China Glaze Flying Dragon

I still don't know how I feel about this...

China Glaze Flying Dragon
This is a lot "Grapier"
This color was a biatch to photograph.
Sun + Flash

Sequins and I do not agree!
  "Flying Dragon" is a neon Purple base with matching Purple glitter and some random Blue glitter. I must say the glitter is so unnecessary, it doesn't even sparkle in Sunlight and the effect is so muddied. The base color itself is not awful, it's just a standard bright Purple. The formula was your standard neon formula, thin and uneven. For this mani I used Three coats of color. This color dries hideous, VERY gritty! I needed two coats of INM Out the Door to smooth it out and give it shine and the Third coat I added after the stamping didn't hurt it... So yeah... I'm on the fence about this color; I don't love it and I don't hate it...

What do you guys think of "Flying Dragon"?

Sequin FAIL


  Don't you just hate it when an idea in your head doesn't translate to your nails? Well I had some of that going on when I was working on this manicure.

Zoya "Stacy"
Artificial Light
  So first I feel like I need to apologize for the sloppy application I'm not very good with dark vampy colors.  Application was pretty good and I only needed two coats for full opacity. The formula on this was a little thinner than the other two Zoya polishes I have worked with (posts here and here). While my original idea was to emulate fish scales on my ring finger.. Well you can see how that worked out. I realized my nail was too small so I just went where it took me and well... I'll let you guys be the judges hahaha :)

Thanks for reading :)
