Review: Nail-Venturous Floam!

Site-stalking win!  I've been stalking ninjapolish.com for a while now, hoping and hoping to finally get my hands on some of the more interesting polishes from Nail-Venturous.  I got the email about a week ago saying that Floam was in stock so I instantly sent the payment and it got here yesterday.  Despite being on a high from meeting Hanson (I TOUCHED TAYLOR I COULD DIE) I forced myself to try it out and it's just amazing!

Floam is a very very unique style of glitter polish.  Much like Orange You Unique, it's a very dense mixture of flat glitter, this time in neon blue and green.  Where the orange version was a little off, this is just amazing.  From a distance it's a striking blue-green, up close you see all the detail.  It was a little stange in the orange version but the blue green is perfect.  Application was a little tricky as the polish is quite thick, it's worth it.  This is three coats with a top coat.  








The Verdict: LOVE IT.  That's all.  Although if it's anything like Orange You Unique, it'll be a pain to get off but whatevs.

I HAVE A GIVEAWAY STILL, GOOOOOOO DO!

  2. I really want to like this. I really like the idea of non glittery glitter, but I just don't like the way it looks. It's not as awful as the Orange You Unique, but I still don't think I would be able to wear it.

    1. I SHOOK HANDS WITH ALL THREE OF THEM. I just couldn't believe that after all these years I finally got to meet them.

      Funny story though, I got them to sign a sketch a friend of mine did of me being all excited about MMMBop being played at a bar. In the background, a little figure saying "WTF Hansen" and being all disapproving. TAYLOR CORRECTED THE SPELLING MISTAKE I COULD DIE.

  4. OMG how random, I came across your blog because of your awesome mermaid nails (and other unique glitter manis) but now I'm definitely going to follow you because I LOVE HANSON, TOO!

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
