Polish Days: Jelly Sandwich

Happy Tuesday Loves!

Today I’m super excited to be participating in another Polish Days event! If you don’t know what Polish Days are you can click here to find out more about them ūüôā

Last time, we posted¬† on Floam and it was so¬†cool to see the varied ways in which so many lovely bloggers chose to wear that bright and fun polish. Today’s Polish Days theme is *Jelly Sandwich*. This one has so many possibilities because there are so many lovely jellies and so many gorgeous glitters.

For my jelly sandwich, I decided to use Cult Nails Feel Me Up and Spoiled Trust Fund Baby.

Feel Me Up is a¬†beautiful buttercup-yellow with a smooth¬† jelly/creme hybrid formula. It can go either way, but for today’s purposes, I took advantage of its jelly side.

Trust Fund Baby is an amazing glittery lovely from Spoiled. It’s a mixture of blue, black, gold and magenta square and hex¬†glitters in a clear base.

In the pics below I started of with 2 coats of Feel Me Up, then I topped that with one coat of Trust Fund Baby, and then I finished it all off with one more thin coat of Feel Me Up. Et Voila! Check it out:

Nail-Venturous Floam

Happy Tuesday Loves!

Today I’m doing a special post to participate in Polish Days which is a cool idea that was created by a couple of other nail bloggers. Basically, a bunch of us nail bloggers will have a particular day that we collectively agree to post on one particular polish. I think it’s a¬†fun and neat idea¬†to see how the same polish looks on lots of different people.

The polish chosen for the first official “Polish Day” is the awesome bottle of fun that is Floam by Nail-Venturous.

I’m sure you guys have seen this swatched a million and one times already because it’s been one of the most popular polishes on the nail scene this year, but I haven’t posted on it yet, so I’m glad I saved it for today.

Floam is a mix of matte glitters in neon blue and yellow-green, floating happily in a clear base.

I’m gonna be honest and say that the first time I tried Floam, I was disappointed. It was gritty and thick and hard to do clean up on and I was so sad that it wasn’t all I’d expected it to be. I got my bottle from Ninja Polish on the first day that the site went live, so I considered myself super lucky to have snagged a bottle, and that’s the only thing that kept me from swapping it away.¬†So I set it aside for a couple of weeks, and then I decided to layer it instead of building it up on its own, and voila! I stopped hating it and I fell in love with it for the beauty it is! ūüôā

Anyway, in the pics below I layered 2 coats of Floam over 2 coats of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise (which I happen to think is the perfect “underwear” for it ūüėČ ) . Peep it:

And here’s a pic of Floam with one of the rings that I made¬†with it (available in my Etsy shop).

Floam is awesomesauce right?

It’s a pain in the ass to remove, but I think it’s so worth it.

So now that you’ve seen my swatches of this lovely, I encourage you to check out the other wonderful bloggers that are sporting Floam fingers today:
