China Glaze Snap My Dragon: Swatch and Review

Hello gentle readers.

China Glaze Snap My Dragon is my favorite of the Avant Garden Collection polishes. This hot, hot, hot pink jelly polish is packed with pink shimmer. I love this one so much.

This swatch is two coats and Seche Vite. Thanks to my camera, this polish came in pretty much DOA. It looks nothing like it does, in person. This polish is alive, shimmery, hot and fun. And, it doesn't show that VNL, either. I am just so frustrated and so sorry.

The formula on this polish is lovely. Smooth, silky and biddable. I didn't have any trouble with it, application was easy and there was no streaking, dragging, bald spots, bubbling or other nonsense. Dry time is really good.

Overall, I am a bit meh about the China Glaze Avant Garden Collection. It is comprised of pretty, wearable, fun colours. A few of the polishes have lovely formulas, the rest ranged from just okay to downright troublesome. I have never met a China Glaze season collection that was so widely inconsistent in quality. Look, I know that a collection can't always be twelve knock your eyes out different colours. I grok that not every customer is a rabid polish collector who hungers for new, new, new all of the time. But I do expect that a brand, like China Glaze with its stellar reputation for quality and consistency would continue to give that to their fans. They didn't deliver with this collection.

I have seen a lot of swatches of Hologlam and I am passing. Likewise on the new Summer neons collection. I am holding out hope, however that, as in years past, China Glaze pulls it together and hits it out of the park with their Autumn, Hallowe'en and Christmas collections. Those are usually my favorites of the year.

What did you think of the China Glaze Avant Garden Collection? Did you find it pretty but inconsistent as far as formula is concerned, as I did? I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Thank you for popping in and reading. Have a great day and may your polish never bubble.


  1. Pretty pink! I really like the name too :)

  2. The name is so cute! I'll have to check this out in person since it seems to be such a trouble maker to photograph! As for the whole collection, I feel a bit let down that the formulas leave a lot to be desired. I wish they had done some more summer glass flecks, since their last glass fleck collection was TDF!

  3. Snap My Dragon is worth checking out in person. You might find it on clearance at Sally's or elsewhere. I have seen it on Amazon, too. :) I hear you on their Summer glass flecks. I wish that they had skipped the neons altogether and gone for another knockout glass fleck collection. China Glaze does glass fleck like no one else. I hope that they bring some out, later, this year. :)

  12. I believe that settlements have been reached or are in the works but you may wish to search the blogs of the bloggers directly affected and see what they have to say. I don't think that I can state that yes or no, this issue has been settled for them. :)

  13. Thanks. I checked VV's, but maybe I didn't go back far enough.

  14. I remember seeing something some time back but to be perfectly honest, at the time I wasn't paying much attention.
