Hello Loves! I have eight gorgeous Gel Polish shades from Madam Glam to show you today. These are the newest additions to the Madam Glam line, and they do not disappoint. The more I swatch from the Madam Glam Gel Polish line, the more in love I become. Seriously, the formula rocks and the shimmers...oh my!
Ready to see them? First up is one of my personal favorites. Milkyway (#960) is a dark, silvery grey with green undertones. Yeah, grey isn't that exciting, but this one offers perfect coverage in two coats and is loaded with iridescent rainbow shimmer! My standard swatch pose with the bottle doesn't quite capture it, but you can see the sparkle better in the second shot.
And because I swear I'm not crazy, how about a brush shot that really shows the dimension? She's so freaking pretty! Madam Glam has absolutely nailed it with these iridescent rainbow shimmers.
Fairy Tale (#329) is a versatile, dusty grey shade with lavender undertones. This one is also loaded with gorgeous shimmer and is a two coater. I adore these finishes. They're frosty and metallic, but not streaky like many frosts.
Here's another brush shot. So richly pigmented!
Ready to see some color? Bombshell (#162) is a dusty pink base that is loaded with glittery shimmer. It appears frosty on the nail, but applies smoothly without streaks in the shimmer. Like most of the gel polishes in the Madam Glam line, Bombshell is nearly opaque in one careful coat and absolutely opaque in two coats.
Here's a brush shot that really shows the dimension of the shimmer. It's not really needed for this color since the nail shots show it fairly well, but I took one anyway.
If you prefer your pinks a little bolder, check out Glamorous (#327). Glamorous has the same dense silver shimmer as Bombshell, but in a much pinker base. This one is a true classic with a kick and a two coat formula.
These brush shots make me really happy for some reason. I might start adding them to all my posts :)
Speaking of shimmer, how about a deep purple shimmer in a blackened purple base? Shimmer Lavender (#238) is just that. And, y'all, she's another perfect two coater!
Sandy Sparkles (#061) is a bit different from the others in this group. This is a beautiful, peachy orange jelly base that is loaded with shimmer and small holographic glitters. I did find that I needed three coats for full opacity, but it's totally worth it. Keep in mind that my coats are thinner than the coats most people apply, so it may still be a two coater for you. She's absolutely stunning though!
You can see the jelly base better in this brush shot.
Sparkling Hearts (#325) is similar to Sandy Sparkles with a jelly base, but she's pink! Sparkling Hearts also has multiple sizes of silver holographic glitters and she sparkles like crazy. I also needed three coats for full coverage with this one, but I wore it for a while and strangers kept grabbing my hand for a better look. lol
Finally, Stardust (#117) might be the most amazing polish in this post. We're talking full coverage glitter in two thin coats! I am beyond in love with this golden jelly base that is loaded with golden shimmer and two sizes of silver holographic glitters. The result is a full coverage gold glitter polish with slightly silver tones...if that even makes sense. Ah heck, just look at her!
I'm not going to lie...as soon as I pulled the brush out the bottle, I knew Stardust was destined to be used in a St. Patrick's Day mani. And I have the perfect Madam Glam shade to pair her with - Glittery Emerald (swatched here)! The glitter at the moons was a bit of an afterthought, so it's not as smooth as it could be application wise, but this mani has been hugely popular. I've been wearing it for a few days now and no less than 7 students from other departments have stopped by my station and asked if I will do their nails after seeing it. :) This makes the second mani using these new shades that has stopped people in their tracks.
Seriously, if you haven't tried a Madam Glam Gel Polish yet, you have to try it! With over 350 gel polish swatches under my belt, it takes a lot to impress me these days. It really does (and it's kind of sad, but that's a topic for another day). Sure, I have my favorite brands and gush over them, but Madam Glam blows my socks off. I want all of the colors! Of course, you don't have to take it from me. Just check out Andrea's Madam Glam review on Chickettes. She was downright giddy over the formula. When we are both this excited over a brand, you know it has to be golden.
Be sure to check out my Madam Glam Swatch Gallery to see the other Madam Glam Gel Polishes I have swatched so far. Eventually, I hope to swatch them all!
And yes, I know...$19.95 a bottle is a bit on the high end for gel polish, but they're totally worth it. Even so, you don't have to pay that much. Just use code YGEL30OFF at checkout on MadamGlam.com for 30% off and you'll get them for $13.97 each. That's not much more than a mini bottle of Gelish. ;)
