Whimsical Ideas by Pam In the Whole Wide World

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Valentine's day! Not the biggest fan of the holiday tbh, but I do tend to take it as another day to remind the people I care about of my love for them! Even though they should know it already hehe! I hope you're all having a good week so far!

Today I'm showing you what I'm actually wearing, which is a nice change. I got awesome nail mail yesterday from two of my favourite people, Anastasia and Jen. It was excellent, I'm lucky to have such wonderful friends. :) In my package from Jen was my first order of Whimsical Ideas by Pam polishes - after Jen posted swatches of the Valentine's day collection, I knew I couldn't resist ordering any longer. Sadly, Pam doesn't ship internationally, but Jen was lovely enough to let me send the order to her instead! I got six polishes that I'll hopefully be sharing in the next bit... they're seriously gorgeous!

So of course, I decided to wear In the Whole Wide World first. One, it's gorgeous, and two, I don't really do Valentine's day manicures (not my thing lol) and I really wasn't feeling wearing pink or red, so I figured I'd compromise by using a glitter that had hearts in it. That sort of counts, right? Jen is also helping me in my attempt to find the perfect minty polish, so I had to try one out... this is Zoya Neely. I'm actually quite keen on it, it still makes my hands look a bit lobster-y in photos but it's not noticeable at all in person, really! Yay!

Neely is super nice - I was expecting the formula to be a bit of a nightmare but it was great in two coats, self-levelling and ready to go. In the Whole Wide World gave me a bit of trouble but that's to be expected with shape glitters, I think. I just wanted more hearts! Also, in my photos it looks like there's black glitter in it... there isn't, it's pink/holographic glitter but for some reason my camera didn't see that. Sorry!

So, this is two coats of Neely with one and a half coats of In the Whole Wide World - I did the first coat by painting normally and went back and dabbed hearts wherever I wanted them haha.

This is Neely on its own. Again, not as lobster-y irl. Such a nice colour!

That's it from me today! What do you guys think? Do you own any Whimsicals yet? I want all of them now, honestly. I can't wait to wear them!

You can find out more ordering information by visiting Pam's Facebook page. The polishes are $10 each and you have to email her to place your order. As I mentioned above, as of right now Pam ships within the US only.

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!


  1. I LOVE In the Whole Wide World... especially over Neely! I think you just convinced me to get it. Cute manicure, it's perfect for today =)

  2. That's a really cute glitter! I love the hearts.

  3. I don't own any whimsicals but I really like this combo. Neely looks really good!

  4. I love this combo. The hearts are perfect for valentines without too much pink

  5. Love this. I just ordered my first Whimsicals in Peacock Park and Peanut Butter and Jelly. Have you tried Essie's Mint Candy Apple? It is my favorite mint color.
