Swatch: Ninja Polish - Girly Floam

Floam polish was originally concocted by Nail Venturous and was a green and yellow matte glitter. Since then there has been an agreement where Ninja Polish makes the floam. Since the original was a complete hit there has been around ten different and new versions.

This is Girly Floam, which is matte glitter in a clear base polish. The glitter is a light is a light pink and a mid lilac. Below is four coats of the glitter, and at that point it was getting a little thick.

No top coat, four coats of Girly Floam;
