I'm always on the lookout for new polish brands and I'd seen Floss Gloss around the place and thought I'd give it a shot. I'm so glad I did because they are so very super sparkly and awesome. I've been moving away from the traditional polish reviews lately as I like to contribute to the internet something that hasn't been done before. I really wanted to try out these polishes so the hardest part was trying to find out how to incorporate a coral, very dark brow, gold glitter and silver glitter polishes in the one mani. Why not jump aboard the art deco train and do something with triangles and call it art deco?
I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do. I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it. Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss. As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows? I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin. Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish. Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints. I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours. The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!
