Review: Nail-Venturous Floam!

Site-stalking win!  I've been stalking 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.



  1. This polish is amazing! Great photos.
    That certainly does look like Floam. Oh, childhood :)

  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.

  3. I love it! Also, YOU TOUCHED TAYLOR!!!!!????AAAHH! That is awesome!

    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!

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
