Pretty & Polished - Flip Flop Fuggetaboutit! Swatches and Review

Hi everyone!

I feel like taking out my indie polishes these days, so today I have another "hand made" creation for you. This one is made by Chels Marie from Pretty & Polished. Flip Flop Fuggetaboutit! is one of 10 color changing polishes she added to her store recently. Chels Marie herself describes this as a "brightly colored salmon pink creme with touches of glitter". Depending on the temperature, the polish changes from bright pink to white. 

In the bottle and under "cooler" conditions, Flip Flop Fuggetaboutit! is a hot, almost neon pink base. It contains small holographic blue hexes, medium round fuchsia glitter and small hexagonal glitter in the same salmon pink color, hence you can only see it in the "warm" condition. I chose this polish from the range, because it seemed to have the most obvious color changing effect. I was really surprised how well this worked and I love when both colors show up on my nails - the white over the nail plate and the pink at the free edge. I guess the longer your nails, the better this effect will show up.
Flip Flop Fuggetaboutit! was opaque with two coats. It is on the thicker side, but still easy to work with and you do not have to fish for the glitter. It does dry gritty and is hungry for top coat. For the photos above I added two coats of a-England's The Shield and still the surface was pretty bumpy. I did not add more top coat, because I didn't want my nails to be too thick. Maybe you'll get it completely smooth with a glitter tamer such as Gelous.
Even though the formula is Big 3 Free, I noticed a quite strong chemical smell, which wasn't too pleasant. If you're working in a well ventilated area, it shouldn't be much of a problem, though.
All in all, I really like this polish and the fact that she added glitter to the color changing base. I can definitely see myself adding another one or two of these color changing polishes next time I order from Pretty & Polished. The color changers retail for $9.50 per full-size bottle (15ml) in her shop (here) and she does ship internationally.
That is my two cents for today. I hope you enjoyed this post.
Thanks for reading!
