China Glaze: Tronica Swatches Part II

Hello everyone! I'm about to run out to go to work, but as promised I'll show you the rest of the Tronica swatches.
Also, today I reached 100 followers so I'll post about my second giveaway tonight!

Cyberspace, 3D Fantasy, Hyper Haute, High-Def, Virtual Violet, and Electra Magenta.

This is 2 coats of Cyberspace. It's a very pretty scattered holographic taupe brown.

I love this color. It's almost a champagne.

Only a tiny bit holographic.

This is 1 coat of 3D Fantasy. It's a hot pink scattered holo.

It looks more coral here, I think.

A little bit of holographic nature here.

This is 1 coat of Hyper Haute. This is a dark pink scattered holo.

This is a really opaque and gorgeous color.

Why isn't this more holo? Grrr.

This is 2 coats of High-Def. This polish is a medium blue scattered holo.

This color is driving me wild right now. It's such a great blue.

Yum. Looks a little spacey here.

This is 1 coat of Virtual Violet. I could have used 2 but it looked opaque enough to me at the time. It's a deep purple with scattered holo. I think this one is my favorite.

This color is the one I recommend picking up.

I think this one has the most holo.

This is 1 coat of Electra Magenta. A magenta scattered holo.

This one is pretty too.

Looks pretty holoy here.

All in all, if you're looking for super holographic polishes- this collection isn't for you. There's a lot of really good one to two coat polishes that are very pigmented and somewhat holographic. I'm a bit disappointed but I feel like this is still a good collection. 

And for fun, some nail wheel swatches.

Swatches go in order of which I swatched them (starting with Part I).
This under artificial lighting.

1 through 6 in sunlight.

5 through 9 in sunlight.

10 through 12 in sunlight.

All of them in sunlight.

  1. How much do China Glaze polishes cost over there? I really want some but live in the UK and they're really hard to get hold of and expensive! x

  4. Virtual Violet is awesome! And High-Def too, actually. Hm ... your swatches are fixing my disappointment on Tronica. Yes, they're not as holo as we thought they would be, but still, they are beautiful!

  5. Olivia- the beauty store where I buy my polish sells them for about $3.25 each, but they retail in most stores for $6.

    Ulmiel- That's exactly how I feel! If I wasn't expecting everything to be very holo I would have loved this collection! It's still gorgeous and I'm trying not to over look that!

    I can't wait to see them in person.
    Do you know if they are already available at Sally Beauty stores?

  9. They won't be in Sally's until spring. These are from a local beauty supply store for professionals.
