Inspire Me Monday: Floam-bre!

All credits to the clever name goes to Samarium's Swatches. She did a Floam-bre a couple days ago, and I knew I just had to do something similar! Here it is:

She used blues, so I decided to switch it up a bit and use green, of course. And instead of applying Floam all over my nails, I did a nice gradient :) The last Ombre Gradient I did was for New Year's if you want to go check that out.

Here is a shot with all 5 of my fingers:

Ahh it is green heaven for me :)

All the base colors I used were China Glaze. Going from the thumb to pinky: Electric Pineapple, Def Defying, Gaga For Green, Starboard, and Holly-Day. All are limited edition, but you can find them on ebay, amazon, and various e-tailors. Each were 2 coats, too, except Electric Pineapple is a little streaky, so it required 3 coats.

And I used Ninja Polish- Floam for the the gradient. It is the same as the Nail Venturous one, but Ninja Polish just took the recipe and makes them now. I believe Nail Venturous is done Frankening polishes? Floam was all the rage a few years ago though. It was one of the first matte glitters, and sold out incredibly fast every time it was in stock. It is a finely milled green and blue matte glitters, and Ninja Polish doesn't just make Floam. She makes all sorts of floam versions, such as purple, blue, and she just released a Cupid Floam for Valentine's day, and is in stock! You can find Ninja Polish HERE.

What do you think? If you want to join Inspire Me Monday, join HERE, there is just 3 of us now.
