Happy weekend!! I've got a brand to share with you today that has long been on my "must try" list! When Gloss48 asked me to work with them I jumped at the chance to try Floss Gloss!
Floss Gloss on Gloss48 starts Wednesday, November 5th at 11am and runs through Wednesday, November 12th at 11am.

Floss Gloss
  • Floss Gloss was founded in 2009 in San Francisco by Aretha Sack and Janine Lee who formed the nail crew Floss Gloss after many sleepless nights of painting and polish mixing, rap bumping and girl-time talking.  Deemed Floss Gloss for nails that ‘Flossed and Glossed like a Boss’.
  • Gloss48 will be featuring the entire Floss Gloss Fall Collection - a 14 color set - for $90 (reg $112) here:
  • Gloss48 will also be featuring Floss Gloss trios for $20 (reg $24):

Floss Gloss Wet with Floss Gloss Dimepiece circular gradient

Floss Gloss Wet - the original Floss Gloss color, an electric turquoise creme. This shade is just WOW. Not my favorite formula, it took three coats to cover up patchy spots and it's not very self leveling. You'll need a top coat for sure. But after top coat everything smooths out and you are left with this gorgeous color pop.
Floss-Gloss-Wet-Dimepiece-circular-gradient-Nail-Art
Floss Gloss Dimepiece - holographic silver glitter. I used the brush from the bottle (oh how I adore the bottles!) to dab on Dimepiece. Fairly easy to achieve this look and I really couldn't stop staring at my nails while this was on!

Floss-Gloss-Honey-Gangsta-Boo-gradient-Nail-Art
Floss Gloss Gansta Boo - classic red. Excellent creme/jelly formula, opaque in 2 coats, dries to a high gloss finish.
Floss-Gloss-Honey-Gangsta-Boo-gradient-Nail-Art
Floss Gloss Honey - holographic bronze glitter. I dabbed this down the center of the nail using the brush from the bottle and created a gradient effect out the sides.

Love how these paired up.

Floss-Gloss-Stun-Blood, Suede and Tears-gradient-Nail-Art
Floss Gloss Blood, Suede and Tears - a blood orange brown with a jelly/creme finish. I needed 3 coats for opacity, good formula.
Floss-Gloss-Stun-Blood, Suede and Tears-gradient-Nail-Art
Floss Gloss Stun - holographic gold glitter. A stunner for sure! So easy to create this look! I wanted to revisit the glitter middle gradient I did back in Feb. and this glitter is perfect for it. Again, I just dabbed it on using the brush from the bottle.

Floss-Gloss-95% Angel-Donatella-Mrs-Tony-Montana-gradient-Nail-Art
Floss Gloss Mrs. Tony Montana - a cool opaque white creme Donatella - bronze crème with rose-gold micro-shimmer  95% Angel - periwinkle creme
Floss-Gloss-95% Angel-Donatella-Mrs-Tony-Montana-gradient-Nail-Art
I started this watermarble with Mrs. Tony Montana which is super pigmented, like white out, and is opaque in 2 coats. Then I watermarbled with 95% Angel, Donatella and a clear top coat (to allow the white base to show).
Floss-Gloss-95% Angel-Donatella-Mrs-Tony-Montana-gradient-Nail-Art
I intentionally wanted each nail to have a different pattern. I kept seeing in my mind a fab dress from the 60's here. Oh and did you notice the middle nail...looks a bit well...double watermarbled? That's because I dipped that finger in twice by mistake! Talk about being distracted, right? Anyway, I didn't dislike it enough to do it over. lol

I'm quite pleased with how all of these turned out and thrilled with Floss Gloss! Looking forward to adding to my collection!
