Hello, hello! Today I'll be introducing my latest Floss Gloss lacquers, Wavepool and Dimepiece. I discovered Floss Gloss on Twitter, and I was immediately drawn to the antique twist on the bottles. Aren't they cute?!
Wavepool is a super bright, pastel blue. It dries to a semi-matte/semi-gloss/satin finish, resembling the finish that was marketed for the Orly Plastix Collection that released a couple years back. I'm personally not too big on that finish, so I topped it off with Seche Vite to bring out the glossy shine.
Dimepiece is marketed as a one-coat silver holographic glitter, but I think that claim really depends on how you apply your polish. I typically use thin coats, so I needed 2 coats to get an opaque finish, and a third coat to fill in any sparse patches. I coated it with a layer of Seche Vite, but I'd suggest adding another coat (or two?) to get a completely smooth, non-gritty finish.

I picked these up on Floss Gloss for $8 each. The price ain't bad, but you might want to keep in mind that they're really small! I was actually kind of shocked when they arrived because they're so tiny lol. Floss Gloss polishes contain 5.5 mL of product, compared to OPI polishes that contain 15 mL.
Despite the price to quantity ratio, I'm already looking forward to my next order!
I think their bottles make great collectibles for any polish stash, and they're definitely worth splurging on if you're into the aesthetics of pretty packaging.
I'd also like to add that they are really on top of their customer service! There are so many indie polish brands out there that I can't even emphasize the importance of customer service. The girls behind Floss Gloss do a great job of interacting with and responding to their customers. I think it's dope that I can identify with their brand, and that's what makes them stand out to me (:
P.S. If this mani looks familiar, it's because I wore it to The Infamous meet a couple weeks back!
