Whimsical Ideas By Pam - Hatched

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I finally have for you the manicure I had initially planned to wear on Easter. Didn't work out that way due to lack of time but shortly after the holidays I finally put this nail polish on. This is another indie polish called Hatched made by Pam from Whimsical Ideas. I am in love with her creation, it is perfect for Spring.

If you've been reading my blog for a little while you may know that I recently fell in love with all those independent nail polish creations that pop up everywhere. I can't exactly tell why but somehow I prefer those over the big brands' polishes at the moment. They're so funky and different from what I've seen so far. 
Surfing the web for more of those polishes I stumbled upon nail polishes called Whimsical Ideas By Pam and I instantly fell in love with her glittery creations. Hatched is one of the three polishes I got in my first order and it didn't fail to amaze me! Pam describes this as a "banana yellow jelly base with pastel glitter". I'd say the base is somewhere between jelly and creme as it is not as translucent as a jelly but not opaque enough to be a creme. There is fuchsia, lavender and pale pink hex glitter as well as small pastel blue, green and pink glitter. My bottle contained some large shards of mylar glitter and I don't know if it is supposed to be in there because it feels a little of of place (and sticks out everywhere, that is why I do not like this kind of glitter). 
The formula is really nice to work with, not too thin or too thick and you get a good amount of glitter on the brush without having to fish for it. Here I used two coats and you can still see some nail line poking out, but I like it that way. I also love how the glitter gets sandwiched in between the coats but is still visible. This way you get a glitter sandwich without having to layer two polishes :D
And I have to mention how it wore! I used Essie Help Me Grow as my base and one coat of INM Out The Door as a top coat. I wrapped my tips with both polish and top coat and after four days I cannot see any obvious tipwear, cracks or chips! So I could have worn this longer but I think it is time for a new manicure by now ;)

If you would like to see more of Pam's polishes visit her Facebook page. There you can also contact her and place an order. She sells them for $10 a full-size bottle and ships internationally.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your Sunday!

  1. That's a very sweet polish! Who knew something with a yellow base could look that pretty?
    And I agree on the indie polish brands. It sucks that suspension base is low in supply.
    Have a great NY trip!
