Crowstoes ~ Dragon in Drag


Crowstoes ~ Dragon in Drag
Clear base with multisized glitters in green, teal and purple

Today is the 13th of December – Christmas is close now! Are you looking forward to it? I know I am!

Today I will show you Crowstoes Dragon in Drag, which is from the Better Late than Never-collection from Autumn 2013, and it’s a clear base with different colours of green glitter, and an accent of purple.

I spent quite a lot of time trying to decide what to layer this pretty glitter over. If I layered it over purple, the purple glitters would drown. If I layered it over green, it would be the green glitters that didn’t “show themselves” properly. I didn’t want to layer it over black – that’s not my style – I like my glitters better over a real colour. All of a sudden it struck me: A dark green glittery beauty from China Glaze’s holiday collection Let It Snow from 2011: Glittering Garland. I’ll show you later why this beauty was the perfect underwear for my Dragon in Drag!

The glitter was pretty easy to work with. I dabbed is around a little bit, but it wasn’t a big deal to spread it out. Drying time is pretty average.

Let me show you what I’m talking about. Here’s one coat of glitter layered over Glittering Garland. There’s also a layer of topcoat over it:


If that isn’t beautiful then I don’t know what is.


You know how I wear my glitters: One dip in the bottle per nail – that’s how I like it. So you can see that this pretty dragon is packed with glitter!


Purple and green go really well together, I think. To begin with I wasn’t crazy about chunky glitters, but that opinion has definitely changed. I love this!


One last shot of my pretty dragon:


Glittering Garland turned out to be pretty much the perfect underwear. It’s a tiny green glitter in a deep blackened green jelly base. Application was really easy, drying time was good, and it took two coats to make it look just great. Take a look – two coats, no topcoat:


I’m really happy to enrol Dragon in Drag in my collection. I have a soft spot for dragons and for glitters obvious. I love both teal and purple – so this is an absolute winner in my book!

What say you, girls?
