China Glaze Tronica Swatches & Comparisons

I've never done this much swatching and comparing.  I have a great appreciation for the blogs I visit daily, but that appreciation is now 10 fold.  :)  Pretty much all across with board with Tronica is a big DISAPPOINTING.  None of the colors hold a true holo status IMO.  Electra Magenta & Gamer Glam had the strongest holo effect.  All the others just give off an extremely mild holographic glow in bright sun.  Anything less than bright sun and it just looks like a dull shimmer.  This collection as a whole gets a huge fail  from me.  It's almost wrong that they labeled these holographic and got the nail world all a twitter about them.  Anyway... off to the pictures!

  1. That's kind of the same conclusion I came to, once I saw the MUA thread with comparisons to both the OMG collection (which I have nearly all of) and select colors from the Kaleidescope collection.

    I really, really, REALLY hope that China Glaze releases another holographic collection with the gorgeous rainbow-oilslick / linear holographic effects!!
