Swatch of China Glaze Flying Dragon

I have a quick swatch post to share with you today! This lovely is China Glaze Flying Dragon, which is one of those polishes I knew by name but never bothered to pick up for myself until recently.

If I was naming it I would have gone with something different I think, though... Something with the word raspberry in it maybe? Flying Raspberry? The Raspberry Dragon? Maybe it's a good thing I'm not the one naming polishes haha.

Swatch of China Glaze Flying Dragon

Flying Dragon has been out for a while but seems to have some solid staying power as it's still available today. It originally came out in the Ink Collection in 2008 if you can believe it! The formula may have gone through a remix in the past few years though... More on that in a post I have coming up for you next week. ;)

I would call this a vibrant purple-leaning pink crelly, and as you can see above it's liberally scattered with blue and magenta glitter. It took three coats to build up and as it is in the neon family it did originally dry matte. I have two coats of top coat here to smooth it all down and really show off the colour.

Overall I think it's a lovely colour and the glitter really adds something extra. :) I think it'll be a good pedi colour for summer, too!

Is this a shade you would rock? Or one you already own? Let me know! 

Thanks for visiting! xx

  5. I was so excited to buy this, but I think I got a wonky bottle because mine was a gritty MESS, but all the photos I see look like yours! I'll have to buy another bottle
