Nail-Venturous Floam!

I could not believe my luck when I got an email from the lovely Sue of Creative Nail Design by Sue, saying that I won a bottle of Nail-venturous Floam (along with 2 other awesome polishes) from her!  I had pretty much come to terms with the fact that I'd probably never own this beauty and now I,  as Sue put it, am a "Floam owner"!

I really wanted to wear China Glaze "I'm With The Lifeguard" again and decided to use that as a base.  I did a Floam accent nail for a few reasons; 10% of my choice was because I liked how it looked, and 90% was to conserve as much Floam as possible :D

Floam is a clear base with blue and yellow matte glitters:




Beauteous, no?  Are you a 'Floam Owner'?  Do you try to conserve your Floam like me?

  6. Sigh, what I wouldn't give to be a Floam owner. I'll have to settle for the pair of Floam nail polish earrings I ordered!

    1. Hi Jia Wun! Yeah, it's pretty difficult to get-it's a polish that sells out immediately whenever it restocks :(

  9. I definitely recommend conserving the Floam by using it as an accent nail for numerous reasons. I did a full mani with Floam having used Orly Viridian Vinyl as my underwear and it took 3 coats of Floam to get it to the opaqueness I liked. This not only used up a CRAPTON of my Floam...but removal...well...

    I do gel on my nails then polish ontop. After soaking off all the nail polish I had to file...FILE the glitter off. I don't know what I would have done if this was directly on my natural nail. Don't get me wrong, I love it, I do...I just do not recommend using it as a full mani. Or if you do, don't be all OCD and perfectionist on crack and try to get it to perfect coverage.

    That green looks great on you, by the way! That's one of the new neons I didn't pick up because greens tend to be tricky for me.

    1. I'm definitely weary of the take-off aspect of this...I'll see how one nail goes before I decide if it's ever worth it to do them all!! THanks for the heads up! (FILING glitter off?? BOO)

  13. What a lovely combination!!! That is so awesome that you won the polish!! :D

  14. Is it just me, or do you seem to win an awful lot of stuff? Must be a gift of yours, lol! I've heard so much about this elusive shade and while I think an all-out mani might be a tad much (especially at my age!), as an accent nail, it really rocks! What a happy combo!
