I came across Flying Dragon by China Glaze in my stash, and decided it was a must try. In the bottle it’s a neon pink with blue and purple glitter. I had expected a pink, semi glittery satin finish polish. But on my nails, it came out as a purple satin with barely any hint of the glittery purple and blue.

I was disappointed in the color, but the formula was wonderful. Application was smooth and opaque in 2 coats. However, I wanted glittery nails, so I grabbed my Sinful Colors Frenzy and layered that over the Flying Dragon. Then I added a v shaped French tip in Wet N Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer, and dotted some neon pink by Sally’s onto the purple. The camera just refuses to capture the colors though. Makes the tips look blue, but I assure you they are purple!

Here is the bottle. See the pink? Yeah. Not pink on my nails at all.

And here are some shots of the final product. Not all that awesome, but okay for a day. I really need to start swatching my unused polishes so I don’t have to improvise and don’t encounter any surprise color deviation!

I do wish the camera would capture the purple tips. It seems to hate purples!

I think I may play with my light pink opal polish tonight. Time for some lighter colors and something a little less complicated. Or maybe I’ll do some gray striping. What do you think?

Happy Polishing!
