China Glaze I'm Not Lion

Happy Friday afternoon everyone! Sorry I'm so late with this post, school is only a week in and kicking my ass already. Six classes is no joke. MERP. I've been behind with blog reading, so I'm sorry if I haven't stopped by this week, I plan on catching up over the weekend!

Today I have for you the only polish that I picked up from the China Glaze On Safari, I'm Not Lion. I've been super disappointed with China Glaze's collections lately, which is odd because they are usually my favorite brand. Nevertheless, I'm Not Lion is an AMAZING glitter polish that I think everyone should have in their stash! Definitely the standout in the collection for me.

I'm Not Lion is a cool-toned gold glitter with holo bits in it!! I just absolutely LOVE the color of this, it is not yellow-toned at all and is neutral enough to be worn by every skin tone. There is so much holo glitter in this that when you are looking at the bottle, you can see full rainbows like you would in legit holo polishes. It's just PACKED with the stuff! Another awesome thing about I'm Not Lion is that it is fully opaque in 2 coats! I love 2 coat glitters. Application was a breeze, it dried smooth with only one layer of topcoat and overall was just a dream to wear.

Here's 2 coats of China Glaze I'm Not Lion with top coat.






Thanks for stopping by today! Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday night!

  3. I hear you on school! I am only in 5 classes but after being out for years I am not thinking I made a good decision LOL, I feel totally brain dead already and really worried about when they all ramp up for mid terms. Thank goodness for the long weekend!

  7. Six classes is a heavy load for sure. I never took more than five I think, I am a wimp. I think it depends on the class, and you never know until you get in there.

    I would always envision myself in my graduation gown walking across the stage on those tough days.

    I wonder what you will wear for your manicure when you graduate?
