China Glaze Plum and Purple Nail Polish Shades

China Glaze has a set of six great purple and plum nail lacquer shades. Below from left to right are:  Royal Tease, Coconut Kiss, and Flying Dragon. I liked the light frost to the first two shades. Flying Dragon is supposed to be a neon shade, but it came out oddly matte and a bit bumpy looking for me. I’m not sure what was up with that, since it looked fine in the bottle.

Below are three more shades: Evening Seduction, VIII, and Tempest. VIII and Evening Seduction are very similar deep hues, with Evening Seduction being more plum red and VII being more of a deep purple.

China Glaze polishes apply well and also wear quite well. I managed to keep mine chip free a bit longer than I do with some other brands. They retail for around $6.50 at salons and cosmetic stores. I have purchased China Glaze before at ULTA Beauty stores. China Glaze Plum and Purple Nail Polish Shades

  1. Flying Dragon dries matte and bumpy for everyone. It’s not just you. It’s the nature of neon pigments to dry matte. The Essie summer neons did the same thing. You have to wear a top coat to get it glossy.

    The bumpy texture is due to the glitter and that happens with a lot of glitter polishes. For some reason Flying Dragon took two coats of Seche Vite to avoid the texture issues but usually just one will suffice.

  2. Hi Michele! Thanks for that info! I hadn’t put a top coat on when I did those since I wasn’t doing a full manicure. I’ll have to remember that!
