It’s been a little while since I have had a chance to post anything from Madam Glam Cosmetics. Between packing moving, buying a house, packing again, moving again, holidays and company, I’m finally getting back into the groove with my favorite indie girls! I have a few amazing products to share with you this evening. Now I’ve tried many many polishes from MG, but this time, I also got the chance to try out an amazing polish remover and a Quick Dry top coat.
Madam Glam Express Nail Polish Remover (Dip & Twist) is just as incredible as the label says! And the Quick Dry topcoat is great because not only does it dry super glossy and fast, it’s not annoyingly thick like some commercial brands…ahem SV cough cough. LOL
I have tried those department store sponge dip removers before. They are ok but they are just acetone and a sponge. It took me just as long with those to remove polish as if they were from a bottle. But Madam Glad Express Nail Polish Remover is a wonder to behold. In fact, I’d like to see this is a giant sponge bottle! This stuff is FAST! 3 seconds average to remove, 9-10 seconds for ornery glitter. I did a short video which I’ll share on my Instagram feed, because I don’t have permissions here on WordPress to share it. Dip, twist and your nail comes out totally clean. The only thing I would change is the sponge did come apart a tiny bit. Not sure what happened but a few tiny fragments of the black sponge within came out on my finger. Maybe it was just a few pieces from when the sponge was installed. So if that is normal, no worries. But if we could have sponge that doesn’t shed, that would make this a perfect product. That being said, the magic is in the remover! I also used by cleanup brush dipped into it when cleaning up my manicure and it whisked away every trace for super quick cleanup. Here’s what Madam Glam says about it:
“Express Nail Polish Remover”
Nail polish remover that will leave your nails nice and clean, as if the lacquer was never there. Say goodbye to the classic way of removing nail polish. This is one of the life-hacks you need for your nail care routine. No need for cotton pads! Everything you need is all in one item. You can easily take it on your travels, as it is perfectly packaged, for when you are away.
How does it work? Inside the bottle you will find foam soaked in nail polish remover. Insert one finger at a time and twist it until there is no more nail polish left on the nail.
– It smells awesome!
– The foam has a comfortable texture.
– The white peach extract will leave your cuticles nurtured and moisturized, thanks to its vitamins and minerals. It’s time to make your nail polish removing experience so much easier and healthier for your finger tips!!”
I give this product 2 clean thumbs up! Now, about the Quick Dry Topcoat. Love it! I’m always on the lookout for a great glossy topcoat that dries fast, doesn’t get thick or sticky and speeds up my whole mani operation. As much as I swatch, it’s pretty important that I have a good reliable topcoat. Here is what Madam Glam has to say about it:
If you’re tired of waiting for your mani to dry, this is the solution!
– Apply after polish and top coat
– Look up the latest polish of Madam Glam
– And surprise it’s already dry!
On to the four gorgeous shades I have to show you. I’ll just post the photos here and let them speak for themselves!
Pastel Sky is described as, “Azure Blue”. This pale blue creme is super pigmented, dries fast and smooth in 1-2 coats. Caribbean Island (be still my heart, SO in love with this one!)…It’s described as a bright mint. This mega opaque creme is fully opaque in 1-2 coats. It really reminds me of the shallow shoreline of a Caribbean island!
Pastel Sky is a baby blue creme with surprisingly opaque coverage. I’d say this is pretty close to that Pantone blue shade for 2016!
Oh my! I am predicting this will be on my fingers and toes a lot this summer! Girls if you love minty cremes this glossy stunner needs to be in your collection!
Original Sin is described as “A flirty bright red”. This creme is buttery smooth, sort of like a crelly, dries super glossy in 1-2 coats. I would describe Golden Beauty as a while gold micro glitter is super dense and slightly textured, very slight. One coat of topcoat, I used the amazing Madam Glad Quick Dry, will create a glossy smooth finish if desired.
Original Sin is a classic red. As in, little red dress red! It dries super glossy I think because it’s nearly a jelly, but not quite.
Here is Golden Beauty, 2 coats, and accented with Original Sin. One coat of topcoat for a semi smooth finish, 2 coats of topper for a more glass-like look.
