKE SOME NOISE
Make Some Noise is almost a red. It leans between orange, coral and red.

DANCE BABY
Super sweet bubble gum pink. This is just so girly and absolutely perfect for spring. I don´t wear pinks much but I love this one. Two coats.

SWEET HOOK
A light lilac creme but not too light to look white. I love it. It looks so pure and clean. I have some clothes in this colour and I can´t wait for spring to come and me matching it with this polish! 

GOTHIC LOLITA
Yes, yes, yes...another purple and what a beautiful one! Look at the subtle shimmer it has. Thank you China Glaze for making this polish. I am in love with it. Oh I say it too many times with this collection but the polishes are just so pretty. Two coats.

ELECTRIC BEAT
Beautiful periwinkle creme. Perfectness in two coats.

KINETIC CANDY
Light baby blue. Very innocent and spring looking. Another polish I can´t wait to wear. Two coats.

AQUADELIC
This was the first polish I painted my nails with. It was my NOTD today. I don´t have to tell you why, do I? Just look at it. Isn´t it just a perfect turquoise creme? Might be my favourite one now. Two coats.

GAGA FOR GREEN
Bright grass green creme. I don´t like greens much but this is so positive I can imagine wearing it on a sunny spring day. Two coats.

SUNCHINE
Another very positive colour. This bright yellow has shimmer. If you are careful enough you can go with just two coats. If not use a third one to even up the layers. However considering it is a yellow the application was very good. Not too many problems. Two coats.

TECHNO
Techno is the only glitter polish in the collection. It has a clear base with big hexagonal and small round glitter. The glitter is holographic and makes a beautiful effect. To give you an idea I swatched it over four polishes of the collection. It spreads very evenly and is easy to apply. On the picture I used one coat. 

 Wow! Now I don´t even remember the last time I was so much in love with a collection. There is not a single colour I wouldn´t wear or wouldn´t like. The collection as a whole looks fantastic, you can´t be mistaken that it is a spring collection. I think the choice of colours is very nice. What I liked most is the formula on these. They were perfect, easy no apply, not streaky and covered all in two coats. I think I can´t wish for more from a collection. I heard some people say that it is too similar to an older China Glaze Collection Up and Away. I don´t think so, they are different but of course as spring collections they might seem similar. 
Now what are my favourites? It is so hard to choose but if I would have to name a few I must say that Aquadelic, Gothic Lolita, Dance Baby, Kinetic Candy, Techno...oh I could continue. So overall this collection really cheered me up and I like it a lot. I would love to hear your thoughts now...

  8. Thanks for sharing, do you think that Dance Babe is similar to OPI Sparrow me the Drama?

    1. Not very much. The OPI is more muted.

    2. I just today saw a comparison on line of Dance Babe with OPI Pink Friday (which was much softer pink than Dance)...and Sparrow was closer to Dance Baby only Sparrow has a touch of dusty purple to it and also is more muted as our blogger said. I really hope to land Dance Babe - I need a good Barbie Pink that is not a hot pink or a bubble gum pink - I thought OPI's Pink Friday would be it - but it's way too pale for what I was looking for.

  25. Thank you for your perfect swatches, I think I'll get almost all of them ... There are only two shades I don't like (Sunchine and Make Some Noise, 'cause I don't like yellows and orangey shades ;) )

    ReplyDelete
  26. It is not fair, you swatches make me want them all! :)

  27. Fabulous swatches and photos. I was not ready for this collection when it came out - they were too summer looking for the time of yr. I also thought they had been done before - but fact is many have been done similar before, but I did not have any of them except for CG Like Audrey. It's very close to Aquadelic. I am going back now to etailers and trying to get the ones I want. Many Sally's seemed to have either not got many of this collection or they put them on sale and I just totally missed the boat! I am Gaga over the green. I have of them so far - Fuchsia, Techno, Gothic Lolita, & Electric Beat - so I am doing pretty good. Those are shades I really wanted. If I get the green now I will be super happy. Thanks for the amazing photos!
