China Glaze Electra Magenta - Imagination In Colour

China Glaze Electra Magenta

Hey girls 🙂 sorry I’ve been away a while… as per usual it’s the work-blog-life balance that I’ve been treading carefully for a while that went off course, so I had to take a little break! Because of this I actually missed the A-Z Series posting day, so I’m catching up tonight. This one is a polish beginning with ‘E’. I’m finding that each week I seem to find loads of polishes beginning with the next week’s letter, but as soon as the next week comes around I can’t find any beginning with that letter! I think I might be going a bit loopy! Oh and by the way… I shortened my nails a LOT this weekend so there will be some pictures from pre-cull… but these ones are shorties 🙂

I chose China Glaze Electra Magenta, which is from the Tronica Collection circa 2011! I still find this collection exciting because I’d just started blogging, and only really started finding out about China Glaze and OPI and all the US salon brands, and I remember the excitement of finding an entire world of nail polish!

China Glaze Electra Magenta 2

China Glaze Electra MagentaElectra Magenta is a muted orchid pinky purple colour, filled with holographic particles – the finish is scattered holographic. Which I love, it sparkles so much in the sun! The colour I’m not so sure on myself. Don’t get me wrong it’s stunning in the sun, but away from the sun it’s a very dull, very muted appearance and really quite plain… the colour is kind of a non-colour in my eyes because it’s so un-colourful! Am I making sense? Am I just rambling again? 😛


Electra Magenta applies nice and easily; two coats for full opacity and the polish doesn’t drag or pull (which can happen with some holos). It dries really quickly, to a fairly dull finish so a topcoat is a must, for me anyway! It doesn’t really affect the holographic effect.

This is definitely more of a ‘collector’s item’ for me, more so than a polish I keep because I love it… it’s pretty but unless there’s a shining sun it just doesn’t really do it for me.

As it’s not on sale anymore, your best chance of finding this is in a blogsale or on the Facebook nail polish sale groups (just search ‘Nail Sale’ and a good few will come up!) which is where I found mine, and I don’t regret it 🙂 I adore my High Def which I bought around the same time so it’s nice to have a few of the collection.

I promise I will be blogging more regularly from now! <3
