ElectroPop In My Stash

Warning: This post is of entertaining nature only! I don't own any of the shades from the ElectroPop collection and I can't say if there are any dupes for them.

Before I say anything else, you must see Scrangie's post with swatches of the new China Glaze ElectroPop collection. China Glaze did it again. They came up with another collection that made me go crazy. The colors! Bright, glossy and so ... lively. I admit: I love it. The bad thing is I don't get China Glaze polishes for review/swatches anymore and it became really hard for me to get these polishes for a normal price. What's a girl to do than go look into her own stash for possible dupes. And that's exactly what I did.

Here's a first set of shades: light blue, periwinkle, turquoise and grass green (is it?) creme.

I don't care for the green shade (Gaga for Green) - it's too yellow-ish for me. That's probably the reason why I haven't found anything like it in my stash. But I did find the blue ones ... and they come quite close. Close enough for me. At least for now.

The second set of shades is warmer: yellow shimmer, coral, pink and fuchsia creme.

There it is. A yellow shade. I only own one yellow polish. Can you believe that? Let's skip that one, shall we ... I did find some shades that resemble the pinkish-coral bunch.

And the last set of shades: purple shimmer, bright pink, pale purple and already seen glitter.

Here are my parallels, without the Techno one.

Yeah, I think I'm good for now. I'm not saying these are really dupes or even close to the real thing, but you know - once you have as many polishes as me, the little differences don't matter that much anymore. China Glaze is still my favorite nail polish brand (besides Essence), but since it's become so hard for me to get it, I have to choose wisely which shades to buy. I'm still very tempted by Electric Beat though. By the look of it, it's my favorite from the collection.

Note: The photos of the original China Glaze ElectroPop shades belong to Scrangie.com. Thank you for letting me use your work, Scrangie! :*

What do you think about the China Glaze ElectroPop collection?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. I'm a big fan of China Glaze as well. Looking at this collection, I felt like I already had some colors that are close in my stash. However, I'm in the U.S. and would be happy to help you get ahold of some China Glaze! :)

  2. Electric beat, Aquadelic and Make some noise are my faves from the collection! But the whole collection is just amazing :)

  3. CG always come up with amazing colours year after year, but you are right, although these aren't dupes, you can do without them for now! I have the same problem. GC is hard to get here at a decent price!

    1. Hvala za komentar in za 'tag'. Sem ga že opazila in že razmišljam o svojih najbolj uporabljanih odtenkih. =)

  5. I really like it, too. So bright and shiny! But in case I decide to order some I will pick shades very very carefully (shipping US-Italy is quite expensive and distributors in my area have ridicolously high price tags), for sure I'll skip yellow and periwinkle (I own Orly Snowcone and it's just awful on my skintone), by now I'm really fascinated by fuchsia and purple!
    BTW your pretty skittle manis here really cheered me up (I'm craving Spring)!

  6. I'm on my way to try to get at least Gothic Lolita, Dance Baby and Eletric Beat, the rest is cool too.
    Last year there was rumours about ChG at Brazil, but I think that was just rumours, so I know exactly how to you feel about not being able to get all you want.

  7. Agreed. The only one I'm eyeing is Gothic Lolita.

  9. I also love the collection :)

    Bought five of the polishes :D

    Love them :)

  10. Yeah... I pretty much thought the same... The colors are nice and beautiful, but not really unique.

    I have never got my hands on H&M's Bella's Choice, and that's the reason why I bought Aquadelic. I only bought that colour and I wonder what it looks like irl (haven't received it yet).

    1. Well, then I guess we'll see it on your blog once it arrives. Can't wait. =)

  11. I know what you mean about the little differences not mattering as much when you have a big stash. These are awesome comparisons :)

  12. You can't order from Transdesign in your country? They already have it on sale.

    1. Transdesign has ridiculous shipping fees... 20 USD for 2 bottles. It's cheaper for me to buy ChG on Ebay.

      Delete
    2. Yeah I know, but if you buy 9 polishes, it comes to an ok price.

  13. Tale post je super, všeč mi je tale primerjava z originali in nekateri odtenki pridejo res blizu

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think that Make Some Noise is more coral and lighter than Rose Among Thorns. But it's just me. Other's a quite dupe-ish, agree. I'd like to own Aquadelic and Make Some Noise, they're my favorites.

  17. New collections are always exciting. I think the only one I'll buy is Gaga for green. They all look like polishes I probably have in my collection.

  18. This is best! Can someone give me this? HAHA. It's good that you posted it. :)
