NOTD -- Girly Floam from Nail-Venturous / Ninja Polish

From L-R, 2 coats of Girly Floam over: OPI Pink Friday, Revlon Charming, Zoya Perrie, China Glaze Spontaneous

 Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend.. mine was busy! We had Chris' final frisbee tournament of the year on Saturday and then the Metro Atlanta Beauty Bloggers group that I started had our first meet up on Sunday! It was so much fun! I'll have a post covering it for you up later this week!

Girly Floam is sold by Ninja Polish under the Nail-Venturous brand, even though Amy is no longer making polish these days. I have the original Floam, which you can see here, and I freaking LOVE it.. so of course I had to get the purple and pink version!

Much like the original, Girly Floam is multi-colored, matte micro-glitter in a clear base. You can build it up to opacity, but I prefer to use it more sparingly and layer it. Plus it's fun to come up with tons of different layering combinations! You can see in the top picture that Girly Floam looks pretty different depending on what color you put it over.. and you don't just have to stick to pinks and purples, either!

Girly Floam is top coat hungry. I used 1 coat of a super-goopy Seche Vite on the top picture and then just 1 coat of Revlon's Color Stay top coat on the bottom picture. You can see that the bottom one still looks slightly gritty and isn't completely shiny.

Finally, this is how I ended up actually wearing Girly Floam for the first time after I got done playing around with the pink/purple color combos:

Super cute and would be PERFECT for Spring! I love it! :)
