Brand: China Glaze
Color: Rodeo Fanatic
Collection: Rodeo Diva Fall 2008
This shade has been in my collection for years, though it has been seldom used. Rodeo Diva is a quintessential fall collection filled with dark, vampy colors–and tons of shimmer! China Glaze has long been one of my favorite polish brands because of the versatility of their color offerings. China Glaze is now big 3 free, though Rodeo Fanatic is not due to age. Rodeo Fanatic is a blue-teal color with gorgeous microglitter shimmer.
The formula of this polish was good. The formula can be slightly runny causing the polish to pool a bit around the cuticle and outer nail bed. The shimmer is even throughout.
This polish applied well. The polish was opaque in 2 coats. The application was not streaky at all and evened out beautifully.
This color is simply gorgeous in direct sunlight as it really showcases the shimmer and depth of the color. The color can fall a bit flat in the shade. It is a great color for fall and the shimmer gives it a different flare than a creme of a similar shade. It is cool toned would complement most skin tones.
This polish wore pretty well. I did have some minor chipping after a few days of wear, but nothing very noticeable.

This product is big 3 free, as it contains formaldehyde resin and camphor. The other ingredients are typical of what you would find in a nail polish and some are likely toxic to the lungs and nervous system, which is not at all surprising considering it is nail polish. It is best to polish nails in a well ventilated area and do not inhale over an open bottle.
Shimmers are not my ‘thing.’ It has taken me some time to truly appreciate this color. I bought this color not too long after it was released and have maybe worn it 3 times. I am pretty critical of shimmers but this one is a nice shade. It is a really pretty shade and quality product and is big 3 free.
