Nail Venturous!! Floam, Robin Laid an Egg, and Rustic Remains

Hello!!  Today I decided to group three of the most beautiful polishes!  These are by Amy of Nail-Venturous.  She is a sweetheart and I'm so glad she decided to make these available for us!!!  You can find her on Facebook HERE.  She often has updates for store openings there.  Her Etsy shop is located HERE.  Unfortunately, she is out of stock, but hopes to be back within 1-2 weeks! ;-)  You can sign up to receive a notification when she returns.

She also sells through Ninja Polish, HERE.  They too are unfortunately out of stock, but hopefully we have more in soon!  You can sign up for e-mail notifications on their site as well.  All of Amy's polishes sell for $9 each.  I bought Floam from them, which finally made it's way to me!  I had an issue with my order, but Rhonni from Ninja Polish was kind enough to make sure I received my bottle!  I'm so glad to own this beauty, as it's unlike anything I've ever seen.  Ninja has adorable labels too!!

Floam is made up of blue and yellow neon glitter that doesn't really shine until you put on a top coat.  It reminds me of a pointillism painting, like Seurat does in his painting below! ;-)  It's just instantly what came to mind and has stuck with me.  The style of the tiny little dots forming together that creates depth and one solid object from afar that is really made up of multiple little dots of different colors.  At least that's my description! lol

Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (Un dimanche après-midi à l’Ile de la Grande Jatte), Georges Seurat, 1884-1886.

I layered Floam over 3 coats of OPI What's With the Cattitude? with a coat of Wicked Fast top coat and Poshe top coat.  I can't wait to try out other combinations, as this polish will look great layered or even by itself!!


Next I have Robin Laid an Egg by Nail Venturous!  This I ordered from her Etsy site!  Her items have been selling out VERY quickly, because they are in such high demand.  I was SO very lucky to grab the ones I did!  I wore this for Easter on Sunday!  This is 2 coats with Wicked Fast top coat.  As many of you know by now, white with glitter has been my recent obsession.  This definitely doesn't disappoint!  My favorite part has to be the blue, pink, and yellow hexagons and micro glitter used in this creamy white base!  It just makes me happy to even look at the bottle. :-D

And last but not least, is Rustic Remains.  Amy has told me she may not be able to purchase more of the glitter that is used in this color.  I sincerely hope some becomes available again because this color is absolutely stunning.  From older pictures that I saw from Amy, I knew that this was one I wanted needed!! ;-)  This is one coat of Rustic Remains over Cult Nails Manipulative (a new release from them!).  The two go together so beautifully in my opinion!  It kind of reminds me of speckled eggs! hehe  There is this gorgeous green/gold shimmer through this polish!  And of course the bronze/rust looking flakies of different sizes are absolutely beautiful!  I can't wait to use this in layering too!

My ring finger captures a bit of that shimmer in this photo!
So I realize these have been pretty hard to get, but please don't be discouraged!  Amy is a sweetheart and is working very hard to get these out to all those that want them!  I do hope that you each will find the ones you want, as I too felt that way trying to get these!  They are worth the wait though, I can tell you that!! :-D

Hope you have a great day!!!
