I find it unbelievable that tomorrow is going to be Christmas Eve. Where did the year 2012 go? To me, it just flew by way to fast. But usually I am looking forward to the Holidays as they mean spending time with the family and a few relaxing days. I also love Christmas-y decorations and food as well as getting gifts for others. Of course I also love Christmas themed manicures and as you might know by now, I fell in love with the Holiday collection 2012 from the independent nail polish seller Ninja Polish. I already showed you Sapphire Dreams and Shattered Star as well as No Peeking!. Today I have for you another favorite from this collection. It is Candy Cane Floam, which "as part of the Floam polish family, contains fine red and white matte glitters."
To make both the red and the white glitter pop, I decided to layer Candy Cane Floam over a contrasting color. I went with Essie Stylenomics, a dark bottle green crème. I thought red, white and green would make a great Holiday theme, but I am not overly happy with this combo. Stylenomics turned out way too dark on my nails, it looks almost black. I used one coat of Candy Cane Floam on top and you get a good amount of glitter on your nails. So you could get this opaque on its own, which I will try next time. I finished the manicure off with two coats of Essence Soft Touch matte topcoat. Floam polishes are topcoat hungry so you need a thick one or several coats to get it smooth, but it is worth it!
Just like the other members of the Floam nail polish family, Candy Cane Floam is a lot of fun to look at and it is easy to work with. I can see myself wearing this not only during the Holiday season :D
That is it for today. Now I need to wrap some gifts and work on my Christmas manicure, so stay tuned for that! Thanks for reading, have a great Sunday.
