Hi loves! A few days ago I placed a little order with Hypnotic Polish, because I wanted a few China Glaze shades, along with LilypadLacquer Bronze Goddess and Colors by Llarowe The Mighty Red Baron. One of the shades I reeeally wanted was China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You and it did not disappoint!
Also, I'm posting together with my friend Emily from Very Emily today. We've been wanting to do a linked post for a while now and we finally made it happen ;-). So if you are interested to see what she thinks of this polish, make sure to check her review as well!
China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You is part of the Fall collection called All Aboard. It's quite unique, especially for a mainstream brand and I think that's one of the reasons it gets quite some loving. The base looks like a muted purple shade in the bottle but pulls more taupe on the nails. It's filled with a duochrome shimmer that looks either bronze or a bright shade of green, and as you can tell by my pictures the duochrome show easily!
Formulawise this applied thin but nicely. I needed 3 coats for proper opacity but it wasn't a hassle at all. Topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat it dried to a shiny finish. One thing though.. I had smudges the other day. I paint my nails at night, usually finish around 9 and watch some TV after that. I go to sleep around 11 and I never ever have smudges anymore since I use G&G. This time I did :-(. Not sure if it was the polish itself or the combination with the top coat or base coat that was troublesome, but it is something I thought I should mention.
I still recommend this shade, if only because it's really really pretty. Maybe I'll try another top coat next time I wear it to see if it makes a difference!
Did you get any shades from the China Glaze All Aboard collection? If so, which one(s)? Tell me in the comments!
