China Glaze® - Electric Nights Neon Collection (swatches and review)

**press sample
Hi guys! Today I have the China Glaze® Electric Nights Neon Collection to share with you! There are twelve polishes in the collection; nine creme/crelly polishes and three glitter toppers!

China Glaze

Daisy Know My Name? is a neon yellow creme, almost crelly. Great formula, as far as yellows go; needed just three thin coats. Not my favorite of the collection, but I've never been a big fan of yellows.

Home Sweet House Music is a pastel neon orange crelly. Pretty good formula needing three thin or two normal coats. I opted for two coats for my photos.

Red-y to Rave is a neon red with sort of an orangey/coral tone to it. Awesome formula! This one only needed two thin coats; though it is right on the edge of being a one coater. So freaking pretty, but was very hard to photograph , as it's way more neon in real life.

Glow with the Flow is a pastel neon pink creme. Another great formula! Again, this one was just two coats, but was almost one. More neon pastel in real life.

Violet Vibes is an ultra violet purple creme formula. This two coat beauty is just a tad deeper in person and is so gorgeous!

Plur-ple  is a blue toned purple creme and is on of my favs of the this tone of purple! Again just two coats!

DJ Blue My Mind is a bright blue creme; not really a neon, but is very bright! Great formula needing just two coats.

UV Meant to Be is a bright pastel blue creme with a teal tone and a wonderful formula! I did just one coat! Or you can opt for two thinner coats

Treble Maker is a bright lime pastel neon green creme. Again, just two coats!

Point Me to the Party is a neon green, orange, pink and blue matte multi-size glitter in a clear base. I did notice the base was slightly tinted, but I think that some of the pink glitters just bled a little. I'm interested to see if it gets worse as time goes one. This is a little base heavy and I found it difficult to get much glitter on my brush. You will want to do thin coats, but I was able to get enough by having my bottle upside down for a few minutes and then swirling my brush around inside. Here I did two thin coats over OPI My Vampire is Buff!

Let the Beat Drop is a hot orange and pink matte multi-size glitter in a clear base. Again a bit base heavy, but still gorgeous! I did two thin coats over OPI My Vampire is Buff.

Can I Get an Untz Untz is a cool neon blue and green matte multi-size glitter in a clear bas. Again it is pretty base heavy and the base is thin, so the glitters want to slide off the brush. I did two coats over OPI My Vampire is Buff.

I really loved this entire collection! I don't own very many neon polishes, so this was a welcomed addition to my collection. I also like that these do not require a white base. They may look brighter and a bit more vibrant over white, but even without it, they appear totally true to the color in the bottle.

Check out my quick "live" swatch video here.

Do you need them all? I really couldn't say. Like I said I don't own many neon, so I don't have anything to compare them to, but if you don't have many, I think they are totally justifiable.
