MAC Jade Dragon


Jade Dragon is from the MAC + Jin Soon Fall/Winter 2010 line that is Imperial China inspired. Hence the name of this polish, Jade Dragon. I only picked up three from this collection that debuted this past August. After success with my first MAC polish, I immediately stopped by my local MAC to check out the collection. I've only gotten to the chance to use this one out of the three I got, and I have to say I wasn't let down! See for yourself:



The first image is what it looks like majority of the time and the shimmer isn't as apparent. I'd say most of the time it is exactly like the second nail from the right. Dark evergreen with aqua shimmer. The shimmer isn't in your face sparkley, but you can see it more in the sun or if you stare really hard. This mani went on nicely with two coats. My only complaint about MAC polishes is that I get tipwear within two days whereas almost all other brands I don't see tipwear until day 4 or 5.

Let them have Polish! said...

This is really sophisticated. I like that it still looks green in normal lighting. I hate when dark Greens just look black unles thy are in sunlight. i like the toned down shimmer as well.

Lol I actually just tweeted two pictures of my nails and hands cause of the aweful staining from this polish. I'm afraid it has been the first and last time I've been using Jade Dragon :( A shame cause it's very pretty!

@ tasha.. not sure what Emerald Fitzgerald looks like, will have to check it out next time!

@ Iris I'm lucky this didn't stain my nails. But then again, they were already stained blue from another polish...

I was so excited about this when I saw it, I ran out tonight to see if my Macy's had it. I got the last bottle that was stashed in the bottom drawer. I can't wait to try it! :)
