Good morning! I hope everyone has recovered from the long weekend. Show of hands, who had a 4-day weekend... anyone? Not I :( I feel like I'm dragging butt today though, I'm still not recovered from the lack of sleep this past weekend.
Anywho, today I have a polish I have been meaning to try for a while, I have had it probably since the fall and this is my first time wearing it. This is Ninja Polish Floam (originally from Nail-Venturous).
This is 3 coats of Floam over bare nail. At a distance, this looks like a blue/teal mix, but it's blue and yellow. Honestly, when I first got into nails this was the must-have polish and I didn't see what all the excitement was about. Then in the fall, someone in a Facebook group I was in announced that it was back in stock on Ninja Polish, so I checked it out and got it anyways :) Impulse buy!!
After wearing this for a day, I have decided that I love it :) It's pretty easy to work with even though it is super glitter loaded (you should use the foil removal method for this because the tiny glitters get ALL OVER if you scrub it off...). It is recommended that you wait until each layer is dry before applying the next, I guess this is to reduce the risk of dragging glitters.
I was going to add a top coat to this, but was honestly too lazy to, so I didn't, and I love the way it looks without top coat :) I also love the texture of it without a top coat. If you do not like textured/bumpy nails, you will need to add the top coat (or maybe a few coats) for sure! This is almost the same texture as a rough-grit sandpaper, but it's not sharp. I found myself petting my nails all day ;)
I took a picture of my thumb with my macro setting (I take all my nail pictures with the macro setting on) and I was curious to see how it turned out, and it turned out pretty awesome! I thought maybe it would be a little blurry, but that's not the case. This shows each glitter individually, and you can see the complexity of it! But as you can see, there are still a few bald spots, so if you don't like that I would suggest layering over a base colour, or add a fourth coat.
You can get the original Floam (this one), and many other colour combination floam polishes from Ninja Polish. They have recently announced that they now have all the rights to the floam-family polishes!
Do you like Floam, or any of the floam-type polishes? Were you around when the Floam craze started?
