I've got some swatches from the China Glaze All Aboard Collection to show you today. I picked up Lug Your Designer Baggage, Mind the Gap, Loco-motive, and Choo-Choo Choose You. I have to admit that just based on the pictures of the bottles that I found on the internet, I was a bit underwhelmed. I am happy to say that, despite my initial impressions, this collection has some really awesome polishes!

Lug Your Designer Baggage is a chocolate brown with lighter beige flakies and a copper microshimmer. I'm a little wary of brown on my nails against my very fair skin (Illamasqua SB 2 for reference), but it was so pretty in the bottle that I had to take a chance. The formula went on with no problems in two coats. I was pleasantly surprised with this brown. I think it will be a great fall color, and I suspect it would look even better on darker skin tones. (Sorry, the shade picture went insane with shiny top coat.)

Choo-Choo Choose You is plummy purple base with holographic shimmer that reflects orange and green. This one, in my opinion, is the star of this collection. I usually hate purple on my nails, but I am so glad I took a chance on this one. It is absolutely beautiful! It's quite the shape shifter and seems like it has its own coat of unicorn pee built right in. Yessss!!!! Amazing.
