China Glaze I Herd That

6 Aug

As I mentioned in the last post, I picked up this polish from the On Safari Collection the other day. This one is a beautiful gold and copper glitter, with a small amount of holo glitter. It’s not nearly as holographic as I’m Not Lion (from the same collection.)

There’s barely any holo in this unless it’s in direct sunlight, and even then it is hard to see. If you look at the bottle, it looks like it’s mostly copper with a little bit of gold glitter. On the nail, it’s almost the opposite. Maybe it’s just that the gold stands out more but I think it’s a lot more gold on the nail than it is in the bottle.

 

 

You can see the holo a lot better in this picture, on the nail and in the bottle. When I took this picture, I had been wearing this polish for about 12 hours and you can already see the slight chipping on the tip of my ring finger. Also, I didn’t like this formula. It was slightly gloppy. Although the coverage was great. This is 2 coats.

If I had to choose between I’m Not Lion and I Herd That, I would choose I’m Not Lion. Although, part of that might be because I’m not a huge fan of gold 🙂

China Glaze I’m Not Lion Swatch

4 Aug

There is nothing that I love more than a really beautiful glitter polish. Especially if it’s a holo. So when I saw the 2 glitters in China Glaze’s new On Safari Collection, I knew they had to be mine. So I went to my local Ulta and picked up I’m Not Lion and I Herd That. Haha, China Glaze has such cute puns. I’ll eventually swatch I Herd That but today, I present you I’m Not Lion:

Wow, look at all that glitter *_* It looks like a perfect mix of gold and silver glitter so that on the nail, it looks like a champagne gold color. And a really beautiful holo effect too. In the sunlight the silver really comes out along with the beauty of the holo.

You can see the holo a little better in this picture, but my camera doesn’t show holo well.

Wow, this color is so beautiful. I usually paint my nails everyday but I loved this color so much I wore it for 2 days. The formula on this was perfect, nice and smooth. Some glitters and holos will dull down a lot once you put a top coat on but this one got 10 times more beautiful. And since it’s mostly just glitter, it dried super fast. I used 3 coats but I got full coverage in 2 coats.

I’m completely in love with this color. If you don’t own this color already, go to Ulta and pick it up or order off the internet or something. It’s totally worth it.
