I’m sure everyone has seen swatches from this collection already, but I thought I’d share swatches of the four shades I got from this collection. When this collection was first announced, I wasn’t that impressed, to be honest. It looked very similar to Up & Away, with some slight differences. Several shades seemed dupeable, but in actuality, they are not.
Kinetic Candy is a soft blue creme with grey undertones. This shade is very flattering, and a beautiful blue color.
Aquadelic is a bright turquoise creme. It looks similar to For Audrey in the bottle, but it’s much brighter.
Gothic Lolita is a red grape purple with blue shimmer. The shimmer is definitely noticeable, but it’s not in your face kind of shimmer, if that makes sense. It’s subtle, but not overly so. Very pretty.
Electric Beat is a dusty and muted soft light blue that leans towards the cornflower and periwinkle spectrum. This one is my favorite of the bunch, this shade is super flattering.
There are some really great comparisons from some other bloggers that I found, if you are finding some of these colors too similar to some other shades out there. That is one thing that is really interesting about this collection is that China Glaze was able to make colors that are similar to some other colors, but different and unique enough on their own. Beautopia has two great comparisons of Electric Beat here. All You Desire also has some wonderful comparisons, here is the one she did for Aquadelic.
This collection should be appearing in stores very soon – it’s widely available online. China Glaze Polishes retail from $3-6, depending on your store of choice.
