Today, I have some new gel polishes to share with you! They’re from Madam Glam, and these shades are absolutely gorgeous! So, let’s get the polish swatch started!
The first shade is called Mimosa. Mimosa is a bright sunflower colour. It’s well pigmented and it self levels like a boss!
In case you’re wondering, self levelling is related to how flowing the polish is. If the polish is nice and flowing, it’ll create less brush streaks and bumps on the polished surface. On the other hand, a thick polish consistency (typically in highly pigmented polishes) requires some application skills and more time for the polish surface to even out on its own. So, the well pigmented, flowing polishes are the best to work with!
In my photos the colour looks like a very bright “warning” yellow. But in person, it has a slight hint of orange that makes it really like a sunflower colour.
As I mentioned before, the polish is well pigmented and the consistency is nice and smooth. I’ve applied three thin layers to achieve the opacity in the photos.
Next up is called Silver Magic. Silver Magic has a load of micro silver glitter and it shows a scattered HOLO effect under direct light. The consistency is slightly on the thick side, but it spreads easily over the nail. It required three thin coats to achieve the opacity in my photos.
Here is the difference between a HOLO and a scattered HOLO effect. The photo above is the scattered HOLO, the rainbow particles are scattered across the entire nail. The photo below is the HOLO, which creates lines of rainbow over the nail. It is a HOLO powder from the BeautyBigBang HOLO Powder Review post.
Lastly, my favourite of all three! This is called DressCode Blue, and it’s a Cat Eye gel nail polish. After the polish application and before curing, hold a Cat Eye Magnet over the nail, then you’ll get this beautiful Cat Eye line across the nail! I’ve applied two layers, creating the Cat Eye lines after each application.
This was the colour I was trying to find for a long time and when I first saw this polish on Madam Glam’s Instagram, I instantly fell in LOVE!! Since I saw this polish, I already knew that I was going to create this recent nail art: Original Character Nail Art – Snow Fox.
