Happy Chinese New Year!
January 23rd marks the first moon day of the new lunar year in 2012, which is said to be the 4,709th Chinese year. We have entered the Year of the Dragon. The dragon, is the most favored sign out of the twelve Chinese Zodiac animals. It's believed that people born on the year of the dragon are the luckiest people, showing character of strength , passion, intellect and fortune. I'm no dragon baby, neither anyone in my family, but we all still hold high hopes for the new lunar year.
The color of red in Chinese culture, and many other Asian culture as well, symbolizes good luck, happiness and joy. So to ring in the new lunar year, it was naturally fitting for me to choose Chanel's Dragon. The most perfectly eye-catching classic red crème...
Dragon is a universally flattering red for all skin tones. It doesn't lean blue, nor orange. It really is the absolute perfect red and will look beautiful on everyone. Shall we admire her some more?
The formula was spot on; very creamy and smooth. One coat produced an opaque finish, but I still used two.
Dragon was originally released in winter 2009, in the Rouge Allure Laque collection, and a limited edition color. At that time, I was not the nail polish collector that I am now, so I missed out on it. However, lucky for me, Chanel brought back the color and re-released Dragon just last year. I did not hesitate.
