Happy Tuesday… missed a few days while I was sick and then swatching away like a mad-woman! So many amazing polishes have been coming out lately that I just can’t seem to stop myself!
Today I have the remaining nine (9) polishes from the China Glaze Electric Nights collection to share. These are all creme finishes and other than two, can be opaque in just two to three coats.
First up, I am going to show the two polishes that I think could benefit from a white base. I swatched them both ways to show the difference, the ring finger is over Alpine Snow by OPI and the other fingers are three finessed coats on their own.
Daisy Know My Name? is a bright sunshine yellow creme that is super bright without being too eye-searing. In three coats, I can still see the nail line but one coat over white, it was brighter and fully opaque.
Home Sweet House Music is a bright tangerine orange creme. Another not overly eye-searing bright polish but one that I think is a more everyday summer orange. Again, the nail line is slightly visible in three coats but one coat over white is brighter and more opaque.
The remaining polishes are all opaque on their own and didn’t require a white base to make them brighter.
Treble Maker is a bright mid-tone green with a cool undertone. This one needed three coats to be fully opaque but is such a flattering shade of green that it would look amazing on all skin tones.
UV Meant To Be is a bright sky blue creme. This one only needed two coats to be fully opaque and is the perfect spring/summer blue.
DJ Blue My Mind is very similar to the UV Meant To Be but perhaps a little brighter while also being a little darker… does that even make sense? I did need to use three coats, with a little finessing, to get this to be opaque and while I don’t think a white base is necessary, it could help to make the application a little easier.
Glow With the Flow is that perfect bright Barbie pink creme. This polish is very cool toned and opaque in just two easy to apply coats… I love this one!
Red-Y To Rave is an eye-searing red-toned coral. The picture does nothing for the brightness and craziness that this polish brings to the nails… it is amazing! It did need three coats to be fully opaque but for such a bright colour, it can be fully forgiven.
Plur-ple is a cool-toned purple creme. This is the first of two purple in the collection and I find it to be less bright which makes it the perfect all season polish.
Finally, Violet Vibes is a warm-toned purple creme that is must brighter and must more summery than the other purple in the collection. This polish also needed three coats but again, the bright factor and amazing colour mean that it’s forgiven.
Overall, I LOOOOOOOVE this collection so much. It is the perfect hit of polish for summer and I think that it’s worth picking them all up. My favourites from the collection, you know, for those not willing to grab em all, are Violet Vibes and Red-Y to Rave. AMAZING!!
