This was my first exposure to St. George and the Dragon when I was a child:

The descriptions for the all the polishes were provided by Eugenia Ragas of ommorphia beauty bar. Dragon is described thusly: "Like sunlight glinting off his iridescent mossy green scales, the fearsome Dragon lays basking arrogantly, awaiting his due." Given that Dragon is a holographic polish, this is a pretty apt description, and you'll be able to see this in my photos below, I hope! The formula on Dragon was excellent, though I would recommend not overloading your brush because you can end up with pigment streaks. Dragon is pretty much a one coater, but I used two to make sure I had complete coverage.
Luckily there was some sun today (after a really weird snow shower in parts of Seattle this morning), so I have a ton of pictures of Dragon in the sunlight because it's so so pretty!

You lose the holo effect in the shade, but Dragon is still a great shade of green.

This is a stunning polish, isn't it? Even though this isn't a coveted linear holo, the scattered holo effect is gorgeous and wonderful. I love the rainbow of colors that show up in the green base. To me, I am reminded of a lizard's skin, which is probably the idea. I mean, what else can I say? This polish is awesome and beautiful.
My first real exposure to dragons was through the late, great Anne McCaffrey and her Dragonriders of Pern series. I wanted to show you this beautiful piece of artwork by Michael Whelan because his artwork was an intimate influence in how I imagined dragons and this particular piece (from the cover of Dragonflight) seems to be capture by this polish, even though that wasn't the intention:
