China Glaze’s Cha Cha Cha

As the fourth color I’ve worn in the Island Escape collection, China Glaze’s Cha Cha Cha reminds me a lot of the shoes I just posted about (below).I was kind of worried about this color. I thought it was a dark green, but it turns out it’s a lot lighter than I thought if would be. It probably has to do with it’s shimmer and light glitter base. Actually, it reminds me of a parrot. LOL. Maybe it’s the whole island theme. Oh, and I made sure to coat my nails with China Glaze’s No Chip Top Coat. It does…

And I know that most of you have issues with chafing (a.k.a. chub rub) as well. It’s normal, there’s no need to be embarrassed. Instead, why not find a solution, right?We’ve all tried the products on the market. Raise your hand if you’ve used deodorant, powder, Vaseline, biker shorts, and even the stuff runners use to stop the chafing. It’s kind of like this endless cycle isn’t it.…
