NOTD - China Glaze Flip Flop FantasySunday, May 15, 2016
Today I have another NOTD (nail of the day) post for you and today's NOTD is inspired by the recent sunshine and warmer weather we have had in the UK. China Glazes' Flip Flop Fantasy is the perfect spring/summer shade, it is a bright neon coral shade and when I say bright, I mean bright, but it looks lovely and is one of my favourite spring/summer nail polishes.
I used 3 coats of Flip Flop Fantasy, allowing each coat to dry fully in between and once fully dry, I added 1 coat of my holy grail top coat, the Orly Glosser top coat.
The finish of Flip Flop Fantasy is a matte/satin finish, it isn't quite matte but it isn't quite satin either, I would describe it as matte with a hint of satin, I do like my nails glossy though so I always use a glossy top coat so I have a nice shine to my nails.
As you can see, it is a very bright polish but I really like it, it looks nice against my pale skin but also looks incredible when I am tanned and I think it would suit any skin tone, it's a lovely polish for both fingers and toes and perfect for sunny days and holidays.
I adore China Glaze polishes, they have an amazing shade range and bring out the most spectacular collections but my only negative is that they chip easily, I cannot get more than 2 days from a China Glaze polish on my fingers and considering I don't use my hands much at all and I speak all my blog posts, emails and text messages using voice dictation, so it's not brilliant. I do love their polishes so it doesn't put me off at all and I have re purchased many shades including Flip Flop Fantasy. The China Glaze polishes do last longer on my toes, don't you find toe polish always lasts a while longer than on fingers? But my fingers are usually chipped within 24 hours unfortunately, if you can cope with the easy chipping you may experience, then I would highly recommend checking out China Glaze polishes if you haven't already and in particular, Flip Flop Fantasy, it's very bright and not for the faint hearted but it is stunning for the spring/summer, now wheres that sun?!
If you would like to try Flip Flop Fantasy by China Glaze, you can find it on the Nail Polish Direct website HERE for £3.95 including free UK delivery, I always buy my China Glaze polishes from Nail Polish Direct, plus other polishes, they are a brilliant company and I haven't ever had any problems when ordering from them.
If you would like to try my holy grail top coat, the Orly Glosser top coat, you can find it on the Look Fantastic website HERE for £11.10 including free UK delivery, please don't let the price put you off, a bottle lasts me and my daughters well over 18 months and there is a massive 18ml of product in the bottle, it's incredible.
Have you tried Flip Flop Fantasy or any other China Glaze polishes? Do you have any spring/summer polish recommendations for me?
Thank you for reading, much love as always
