Whimsical Ideas by Pam - Holiday 2018 Collection

Hey there!

Remember me?  I know...I have been MIA for way too long.  But work and traveling got in the way and life was, well, life.  Plus, I was just in a blogging rut.  But I am hoping to get back into the swing of things for a stellar 2019!  So be prepared for a bunch of reviews of older collections in the future as I get through my back log of polishes.

Let's take a look at home new beauties for the holidays from Whimsical Ideas by Pam.  There are some very cute glitters in this collection.  Some can be worn as full manicures and other need undies.  Only one of them screams Christmas but the rest are great for year round wear.

Christmas 2018 - A clear based glitter topper packed with muted green metallic glitters, red holographic glitters and soft, tiny white microflakies.  I paired this Christmas topper with a pale pink base.  The light shade of the green glitters makes this work for other times of the year besides just the holidays.  I am showing you one coat over a colored based with top coat here.

Fa La² - A clear based brassy gold microglitter with pops of red and green glitters.  This is a great Christmas shade!  I like this darker gold shades a lot during the holidays.  They are so shiny.  You could probably use this a topper as well, but I am showing you this as a full mani.  Here is three coats with top coat.  It it pretty smooth, no significant texture.

Seems Like a Dream - A clear based glitter topper with silver holographic hex glitters in all sizes plus three sizes of silver holographic star glitters.  Now these are some cool star glitters!  They are not the traditional 5 pointed stars, they are fancy 4 pointed stars.  I always associated these stars with real stars, twinkling in the sky.  So I paired this topper with a cobalt blue base.  The stars come out very easily and apply nicely.  There is some placement needed with the larger stars.  This is one coat of glitter over the base with top coat.

Eight Nights - A silvery shimmer base packed with tiny glitters in shades of blue along with a golden microshimmer.  I always like Pam's Hannukah polishes.  The glitters in this shade are sparse enough to be worn as a topper but it can cover nicely for a full mani.  The base looks mainly silver but at an angle you will get the golden flashes.  I am showing you three coats with top coat here.

Flurries - A clear based topper with a mix of white shimmers and white shred glitters.  The shreds are all different shades and finishes of white.  They are soft and easy to apply.  I like to wear toppers like this year round.  They just add a little bit of awesome to a cream base with out screaming "hey, look at this glitter!"  I am showing you one coat over purple bases with top coat.

Times Square - A clear based glitter topper packed with holographic square glitters and bits of microglitters in a rainbow of colors.  This topper really does remind me of Times Square on New Years Eve.  Even though I have never been there for NYE before, I have always wanted to go.  When they release all that confetti into the street...it seems magical.  I paired this with a dark grey base.  One coat over the base with top coat here.
