Flip Flop #28: Recreate your favourite day

I'm calling this another delicate manicure, just so that I eventually finish this challenge!  What I actually wanted to do was multicoloured half moons with China Glaze It's A Trap-eze, but I painted the China Glaze on and it never got any further than that...

Anyhoo, I wanted to show you a couple of my new polishes :)


This is OPI You're Such a Budapest from the new Euro Centrale collection mini set, topped with two coats of OPI Lights of Emerald City.

As usual, the purple is actually warmer than it appears here/  Seems ridiculous that my camera hates purple so much when it is itself purple...baffling.

The glitter was a little disappointing really...  It contains small iridescent (I have no idea if that's how it's spelt...) squares, as well as larger white squares.  The base is reeeaally thick.  I don't know if thinning it down with some Seche Restore would make it more manageable, or if it would just ruin the suspension base?  Advice would be appreciated!  The white squares were pretty difficult to fish out as well.  I do like the effect, I think it's pretty and quite unusual, but all in all a little underwhelming to be honest.

What do you think?  Do you have your eye on any of the polishes from either of these collections?

I have a few reviews coming up for you over the next week or two (one thing that I'm particularly excited about - it's going to change my freehanding life!) so watch this space.

Don't forget to take a look at what all the other lovely ladies chose to recreate for the final day of the challenge!


  1. I'm now interested in the opi polish after seeing your blog post, what a beautiful combo!

    1. Thanks :) I forgot to mention my boyfriend chose the undies. Although he did choose gold at first...silly boy.

  2. Beautiful! I want this polish :)

    1. Thanks Char. It is very pretty :) I just wish application was a little easier!
