NOTD: China Glaze "Flirty Tankini"
UPDATE: This polish stained my nails orange!! It's fixable with some denture fizzing cleaning tablets and a nail brush but just be aware...
I saw this on Scrangie's blog and knew I had to have it. Then when I got it, I looked at the bottle and thought "Hmmm, not what I'd hoped it'd be". But once on the nail, oh yes, me seriously likey again!! :) But as Scrangie said, the only thing I don't like about this polish is the name. "Flirty Tankini". Why??? How??? I would have called it, ehm.. "Retina-Searing Coral", or something. I don't know. Something raunchy. Not a tankini, anyway. Maybe even "Flirty MANKINI" would've been hotter?..
Anyway, I digress. This is a neon, so it's rather thick to apply, can streak and dries matte. But a coat of top coat will remove any doubts about how seriously hot it is. I think this polish definitely defines the weekend weather we've had - soaring (for UK...) temperatures and glorious sunshine! I've worked on my tan, and got some sunburn in the process, oops.... Nothing a bit of aloe vera can't cure though.
This is 3 coats with a coat of MegaShine. I needed the 3 coats cause I didn't wait enough time in between coats so it went bald in a couple of places... Seriously hot! It has a secret shimmer which makes it glow. I even made a matching pedicure, how 80's is that??? Now if only I could find a matching lipgloss... B-)
On a different note, check out how jazzy my tulips from last years Chelsea Flower Show are! They are called 'Cummins'. They were from Blom's Bulbs, they had an amazing stand in the Great Pavillion. I am bummed I didn't get to go this year but me and my Mum have decided we will definitely go next year!! My garden is really coming on, I loved sitting on the patio sunworshipping next to the dwarf apple tree that has just come into flower.. All the busy bumblebees flying about! My extremely furry cat didn't like it so much though, he was sveltering in the shade of the garden shed...
