China Glaze Electric Beat

Out of the three ElectroPop polishes I own, I think Electric Beat is my favorite.

I mean, look at it.  This light blue -- but not pastel -- creme is just so delicate and yet still has that pretty remarkable pop to it.  In real life, it's a tad lighter than it photographs and seems like it may be a dupe for Essie Lapis of Luxury (I'll have to do comparison shots soon to confirm).  While it looks a bit jellyish in finish, this is a true creme that applies slightly gloopily in two coats with no streaks.

The thing that I'm most shocked about after trying 3 ElectroPop polishes is how watery and gloopy they are.  I've never found China Glaze to have poor formulas, but I'm willing to overlook this blip because I really do adore this light, almost cornflower blue.



And that glossy sheen.  How can you not forgive a polish that reflects light like that?  And that's without a top coat!

This color really makes me crave spring so I can whip out more of these shades.  I'm really surprised at how much I've really come to like the ElectroPop shades.  Now I need to get my hands on Sweet Hook...

What do you ladies think of this blue?  Good for winter or should I hold out a bit more?

  8. Thanks! The collection as a whole is really wearable, but yeah, the formula leaves much to be desired.
