China Glaze- Choo-Choo Choose You [Swatch]




Today I've got a polish from China Glaze's 2014 Fall release, All Aboard, to show you. This is China Glaze- Choo-Choo Choose You. I'm pretty certain it's the most talked about and hyped shade from the entire collection, so let's take a look!



Choo-Choo Choose You (har haaar) is a cool-toned, smoky purple-taupe base packed with color-shifting shimmer. The shimmer has an oil-slick, rainbow effect, shifting from red-orange-green. It's a really nice contrast to the base!

Artificial light, two coats:



Outside, shade:



My pictures really don't do it justice. This shade is gorgeous- way to go China Glaze!

Sun:


Formula: It's slightly on the sheerer side, but the viscosity is sort of a medium thickness. It is buildable though, and applies fairly well if you don't overload the brush. To me, it seems like this type of multichromatic finish tends toward a fairly sheer formula (across all brands), so this could have been way, way sheerer than it is. With a slightly thicker second coat, I had very opaque coverage! This is nicer than I was expecting!

  4. I already ordered this, I think it's THE color of this fall! Absolutey gorgeous... and a typical China Glaze surprise - a couple rather meh collections and then they come up with this gorgeous thing!

  5. Oh, yes, this is, in fact, THE standout shade of the collection. Though, Lug Your Designer Luggage is unique for CG in my opinion and worth picking up also!

  7. I have that one also, but wasn't thrilled with my swatch photos, so I dunno if I'll show it! It IS unique though!



    Also, Hello! I just realized who you are, and I love your videos!

  10. Oh I do like that oil-slick effect, although recently I've definitely been gravitating more towards cremes, but this is pretty!

  11. I loved this one so much that I had to order it immediately when the collection was released in Europe! I still have to use it though and I wonder if I should give it a try alone or layered on a darker base.
