I’m Not Lion has never been on any of my must have lists. Still I couldn’t resist to buy it, it was soooo sparkly. *_* And now that Christmas and New Year’s Eve are just around the corner, I think that buying shimmery polishes is totally reasonable. And another good reason to buy this is that China Glaze is very good in making these kind of microglitters. They just rock this finish.
And they did a pretty good job in this case too. :) The color is unbeliveable. In natural lights it almost appears to be only a nude, but the minute some artificial light hits it, it starts to shine and sparkle like crazy. *_*
I love this particular shade of gold a lot, it’s not too yellow, nor too cool, just perfect for everything. :)
The first coat didn’t cover much, I was even a bit afraid, but after the second coat it was flawless. I didn’t have any problems with the coverage, but with the wearability…… :/ I applied it one night and I had to fix the chipping several times already on the next day. Though it’s easy to fix, because it’s shimmery, but it’s sad anyway… :( :( :(
Still I can’t be mad at it. ;) Why? Because it looks like this:
And like this:
This is the first China Glaze polish I have problems with, but it’s not that simple. Because I would repurchase it anytime. Is it beautiful? Y-e-s. Does ot chip? Yes. :( But is it beautiful? Y-E-S. Then do I care if it chips? (wait for it…) NO. This polish can do anything it wants. It can chip or flake or drink my coffee or even push my other polishes off of the shelf, I don’t care, until it looks like this. I guess I sold my soul to the devil. :D
