Nailstalgia-China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy

Hey guys, ugh, I'm so sorry this post is a day late.  I left to go up to Chicago for work, having already swatched this polish, and it just completely slipped my mind.  Sorry about that!  Today I have this month's Nailstalgia post which is China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy.  Let's get right into it!

Flip Flop Fantasy is a classic peachy neon from China Glaze that comes in two versions.  The older version, I think, is deeper and a little more coral.  The new version is more of a neon peach.  I will be showing you the newer version.  I panicked at the beginning of last week because I forgot this polish was the chosen one for this month, so my poor husband went two places just to find it.  Thanks hubby!

First off, I'd like to say that this polish is bright, like eye-searing bright.  I think this is the brightest polish I've ever seen or worn and even I didn't feel comfortable wearing it to work, and I've worn everything including neons to work.  

As for the formula, it's pretty crap-tastic.  It's streaky with a capital S and I needed three coats to even everything out.  I also noticed it pulled away the polish as you apply it so I had to be really careful with application as well as letting it dry in between each coat.  As with most eye-searing neons, it dries matte and needs topcoat to make everything shiny again.  My photos don't even come close to showing how bright this polish is, the camera just simply freaked out!

Do you guys own this polish?  What do you think of it.  I really do like the color, I'm just not sure how often I'll actually be wearing it, just because it's so bright :)


  1. I really like the color on it too and want to get it now. It would be such a great pedicure color too.

  2. i own this and it is so pretty and pretty, but no idea if i have the new or the old... hmm...

  3. Your husband is wonderful to hunt that down for you! The new version is so pretty, too! <3

  4. That's nice of your hubby. :) This polish looks great! I love wearing neons for the summer, and China Glaze makes the most intense ones, so I have a lot of them. For me, it feels like you can never have too bright of a color on your nails. :)

  5. I don't own it. The polish looks lovely on you but, if the formula is that bad I think I'll skip this one.

  6. i totally love it! it's one of the few I can somehow justify owning even though it needs three coats.
