Born Pretty Gel, Foils and Oil!

Well, this was a fun package I received in the mail today. Some gorgeous gel polishes, shimmers and Cat Eye, a dozen metallic foils and some tropical scented cuticle oil. Every single item is a winner. Let’s take a look!

First, a denim blue frosty Magnetic Cat Eye gel polish, BP 05. I thought it was going to be more of a midnight blue, but this works for me! Applied over black gel polish to really make it stand out. It is item #41515

BP 05 Magnetic Cat Eye Gel is a gorgeous deep denim blue, here I used a round magnet for this special effect. Cure after applying magnet and voila!

How about a lovely golden shimmer and red shimmer duo from Born Pretty’s Soak Off Gel Polish line?! Perfect together at a great price. This is item BP Soak Off Gel polish set #41492.

A 2-pack of BORN PRETTY Red Sparkle Gel and Gold Holographic Glitter Soak Off Nail Gel Polish. A beautiful duo!

I am SO loving these super thin, easy to apply nail foil, gold leaf variations, gold, silver, and two oil slick variations. 12 pots and a tiny bit goes a LONG way! I applied them over BP 05 Cat Eye gel! Item #3966

Set pf 12 Nail Art Foil in Gold, Silver, oil slick red/orange/gold/teal and oil slick gold/red/orange/fuscia Set! Easy to apply over nail polish then top coat, or over any stick layer then top coat with gel as I did here over BP Cat Eye Gel BP 05. Item # 3966

And last but not least, an amazing cuticle oil pen, item #39329 in the scent of Coconut and man it smells amazing. Not fake or plasticky, but like real coconut. It isn’t overly oily, but feels just right. It also comes in Pineapple, Peach, Lavender and Almond.

An amazing Nail Cuticle Oil 2ml Fruit or Flower scented, in a handy metallic pen. I used Coconut here and it smells amazing, not too shiny either so great for photographing nail swatches. I am loving this stuff!

Madam Glam Cat Eye Gel polishes are Purrrfect!

Today is Caturday! LOL, ok, enough with the cat jokes but seriously, I am loving the Cat Eye Gel Polishes from Madam Glam. I want to mention before I forget, you’ll notice on the labels of the currently 36 available cat eye shades, that they are called Cat See Gel Polish. I’m not really sure why, but I can assure you these are cat eye gel polishes. Also, you will need a cat eye gel polish magnet to achieve the effect and they are available for purchase through Madam Glam for $2. For now, I’d like to show you two of them. A Chameleon cat eye gel polish called Always Together, and a regular cat eye gel polish called No Doubt.

Madam Glad Chameleon Cat's Eye gel polish is not only striking as a Cat's Eye sparkler, it's also a chameleon so this hybrid has everything going for it. The colors shift from what is described as, Walnut. A beautiful reddish mahogany shade that will make you feel like mystery surrounds you!" One cured coat over a black gel base, cured. With a magnet, you can create a multitude of designs.

With a magnet, you can create a multitude of designs.

It is recommended that you prepare your nails with first of course a gel base, cure. Then a black gel, cure. Then one coat of the cat eye gel color, magnet until you get the effect you desire, cure. Then finally a gel top coat. It’s really very easy! I love how multifaceted Always Together, cat eye plus a duotone metallic finish.

Madam Glam Soak-off Cat's Eye Gel polish is considered a "Boysenberry. Dreamy midnight shade for an exquisite lady! Try out the cat eye effect!' The cat's eye force is strong in this one! It goes on fairly shimmery purple but then takes on a more deep, berry shade. The purple shimmer then transforms into 3D shimmer lines after working it with a magnet before curing. Amazing!

This one really surprise me! I thought it surely would be the medium shimmery purple as shown on the lid. But I ended up with a glorious deep berry shade and the cat eye effect because the 3 dimensional seemingly moving cat eye focus. Cool huh?

CONCLUSION: I could totally get hooked on these. I really want to swatch some holiday shades for you so maybe I can make that happen. Wouldn’t a green cat eye be just perfect? Maybe with a red cat eye accent nail? I have a short video on my Instagram page of the cat eye effect in action. Look for Lacqueredlori of course. 😉

Oh, and here is something I wanted to add on! Madam Glam has some amazingly simple Gel Polish Remover Wraps. Super easy to use, smell really good and easier than using foil method. A box of 100 wipes is $10.95. Remember, because I’ve forgotten a few times, Always buff the shiny gel top coat to matte before taking off gel polish. It really helps and you won’t cuss so much! LOL 😉

Madam Glad Gel Polish Remover Wipes come in a 100 piece box. That should last quite awhile considering how long the gel polishes stay on!
