Hey everyone! Welcome to my first Nail Polish Battle! Today, Chanel Troublante is taking on China Glaze Cabin Fever to see which is our favorite! I will refer to them as only “Polish A” and “Polish B” until the end of the post. There I will reveal which is which and hopefully you will let me know in the comments if you’ve guessed correctly and which is your favorite.
“Polish A” is on my index and pinky fingers. Formula was good. It was really runny when I first opened it and it really wanted to pool in my cuticles, so I left the cap off for a while and it thickened up nicely. It has a very good shift through the colors of pink to antique gold to bronze. Very smooth, very few brushstrokes after it dries. I used 2 coats plus topcoat for the photos.
“Polish B” is on my middle and ring fingers. Much better formula, but I’m not a fan of the brush. I prefer a stiffer brush, this one is rather “mop like” and I have a hard time painting the sides of my nails. This one doesn’t really show a pink except at extreme angles. It shifts through a bronze, antique gold, then to a bit of pink. Very smooth with very few brushstrokes showing once it dries. I used 2 coats plus topcoat for the photos.
Chanel Troublante, 2 coats plus topcoat & China Glaze Cabin Fever, 2 coats plus topcoat. Scroll to the bottom to see which polish is on which finger.
In my own opinion, the China Glaze wins the battle. I love the more pink shift it has and after it thickened up a little, the formula was great and I prefer the brush in this one. And of course the price, it’s about a fourth the cost of the Chanel.
Let me know in the comments!
Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.

I was interested in Troublante initially, but now after this review I am going to get Cabin Fever and forget Troublante. Looks better and the price is so much less!
Hi! Glad I was able to save you some money! I really preferred Cabin Fever. I hope you love it!!
