China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You

I really hope the name for this polish was an intentional Simpson's reference on China Glaze's part, because to have such an awesome polish as an homage to my favorite Simpsons character, Ralph Wiggum, would truly be icing on the cake.

I don't think China Glaze has ever made a polish quite like Choo-Choo Choose You. To me, this is hands-down the star of their fall collection, All Aboard. It's a difficult polish to describe, but I guess if I had to try and sum it up, I'd say it's a deep, smoky taupe base with dense, color-shifting shimmer that changes from gold to green. The shimmer is truly breathtaking and it's what really makes this polish something special.

I had a hard time capturing the shift on camera; the green comes out in low light, making it tough to get a decent photo of it. I put up one quick snap I was able to manage, but I'm going to try and get some more later today, so I'll update if I get some better pics of it!


*drool* Isn't she gorgeous?! China Glaze really outdid themselves with this one. The shimmer is so stunning and it's such a unique color. This definitely falls into the category of what I like to call "car crash polishes"--y'know, the ones where the shimmer is so distractingly mesmerizing that whenever the light hits it, your eyes are instantly drawn to it, no matter what you're doing at the moment! So wear with caution, ladies. ;)

The formula is touch thin, but nothing too bad. I used three coats here.

If you get only one polish from All Aboard, make it Choo-Choo Choose You. The shimmer is unlike anything I've seen before in a mainstream polish and the base is a deliciously rich and creamy taupe that's so perfect for fall.


  1. The name on this polish is too cure and it would be so cool if it was in reference to The Simpsons too. Gorgeous color and I can see why so many people are going crazy over it.

    1. Thanks Lisa! I totally get the hype with this shade too--it's amazing!
