Pams & Kin Swatches!

As promised yesterday, I have a few Pams & Kin polishes to show off!  I took advantage of their recent sale and bought my very first colors from this line.  I’ve been really interested in exploring the less glittery side of indies lately, and these did not disappoint!

I chose Audrey, Start the Revolution and Only Ashes, and was surprised with Bruised when I got my package!  All 3 of these are just lovely.  Application was a tiny bit thick with Audrey,  but absolutely perfect with the other two.  All were opaque in 2 coats and didn’t require much cleanup.

First up is Audrey, Start the Revolution!

This is a gorgeous shade of Tiffany blue.  The bottle is filled with a stunning blue and pink shimmer, but sadly they weren’t as noticeable on the nail.  They were still there, though!  Just not quite as prominent and really didn’t want to show up for my camera.

This is 2 coats of Audrey with 1 coat of Poshe topcoat.  The application was a little tricky because this one was a bit thicker than the others, but it wasn’t anything difficult to work with.

Next I have Only Ashes!

This was my favorite of the trio!  I am in love with greys this fall, and this is a beautiful one!  It’s a smoky grey color filled with a strong pink and blue shimmer.  This was very noticeable on the nail, as you can see in the pictures!

Application was great and everything went on smoothly and easily.  The photos show 2 coats with 1 coat of Poshe topcoat.

Finally, I have Bruised!

This is a beautiful dark blurple shade filled with a strong pink-purple shimmer.

Like Only Ashes, this one went on beautifully.  I would highly reccomend a base coat though!  I always use a base coat so I had no staining, but in the areas of skin that required a bit of cleanup, there was some residual blue.  Better safe than sorry with these super dark colors!  Photos show 2 coats with Poshe topcoat.

You can find Pams & Kin on Facebook here, and check out their Etsy store here.  Be sure to look at all their lovely creations!

Full size bottles are typically $10.00 USD, though they can sometimes be higher (if the polish is a holo, for instance).
