China Glaze I Herd That Nail Lacquer
China Glaze I Herd That Nail Lacquer

Copper Glitter? I Herd That!

China Glaze I Herd That Nail Lacquer ($3.00 to $7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “brilliant copper glitter.” It’s a mix of light gold, copper gold, and copper glitter in what appears to be a mostly clear base. It’s that mix of colors that makes it different from other gold polishes that I’ve reviewed before. For a similar “feel,” you might consider SpaRitual Solstice, which is a molten gold with chunky glitter/sparkle. China Glaze Electrify isn’t as opaque and has much larger pieces of glitter, but it has a similar feel–again because it is a mix of gold and red glitter.

I was really excited to see that this was mostly opaque after two coats.  It’s always a fun time when you find an opaque glitter–then it’s even more versatile, because you can use it for layering or on its own (and without having to use five coats!).  There’s a very faint sheerness that’s there but hardly noticeable, but it’s something I still had to mention.  The texture wasn’t too thick or too thin, and the glitter distributed evenly.  The drying time was average.  I usually get a week of wear out of China Glaze’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.  The polish retails for $7, but you can find it at various e-tailers for under $4 (the one linked in the post sells this shade for $3).

It's always a fun time when you find an opaque glitter--then it's even more versatile, because you can use it for layering or on its own (and without having to use five coats!). This is a nice transitioning shade--bright enough for summer but inspired by the tones of autumn.
