China Glaze: Cha Cha Cha (Island Escape Collection)

Happy Monday my friends.  I hope all you mother's had a great mother's day and I hope everyone else treated their mom to something nice! 

It's finally starting to be nice out here. We still have some really cold days and tons of rain but it's been getting better. I am doing a "Boot Camp" with some of the girls from work on Mon, Wed. and Thurs. We're working our butts off to get in shape. Last week was week one of four, I was so sore! Today kicks off week two! Wish me luck!!!

Today I have a color from China Glaze's Island Escape collection to share with you.  This is Cha Cha Cha which China Glaze describes as a "vivacious shimmer green."  It reminds me of sour green apple Blow Pops!  It's a vibrant green apple green with shimmer.  

While I love this color I don't love it on my nails. I can't see many occasions for me to break out the crazy green shimmer but it's got a place in my Helmer nonetheless. 

The formula on this one was okay but I needed three coats for full opacity. I think it's more opaque than some of the other colors in the Island Escape collection but it's very sheer on the first two coats. It might even benefit from four.  Other than opacity I didn't have any issues with application. It was not streaky at all just sheer.

Did you pick this one up or are you skipping it?
