China Glaze Electic Lilac

Last time I showed you the haul I got in the mail. It was tough to pick which one to try first but since its sunny and I haven't worn a glitter lately, I present China Glaze Electric Lilac!

This polish is gorgeous iridescent multi glitter in a sheer lavender base, so I used 3 coats. The glitter is so densely packed in the bottle, working with it can be a little tricky. This is bumpy on the nail! I used a coat of Poshe fast-dry topcoat first, but I didn't like the slight texture. So I swiped a coat of some random clear polish and then topped it with a good coat of Seche Vite. That made it nice and smooth. Next time I'll just use the Seche to begin with. Another thought I had was that this would be great for layering. I think Orly Snowcone would look great under Electric Lilac. What do you think?


  1. I really got to get this someday. It looks great! I agree that it would look awesome layered... Snowcone or something lilac...

  2. i love this one- is it from their speciality 50 pc glitter collection?

  3. wow i ordered it from h2t cause of this post. also you have beautiful nails.

  4. Ive seen this layered over Secret Agent Periwinkle, and it was awesome! Great glitter!

  5. @nihrida This would definately suit you! Isn't there a nice lilac Essence polish?

    @amusedPolish You are correct, this is one of the 50 Specialties.

    @aaminahsmom Hehe, I feel like such an enabler. Thanks!

    @JackieS Cool! I've been wanting to order Secret Agent and keep dithering. Now I have a reason to put it back in my (neverending) cart!

  6. This is my favorite CHG glitter. So pretty!
