China Glaze Electric Nights Summer 2015 Swatches & Review

31 comments

Hiya guys! I have been wanting to do these swatches for a very long time. This actually took a month to get to me, which I was very unhappy about and will definitely not purchase from the same e-retailer again. But the wait was more than worth it, because this China Glaze collection is my favorite in a very long time. I'm sure by now you guys might have already heard and seen the glorious neons known as the Electric Nights Summer 2015 Collection.

China Glaze Electric Summer Swatches & Review

The Electric Nights Summer 2015 Collection by China Glaze consists of nine cremes and three glitter toppers. Needless to say, this post is extremely photo heavy so you have been warned.

UV Meant To Be
China Glaze - UV Meant To Be

UV Meant To Be is a light and bright blue creme. I think this is one of my favorites in the collection due to the opacity and consistency. It applies very smoothly and self levels to perfection in just two coats. It's a definite must-have if you don't mind it not being a true 'neon'.

Daisy Knowing My Name
China Glaze - Daisy Knowing My Name

Daisy Knowing My Name is a yellow creme polish. I feel like if layered over white, it would make the 'neon' pop out more than what's shown in these photos. Even though the formula is supposed to be a creme, it applied and felt more like a jelly. The formula is very streaky and sheer on the first two coats. Swatched here using three to four thin coats and sealed with Seche Vite.

Plur-Ple

Plur-Ple is another bright shade in purple creme. Even though I do like the color, it's not a neon complexion to me. The formula was thin resulting in minimal cuticle flooding and the consistency was sheer. Also it does dry to a natural matte finish, but I did use topcoat to smooth out the layers. Swatched here in three thin coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.


Glow With The Flow

Glow With The Flow is a neon pink creme. Finally a true neon! Much more neon and vibrant in person, especially on a lighter skin tone. I don't think it suits me as much as I wish it would, but if you're a fan of pinks this won't disappoint. Formula is a tad streaky, but it self levels really well as you layer it. Swatched here in three thin coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.


DJ Blew My Mind

DJ Blew My Mind is an electric blue creme. This blue leans a lot more towards neon than UV Meant To Be and with a white undie it would definitely make the cut. The formula was pretty good and applied with ease. Fantastic opacity with just one layer. But there is a downside to this beauty, it is a really bad stainer. Even with a base coat, I found my nails looking like smurfs so use with caution. Swatched here is two layers sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.


Treble Maker

Treble Maker is green-blue toned creme. Such a unique shade! I didn't think I was going to like it as much as I actually do. There is just something about the tone that's really intriguing. The formula was really easy to apply and had good opacity in a single layer. I didn't experience any staining myself, but have seen mild staining from other bloggers. Swatched here is two coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.


Violet Vibes

Violet Vibes is a bright purple creme. This was again one of those that is supposed to be a creme, but it ends up feeling more on the jelly shade. The formula is not as thin as Plur-Ple and the shade is much more vibrant. It is just as sheer as the other purple shade, however this one does end up evening out much nicer with each layer. Swatched here in three thin coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.


Home Sweet House Music

Home Sweet House Music is a light orange creme. It is a tad bit more neon in person than showcased in my swatches. For an orange shade, I actually ended up liking it much more than I thought I would. The formula is like a few of the others here in which it's thin and streaky on the first few layers. Again though, it self-levels really well and has a nice opaque finish after only a few coats. Swatched here is three thin coats sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.


Red-y To Rave

Red-y To Rave is a red-orange neon creme. I will say first and foremost that my photos don't do the color any justice. It's much brighter and neon in person. This is probably my favorite in the entire collection, it's incredible and I know I'm repeating myself but it's SO neon. Great formula and consistency, not too thick or too thin. Swatched here in two coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.


Can I Get An Untz Untz
China Glaze - Can I Get An Untz Untz

Can I Get An Untz Untz is a clear based glitter topper filled with blue, purple, and green hexes. I love the formula and consistency, the glitters applied very smoothly without cluttering. Very nice, much more so than I expected it to be. Swatched here with two layers over Daisy Knowing My Name and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.

Let the Beat Drop

Let the Beat Drop is a clear glitter topper filled with red, pink and orange hex glitters. Definitely my favorite among the three glitters. The color combination is super vibrant and it would look great over a white base as well. Great formula and consistency, I didn't experience any issues applying each layer. Ample glitters in each brush stroke and they spread nice and even without clutter. Swatched using two thin coats over Home Sweet House Music and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.



Point Me To The Party

Point Me To The Party is a clear glitter topper with multi-neon colored hex glitters. Such a fun glitter, it feels like the perfect blend of the entire collection rolled into one. I actually can't wait to try this one over white, I know it'll look unbelievable. Again, consistent formula with the other glitters. Applied very smoothly and without any issues. Swatched here using two coats over Glow With The Flow and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.


Overall I am completely happy with this collection, even with the minor issues encountered here and there including the not-so-neon shades. None of these were layered over white, which could be part of the reason I found so many of the shades not to be true neons. The glitters are gorgeous and all three remind me of something out of indie heaven. Could it be they are starting to catch on to what makes us fall in love?! I definitely hope so because China Glaze you have now set me up for high hopes for the next collection! So tell me guys, what did you think of this collection?

  11. Summer is my favorite season for nail polish solely b/c that's when everyone puts out neons.
    The blues & purples are calling my name.

  14. Let the Beat Drop and the other glitter top coats look like great partners for all of the neons that are coming out this summer. Are those glitters matte?

  18. Gorgeous swatches of these! I really love this collection and I like the thinner, jellyish formulas. It's so weird about the stainer issues, because mine didn't stain at all. I guess I got really lucky, because I've seen several people mention it.

  21. I love it when brands pick up on indie trends! I am a sucker for neons so this is right up my alley! It sounds like the formulas are a bit tricky, as they were with the Sunsational collection which is a favourite of mine. I won't let it deter me!
