It's Hallowhimsy Time!

This lady right here has got the new Hallowhimsies from Whimsical Nail Polish by Pam, you ready to see the goods? I'll keep the talk short!

Boo, Wicked and Once Upon a Time


All the Hallowhimsies are ready to come to a town near you in the Creature Screecher!


Boo! - paired with Pure Ice Kiss Me Here (dupe of China Glaze Recycle with a better formula)


Pam describes Boo! as "Gray-ish, Blue-ish and sheer like a ghost, with pink shimmer" You can absolutely see that shimmer and this polish works on it's own or as a shimmer top coat.


In a darker angled shot, you can see that not only is the shimmer stunning, it also is a duochrome with a shift  from pink to goldish-orange.


My accent/ring finger is Essie No Place Like Chrome - Boo! simply whitened that up and disappeared, so I wouldn't suggest using it over silver! It looks fantastic over the gray polish though!


Here you can really see all of the different shades of shimmer working together. In some lights it even appears to flicker blue.


Yumz! Pam says this can be worn alone, so I will be trying it out that way one day soon!


Next up is Once Upon a Time, worn over Catrice's How I Matt Your Mother, a beautiful dark plum matte polish.


Macro-time! Look at the gorgeous translucency of these satin glitters! Good LORD! 'Halloween Colors with a pastel twist! Lavender and pastel green with micro silver and micro lavender in a clear base'


Formula was fantastic - this application is one coat How I Matt Your Mother followed by one coat of Once Upon a Time.


Application for this polish was fantastic, thin but easy to grab glitters and they came out nice and easy with just the right amount per coat.


I am super in love with the combination of colors and glitters in this. So simple yet beautiful and wearable all year!


How about some matte action? Oh yeah.


Wicked. Yes, this is the standout of the collection. Pam always seems to have that one super special polish that everyone freaks over, and I believe (judging by my informal FB poll) that this is that polish.


How's that for a macro?!  'Matte black and white glitter, red sparkly glitter in an elphaba green base' Sigh. You had me at Elphaba. I am a huge fan of the book Wicked, and it's sequel Son of a Witch. Pam..you pull at my polish heartstrings.


This polish is worn alone here at 3 coats. Plus top coat. No gelous, just top coat and it smoothed out perfect. 


Not too thick or thin, this polish was nice and easy to apply, at first I wasn't getting any of those big round glitters out but then after doing 3 coats, they started coming out 2 and 3 at a time! So no fishing needed here!


The base on this polish is breathtaking, a jelly green with greenish yellow shimmer...I love how it sits atop the glitters - its like a slime sandwich. I mean that as a compliment.


The process of applying a polish like this at 3 coats will take some time. You may want to pair this over a nice green like Spoileds Im So Jaded or Cult Nails Deal With It. This is Wicked Matte.


How do you love those big, black round glitters?! Those are so gonna be the next big thing in Indie polish...I feel it.


Ya'll know I am Pam's biggest fan and cheerleader - she just knows how to make this stuff like she was born with it.  Even after 700+ polishes in my stash, she always makes something unique and ALWAYS makes me stand back and say WOW when I see her new creations.
A bottle will run you $10 and it comes with fantastic customer service and a lot of love.
She takes orders through email - which you can find on her Facebook Page.
