NOTD: China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy

China Glaze’s Flip Flop Fantasy has been on my wish list for a while now.  I was at Sally’s Beauty Supply picking up a new base coat because I finally finished my Seche Vite one and noticed that the China Glaze polishes were on sale for $4.99. I figured it was as good a time as any to finally pick this colour up.

This shade originally came out in 2010 as part of their Poolside collection and has been one of their bestsellers since.  CG doesn’t classify this colour as neon (it doesn’t say “neon” on the label like Pink Voltage does) but this is a retina-searing pink-coral colour.  Photos don’t do this colour justice, but it is bright.

I layered this colour over top of Orly’s Dayglow (a white colour) and then applied two coats of Flip Flop Fantasy over top.  For a base coat I used Beauty Secrets Base Coat and Poshe Top Coat on top.

I absolutely love this colour because it’s a gorgeous neon pink; not necessarily a hot pink, but more of a salmon.  I have tried this colour a few times before I bought it and depending on the bottle, I have had this colour look more neon, not sure if this is a formulation thing or what, but when I used a different bottle of this shade it was a lot brighter.

As for wearability, I got three days of this polish before some minor tip wear.  Application went on perfect, no streaks, but this could also be because of the way I applied it (look out for a blog post on nail polish application soon).

Oh, and happy 200 blog posts to me :).
