Hello everyone, sorry not posted for a while, been pretty busy and whatnot. Today I am doing a post along with some other bloggers featuring a polish from Nail-Venturous called Floam, (after the childrens toy which is some sort of mouldable foam microbead stuff that was about in the 90's - I'm too old to remember that!).
I will pop links to the other ladies after the photo's. Meanwhile here's a little badge that Hannah from Polly Polish created for days when lots of bloggers want to do a themed manicure!
This polish you can find many swatches for on it's own, but I thought I'd do something different and try layering over a totally different colour to what most people use (i.e a turquoise or green base). So I chose a pink polish with a subtle shimmer, from Boots 17 called Spring Petal.
I think in hindsight I probably should have used something more neon like Illamasqua Collide to really make it bright, but I still like the colours together nonetheless.
Here's a picture and close up in direct sunlight:

I really like this polish although I did have to add a lot of thinner to it to make it spreadable, but I prefer thinner polishes. Once I did this, it applied like a dream and dried SO quickly, very impressive. The only downside was it took three layers of topcoat to get it even.
Do you have Floam or have you tried anything different with it at all?
Thankyou for looking! xxx
