China Glaze Electric Beat

Another cloudy day, another spring polish to attempt to bring some happiness to my day!  From the China Glaze ElectroPop collection, this is Electric Beat, a light dusty blue that some have said is a lighter version of Secret Peri-Wink-Le.  I used a base coat of Poshe, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry.  This polish had the oddest consistency.  It was crazy thick and yet runny at the same time.  You had to wipe the brush carefully so the polish wouldn't pool onto the brush as you were applying.

Despite the weird application, it looks flawless on the nail.  I actually really like this color even though it's a blue (my normal DO NOT WANT) but I'm not sure I could wear it alone.  (More on that later.)

In the shade, I have a bit of lobster hands going on but the polish is still crisp.

And finally indoors with the flash - can we say electric?  Or not... I'm not sure I'd REALLY call this an electric blue just because I think of a brighter color than this, but it's definitely a pretty spring color.

  1. This is so pretty - I have Gothic Lolita on my nails right now and I found the same issue with the application. I'm not really sure what that's about, but I love the colors just the same!

    1. I have that one here and haven't worn it yet - oy! Yeah last year was a weird year for China Glaze application of polishes... not sure if anything changed or what!

  2. I was lucky that I found a couple of this collection when I was in a Sally's...I had not gone to see them - thinking they were all dupes of colors before. I did end up with this one, the aqua one and the Gothic Lolita it's called that is a beauty! I wish I had gone to see them when they first came out. Our Sally's is a long drive and it usually gets product lines in super late. I have tried to have them call me when they get stuff in...but they have no interest in being helpful it seems.
