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.
