Floam is very unique, and unlike anything else that I have seen before. It is made up of tiny tiny blue and green glitter pieces. Enlarge any of these pics to get a better idea of the texture of the glitter. The last pic in the post will give you a particularly good view of it when blown up. The glitter is so small that when you look at it on the nail, it just looks really cool and speckled.
Sometimes this polish looks more blue, sometimes it looks more green. If you squint at it from a distance, the colors blend together into a turquoise color. My photos show two coats of Floam.
It was named Floam after the 90s toy of the same name. Do you guys remember Floam? Sort of a weird, moldable, textured bubbly thing?
I think the name of this polish is so apt because it really does resemble its namesake!
The texture is bumpy, as you might expect from something that is made up of pure glitter. It's workable though, and the texture could be solved with some Gelous and a thick topcoat.
Application was surprisingly easy. The polish itself was very thick, so I thought it might be hard to apply. Thankfully, it was not! It controlled very nicely, and I didn't have to do any cleanup at all on this manicure. The only thing that I had to be careful about was waiting in-between coats to make sure the previous coat was dry before putting on my next one.
Unfortunately, Amy does not have plans at this time to sell these polishes, as she (understandably!) thinks that it will take too much time away from blogging, which she loves too much! BUT, you guys are in luck! She is holding a giveaway for some bottles of Floam, as well as some bottles of Floam's sister polishes, Pinkerbell and Orange You Unique!??!.
