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!

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

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!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
