Indie Week: All That Glitters - Cha Cha Twist

For today's indie, I have another one that's been sitting around for a while, and I've been dying to try it. I just didn't know if I should use it alone, put it over a base color, etc. I finally decided, but I think this polish is very versatile and would look great alone or over several options. That polish is Cha Cha Twist by All That Glitters.


Cha Cha Twist is a bluish-clear base with lots of glitter in it. It has large turquoise hex glitter, red squares, smaller turquoise glitter, and even some bar glitter. It has quite the array of glitters, but the blues juxtaposed with the red glitter really makes it pop.


It was difficult to choose a base color for this, but I went with a deep blue color. I used KleanColor - Neon Sapphire, and then applied two coats of Cha Cha Twist. It's all topped with one coat of Seche Vite.


Application was pretty easy. The polish applied smoothly, and I didn't do any glitter manipulation - the glitter was evenly distributed on its own. I also didn't have to fish for any larger glitter, as that also came out and applied with the rest of the polish easily.


Unfortunately, my camera is still having difficulty focusing on very glittery, textured manicures, so these pictures do not do it justice. The glitters are very shiny and holographic in person, and the turquoise and red really shine and look amazing over the darker blue polish.

If you would like to buy Cha Cha Twist, you can find it in All That Glitters's Etsy shop here. All That Glitters almost always has something in stock, so it's a nice change from having to rush and wait for restocks like with other indie makers. I have gotten a few All That Glitters polishes, and I would definitely recommend them.

  1. ooooo....pretty! It looks really bumpy though. Did it smooth out with the top coat?

    1. Almost all the way. It's still a little textured to touch, but I only put on one layer of Seche Vite. A thicker layer or a second layer would probably make it completely smooth. But the glitter lays really flat at least!
