Whimsical Ideas by Pam-Seuss

Before you say anything.....I know it has been done before.  probably more times than I will mention here so I am sorry if I miss giving credit to anyone else but these are two nail artists that I LOVE and follow closely.  I saw Jacki from Adventures in Acetone do this combination with Whimsical's Seuss and I saw Sammy at The Nailasaurus do this combination for a nail art competition.  I decided to join the two together. 


Pam from "Whimsical Ideas by Pam" is an amazing polish designer.  She also has great customer service and a laid back attitude that makes the polish buying process a great one.  You e-mail her your order, she puts you in the que after she receives your e-mail and fills them in that order.  You know when your order is up because you get invoiced, you know when it's filled because you get a shipping notice.  And the bottle is just so darn cute. This is how it comes......

Now, for all the nail art enthusiasts out there who feel that they are not good at nail art.  I am not either.  Sometimes I come up with unique ideas but a lot of times I get inspired by people who are so much better than I will ever be at nail art.  This was incredibly simple....take a closer look.



There is actually very little to it.  Just takes patience.  Let's take a closer look at this amazingly cool nail polish....


Now, I first attempted to just apply it with no base color but I felt the color needed to pop because I wanted the end result to be more cartoonish so I used one coat of Avon's Vintage Blue.  This is a great tip...I buy cheaper polish like Avon and frequently will use it as underwear or in nail art.  That way you can use extra on a little palette (or a plate like I use) and you won't be worried about using up something you really love.  Also, Avon applies fantastic, most of the creams in only one coat. Here is a close up...


Lots of medium hex glitters and smaller red hex glitters and tiny silver glitters mixed in.  Applied smoothly with no need to place the glitters individually or fish for them out of the bottle.  This was two coats.
