Another glitter worth wearing

China Glaze - Flying Dragon NEON

I've been in a purple-y kind of mood lately and China Glaze's Flying Dragon (neon) was right up my alley. It has some glitter in it, but it's small and will easily smooth out with Seche Vite or other thick top coat.

I have top coat with most of the pic's except for the last ones, which you will notice an obvious difference.

As with most purples, this color has many camera faces.  This is the flash version ...

... but so is this.  I think the flash was not as direct.

This is the indirect sunlight version.

Awwww, I have a boo boo on my pinky.

Even more indirect light.

Indoors in fluorescent light.

mmmkay, so it's obviously hard to capture.

Here is a side by side of before and after top coat on the flying dragon. As with all neon's this is expected and pretty "cool" in it's own way ... that has been confirmed by my hubby. 

Is there some mythical flying dragon I don't know about that this polish name comes from. Someone please enlighten me.

  1. gorgeous swatch! i loved this one so much i paid full price for it :)

  2. Yum! This looks really nice! It's one of the more unique purple polishes that I've seen, definately.

  3. This one is on my list to purchase. Very Pretty. Love the purples!!!

  4. Oh man, this looks awesome! Purple is never wrong! :D

  5. What? I was just shopping at the China Glaze stand at Sally's and I didn't pick this one up! What is wrong with me?

  6. reminds me of my fave Creative polish "American Pie" minus the sparkle. I never cared for China Glaze but I'm gonna look for this!

  7. You probably know this by now, but just in case.. this polish was part of the Inked collection. It was tattoo inspired with names like Sacred Heart, Japanese Koi, Celtic Sun and Blue Sparrow. All are tattoos that are sortof cliche or traditional. Anyway, I love your blog; I can't believe I just discovered it!

  8. Thanks Arica!!! Actually I have to admit I am pretty bad when it comes to knowing what polish goes with what collection so thank you! I just buy what I like. I loved the history lesson though, yay! and it actually makes sense :D Come back anytime my friend! :)
