So, we all know that China Glaze’s Tronica got a bad wrap. The scattered holographic effect wasn’t strong enough for a lot of polish lovers, and many of the colors seemed to be repeats from the OMG collection. But, I really didn’t have too much of a bone to pick with Tronica regarding that. I liked the colors and the scattered holo’s don’t bum me out. Whatever!
Techno Teal is a really nice color. The teal is almost a perfect tone. It’s saturated, but not too dark. If I had to say, on me at least, it seems to lean slightly more blue. But I like how the color is still bright, but not too light or dark. I’d love this color without the holo.
I will admit, the formula on this holo was a little bit fussy. I did have some bald spots. However, I don’t use a holographic specific basecoat. But compared to how OPI DS’s apply, I would say this collection is harder to apply. I used two coats and with the exception of the couple bald spots, I got pretty good opacity.
I think overall I really like the color of this polish, so I didn’t mind the little problems I had with the formula. If it was a different color, I probably would have been more annoyed. Unforunately, the wear on this polish was typical holo; as in, not very good. Though I did really enjoy this manicure while it lasted!
Where to Buy: Online Retailers (or I recently found these on clearance at Sally’s for $1.99!) / $ 5 (ish)
Were you anti-Tronica? Do you feel that linear holo’s are a little too intense sometimes? I do.
