I’m Not Lion

A lovely reader, Tishana, requested I’m Not Lion from the China Glaze On Safari collection, so here it is!  It’s soooo sparkly!

I’m Not Lion is a mix of gold, silver, and holo glitter in a clear base.  All together, it just looks like champagne.  I actually have a hard time finding golds that work well with my skin tone, since I have both pink and yellow undertones and am super pale, but I really liked this one!  I know it’s a fall collection, but I think I’m Not Lion will be perfect for the holidays.

The glitter is super dense in this one.  I got great coverage with two coats, but added a third since close up pictures show gaps in the glitter more.  In real life, two should be plenty.  This is definitely not a layering glitter, but it might work for gradients.

The color of this one changes in different lighting, and the next picture shows how it can look more cool toned, with almost a greenish tinge.  I really like this one either way.  It’s definitely one my my favorite solid glitters, right after CG Some Like it Haute.  You guys know I’m not big on glitter, but CG makes some gorgeous ones!

I think I’m just going to swatch the entire CG On Safari collection before moving on, what do you guys think?  I might try to do some nail art using these colors soon.  But I am taking requests for which On Safari polish you want to see next, so let me know in the comments!
