China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You

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


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!

  5. I always buy my ChG online, since I'm not willing to pay the swiss price of 25$ ...

  6. That is an incredibly reasonable personal rule. I wouldn't be willing to pay that either, even if I am making sideways eyes at the $50USD Louboutin Rouge (that's totally never going to happen, I could buy 25 polishes at a discount store for that!). Import prices on nail polish is unfortunately ridiculous. :( Good luck finding a sweet deal.

  7. Thank you :-)
    BTW, I'm absolutely willing to pay 25$ or even more for a bottle of polish, just not for one I can get for 5$ online...

  24. I didn't want this one, then I saw your swatches and started to doubt... Then I saw Emilys swatches and started to doubt even more... Waited a day and just ordered the polish! You two really are going to be the main reason I go bankrupt ;)

  28. That's sucky :( weird how that sometimes happens!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Aww, and here I am thinking about ways to improve my pictures as sometimes I just do not like them. We are our own worst critics, right?

    Agreed on the color, very unique and lovely :).

  30. Thank you so much Kellie! I was very happy with how this set of pictures came out as well! Normally duochromes don't really show up in my little set-up so this was a surprise :).

    ReplyDelete
  31. Maybe, but it has been a while since I had smudges and I always sleep the same way :). Thanks Vic!

    ReplyDelete
  32. It happens to me sometimes as well - everyone goes crazy over a certain polish and I'm sitting there thinking "meh".

    ReplyDelete
  33. Seems to be the case for lots of polishheads :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd buy it online if I were you, you'll probably get the best price on it that way :).

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hope you find it indeed then, wouldn't want you to suffer a broken heart!
