Hello Loves! If you follow Madam Glam, you probably know they just added a ton of new colors to their gel polish line. I have 11 of them to show you today. Ready to see them? Of course you are.
First up is this gorgeous dark red cream with brown undertones called Very Chic. It is opaque in two coats but has an almost jelly finish that would be perfect for sandwiching.
Carmine Pink is a peachy pink with a frosty silver shimmer. She is also opaque in two coats, though I found a very thin third coat helps even out the brush strokes in the shimmer.
If you like Carmine Pink but prefer a pinker tone, True Story is your color! They are very similar in finish with True Story being just a tad frostier. True Story is also opaque in two.
Clean Slate is a gorgeous blue leaning teal with an ultrafine silver shimmer. Yep, you guessed it...another two coater. I ended up taking these photos with my phone to get the color right, so I apologize for the lower quality images.
Flawless is, well, flawless! This soft baby pink has a subtle silver shimmer that adds a super romantic flare. I did find that I needed three thin coats for full coverage with this one.
Did someone say full coverage gold glitter? It's Not you, It's Me is exactly that. The glitter in this polish is super fine - almost a shimmer - and it offers full coverage in two to three coats. This is an amazing accent color for fall!
Hello bright and beautiful Neon Lime Green! This super vibrant neon green is opaque in two to three coats and really pops. I had to use my cell phone to capture it, and I couldn't bring myself to take it off when I swatched it! So be sure to check out my nail art using this color at the end of the post in case you missed it on facebook or instagram.
Pure Cloud is a soft, pastel blue cream with awesome coverage in two coats. This is the color I think of when I think baby boy.
Sparkly Topaz is one of my absolute favorites in this group of swatches. This wine toned shimmer almost has a metallic shine and is perfect for fall. In some lighting it appears more red and in others it has a purple tone. Gorgeous!
That Thin Line is what I would call a caramel latte shade. It appears more yellow on my skin tone but is more beige in the bottle. I'm not a huge fan of this one simply because it doesn't look very nice on me, but the coverage is awesome in two coats and it would be beautiful on someone with a different skin tone.
Finally, Twilight Lilac is a dusty lilac purple cream. Yep, she's opaque in two coats. I didn't think I would like this one as much when I saw it in the bottle, but I find that I really love it on my nails. Its like nude meets purple but with color. (And yes, I know that made absolutely no sense at all...but I'm sure you get what I mean. lol)
Ok, so as I mentioned above, I just couldn't get past Neon Lime Green. You see, we watched the Ghost Busters movies the other night and Slimer apparently decided to haunt me. And you have to admit that this green is perfect for slime! So I broke out my Wildflowers Nail Art Paints and added the black to create slime drips. I thin thinned my white and added a few accents to the resulting slime areas. Slimer is freehand with acrylic paints and I then added Neon Lime Green accents to bring him back up to the brightness of the other nails. Finally, I used my Akzentz Lights Out to add some glow in the dark action over Slimer and the Neon Lime Green Drips. The glow made Slimer look a little fuzzy, but I still adore how he turned out!
Here's a glow shot. Pretty fun, right? Sadly, I didn't get to wear it for long. The glow action freaked out the Two Foot Terrorist (aka my 2 year old son) in the middle of the night. Such a shame. But at least I have pictures! lol
That wraps up my new Madam Glam swatches! I also learned the Madam Glam has polish matches for several of their gel polish colors. I have a few of the polishes to play with and will show you those soon. :) As always, you can pick up these colors and many more at www.MadamGlam.com.
