Floam!

This is probably one of the most famous indie polishes ever.  I’m sure you’ve already seen a million pictures of this, but I am so excited that I actually have it.  Acquiring Floam was almost like a rite of passage into lacquer-head-dom.  I am now officially a nail polish addict. 🙂

Getting this was actually complete luck.  I literally woke up, saw a tweet that Floam was in stock, went over to Ninja Polish, and bought it.  No stalking, no waiting, it was just there.  And I never thought I’d own it.  I was amazed!

As you probably already know, Floam is a mix of matte neon blue and yellow glitter.  I don’t anticipate ever getting my hands on another bottle without some trouble, so to conserve the polish I layered it over Essie Mojito Madness here.  In the pictures you can tell there’s underwear, but in real life the colors blended so well together that you couldn’t tell it wasn’t just Floam unless you really looked.

The formula was thick, but pretty standard for a glitter.  But it was a bitch to get off.  I couldn’t even do clean up here – it just wasn’t happening.  But whatever.  It’s Floam.  And it’s awesome!

My little sister was going through my stash when I first got this, and without looking at the label, she picked it up and said, “This looks like that foam play-doh stuff.”  So it definitely looks like its namesake.  And really makes me want to go get some real Floam 🙂

Nail-Venturous recently stopped making polish, but Ninja Polish has been producing it, and is doing a great job at keeping it in stock.  If you want a bottle, you can sign up to be notified when it’s back in stock, but my suggestion is to follow them on Twitter for faster updates.
