09/05/13 - Stash Update

Some of you may know about Ninja Polish - Floam. It was wildly popular and then stopped being made. At the time I thought it was cool, but didn't care that much one way or another. When I heard it was very hard to acquire, I was a bit disappointed, but no harm done. Then I bought LynBDesign - Oobleck, and suddenly I needed Floam. I just know that Oobleck and Floam are meant to be. I mean, come on, that's a perfect childhood fun time manicure! And since then I have been looking for dupes to Floam because I need it, but I don't however-much-Ebay-wants-for-it need it, you know?

Well, today in Walmart I saw this new collection from Salon Perfect, and in it is a polish called Kaboom. And I thought, "Hey, this looks very similar to Floam!" So I bought it, and it's half the price of the original price of Floam. And I just looked up swatch comparisons, and it is very close to Floam. Close enough that it works for me! I'm so pleased. Also, Kaboom is a pretty fantastic name too.

  1. Technically interesting: I'm pretty sure that actual "Floam" beads would dissolve in nail-polish solvents. I wonder what it's made of instead?
