Hi everyone! I’m back with the second installment of Geekish Glitter Lacquer’s Zodiac Series. She started this series last month with ‘The Crab’ for the month of Cancer and you only have until July 22 to get your hands on last month’s polish! On July 22 The Crab will go away forever but The Lion will make it’s debut on July 23, 2018.
You can check out Geekish Glitter Lacquer’s website HERE. This polish was sent to me to swatch and give an honest review. I have a lot of photos today!
The Lion is inspired by the Zodiac Sign of Leo. If your birthday falls between July 23 and August 22 you are a Leo. Leos are ruled by the Fire element. Their strengths include being a leader, being brave, charismatic, generous, protective, playful and creative. Their weaknesses include being arrogant, stubborn, vain, controlling and a show off.
Lexi came up with two polishes for the month of Leo, The Lion and Fire (which is a red glow in the dark topper!). I should have Fire in a few days to share with you, but today we will look at The Lion. This polish will only be available for sale for the month of the Zodiac sign. So for Leo you can purchase this polish from July 23 through August 22 at geekishglitterlacquer.bigcartel.com.
The Lion is described by the maker as, “a mustard yellow base with gold-yellow-red chameleon shimmer, copper sparks, and crystal chameleon orange-gold shifting flakes”. Oh boy! So many color descriptors came to my mind as I was applying and wearing this polish: butterscotch, copper, dijon (or dark) mustard, caramel. It really looked like all of those (plus more!) at one time or another. The polish really does the inspiration justice. I think this is a great interpretation for Leo, The Lion!!
The formula was beyond excellent! The polish glides on easily and stays right where you paint it. There is no running or pooling. If you have short nails, one coat may be enough! I used two coats plus topcoat. I will give a warning to double up on basecoat. I had a small amount of staining on my nails when I took this off. It wasn’t horrible at all but I did want to mention it.
I wore this polish for two days, I really loved it!

So what do you think? I think this polish looks so much like a mighty Lion’s mane! Lexi really nailed this one!
