A Fantasy in Magenta: Pretty Jelly Dragon Breath

Hey everybody!  How are you like my Pretty Jelly holo features this week?  As much as I love wearing them, I love taking pictures of them even more.  They are so perfect that they make it easy to get a good one. :)  I saved for last a smokin' hot pink linear lovely called Dragon Breath. 


Um.  Wow.  Fire in the house!!  That is some HOT magenta going on there.  And look at all the blue shimmer in that color shift.  It nearly blew out my lens due to the insane sparkle.  It's hard to imagine that Dragon Breath is yet another well-behaved and office-friendly polish, but it is.  It looks like a harmless metallic until you turn your hand near a spotlight...and BAM.  They'll be calling you "Vegas" before you clock out.


Named for the Dragon's Breath opal, Dragon Breath pulls really blue on me, which I love.  It's a delicious hybrid of raspberry jam and a lava lamp.  Hmmm...that doesn't sound delicious, but trust me, it's crazy gorgeous.  Click on the photo for a closer look.  Go ahead.  Are you sitting down? :P  I used 2 coats of Dragon Breath for photos.  This baby is super pigmented, and Mr. VaNeLi was nowhere to be seen! :)


And last, but not least, Dragon Breath has my VERY favorite quality in a polish:  it makes me look even whiter!  YESSSS!!

So...I really hope I've helped convince you that you need some Pretty Jelly in your life.  And I have to tell you what a sweet young lady creator Liz is...I sent my dear friend Emily of Must.Stash some Pretty Jelly for her birthday, and LOOK and how Miss Liz packaged it up...proof positive she's an amazing artist. <3


You can purchase Pretty Jelly polishes at Etsy, and Liz is having a restock tomorrow! :)

As always, thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!

  6. Dragon's Breath is amazing and doesn't look at all how I would envision a dragon's breath ( I say it like it's a realistic and nonplural thing, haha!! ) to look like ;-) I love magenta hues too and you can't get better than a holo one at that!! Oooh and Liesl is right, I did see your pretty fingers on over at her Etsy page, congratulations and I hope to see more of your swatches around over there!!

  7. How gorgeous is this! You did a stunning job of capturing the holo. You know, even though I love seeing holos on others, I just don't wear that much of it myself... and I have no idea why. I must change that! :)
