China Glaze Summer 2015 Electric Nights Collection Swatches & Review

Hey you! Thanks for joining me today for some polish lovin! Today I have the China Glaze Electric Nights collection for Summer 2015 to show you. It's a twelve shade collection with 9 neon crèmes and 3 neon glitters. This is a super hawt bunch of colors and I can honestly say I love every polish! A little disclaimer, neon shades are very hard to photograph completely accurately so please know that there may be slight color differences versus seeing them in real life. They all dry with a full to slight satin finish so I recommend using a top coat.

First is Red-y to Rave, a bright reddish orange neon crème. This one is bound to be uber popular, it's reminiscent of a redder, darker cousin of best selling China Glaze shade ever, Flip Flop Fantasy. This had a great formula, I used two coats.

Daisy Know My Name? is a super bright highlighter yellow. It's not bad considering most yellow polishes have crappy formulas, but this one took three coats to even out streaks. You could also layer one or two coats over a white base and get a brighter result. I prefer not to use "undies" though, so here it is by itself and I'm happy with the opacity!

Next up is Violet-Vibes, a berry magenta-y purple. Purple is not really my favorite color, but I like this a lot. This was a little thick and slightly streaky, I needed three coats to even it out.

Here is DJ Blue My Mind, a bright medium azure blue crème. I've heard some people had staining with this one but I didn't have an issue, but just be cautious and maybe double up on your base coat. This had a fabulous formula, two coats.

Home Sweet House Music is a hot neon orange. This one had kind of a more difficult formula, like the yellow, but it still wasn't terrible by any means. This one is a little darker in real life than I could capture in a photo, neons freak out my camera! This is three coats. I've heard using a white base with this one makes it brighter.

Next we have PLUR-ple, a cool, deeper but still bright purple shade. It's more of a royal purple than Violet-Vibes. I had to look up "PLUR" because I didn't understand the name of this and apparently it stands for "Peace Love Unity Respect", a mantra of sorts for the rave/electronica music scene. This is a beautiful color. It was a bit streaky so I used three coats.

UV Meant to Be is a lighter cyan blue than the other blue in this collection. I wouldn't say it's completely a neon, but it's very bright. This is probably my second favorite in the bunch, so happy and fun! I used two coats. I've heard this is another one you have to watch for staining on, but I didn't have any.

Glow With the Flow is a warm neon pink. I loved how this looked on me, SO summery! It was a bit streaky on two coats, so I used three.

This is Treble Maker, which might be my favorite of the collection. It's a crazy neon bright green. I don't have anything close to this in my collection and I am head over heels for it! Two easy coats. I've also heard this one has stained for some people, but I didn't notice any.

Let the Beat Drop has neon matte glitters in a clear base. It's got hot pink, pale pink and orange glitters, which kinda tinted the base a bit pink. This was pretty base heavy, so I got a lot of bubbles, but it was easy to get a good amount of glitter on the nail which was nice. This is two coats over Red-y to Rave.

Point Me to the Party is a neon matte glitter mix of pink, blue, green, orange and purple. It is the funnest and you need it! It reminds me of a bowl of Fruity Pebbles cereal. Same as the other glitter, it has a lot of clear base which can create thickness and bubbles, but has good glitter payoff on the nail. This is two coats over PLUR-ple.

Can I Get An Untz Untz is the last of the bunch, a neon matte glitter mix of green, blue and purple in a clear base. Same formula as the other glitters, I used two coats over UV Meant to Be. I love the name of this one and love hearing people say it haha.

These are available now at stores like Sally Beauty and Ulta. I am really happy with them all, China Glaze really hit a home run with these in my opinion. The formulas are pretty good for being so neon! And even though I have similar glitters in my collection from indie polish makers, it's cool to see a mainstream brand come out with something so on trend. What do you think of these? Are you neon-hungry like me??

See ya next time!
