New To Me Indie: Dragon Claw Polish - Toys Everywhere! Collection

Today I have posts from an indie company so new that the store isn't even open yet! Pre-orders from Dragon Claw Polish will begin on November 7th - but you can see swatching of one of the three premier collections right here and right now!

I was sent the 5 piece collection called Toys Everywhere! which is inspired by maker Janet's 7 children and her busy, happy, toy-filled home.  I am going to show you 4 of the 5 polishes today (which Janet tweaks the 5th a little bit). There are a couple knockout polishes in this collection so let's get to the pics!

Group shot:

First up, this is Chewy Rainbow Bands, a neon pink jelly with assorted rainbow glitters.  This polish is inspired by Janet's daughter who loves her Rainbow Loom...and her baby, who finds the discarded bands, LOL.  I used three coats alone for these swatches, with topcoat.

The jelly is squishy, sheer, and bright, everything you look for in a jelly.  The rainbow glitters come out of the polish easily.  Dry time is longer than a creme, but it's a jelly, so you already knew that!

I wanted to see this over a solid hot pink, so I put two coats over Nire's Desire unnamed pink creme.  I love how the neon glitters stand out on top of the pink. This is one bright mani!

Next, this polish is Crayons On My Wall, a delicate lilac that seems to change color to silver in certain lights.  It has a slight holo to it, too.  This is three thin coats with topcoat. The polish applies well and dries quickly. Nice!

The inspiration comes from the drawings and artwork that Janet saves and pins up on the wall.

The third polish I have to show you is called DonaRaphLeoAngelo, and I am sure you can figure out the inspiration for this one! This color shifter slides from maroon, green, silver, and even a blue in certain lights. I did three coats and topcoat for these swatches.  The formula is great, zero issues!

Last but not least, this is the standout of the collection, in my opinion, and my favorite, by far. Red Bouncy Ball is a squishy red jelly with a gorgeous gold shimmer.  I did three coats and topcoat for these swatches. The formula is excellent and it dried surprisingly quickly!

The inspiration comes from a favorite toy in Janet's house, which is red and lights up. The shimmer captures the inspiration perfectly!

Like the other jelly, I wanted to swatch this over a solid to capture the jelly and the sparkle. I used Orly Sweet Tart, which, to my surprise, is a jelly, too. I know this would look even more vibrant over a red creme but I had committed to this color, LOL.  Loove how vibrant this is over a solid red. This baby went on my Favorites shelf so I know to grab it again soon!

Remember, pre-order starts November 7th! My fave, by far, is Red Bouncy Ball. The shimmer is gorgeous, the jelly consistency is squishy and perfect, and this is just lovely for the upcoming holidays.

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
