China Glaze Electropop – Electric Beat Nail Polish Review
I’m not sure why but initially I didn’t take much interest in the Electropop collection. Since its release a few months ago, more and mores watches and photos of the polishes popped up on blogs, and browsing through the photos, there was one shade that I kept checking and looking at—Electric Beat!
Where heavy metal meets rocker chic, China Glaze introduces the Spring 2012 collection, ElectroPop. Inspired by all things girly, edgy and fun, the 12 shades of ElectroPop bring out the inner rock star in all. For flash and glam this spring, China Glaze hits the stage in style!
Electric Beat – Periwinkle nails for a wink worthy performance
Electric Beat is a creme periwinkle blue with a shiny finish. There’s a dustiness to the color that for me keeps it from being a typical periwinkle shade. I first encountered the word ‘dusty’ to describe certain nail polish colors in some of my favorite nail blogs, and it’s such an accurate word, especially in this case. It’s such a pretty, serene color. The photo above, of the swatch of Electric Beat on a nail wheel, is accurate.
I had anticipated that this shade might make my hands look darker, but surprisingly, it doesn’t. Electric Beat isn’t too light for my skin tone, it works just fine. I like the shiny finish of it too.
The formula of it is okay, when I tried it for the first time, right after I ordered it, it was pretty smooth and applied quite easily, but using it again after some weeks after, the formula seemed to have gotten a bit thicker. I apply either a single thick coat or a thin coat first then a thicker second coat, since that gives me lesser clumping and streaks, but I do get some bubbles.
Electric Beat has a relatively short drying time, which I find pretty convenient, and a smallish brush. It is big 3 free. I ordered it for PhP 350 from Digital Traincase. Other shades in the Electropop collection are: Kinetic Candy, Aquadelic, Gaga for Green, Sunshine Pop, Make Some Noise, Wicked Style, Fuchsia Fanatic, Gothic Lolita, Dance Baby, Sweet Hook, and Techno.
China Glaze Electropop – Electric Beat Nail Polish -What I like about it:
- The pretty, peaceful color of it. It’s cool and interesting.
- Application’s okay.
- Dries relatively quickly.
- It’s big 3 free.
China Glaze Electropop – Electric Beat Nail Polish -What I don’t like about it:
- The texture became thickish after some weeks. I feel the need to apply a little thinner to it.
- Has to be ordered online.
I like this color a lot and I’ll definitely wear it a lot this summer, and the rest of the year. I’ve tried layering it underneath holos and other finishes, but I find that it really looks nicer when worn alone. I wanted to try the Electropop collection by just choosing a single shade, and I’m glad I went with this. I’m looking to get other colors from the collection now though, like I’m eyeing Kinetic Candy, a light blue, Aquadelic, a bright tea, and Sweet Hook, a pastel lilac.
