Femme Fatale ~ Dragonscale - Lots of pics!

Femme Fatale ~ Dragonscale
White base with a golden green shine and golden flecks

Dragonscale is an effect polish, which means it’s meant for layering. I wasn’t in the mood for layering over black, and I knew that this would look the best over a dark base. I chose to use a P2 Color Victim polish as my base, namely “Blue’s Brothers”, which is a marine blue and very squishy looking. I’ll show you how that looks on its own later on – because this post is about the Dragonscale.

I cut striping tape into little pieces and applied them to my nails, and then I painted one coat of Dragonscale over it. I removed the tape immediately after having applied the layer of polish. Here’s the result:

I deliberately made the stripes different in length to achieve a cool look.

Here it is from a different angle:

The flecks makes this polish spectacular, I really like the shimmer it has, and the name fits it just perfectly!

It’s amazing what good coverage Dragonscale has. This is just one coat over a very dark blue:

The polish is a colour shifter. It shifts between green and purple, even though green is definitely the prominent colour. This angle shows a bit of the purple:

Femme Fatale writes about Dragonscale:
It is also the nail polish version of our Golden Peridot eye shadow! 

In that case I’d love to get my hands on that eyeshadow too! I can only imagine how pretty that is.

Here's a bonus picture I took in my local DVD store. I'm holding a Simpson's movie:

It's amazing how the green holo of the box makes the polish change its colour too! 

Here's another thing I did with this polish:

I took a dark green polish, L. A. Girls Metallic "Deep Sea Mica", and applied two coats as my base colour. After having let that dry, I applied one coat of Dragonscale, and before it dried, I dapped it with a kitchen sponge to remove some of the effect polish.

Pretty cool, don't you think?? This polish has heaps of options in it!

So - what do you think of effect polishes like this one? I know I like them!

  1. I really like the designs, but the second one has to be my favourite by far! Very cool xx

    1. There are so many possibilities with polishes like this one - I guess the imagination is the limit. I'm glad you like them :)

  2. Such a gorgeous polish, and I love your creativity with it! :D

    1. Thank you :) I actually got more ideas for this baby :D

  3. I love this kind of polish - so many ways to use it - both mani's are beautiful, but i kind of see a dragon in the last one LOL

    1. That's so true, the second one is more dragon-ish. That's how I came up with it too :D

  4. Both designs are really cool, and I especially love the first one! You did a great job showcasing Dragonscale! :D
