China Glaze Nail Polish Neon ~ Flying Dragon Swatches

Hey everyone, How are you all doing! I spotted this China Glaze neon Nail Polish, shade Flying Dragon in Sally Beauty. I loved the color and glitter mix and without any second thought bought it. It looks really pretty in the bottle but as you know sometimes pretty things can be deceiving! Flying dragon is a neon pinkish purple filled with blue and pink glitter shimmer. At least, it looks like so in the bottle. Below swatch is two coats of this polish. You can very well notice the difference, how it looks in the bottle and how it looks on nails.

The blue shimmer looks very prominent and shiny in the packaging. Sadly on nails, it just get mixed with the base purple color and loses its shine. I imagine how awesome it will look if the shimmers shines through!

  • Pigmentation: Flying Dragon has nice pigmentation though. All you need is two layers to get the opacity.
  • Formula: This polish looks shiny in the bottle but dries matte on the nails and kills all the shimmers. It dries pretty quick, I had to work fast on my nails.
  • Finish: This China Glaze shade is a matte finish polish. Not shiny as it looks in the bottle. The shimmers looks more like tiny flakes with no shine at all on nails.
  • Staying power: It’s not impressive in terms of longevity also. I had a layer of base coat polish underneath, still it chipped the next day.
  • Where to buy: You can buy China Glaze Polishes at ULTA, Sally Beauty and some Rite Aid stores carry China Glaze polishes. You can get it on China Glaze official website too. China Glaze polishes are available on Amazon or eBay too in various shades and with good deals. Sally Beauty has sample size china glaze polishes which is a nice way to try out different shades without spending much.

  1. T hank you for the review of China Glaze. As you stated the colors look great in the bottle – not so much on the nails. My go to is OPI. I will have to bookmark your page to return later.

    On polishes and art, have you ever used the peel off nail polish? If so, what are your thoughts?

    Thanks,

  2. Hi Demi great article on the China Glaze nail polish. I have a wife and 2 daughters so you can imagine how my household looks. I’m really interested in this particular nail polish because my oldest daughter loves pink and the way it turned out on your nails looks amazing. I’m sure my daughter will love to add this to her nail polish collection. Thank you for providing pictures to show how they look when applied to nails. Makes it that much easier to see how it turns out. Have a good day/night.

  3. Thanks for this!
    It is my daughters birthday soon, I just know she will love this!

    all the best
