Floam day!

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Tuesday :) I apologise for my absence... again. I might explain more in another post but for now, let's just say that I'm sorry, okay?

Today is a fun day! A bunch of blogger friends have decided to get together and do a theme post. With indies taking our world by storm, it can't be a surprise that we chose Floam to be the polish we all featured.

Floam is created by Amy of Nail-Venturous. You can get them from her Etsy shop or from Ninja Polish. I got mine from my dear friend Kellie - thank you so much, sweetums! <3

I'm sure we all know it by now but just in case - Floam is awesome. It's a mixture of matte neon teal and yellow glitter named after a very flammable toy for children. I've never played with Floam, never seen it, I didn't even know what it was until this polish haha.

I layered two coats of Floam over a coat of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise. And I apologise for the photos. :( This is my fourth time wearing Floam and every single time I've worn it the weather has been crappy. I love neons but I hate photographing them. My camera makes them look washed out and I'm terrible at photo editing so... yeah. Floam really is neon and it's much more teal than my pictures make it look. Thankfully, there will be lots of other pictures to compare mine to, so just imagine it with... you know, more neon. I also added a topcoat - it doesn't bring out any sparkle, of course, since Floam is matte glitter, but this is a thirsty glitter!

This polish is seriously so cute haha. I think I'd find the toy less so, but that's fine, I never did like risking fires anyway.

What do you lovelies think? Have you managed to grab Floam yet? I have a spare bottle that I'm thinking of adding to a giveaway... would that be a prize you'd be interested in?

And a big thank you to the lovely Hannah of Polly Polish for organising Floam day! <333

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!
