China Glaze Electric Pineapple

Have I lost my mind? Probably. Ever since China Glaze released this color in the Island Escape collection last summer I have not been able to stop thinking about it. I've seen swatches of this color, and I like it. I do not know why because yellow-greens are not really the best colors for me. There are many times I went into Ulta picked up this color, and tried to convince myself that we wouldn't mix. I always was able to put it down, and move on. Then I saw it in the clearance section a few weeks ago, and I figured why the hell not?

Electric Pineapple

Electric Pineapple is a bright yellow-green creme. 

I love this!  I don't think it's the best color on me, but it so funky and different I cannot keep my eyes off of it. It's funny how when it comes to nail polish I usually stick with colors I've always loved, but when I venture out  to something different they end up being some of my favorite colors (i.e. BL Wallis). I'm so glad I ended up getting this. I think my gut instinct about it was correct. I knew I'd like it. 

What are some colors out of your comfort zone that you ended up loving?

  1. I think it looks amazing on you! I remember when I first tried this color I had a weird reaction to it. It was literally love/hate lol. Since I've worn it a ton of times and everytime I get comments on it (good and bad lol).

  7. This is not my type of color, but it looks great on you!!  I haven't moved out of my comfort zone yet, so I can't answer your question, lol.

  8. Clearance is a wily minx! I do really like this one, but I am super partial to ugly snot colors.

  9. Well, I'm sure you know I absolutely love this color. There's not really a lot of things I won't wear, except I absolutely hate tomato reds on me. You know, the ones that are orangey? They look horrid on my skintone. Other than that, I'm venturing into brighter reds and I try to wear pinks although I'm only fond of the searing hot electric ones.

  10. This color is really awesome. I own it and love it. It's beauty is understated. I feel like it's very unique without being in your face...a surprising form of neutral color.

    Oh I loooove this color! Really unique. Pretty shade for what it is. I swear I consider it everytime I do nail art. I love using this color!

  12. Hahaha, I know what you mean! For me, it's bright orange. American Apparel's Poppy, and Sinful Colors Thimbleberry. Same thing. :)

  13. I love this color too. And I'd have to go with yellows as being out of my comfort zone. It has always been one of my least favorite colors but I am really drawn to it when it comes to polish for some reason. The same goes for orange too. And yay for clearance! I once bought a polish that looked like a plain black with some silver glitter in it and it ended up being a black linear holo!

  15. Love to be able to wear any yellow or a green/yellow like this one - but oh my! Yellow is just a dreadful shade on my fingers or toes. I don't get it as I wear it in garments and have always been told I look great in yellow - just not for nails I guess - or for that matter, yellow eye shadow is really bad on  me too.

  16. This looks great on you! I'm adding this one to my wishlist, you know I love my yellows. ^_^

    For me I find myself occasionally picking out pinks and reds, colors that I normally steer clear of.
