I Will Be Myself Inspiration
This insanely gorgeous polish is inspired by "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte. The following is the full quote that Lindsay of Night Owl Lacquer got the name from:
“I am not an angel,' I asserted; 'and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself. Mr. Rochester, you must neither expect nor exact anything celestial of me - for you will not get it, any more than I shall get it of you: which I do not at all anticipate.”
I Will Be Myself Swatches
Maker description: a dark grey base with multichrome shimmer that shifts purple/burgundy/copper/gold, plus purple/red/gold ultra chrome chameleon flakes, gunmetal micro flakies and crystal chameleon flakes in purple/red/copper/gold.
2 coats + topcoat
Formula: Good formula. The first coat is sheer, but it builds up easily in just two coats. It does leave slight brushstrokes, so I recommend nice straight strokes, but they mostly dry down with topcoat.
My thoughts: I LOVE this murky, mysterious polish. You already know I love greys, but this one is really special and unique. The shift is very strong so you don't have to try hard at all to see the different colors. It can change completely depending on the lighting. Even just the bottle alone is really mesmerizing.
