Flip Flop Fantasy is a retina-searing coral neon (which I showed you once here). I like how my camera freaked out at the brightness and the color looks different in every image. I remember when this collection was coming out this polish was all I could think about for weeks. Weeks, I tell you! Then I got it, wore it once, and haven't looked at it since. Isn't that sad? Truth be told that happens with most of the polishes that I buy unless I really love them. That having been said, if I'm going to wear a neon, this is definitely the one I'm going to reach for. The formula is crappy. It's really hard to get it even, and even with three coats I have noticeable bald spots. Actually, I'm surprised they didn't show up so much in the photos. And of course neon pigment makes the polish dry matte/satin, so if you want this shiny look you'll need to add topcoat.
Last night I went to the midnight release of...well, I bet you all know.
Things I learned from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2:
1. Awkward Voldemort hugs are truly the best hugs.
2. Even with a huge special effects budget and Hollywood movie magic, it is evidently still completely impossible to make Emma Watson look any older than she is right at this moment.
3. Cleveland LOVES Neville Longbottom.
Seriously, in EVERY SCENE that featured Neville the people in the theatre were clapping and cheering. I didn't get it. I clap and cheer when I see Gary Oldman, though, so to each his own (I almost had a happy aneurysm when they showed the new Batman trailer and a very bedraggled G. Oldman is featured prominently; squee!). I'm a huge HP fan. When I was 13 I broke my ankle. I was couch-ridden for a while, and my mom brought me Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone to read. Ever since then I can't get enough. I've read the books more times than I'd care to admit. I feel like I grew up with these characters and I definitely wish Sirius Black was my godfather ;) But the movie was good. Very fun, very fulfilling. They changed a few things from the book, but I was okay with it. I'm glad I saw it at midnight. Sigh. The end of an era.
That's all for today. Opinions on Flip Flop Fantasy? What's your favorite neon polish?
