WHIMSICAL IDEAS BY PAM: Peanut Butter and Jelly, Nimbus

Pin It Today I have 2 Whmisical Ideas by Pam polishes to swatch and review for you, YAY!



Whimsical Ideas by Pam Peanut Butter and Jelly & Nimbus
If you haven't checked out this Indie line, you need to! Since Nerd Lacquer has gone MIA, Whimsical Ideas by Pam has moved up to #1 on my Indie brand favorites list. Take a jump to see the rest of the post and find out why!!

Here's a better bottle shot where you actually see the polishy goodness!

Yummmm, yes please! As you guys read above, when Nerd Lacquer was still operating, that was my #1 Indie brand, I loved the colors, the formula ect. Whimsical Ideas has moved up to that #1 spot on my list. I find that her polishes are the most unique Indies (debatable, I know), the formula is outstanding, and the glitter coverage in 1 coat is even more outstanding!

Let me show you what I mean. Here is Peanut Butter and Jelly:

WHY on earth I put this off and didn't buy this the 1st time I ordered - the world may never know! If you have had second thoughts on ordering PB&J - order. it. now. You won't regret ordering it! Just NOT ordering it, like me haha.

PB&J is a super grape jelly (duh) colored base with medium gold hex glitter, small gold square glitter and smaller gold micro glitter. I LOVE instant jelly sandwich (haha...sandwich, peanut butter and jelly haha) polishes! This was 2 coats, flawless and effortlessly 2 coats. This is why I LOVE Whimsical Ideas by Pam, I never have to dip and dab glitter. It brushes on the nail perfectly every time! This polish also has a great drying time :] Now I wanna make a PB&J sandwich - with grape jelly, duh!

Next is Nimbus:

I threw Nimbus in there because it wasn't something I was dying for but I didn't want to just order one Whimsical Ideas polish. Welp, I'm glad I did because it's pretty as ....well you know! ;] Above is 1 coat over Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue. This is a Harry Potter reference in this polish, isn't it? Bahah - I haven't read HP since... high school so I'm pitching in the dark here!

Enough rambling: Nimbus is a super pretty, glittery, shimmery polish! This is a polish with a base made up of what looks like tiny silver, almost iridescent, flakies and silver shimmer. There are also tiny silver and copper glitters, small copper and silver hex glitter, medium silver and copper hex glitter ANDDDDD super awesome silver bar glitter! (I'm a major sucker for bar glitter *sigh*)

I hope those glitters are correct! I've been sitting here staring at my nail for about 10 minutes about 3 inches away from my eye lmao. The base was a lot more complex than I thought it was after I saw it in direct light then out of direct light. So it HAD to be studied ;]

Ok I'm rambling again hahahahahahah! But seriously guys, these polishes are both beautiful and unique. If you're interested in purchasing polishes from Whimsical Ideas by Pam please visit her Facebook for more information! Each bottle is $10, and she ships super fast!

Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

Until Monday,
Lacey

  1. Great post! I love PB&J, it just looks so pretty. I haven't tried Nimbus though. I wish I liked bar glitter as much as you do! For some reason it never seems to stay put where I want it to on my short nails.

  6. Pam has created so many lemmings! It's amazing how opaque PB&J is with just two coats--it's definitely one of my must-haves!
