It's Electrifying!

Today I have one of the beauties from my recent haul, China Glazes Electric Pineapple. When I first saw promo photos for China Glazes summer collection, I just knew I wanted to own this polish! In the photos I saw it looked like a bright and sunny yellow, I even thought it would have been a neon.

To my surprise, this polish ws a lot more complex that I thought! And at first is kind of turned me off, because I was expecting a neon yellow of some sort. But every time I saw it while shopping I'd pick it up and check it out but always  end up leaving it behind. If you read my last haul post, you know I found it on sale, it was so meant to be! I look a bunch of photos to try and help capture the colour of the polish, but in all honesty, this is one of those colours that changes shades depending on the lighting source. Take for instance the photo above and below this line of text.

This is under my desk lamp light, and I believe this is close to the true colour which I would describe as a pineapple that is not ripe yet! You know when yellow fruit, like a banana is not fully ripened it has a greenish hue to it? That is what colour this is. I do find that in natural light like the photo below the yellow comes out a bit more.

That being said, when in natural light the yellow actually looks a bit muted because of the green undertones. I think this was the perfect polish to wear for the last week of August and first week of September, can you believe it's September already!? My point is the muted feeling I get from the polish works great for fall, yet it is still a bright enough colour for summer.

EP actually reminds me of the new polish in China Glazes new fall line, I'm pretty sure it's called Trendsetter, I'm not sure I like it, looks too mustard for me lol. I highly doubt they are dupes, but they are definitely similar. Let me know if you've seen a comparison somewhere, I'd love to see it :)

BTW - let me know how you like the photo size in this post , I bumped them up a bit from the usual size. Do you think they are a good size or too big? I'd love to know what you think!


  1. This is such an ugly/beautiful color! I hate it so much I have to love it, haha. Quite an eye-catcher, anyway. :)

  2. How did you change the photo size? I like it?

  3. I think all my photos are this size on my blog! I really like the size. It is easier to see the nails! Love this polish.

  4. Ahhhhhhhhhk! I reallly want Electric Pineapple and Papaya Punch sooo bad. Thanks for the eyeball candy! Looks great on you.
    I like the photo size.

  5. Salla - yes, it is quite an interesting colour

    Fingers - when writing up the post you can just click on the photo and choose what size you wold like

    imfeelingnail-venturous - thanks, it was a suggestion from another reader, I'm glad I tried it out, I think I will try to keep them this size in the future

    JQ - Thanks! I just got both! Sadly, since summer ran away I probably wont wear papaya punch until next summer :(


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
