Nail-Venturous Floam!!

Good morning! Today I am SO excited to show you this polish, I was going a little crazy over it on twitter on Saturday...it's Floam! This is made by a fellow blogger named Amy who blogs over at I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous, she posted swatches of this a little while back and I died a bit over this one (who am I kidding, I died A LOT over it...and all her other creations).  For where to buy this please see the end of post...under the photos!

Floam is a mix of yellow-green and blue glitter in a clear base. This is hands down the most interesting glitter I have ever seen, it's neon glitter! I don't even know how to describe this guys, it's glitter but it doesn't sparkle...it just looks awesome and it has SO much depth to it. I wore this on a trip to Ulta on Saturday and the cashier girl literally grabbed my hand and was like WHAT IS THAT?!? I was like guuuuuuurl...let me tell you all about frankens, I think I successfully enabled her to do some shopping on etsy. Formula wise this was on the thick side but it was easy to apply, if you have this it is one you will want to wait a couple minutes between coats. I used 3 coats for full coverage, it did look really great at 2 coats so if you're careful you could get away with that also. This is pretty dense but you could layer it without a problem if that's more your style. It dries matte and with texture but it's easy enough to get shiny and smooth with a couple coats of top coat...it ate top coat a little but I was good with a coat of Gealous followed by Sally Hansen Insta Dri.

This was incredibly hard to photograph, I think the mixture of neon and glitter is hard to get a clear photo of. I took over 100 pictures trying to get a good clear one to show you a close up but it just wasn't happening. I guarantee your eyeballs will pop out of your head if you see this in person!

Does anyone else suddenly feel the urge to buy floam and build some kind of creature with it? I miss my childhood haha!

I bought my bottle of Floam from ninjapolish.com, it was $9 and the bottle is full sized. Floam is sold out right now but as far as I know it will be back! Amy is also opening her own etsy shop, it's set to open on March 19th, you can find it here! I'm not 100% sure if Floam will be available on Amy's etsy but let's hope so! Best Blogger Tips

  1. I was already 'too old" when they came out with floam, but i always thought it looked cool as hell. I'm loving the pix, so i imagine it's that much better in person!

  11. I thought this one was kinda cool. I wonder if it bleeds at all because I've never seen neon glitter before! Doesn't seem to now but it's very very awesome.

  25. So it's not actually made of floam?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh.... my.....God! I have to have this, right now. My son's therapist just gave him floam (under it's new name) for his birthday and I made off with one of the colors.  I love the polish.

    ReplyDelete

  32. My jaw dropped to the floor when I first saw this also over on the Nail Venturous site. I cannot wait until either Amy puts it in her soon to come etsy shop or Nijia get it back in stock. Like you said, I have never seen anything like this before. Thanks for telling me it will need the Gelous so I don't let it eat half a bottle of top coat.

    ReplyDelete

    love Love LOVE!  I have to be honest that I have seen much new in nail polishes in 2012 that seems much different than what I already have in my collection (except for flakies)... but this I am excited about!  I hope I am able to purchase it soon!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love this! I think it's a great looking polish! I don't know if I'll pick it up or not though, seeing your gorgeous swatches however makes that tempting! :D Thanks for the awesome pics and review! :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ooooooooo I just got this in the mail yesterday, along with that Jessica Iridecsent Eye you showed us a few weeks ago!! They're both awesomee!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh wow, I think I *need* this. I saw the picture when you posted it to Twitter and I was hoping it would look something like this from the name. There used to be this stuff I played with as a kid that was called Floam that looked like this (kind of like Play-Doh, but foam), so that's why I was hoping it resembled that - and it does!

    ReplyDelete
  42. LOL And I just noticed after sending my comment that you actually talked about Floam up there. I missed that sentence somehow.

    ReplyDelete
  43. WOW what a beauty!

    ReplyDelete
  44. HOLY WOW!! This is so cool looking!! I love it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. That is the coolest frickin' thing I have ever seen!  I have some indie polishes, I don't buy them that often but I must have this one!

    ReplyDelete
  46. WHAT?! This isn't layered already?! I was looking at the photos thinking "wow, that base colour really sets the glitter off!" It's such good coverage for 3 coats, I love glitters that cover so well! This is really gorgeous! x

  47. WHAT?! This isn't layered already?! Before I read the post I was drooling over the photos thinking that the base colour really set the glitter off. I LOVE glitters that cover so well, this is gorgeous! x
