Urban Decay Electric Nail Polish Trio Review

 Urban Decay calls their Electric Nail Trio a "white hot set" that includes "two exclusive, never-before-seen shades: Deep End and Goldmine. The perfect way to complete this foxy threesome? A revamped version of everybody's  favorite shade Woodstock. Our long wearing, chip resistant formula has a high gloss finish that's tough and durable yet flexible. Each shade is 3-free - formulated without toluene, formaldehyde, or DBP." This trio is made up of three 5ml (.16 fl oz) and sells for $12. I believe the Electric Nail Trio is limited edition. Urban Decay does not test on animals, but their parent company, L'Oreal, is not cruelty free. These mini nail lacquers were made in the USA.

 Urban Decay Electric Nail Trio comes housed in a black cardboard box. The word Electric is printed on the top of the box in multicolored letters. A product description can be found on the back of the box, the ingredients on the base of the box. The three polishes are really wedged in there, I need to use a pen or dotting tool to pry these polishes out! Each mini lacquer is housed in a rectangular glass bottles with shiny silver caps. The Urban Decay logo is printed on the front of the bottle, the shade name on the back. 
Urban Decay says they "went luxe with the brush. Its got 200 strands and applies polish with a smoother finish and amazing control." Urban Decay's brush is pretty nice - they're kinda long for the size of the bottle. Flat and on the stiffer side. Goldmine's brush is splayed badly, but the other two are in good shape.
 Deep End is a "peacock blue". I'd call it more of a teal and it leans just a little green than blue. Deep End has a metallic finish that does show brush strokes slightly. This lacquer takes two coats to reach opacity. Deep End dries quickly, about a minute per coat. I was so impressed by Deep End's wear from - I got five days out of this beautiful teal with just a little chipping. I should mention that I was not easy on my hands in those five days - I washed dishes several times and assembled and disassembled furniture. Deep End was a little stubborn to remove and it did stain my nails a bit.
 Goldmine is a chunky gold glitter polish. For having such large flecks of glitter, this polish is surprisingly easy to work with. Just one coat lays down a good amount of glitter - three coats gives almost full coverage. This glitter polish dries pretty quickly, a minute or so per coat. Like many chunky glitters, Goldmine chips easily and is a pain in the butt to remove!
 Woodstock is a "neon pink" that isn't quite neon in my book. To me, Woodstock is more of a bright bubblegum pink with a rubbery matte finish. This bright pink requires three coats, each of which dries pretty fast. I've had mixed wear from Woodstock - once is wore four days with moderate chipping, another time it struggled to make it to the second day. Woodstock removes easily.
Urban Decay's Electric Nail Trio is great! The three bold shades mix and match well. All three shades have solid formulas - they apply and wear well. Deep End is my personal favorite of the three (click here to see the dupe I found). I think I'll reach for the Electric trio often this summer. I definitely recommend picking up this pack of tiny polishes before its gone!

  1. That pink color is really pretty! You're right though, it's not really neon :/


    1. I hate pink, but I really like Woodstock! Definitely not as bright as UD tries to pass it off to be though.

  2. As a neon chipmunk mary is very familiar with what is neon and what is not.
