China Glaze - Flying Dragon

| |

A break from all the blues I wore last weeks :D

This is the famous "Flying Dragon" by China Glaze, a shade as beautiful as tricky is its application:

(direct sun)

These are two coats with some touch-ups here ad there to cover balder areas, but its formula, based on neon pigments, makes this nailpolish a little bastard :D

It dries the very next second the brush leaves your nail surface, so you have to apply this faster than light, but in a homogeneous way, otherwise any error will be visible.
It was the second time I wore this shade, and I didn't remember it was that tricky, for me at least.

Being a neon shade (but it's dark!), it dries quickly and matte, like this:

Top coat brings out all the blue and pink glitters, but since they are almost non-sparkly (strange thing!), they aren't visible more far than from a close look...
In my opinion, it needs two coats of top coat in order to obtain a perfectly smooth and shiny surface, because with just one coat nails are a little rough:

(daylight)

But I'm planning to layer something else over it, so I decided not to weigh nails down :>


Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)

Celo! Questo è proprio bastardello, sia da applicare (io di mani ne ho date tre) che da fotografare...Però è bello da morire <3
Domani mattina (ora sono in "chiusura pc" visto che NON sono ancora in ferie) ti rispondo!

hermetic, in fact I don't care about application, if colour is awesome :D

marox would you wear it? :>

Charlotte, this is a must-have!

Cristina, finché è nela collezione permanente, hai tutto il tempo!

maisenzasmalto, meglio una formula un po' "così" che un colore poco interessante :D

sabbatha, I think it peels a little faster than others, but maybe we can try adding a layer of top coat? :^/

Ciao Elisa, un grazie enorme a te e complimenti per il tuo blog, ho dato una prima occhiata, ma tornerò con calma appena potrò ;>
