And here is the nail polish:
It has a mix of yellow, green and blue matte glitter and I would definitelly say it grows on you. The first time I saw it I thought it was ugly and strange but then I came to realise thats why it works. The trouble is, it can be a pain to get hold of, it sells out fast when it is restocked and it has a price tag of £9 ish including shipping from USA. For many people, that is a bit pricey for a bottle of nail polish. Fear not, I have found an alternative, and you can get it for as little as £1.95!!
W7 Cosmic Green.I know, its not a perfect match, there are many differences. Cosmic Green is metallic and Floam is matte neon. That said, the similarities are there and shouldn't be overlooked, and it should keep that lemming at bay for a while. I am surprised nobody else has picked up on this yet but I suspect that is because all eyes have been on the other W7 polishes lately (namely Mosaic, Lava Flow, Salt n Pepper).
Let's take a closer look:
I applied a coat of Rimmel Pro Matte Top Coat on top of Cosmic Green to see if that would make any difference.
Conclusion: They bear more than a passing resemblance and it is my opinion that W7 may have been inspired by Floam somewhat. It is not what I would call a dupe but if you are on a budget and can't be done with waiting for Floam to be restocked, W7 Cosmic Green is for you!
Which one would you choose?
