Glam Polish Pacman

*press sample
Hi friends!!  Ahhhh the weekend....  I try to avoid kicking my posts off with statements like such, but my gosh, yesterday was trying, in part because of folks I spoke with who likely had no idea they sounded the way they sounded.  C and I watched some Office reruns last night, and one of the episodes featured one of many priceless Michael Scott quotes-- "I don't understand how anyone can have so little self awareness."  (Priceless when taken in context.  If you've never seen The Office, you are seriously missing out.)  It fit my communications from the day so hilariously and perfectly.  Coming home to awesome nail mail always helps matters, too.  I've got a completely beautiful set of fall cremes on deck that I'm very excited to wear and to talk about, and my first bottle of HK Girl Glisten & Glow topcoat arrived yesterday, too.  I have high hopes for this one.  But first, I've got another fabulous Glam Polish creation to show you all.

This is Pacman, another beaut from the Fun and Games collection.
 
Glam Polish Pacman

Pacman is another creme-jelly hybrid with matte glitter, a style Glam is remarkably good at creating.  This one is a medium toned purple leaning periwinkle, a shade notoriously difficult to capture accurately on camera.  I'll be honest and say that this post from Ten Little Nubs contains a much more accurate representation of the base color than I could come up with.  There's a lot going on in this polish and the glitter used is similar to that of Glam Polish Leapfrog, which I posted earlier this week.  I'll try to say this in an accurate size scale.  Pacman's got three different sizes of white circle glitter ranging from very small to specklike, small and medium yellow, spring green, and hot pink hexes, and a few large spring green hexes interspersed.

After now having tried four Glams, I feel I can safely say the formula is consistent-- the "crelly" makes for a little bit sheer look and three coats is optimal for reducing visible nail line.  It also gives these polishes the most awesome looking depth and Pacman is one of the coolest in the Glam lineup.  It applies nicely, with a slightly thin consistency that allows the glitters to evenly distribute.  The tiny white specs are somewhat textured so the polish on its own will be a little on the rough side, but two coats of a nice, thick topcoat (like Seche Vite) will smooth the finish out perfectly.  You might notice the large green hex on my ring finger; it most certainly isn't a major, or even a minor, curl, but it isn't laying flat, either.  It's a very small chink in the armor of an otherwise fantastic polish.

  1. This is so cute...and the colors, especially the blue, are spot-on for Pac-Man. I should know, because I had - YES - a 1982 Atari system, and played Pac-Man until my hands ached from gripping that joystick. :D Beautiful photos...you capture crelly finishes like I've never seen. <3

    1. Atari, NIIIICE!! I've never played the original and I never could get the hang of a joystick. Good to know about the colors, too, because in my limited and inaccurate experience with Ms. Pacman on playstation, I couldn't see the relevancy (but I figured I was missing some vital info). And thank you very much for the loverly compliment ♥

    1. I need to look up the old game, just to see. And I agree, it is a very pretty color :)

  3. If I had just heard this described, I would have thought for sure it wasn't for me. But I really love it! Perhaps that's the awesome swatching--who's to say? :)

    1. That's the thing about this particular line-- they're not my style, like, at all, but looking at them, especially on, just makes me happy :) And they're so nicely done, too.

  4. Oh what a great glitter, love it on you!!!! This Blue is one of my favorite hues and those colored glitters so vivacious!!! I have to admit I am not familiar with Pac Man but then I don't need to know more Pac Man than this polish ;-)!!! I unfortunately couldn't order with Color4Nails - no shipping options for me - oh well, I will admire the polishes they offer on your nails :-)

    1. You're kidding! I thought she shipped worldwide. The blue is actually more of a periwinkle... my photos are a little deceptive but I linked to a gal who shows a fairly accurate depiction of it. Re. Pacman, I'm somewhat familiar but I still couldn't draw any conclusions... Melissa says it's spot-on, so I'll take her word for it and agree with your statement that you don't need to know more than the polish :) :)

  5. This is so beautiful! The Office reruns make me sad because the show is over, but I still load up on a few each weekend just to get my fix. Thank goodness for Netflix!

    1. Ah, it is over, we couldn't decide. We haven't had network tv for a few years so we're a bit out of the loop :) But yeah, it is so very entertaining. We go on marathon series sprees and we're been staying up entirely too late watching The Office for going on two weeks now, lol.

  7. I thiiink between this and Leapfrog, Pac Man is ever so slightly in the lead... I'm not quite sure why; maybe it's simply because I don't have a crelly quite like this and the base of Leapfrog reminds me of Liquid Lacquer's Collide into You?
    Whatever! I think your photos are capturing the same color as Ten Little Nubs... and GAH that 3rd photo *swoon* SO glossy and happy! ;-) You're making me want this one too!! Not good! :P

    1. I'm with you. I like the base of this one better, it's just a little squishier and a little glossier. I had to look up the Liquid and yes, the bases do look similar! You're a veritable indie encyclopedia, girlie :) You should do some sort of indie series with all your knowledge. And thank you for the compliment ♥ The base is more periwinkle than cornflower, though.
