China Glaze: Tronica Swatches Part I

These are China Glaze Tronica holographics I ran out and grabbed this morning. I'm not going to lie, I'm somewhat disappointed. They're not as holoy as I had hoped. They're still gorgeous none the less.
I've broken this into two parts because there are 12 polishes.
Hologram, Laser Lime, Mega Bite, Techno Teal, Digital Dawn, and Gamer Glam.

This is 2 coats of Hologram. It's only slightly holographic. It reminds me a lot of Sally Hansen Diamond.

It's gorgeous but not what I was hoping for. I was really looking for a OMG dupe :(.

You can see it's slightly holographic nature here.

A blurry picture to show some of the holographicness.

This is 2 coats of Laser Lime. It's a scattered holo and it reminds me of Milani Hi-Tek.

I love green holos :).

You can see a bit of the holographicness here.

This is 2 coats of Mega Bite. It's a greenish gold color with scattered holo.

This color is so ugly! -_- Like a booger green gold color. 

EW! -_-

This is 2 coats of Techno Teal. I LOVE this color. 

It has a slight scattered holo effect.

This color is the perfect blue.

This is 2 coats of Digital Dawn. This is a very strange color. It's a pinkish brown polish with a same sort of holographic effect.

I'm not sure if I like this polish or not.

It almost seems like it has a bit of red in it too.

This is 2 coats of Gamer Glam.

I love the color of this polish too. 


:) What do you guys think of this collection? 
I'll be posting the rest of it on Tuesday!


  1. lol at your description of mega bite. This collection disappoints me, I wanted it to be like OMG but better. I'll still pick up a couple though

  2. Like Jen, I'm kinda disappointed too, but techno teal looks great, so this one is definitely going to my WL =)

  3. Thanks girl, awesome swatches!!! Although I feel like I just found out I won't be getting 1 million dollars as it goes for holo effect of the collection, Techno Teal and Gamer Glam still remain on my WL after seeing your swatches. Techno Teal is a perfect colour, with or without holo.

  4. i want the teal and thats it :( where did you get these? thanks for the swatches

  5. definitely pretty...but disappointing! :/

  6. pretty!!! i love all the colors :)

  7. How disappointing that these are only scattered holos! I'm not sure I'll be getting these, might stick to OMG. Thanks for the swatches!

  8. The only ones I like are Techno teal and Gamer Glam. The rest is just disappointing, that's all I can say.

  9. I don't find these disappointing! I think your nails look gorgeous in these photos. I really like the look of Hologram, Techno Teal and Gamer Glam.

    I'm off to see if I can buy them online right now!

    Thanks for the great post. I'll be sure to review them on my blog and let you know what I think when I get to try them out for real.

    Cheers! x
    Polish. Potions. Whatever.

  10. Actually... I'm a bit unsure now. It seems like EVERYONE says how disappointing they are! Oh what a shame :-(

  11. well, i'm not impressed...i don't see a single polish that is must have for me...but tehno teal is nice one :-)

  12. thanks for your swatches, I think I'll be getting a few because I can't get enough of them :D

  13. Hmm, I was really hoping these would be OMG Part II. They're pretty but I don't know that I need them all like I thought I might.

  14. I Like Hologram and Gamer Glam, thank you for this post.

  15. I find this collection a really bad wanna-be-copy of OMG. :(
    If they released the same colours, they should be WOW-holographic and not ARE-THEY-OR-NOT?...
    But I was expecting even more WOW colours and they dissapointed me here as well. :(
    Wanted to buy all of them at first. Will buy none of them.
    Thanks for the swatches though, you have wonderful nails! I became your follower right away! ;)
