Avoidance is futile

I saw how pretty China Glaze Flying Dragon was, I was told how gorgeous it was, but I just didn't realize it until I bought my own bottle and swatched it.....Gorgeous!

Here it is 2 coats, but I should have done 3 coats (there is VNL), I was impatient once I saw how pretty it was.
















When I had my "purple giveaway", I asked what your favorite purple polish was, and over 50% responded that this was your favorite......now I know why!















It has great blue and pink glitter in a neon purple base, it is thinner than I thought but still pretty..  It dries matte, but with a top coat it looks fabulous!















This bright tones in this polish really sent my camera into a tail spin!













Here is a pic without top coat, where you can see the glitter a little better. 

The polish dries matte and is a tiny bit bumpy, but a top coat takes that all away :)















This is too pretty to avoid...so if you are avoiding this polish like I have been, DON'T..just get it...it's worth it :)
Pin It!

No, don't get it. It is streaky and patchy and bumpy and it will not look as good as you hope!
Sorry, but I HATED it.
;o)
It was one of my biggest disappointment-polishes ever!

hmmm... weird, I've got it too, but it wasn't streaky at all... I painted it, put a topcoat on and wasn't impressed and there we go again, changed to another polish ^^

I've had no problems with this polish other than the bumpiness but top coat clears that up. Hm I didn't have any streaks. :X

@ Everyone- I wonder if there are production differences in this polish. Ive heard comments all across the board.

I love varying opinions, keep'em coming ladies :)

This is one of my favorites. I love the different color glitters in this one. However I'm so confused by it too. My version seems to be more on the blue-violet side. I went to Sally's today and saw a bunch of these that matched more on the side of your bottle a brighter more purple-red? I'm guessing people are right about the production differences. I think I want to go purchase the other one now just to compare!

@ StardustStephanie- Alzarine Claws was asking about this same thing. I heard there are two versions of this, but Ive only seen one (mine), so please do a comparison and email when you've done it, I'd love to see it. :)
