Welcome to another edition of "Sunday's Are For Swatching"! Today's swatches are brought to you by a new indie brand on the scene, Dragon Claw Polish...
Dragon Claw Polish is launching their brand with 3 collections starting November 7th. I received one of the collections to swatch and share with you, my lovely readers :) This grouping of four beauties is called "The Girls of Famous Asian", inspired by four of the girls that maker Janet works with at a restaurant she runs...
Dragon Claw Polish - Nessa
Nessa is described as a gorgeous, vampy, quiet person with a touch of flair!
This is a lavender chrome jelly with a nice mix of scattered holos that really sets the polish off. It is sheer when first applying, but with 2 coats opacity was easily achieved.
Dragon Claw Polish - Bren
Bren is describe as a hard working person. Like a great pair of denim jeans; she is reliable and can hold up to anything!
This is a sparkly, denim blue polish that was a dream to apply! It is packed with blue micro glitter that were a breeze to clean up in my "messy spots". Two coats shown.
Dragon Claw Polish - GEO
GEO is described as a smart, edgy, hard worker with a touch of glamorous attitude!
This polish is a mix of black stripe, gold square, gold hex and micro silver glitters in a clear base. I applied 2 coats over a white base. The glitter smoothed out very nicely when top coated (I will talk more about the top coat at the end of this review...)
Dragon Claw Polish - Bea
Bea is described as a happy and friendly person who gives off a positive and calming vibe :)
This polish is definitely my favorite of the four! It is a gorgeous cerulean blue with bright hex and micro holo glitter mixed in. This is anothe sheer jelly that built up beautifully in 3 thin coats. I had difficulty getting the bright hexes out with the brush. I had to do some fishing and glitter placement, but it was worth the effort because this polish is just so pretty!
Dragon Claw Polish - Diamond Claw Top Coat
Now I have to tell you about this top coat... Oh my word is it amazing!! I applied it over each polish that I swatched and it's probably one of the fastest drying top coats I've ever used (which is saying a lot since it took me about 2 years to find my staple top coat!). The very first time I applied it, I was in shock. By the time I got to painting my pinky nail, my thumb was already dry to the touch! Even more than that, the top coat passed my "3 minute rub test" where I rub my thumb 3 mins after application. There was no smudging. None! To top it all off, 10 mins after that I did the "smush/fingerprint test", and while some firm pressing did leave an imprint on my nail, before my eyes the imprint refilled itself like it was receiving a botox injection and went back to it's smooth and glossy state. Amazing!!
Over all I was pleasantly surprised by this new brand. I am so excited to see what happens in it's future!
As stated previously, these polish will be available for purchase HERE on November 7th along with the other 2 collections. You can follow Dragon Claw Polish on Facebook for updates and product news :)
Until next time!
