NOTD: China Glaze Flying Dragon

7:36 PM Posted In , , Edit This 11 Comments »
I had read a lot of reviews on this np on MUA, and it was kinda mixed. A lot of ladies said that it wasn't anything very special, while others disagreed.

I decided to get it myself and try it out. Well I didn't really love it. It looks great close-up, but from a normal distance it just looks like a purple. It's not neon at all. It does have red and blue glitter specks in it, but you can't tell from a normal distance.

So I decided to give this to one of my co-workers b/c she loves purple. I only reached for this b/c I couldn't find Fiji quickly to liven up my mani from the other day. So I give you one coat of China Glaze Flying Dragon over 4 coats of Sinful Colors Fiji :)

Compact Flourescent


Same as above, enhanced to show the blue and red glitter
Regular bulb
This is a more accurate pic of what the color really looks like.



What do you ladies think? Have you tried it? Do you love it?

Yeah, I was a bit "meh" about it, too. And the matte finish is awful1 I definitely wouldn't wear it without a top coat...

Nessa said...

Def agree :) The lady I gave it to loved it, so I'm glad someone can enjoy it!

I liked it! A lot of people seem to be dissatisfied with it though. Ho did you get your second batch of pictures to look like a true purple? I had a really awful time attempting to photograph so I gave up!

I just took a pic under a regular bulb. It was a clear, tube one that you can put little lamp shades on. I don't remember what they're called though. :(

Love it on you! Have yet to try it myself

Nessa said...

Thanks, Steph. I hope you like it more than I do! :)

I think it looks very pretty! It's seems to be opaque in only one coat?

Pixie said...

I am one of the people who love it :) It's a pain to remove though.

Nessa said...

Vanessa- It was pretty much opaque in one coat, but I did put it over another purple that I was wearing just to 'spice it up'!
Pixie- Yes I just found that out! You don't really realize how many sparkles are in there until you remove it!

Lol, can you believe I just gave in to a strong urge to put this one on(before I read this XD)?

I want to see what it looks like on a sunny day, something I haven't been able to see since I bought this in rainy December and only wore it once.

Too bad it's 7 p.m. here, I'll have to wait till morning.

I also wanted to thank you for the award nomination! *huggles*
You will surely be on my list once I get around to doing it ;).

Oh, thanks, Flavia! I hope you like it! OOoo another award! You are too kind!
