Hmm, Jonna, I've never seen you in earrings...
Here's the online dictionary I use most frequently:
Diccionario del Español Usual en México: http://www.cervantesvirtual.com/...9495211191/index.htm
And then there's this one, of course--the big guns of the Royal Academy: http://www.rae.es/
Derrapante does not appear in either of these two dictionaries.
I've never heard the word used in Mexico...which doesn't mean that no one uses it, just that I've never heard it. In conversation, I'd stick with some of the more usual words for slippery. The one I hear most frequently is the verb resbalar(se), and the adjective (resbaloso(a)--followed by the verb deslizar(se).
Take a look in the first link, the Diccionario del Español Usual en México.
