Pams & Kin - Made in America

Happy Memorial Day to all. It is a bittersweet time for us to reflect on those men and women who have served and given their lives in the United States Armed Forces. I don't have any work or classes today as it is a federal holiday, so it is a time for me to relax, and I hope many of you are able to do the same.

For the holiday, I decided to dress up my previous manicure of Zoya's Carey. To do this, I've used a polish called Made in America, made by Pams & Kin.

This beautiful polish is a clear base with red, white, and blue glitter in it, and a hint of superfine holographic pieces to give it that extra sparkle. The red appears to be tiny hex glitter, the blue tiny circles, and the white glitter is square.

I applied one generous coat of Made in America over Zoya's Carey, and topped it with a coat of Seche Vite. I also applied the SV pretty liberally, so it came out smooth and glossy! I was considering doing two coats of Made in America, but I didn't want to go overboard. Perhaps I should have done a really thick, glittery accent nail at least, but ah well, next time.

All in all, application was very easy, as the polish is not too thick, but holds enough glitter that you don't have to glob it on your nails. It's such a beautiful and patriotic glitter, and I will probably be reaching for it again when the 4th of July comes around! 

If you would like to buy Made in America, you can find it on Pams & Kin's Etsy page. It's $14 per bottle, however, 50% of the proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. I think this is not only a lovely polish, but it also supports a wonderful cause.


  1. I think I might need this polish! I keep looking at it but never buy! :)

    1. It's pretty great! My camera really doesn't focus on glitter correctly, but it's very pretty with the perfect hint of holo :) I figured it was patriotic but not too overboard (I'll save that for the 4th of July!)


I would love to hear your feedback!
I read every single comment :)
