The Electric You Collection by Celestial Cosmetics

Now, these are neon holos done right! The Electric You Collection is a collaboration between Celestial and Color4Nails. This collection is inspired by the Electric Zoo music festival in New York. It is based on electronic dance music and reflects what people wear to dance festivals. These colours are amazing! For each swatch I used a white base to really make the colours pop! Since all of these polishes have very similar formulas I will talk about that after the swatch photos.

"Merge" - A hot pink linear holo. So pink and perky!

"Inception" - A hot blue linear holo. I found this one look best with an extra coat to make the colour more pigmented.

"Tantrum" - A hot red/orange liner holo. This appear to be mostly orange, but has a bit more depth to it.

"Adrenaline" - A hot green linear holo. Such an amazing bright lime green!

"Trip" - A hot orange/yellow linear holo. This one reminds me of oranges, as it has a real citrus colour to it.

"Singularity" - A hot purple linear holo. This one will be in limited supply and will be sold as a prototype, due to issues with the formula.

The colours are really bright and pigmented, but are also quite sheer. On their own the polishes build up to opacity in about four coats, but they look much better over the white base to make the colours louder and brighter. Over the white base I did between two and three coats to give it a bright, rich colour. Depending on how bright or dark you want the finish would depend on how many coats you would use. These are amazing polishes! They apply smoothly and are by far the best neon linear holographic polishes I have ever seen. This collection will be available from the 1st of July.
