Nail-Venturous Floam




The title of this post should actually be: “Why haven’t you used this polish before, you dolt?!” That is exactly how I’ve been feeling since I finally wore Nail-Venturous Floam. When Amy posted about this polish on her blog back in 2012, I was not yet familiar with the world of nail polish blogs. From time to time I would google nail polish, but I never got past seeing the google images results. When I finally started reading blogs later in the year, I was a total glitter hater. Longtime readers can vouch for my crazy hatred of glitter back in the day, but luckily I came to my senses. By the time I had a polish boner for Floam, it was pretty hard to get. Imagine how excited I was when I got this as a birthday gift from Jessica! I wanted it so bad that I didn’t want to waste it by actually using it. Don’t look at me that way: I know some of you are the same way with polishes that you treasure. I’m sure you have seen a million swatches of this polish, but it’s new to me so I’m just as excited about it as when I first got the bottle in the mail.

It can be a little thick and difficult to work with, but I love the end result. I know that there are some dupes out there, but I am so glad to have the original. I don’t even know if this is being sold anymore because it’s out of stock on ninjapolish.com

So what do you think? Are there polishes like this that you love but are now impossible to get? I hope you have a nice day today. Thanks for catching up with me today, and I will talk to you soon!


Ninja Polish: Nail-Venturous Humblebee

Today I have another installment of the reformed glitter hater chronicles. I’ve been on a serious glitter high for the last month or so despite all of my previous statements about hating glitter. I still have issues with it when it comes to removal, but otherwise I am mesmerized by the world of indie glitters. There are so many amazing glitters out there and I recently I did something I said I didn’t have the patience to do: buy some polishes on Etsy. Now, that statement came from all the complaints I would hear about having to stalk certain shops, but I had no problems whatsoever getting the glitters I wanted. That is probably going to change in the new future once people get a load of the polishes I have coming. I’ll have those later in the week so I’ll be able to post them soon.

I decided to use the second polish I recently purchased from Ninja Polish: Humblebee. It is such an amazing matte glitter in the same vein of Floam. I layered it over Wet N Wild Pin ‘Em Slater from their HTF collection, Saved By The Nail. I didn’t really need a base color because you can build up Humblebee to opacity, but you have to be sure to allow each coat to dry or else you risk dragging.




This is 3 coats of Pin ‘Em Slater. If you don’t want VNL, you must wear some white undies.


And here is the majestic Humblebee. Ahhh….so pretty!

Sorry for more food porn…don’t mean to make you hungry. I was so in the mood for these carne asada tacos so they hit the spot.

Today was not as hot but it was still pretty gross. I can’t wait for this weather to just calm the F down. How has your week been? Ready for hump day tomorrow?
