China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy

 This is a definite case of ‘blogger made me do it’ but better still.. Laura (buynowbloglater) only had to say she WANTED this and I needed it. I believe she was reviewing the new Models Own polishes for tans and mentioned the elusive ‘Flip Flop Fantasy’ from China Glaze and how one day she would find it in stock blah blah. I immediately took to my number one nail polish resource – link – found it to be out of stock (as predicted) but signed up for a stock notification. Two weeks later it was mine. I love a good shopping story, don’t you? Funny thing is that when I notified Laura of the new stock my tweet inspired not one but 2 (that I know of) others to pick it up too.. the power of blogging in the world of buying is immense. That desperate ‘must have’ feeling generated by the idea you wont be able to get your hands on something because it’s not available or heaven forbid.. LIMITED EDITION makes you buy things you would never normally have bought. As luck would have it this is actually a great colour but you know what I mean.. shopping panic usually doesn’t lead to anywhere but regret.

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy 2

As with the other neons I own from China Glaze (I picked up some more along with this one so there will be more uber brights coming your way soon) this has that lit from within, white base coat look to it. It dries quickly but needs a good topcoat not only for chip resistancy but for shine as the finish alone is satin at best. I don’t find them to be the world best formula but China Glaze make some absolutely amazing colours and this is definitely one of them.

    Such a beautiful shade! I love orange-corals and this would look amazing with tan! I’m going to a wedding this month and want a dress the same colour. I may have to match up and invest in this too!, x

    You think that’s a bad “bloggers made me do it” story… On Friday I was watching an old haul you did from Forever 21 so paused you video to go have a look as I hadn’t been on their website, ended up buying a bunch of things but then I had the shopping bug so one thing led to another and over the course of the weekend I shopped online at Forever 21, ASOS and H&M and found myself almost Β£200 worse off!!! All because I had to buy the items then and there to either get the discount or because I was worried they wouldn’t be in stock if I came back in a couple of weeks time…. Serious buyers remorse!! Need to put myself on a spending ban I think!!

    I absolutely love love loveeee China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy and it is an avid favourite for when i go on holiday. Last week i picked up Models Own ‘Shades’ from their Polish for tans collection and they could be sister shades! I have it on at the moment for my up coming vacation and i’m hoping it’ll make me look tanner haha πŸ˜€

    Fab colour, is it a similar shade to China Glaze Sun of a Peach or Models Own Beach Bag? Debating if I ‘need’ another shade like those.

    That’s the third China glaze nail polish you have convinced me to buy in the last week! You are a terrible influence! I think thus might be my Glasto shade x

    This colour is gorgeous! I love neon polishes, they really do make you look like you’ve got a tan. It’s funny that I can wear neon on my nails but would rarely dare to wear neon anything else!xo
