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).

i love the shimmers in this collection. i’m currently wearing “i’m not lion” and all the sparkle is just making me smile! for a really big wow effect you can layer the other colors from the collection underneath

“i’m not lion” on top of “kalahari kiss”
and
“i herd that” on top of “desert sun”

yes and no on this one for me. I like an opaque glitter that is not so rough that it’s like having rocks on my fingers..but this one is a tish too Christmas looking to me..the little bits of red glitter in it that might really be rust but look red against the gold are over taking my eyeballs on my bottle of this. Right now also not into opaque glitters so I thin mine down in a little thinner with this and thinner mixed on a piece of foil – then sponge on top of another base shade – it’s pretty over Desert Sun in this same collection – but having it opaque covers up too much of the Desert Sun…thus need to thin it down.

I love both the glitters from this collection for layering. The other day I painted my toenails with Dior Gris Montagne which I have worn many time on my fingernails and it is a favourite, but it just didn’t work on my toes at all. It’s a darkish grey and it just made my feet look so ugly and kinda dirty looking. So rather than start all over again, I added a layer of I’m not Lion and now my toes look fabulous!
