China Glaze - All Aboard Collection (Fall 2014)

Yes, I have finally obtained the fall collection I have been lusting after for months. This is China Glaze's fall 2014 collection, and I have to say it's pretty impressive. Looky looky!

All aboard is a dusty purple. No application problems, just a standard creme. 

Oh my goodness, this red. It's such a beautiful red, and you don't even know it until you're in direct sunlight. This is Conduct Yourself and it is an oxblood red with the most subtle shimmer ever. It is seriously blood red when applying. So gorgeous. Be advised: this stains - especially the side skin of the nail.

Well Trained is a creme teal. It's a lovely color, but if you already have a nice teal, you probably don't need this one. This also stains pretty bad.

Nice Caboose! I don't know how to describe this color. It's a shimmery magenta? I like nonetheless. The shimmer in it really makes it pop.

Lug Your Designer Baggage. It's slightly more brown than pictured, but the glitter flecks in it make it unique. It just has a nice effect to it.

One Track Mind. Award for easiest application goes to this. One coat and you're good to go. This is ONE COAT. The Off Shore summer collection has a red - Seas the Day - in in that would pair so nicely with this. Also, this has to look wonderful in matte.

Mind the Gap. This was a little too sheer when first applied, and this is 3 coats. It's super shimmery and has a bit of a gold to olive green color shift to it.

Don't Get Derailed is probably one of the most unique greens I own. It's the perfect base color for camouflage print. It also reminds me of the color of military/utility jackets used for fashion.

What Are You A-Freight Of? To me, this color is almost identical to last year's Charmed, I'm Sure from the fall collection. It's a deep eggplant creme.

Stop That Train! This one stands out the most because of it's doesn't go along with the other color scheme. But, it's an almost frosty orange. Application was smooth.

I Choo-Choo Choose You. This one is continuously being sold out everywhere. I can see why - it's pretty different from the others in the collection and it has a color shifting shimmer in it. I like it a lot, even if it is hard to photograph.

Overall, I am digging these shades. When the seasons change, it just puts me in a mood for colors suitable for that season. In the spring, I am definitely feeling pastels, summer - neons, fall - vampy, dark shades, and winter is usually a transition from deep shades to seasonal colors and mainly glitters of red, green, and gold.

The only color I did not include was "Loco Motive." I will have it in a separate post.
