Gorgeous Glitter - I'm Not Lion!

  Today I want to share with you my selection from the China Glaze Safari collection from last fall.  While I really liked quite a few of the polishes from the collection, I really had to limit myself to just one when it came out.  It was a tough choice, but in the end I am super pleased with the one I picked out!

  China Glaze I'm Not Lion! is a light gold glitter packed with holographic glitter bits.  I was drawn to this one because the color is neutral enough that when I need a more subtle look for work I can get away with it, but get it in the bright light and it comes to life!  I wore this around the hospital for about a week last fall and got quite a few compliments on it.  Application is fairly smooth, although it does take three coats to build to opacity.  Here is a fuzzy shot for you to really see that holo shine!

  In low light the polish it a bit more tamed, but still really pretty.  Enough of the holo still peeks out to give it a glowing look.


  This is a great polish, perfect for any time of the year and just about any occasion.  I'm very glad I chose to add it to my collection!

  5. Got it... haven't worn it yet... It's tough making decisions on what to wear n swatch for my blog because I have too many polishes to choose from that I haven't worn yet & keep getting more... LOL How do you decide? Is it just what you feel like wearing at that time? Please share... Thanks!

    1. For the most part, it is what I am in the mood for! I always prioritize polishes that I have been sent for review and make sure to get those swatched/worn. Sometimes if it is a newer polish or I feel like I haven't seen good swatches yet I will try to get them done sooner... But otherwise I mostly wear what I want, and what works with work, if that is a concern at the time. I have the same problem of not getting to a polish, then getting more and never getting around to wearing one... So I still have many untried shades as well! I've become much more selective about what I buy though, and inning to really focus on whether it is really unique and if I think I will really wear it.

      Of course, some of my favorite shades I have worn several times. :)
