I picked up Dragon Berry at Sally’s. It’s part of Nina Ultra Pro’s new(ish) Spring 2010 Hard Candies collection. After the fail that was Soursop I was worried Dragon Berry was also going to let me down. Fortunately, I was wrong 🙂
Dragon Berry is a gorgeous pink leaning purple packed with microglitter. It really sparkles in the sun. The application was great. Not at all streaky, and opaque in just two thin coats.
I was also impressed by the wear of this polish. I only have 2 other Nina Ultra Pro polishes in my stash. Soursop was so thin I didn’t wear it long, and Punki Purple is a neon, so the wear time is short. Dragon Berry wore for days with no chips using my normal base coat and Essie Good to Go! top coat.
The inconsistency of this collection concerns me. But all the colors are gorgeous (well, with the exception of the green that reminds me of Maybelline Go Go Green). I will probably end up picking up one or two more polishes from this collection. They’re just so sparkly, and less than $4!
I was talking to Katie about this, but I really dont’ follow the names of these polishes in a collection called “Hard Candies.” All of the polish names are fruit. I understand there can be fruit flavored candy, but I still find it odd. Who has even had a soursop flavored hard candy? Especially one that was blue!? Maybe I’m just missing something, but the names to seem somewhat out of place to me.
Anyways, I hope everyone enjoys their Friday!
