I don't know about the rest of you,but whenever I see the name of this polish my mind always changes the name to Pink Flamingo,and then I think of the John Waters movie that I accidentally caught a glimpse of when I was a kid.Needless to say, it practically scarred me for life-I still can't see a live chicken without thinking about that scene *shudders*. Anyway, this lovely polish has nothing to do with that. Pink Flamenco was released as a part of OPI's snooze-tastic Espana collection (OK, I admit that I love the three vampies,and Can You Tapas This?,but the rest? *yawns*) I purchased this colour simply because I love the colour pink.It's an unusual choice for fall, but I have never been one to follow the strict rules regarding colour seasons.I do like the colour though.It's not the most ground-breaking shade I've ever seen,but it's pretty and eye-catching.The formula is nice too,it only took me two coats to achieve the bottle colour but I always add three out of habit. It's raining outside,so both of my crappy pictures are indoors.

Neither picture is what I would call true-to-life.The first picture is too bright,and the second is too coral-looking.The real life colour is somewhere in between. I really like this colour I don't feel compelled to buy any of the other shades,because none of them are interesting enough.And that's just sad.
My favourite Fall collections were offered by Color Club and China Glaze.Misa's ad campaign turned me off,and I'm not a fan of the current Matte craze with the exception of OPI's Suedes and Zoya's Mattes.
In other news,I've been practicing with my Konad kit all weekend.Verdict: Fun! but frustrating thus far,I'll post the results when I stop messing them up :P
Pinkginger-who is thoroughly enjoying the stamping experience-even though I suck at it right now.
