Review // China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Flip Flop Fantasy

17 Matte Top Coat
I have heard a lot about China Glaze Nail Lacquer in the shade Flip Flop Fantasy so decided to treat myself to it. Flip Flop Fantasy is taken from the China Glaze Poolside Nail Collection for 2010. It is a beautiful neon, matte, hot pink. It is bright. Very bright!

I applied this on top of Sally Hansen's Double Duty base/top coat and applied a thin layer of Flip Flop Fantasy before recoiling in shock/glee. It is bright. Like I-can't-stop-staring-at-my-hands bright. I loved it! I carried on like a trooper and then applied another coat before realising how streaky this actually applies. It is a matte finish but good grief, is it streaky! The best way to overcome this is to put on a thick layer rather than thin layers which show up the streaks.

Like I said, it's a matte finish and I really liked the finished look so I didn't want to put on a glossy top coat so I chose 17's Matte Top Coat instead. I found that this nail varnish/top coat combo lasted just about 3 days before I noticed chipping. I was actually really gutted to take this nail varnish off but needs must and I will definitely be using this nail varnish all summer long! Another plus to Flip Flop Fantasy is that it makes you look really tanned and when you are as pale as me, you need all the help you can get.
