I know, I know. I'm a little behind. But I didn't come by these when they were first released, and then life went crazy, and well, there's not much else to say - but this China Glaze Electric Nights Collection is the bomb for summer shades! There's still some time left to grab these.
I've taken a lot of pictures of this collection. You'll notice four photos for each color - sunlight, shade, indoors with natural light and indoors with flash (in that order, as if you are reading a book). I've done this for several reasons. I want to provide a wide variety of lighting options for you to see how the polish looks. The exception is the glitter toppers - I only used direct sunlight and flash for those.
I'll preface all the swatches here with the distinction that they all lean or are neon. Various lighting arrangements show the colors differently. It's very important to note that neons don't always play well with cameras or lighting. They can be contrary.
Red-y To Rave is not really a red to me. It definitely leans orange! This color is just so pretty, I don't care what it's called :) hahah I didn't have any trouble with application, and I do plan on wearing this over and over and over. Two coats.
Home Sweet House Music had a little issue with application, but not a huge one. It just went on a little thick, and it took 3 coats for what's pictured. The color is bright enough for summer, but muted enough for nail art in the fall!
UV Meant To Be is flawless in 1 coat! Yep, I only needed 1 coat for what's pictured. It flowed on the nail, seriously, just like butter. I really didn't have to do anything with this gorgeous sky blue polish. It makes itself pretty. Amazing!
Point Me To The Party is a fun glitter topper! It's got pink, blue, green, orange, purple...? There's just a lot of matte glitter thrown in here! The base is a little thick, but the glitter payoff in the end is good, so it evens out. I wanted to show this look mattified, too, so I've got two regular and two matte photos here!
Violet-Vibes is one that I wasn't too excited about. It just didn't "jive" with me, and it was a little on the thin side, and needed 3 coats for what's pictured. It kind of felt like a jelly, but it never really "set up" right, I don't think. The tips of my nails look different than the base by the cuticle. That could be operator error, and maybe if I try it again, the result would be different.
DJ Blue My Mind is a deeper blue than UV Meant To Be, but it's still just as pretty! It did take 2 coats, but that doesn't take away from this beauty. I wore this one for several days because I loved it so much. Formula is good, no application issues at all.
Treble Maker is pretty much a flawless minty green neon. It took 2 coats for what's pictured. No issues in formula. No streaking or dragging. I used it for a base for one of the glitters and wore it for a while :)
Let The Beat Drop is a mix of pink and orange glitter - sometimes one of the pinks throws a purple vibe. Same as previous glitter, this one has a thick base, but a good dose of glitter. I also showed this one mattified hehe
Plur-ple needed 3 coats to build up, but then it kind of just felt... boring? I dunno. Maybe because it's not as bright, or as flashy as the rest of this collection. It is gorgeous in its own right - a very beautiful purple. It starts out a little thin, but as I mentioned, 3 coats is quite nicely :)
Daisy Know My Name was a bit sheer and streaky going on, which is typical for a yellow. It's really bright, but I don't think I'd actually classify it as a full neon. I used 4 thin coats for what's pictured.
Glow With The Flow is a bright pink creme. I'm not much for the color, but the polish has a good formula, a little streaky on the first coat, but it totally evened out on me by the second coat. With thin coats, this could go as much as 3 coats.
Can I Get An Untz Untz is another glitter topper, this one with blue, purple and green glitter. Gotta echo the other two glitter toppers: thicker base but great payoff glitter-wise. Hadta go with the mattified look here too!
