Good morning! Sorry for being all over the place with my nail length these days. I have quite a few posts ready to go with longer nails, then I had a break so I had to file them all down to nubs. So just bare with me while I use up the drafts I have ready while switching to my nubs for posts that need to go up immediately. Let's talk neon coral. Let's talk China Glaze. Let's talk Flip Flop Fantasy - one of China Glazes most popular summer/neon shades ever! I played a little game at the American International Industries booth at ComsoProf North America and was given a bottle of Flip Flop Fantasy as a gift! How cool is that? I did a huge post featuring AII and all the upcoming China Glaze collections, if you missed it you can see it HERE. But now let's talk neon (we better be quick because summer is just about over!)!
Flip Flop Fantasy is truly the ultimate summer neon color. It's somewhere between a coral and a peach shade. This particular color makes me look uber tan (even though I already am tan it actually made me look even tanner). Like other neon cremes, this was a bit chalky upon application. It dries quickly and uneven. Thankfully it builds up nicely and I only needed 3 coats of Flip Flop Fantasy for full, even coverage. Flip Flop Fantasy dries to a matte finish and needs top coat to be shiny.
I wanted to bling it up a bit so I used a dry brush and dipped it into a pot of loose silver holo micro glitters. I then dabbed the glitters onto the wet polish up near my cuticles and brought a few stray glitters downward. I used 1 layer of topcoat to keep the glitters in place and to gloss up Flip Flop Fantasy.
