Awhile ago I received a package from Janet from Dragon Claw Polish. She launched her Holo Palooza Collection – and I was given Black Sabbath and Red Hot Chilli Peppers to swatch!
Dragon Claw Polish
Both polishes are holographic ones, packed with soooo many rainbow glitters! Spell PRETTY. I was so impressed with the shimmer in the bottle and just couldn’t wait to try it out. Especially the Black Sabbath – you guys know how much I like black polishes!
First, let’s talk about Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Here is 3 coats of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, a rich berry-red shade. This polish is not 100% opaque so it requires some build up. Personally, I felt that when it went onto the second or third coat, you may experience some unevenness on your nail, which requires very careful painting. The dry time was average.
For this polish, I find that the holographic glitters were strangely muted when painted, although they were so sparkly in the bottle.
I topped it off with 1 coat of Seche Vite, which is not quite enough. As you can see, the polish dries to a semi-matte finish. I was not smart enough to think of painting on 2 coats then, so I left it as matte. I really fancy my polish glossy though!
Black Sabbath is a sheer black holographic jelly polish. Fairly nice build up with 3 coats compared to Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The holographic glitters showed nicely on the black polish, like shimmery stars in the sky.
This also dried semi-matte, so a top coat is mandatory. Here, I topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite for the high gloss, after the first lesson learnt!
Dragon Claw Polish is an artisan, hand-crafted polish, which boasts a 5-free formula. That is fantastic! Currently, I think most indies are still 3-free. Not many are 5-free. Each bottle of Janet’s Holo Palooza Collection retails at USD$7.95, which makes it around SGD$10.80. Shipping is USD$11.95 (approx SGD$16) which is a bit costly, but if you are keen, do shop together with your besties to save on shipping costs!
