Whimsical Ideas by Pam Camp Whimsy Collection Swatches


Hi guys! Hope you're all having a good weekend so far! Anyone doing anything fun? It's the last weekend of the OC Fair so I'm probably going to head over to get one last bit of bad for you, but delicious, food. I require moar funnel cake nom nom nom!

Today I have the Camp Whimsy Collection for Summer from Whimsical Ideas by Pam to share with you! Pam has put out 6 new polishes for summer, it's full of fun glitter toppers and jelly sandwich looking glitters! Check out all the swatches after the jump!



20 Pounds of Middle is a mix of matte white glitter in a clear base. I love all the different shapes of glitter in here, everything from hearts to rectangles and circle. The formula was good, it was easy to get the shaped glitter out. I did find it best dab this one on for even glitter coverage. I used 1 coat over LCN Fiery Cumin for the photos below, both photos are in the shade.





Here Comes The Sun is neon yellow, green and pink glitter in a clear base. Pretty perfect for summer, I don't think I will ever tire of neon glitter! The formula was really nice, it wasn't thick and the glitter payoff was great! I decided to layer this over a dark color to really pop the glitter, I love how it turned out! I used 1 coat over Essie After School Boy Blazer for the photos below.

Lil Sister is white, periwinkle and pink glitter in a clear base. I love how soft and feminine this one looks, especially over a light girly pink! The formula was good but the glitter was a bit sparse. I found it easiest to put the bottle upside down for a few minutes before using it then dabbing on the glitter for the best coverage. I used 2 coats over Morgan Taylor Make Me Blush for the photos below.

Pippin is small blue and pink glitter along with big blue circle glitter in a clear base. This was one of my favorites as soon as I saw the bottles, you all know how I feel about circle glitter! I have to say, this was much better in person, it wasn't photographing as pretty as it looked in person. The formula was good, I did have a to fish a little bit for the circle but they are pretty abundant in the polish so it was easy to fish them out. I used 1 coat over LCN Blue Oasis for the photos below.

P.S. I keep wanting to call this Pimpin...haha!

Tink is a green jelly base with iridescent glitter. A jelly sandwich in a bottle! Being a Disney fan I quite like the name of this and I think it fits Tinkerbell pretty well! The formula was a little bit on the thick side but easy to apply. I would recommend waiting a few minutes between coats do you don't drag the polish off. I used 3 coats for full opacity for the photos below.

Too Many Princesses is a pink jelly base with iridescent glitter. This is a surprise favorite for me, it was pretty in the bottle but it really came to life on the nail. I love the glitter Pam put in this one, it gave it so much depth. The formula was good, not thick and easy to apply. This was a bit on the sheer side for me, I used 3 coats for full opacity. If you have shorter nails than I do 2 coats would probably work fine for you!

Overall I really like this collection, there is a little bit of something for every lover of glitter! My personal favorites are Here Comes The Sun and Too Many Princesses!

The Camp Whimsy Collection is available now, visit the Whimsical Ideas by Pam Facebook page to order. Each polish is $10 and I believe Pam only ships within the US.

  2. I really like Lil' Sister and 20 Pounds Of Middle. Periwinkle is my favorite color, so my eyes drew to Lil' Sister right away. It's a shame that the pink squares were so sparse, they really add a much-needed pop of color.
    20 Pounds Of Middle would look great over dark colors. Or neon colors- that would be fun & summery! I'm very curious about the name though..It sounds like something someone would say if they lost weight :) Plus the fact that it's all white (like fat). How cool would it be if the side effect of wearing this polish was "20 pounds of middle"? Sign me up! LOL!

  6. So no magicical weight loss will come from wearing that polish? Darn....lol!
    Beautiful colors through. This is the kind of collection that can easily be worn all year long. They're very light and summery, without being in-your-face summery. :)
