Floss Gloss Brand Review and swatches

Hey guys! Today I have yet another brand review as I continue to work through my stash and untried! These 2 Floss Gloss polishes were a gift from a friend :) This is my first experience with Floss Gloss so I wanted to do a full post on them.  Look how completely awesome the packaging is! Those shiny gold caps! Heart eyes. I've been wanting some for years :)

Floss Gloss is a small boutique brand available online only (as far as I know, I could be wrong). They retail around $8 for 5.5 ml. for reference, standard OPI (and most mainstream brands) bottles are 15 ml and most minis are 3.75ml. So they are closer to a mini sized polish for $8. That's a little high to me, but maybe not for a boutique brand.

Here is a look at the wand and brush. The wand is really short-because the cap is so tall and the bottle is so short. That presented a bit of a challenge to me. The brush is short and flat, and perfect. It's very similar to what the European Essie brushes are like. Why can't we get those here, dangit! I love flat brushes the most, so that's a major plus for me!

Here's a look at the relative size of the bottle compared to some more well known varieties.

This is Picnic, a brick maroon red. Guys, the formula on this is AMAZING. Easy to control and it practically applied itself! I was seriously impressed. And obviously, I love maroon, even though this one leans a little more brown I still love!

The second polish I have is a topper so I just applied it right over. It's called Selena Corpus Crystalina (long name!) It's a clear polish with white and holographic particles. The glitter payoff  is ok, it needed more than one coat. This is more like one and a half. Of course, you can use as little or as much as you want with toppers!

All in all, I am really impressed with these polishes! I think the price is a little high and the wand is short, those are really my only negative comments. The formula is amazing and if I catch them having a sale I will definitely pick up some more! Probably some pinks and blues ;) I just can't with the packaging....its so cute! 


  1. They have some good sales. I picked up a large collection a year or two ago and was very happy with them. You need Wet and Wave Pool!

  2. In my local community it seems more and more entrepreneurs are on the scene, but their start-ups keep failing within a year. I can’t help but think some of this has to do with their jumbled company names. I don’t know how to even pronounce a lot of them and most don’t seem to relate to the consumer at all. I just found out that there are name branding agencies like this
    that will come up with names you can actually spell and pronounce.
