NOTD -- FLOAM!!!


Hey everyone! Today's polish is one we've all seen a hundred times by now, but it's one I thought might never grace my blog. Nail-Venturous' Floam sells out within seconds of being restocked, and I tried (unsuccessfully) many times to get it.

Thankfully, I have amazing friends! Steph surprised me with a bottle and seriously made my month. :)

Floam is a thick glitter polish that consists of matte neon blue, yellow and green glitters in a clear base. It's based off of the squishy, malleable toy from the 90s which bears the same name. Floam can be worn alone, but it leaves some bald spots.. so I prefer to layer it. Shown above is 2 coats of Floam over 1 coat of China Glaze's Turned Up Turquoise (which is also a neon). I topped it with 1 coat of SV, but I think it could have easily used another to make the surface appear less gritty.


Here you can see three coats of Floam by itself. The glitter shows up better this way, but you can still see the bare nail underneath and the tips didn't get covered evenly, either.


And here's the bottle itself! I love the label! It's definitely a throwback to the original product. :) Floam can be purchased either from Nail-Venturous' Etsy shop or Ninja Polish. She's currently closed for an extended period of time, but she always updates on Facebook before she opens!

Next up, I need Pinkerbell! :)
