Pam's Girly Bits Swatches

Disclosure: The polishes in the following post were provided to me for review.

Hi guys, I have some Pam's Girly Bits polish to show you today! Pam is a lovely lady from Canada who custom mixes her own polish for sale. She recently asked me if I would be interested in reviewing her polishes, and I was very happy that she considered me! I feel like a grown-up blogger now, haha.

If you are interested in purchasing her polishes, please check out Pam's Girly Bits for more information.


Here are the polishes Pam sent me (mostly in the mini size!):



Stormy Skies - 3 coats




Quick comp to help you get an idea of the colour


Notes - beautiful colour and pretty microglitter; reminded me a bit of some of BBC's older polishes. It dries a little satiny and needs topcoat, also like those BBCs. I found the formula on this one to be a little thicker than the others, but nothing I can't handle ;) I might add a couple drops of thinner next time I use it.

Sailors Delight - 2 coats




Comparison with MAC Imperial Flower, one of my fave oranges


Notes - DAMN. This is right up my alley. This has a gorgeous formula. It's very close to the MAC polish, except Pam's has way prettier and has larger glassflecks in it. *drooling* I don't have China Glaze Orange Marmalade, but I think this is redder. I haven't seen ChG Riveting in person yet, but it seems similar as well. I think the name is so cute, too.

Razzle Dazzle - 2 coats




Notes - Wow! I thought this would take a lot more coats! It's really pretty on the nail! I used 1 coat of SV, but as it started to dry down a bit, I noticed a bit of texture, so I would go with another coat of something to smooth it out :D

Hippity Hop - 1 coat over black




Notes - the shimmer in this polish reminds me of CND Sapphire Sparkle. Very pretty, kind of like instant galaxy nails.


Cosmic Ocean - 1 coat over CND Midnight Sapphire




with bounced flash


Notes - I believe this is the blue-green colour morphing pigment. I had a hard time getting the shift to photograph correctly, but hopefully you get the idea. The formula is very smooth and it does not dry cloudy or dull, which is nice!

January Morning - 1 coat over 3 coats Essie Marshmallow




January Morning - 1 coat over 2 coats Essie Sag Harbor




Notes - Very nice formula and very pretty. Has a very sweet meaning to Pam.

Promise Me - 3 coats




Notes - very complex pink shade, here! The base colour sort of reminds me of OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender. The formula was really nice and easy to work with. I think the colour is a tad cool for my skintone, but I really appreciate the depth in this one. DBF loves it, of course.


Hope this post helps you guys! And thanks again, Pam, for letting me try out your polishes! :)

  7. Fabulous swatches and reviews - Pam Heil has got a winning brand on her hands, and I expect every colour she produces to fly off her shelves.
