This is my first time trying My Kinda Color Nail Lacquer and it looks like owner/creator, Patty, has a lot of gorgeous colors…and counting! She also sells cosmetics such as eyeshadows and eyeliners, so check the links below!
Sorry for my absence the past month. We have been in Florida remodeling our beachfront condo property, prepping it for sale, and giving it a total refresh for this summer’s vacay crowd!
Today I am featuring five beautiful shades and without further ado, let’s take a look!
Many more shades and finishes in Patty’s store. Give them a try!
Owner Patty notes: Most nail polish colors have matching pressed power eyeshadow and smudge proof Gel eyeliner/shadow. Vegan 5-free Cruelty free Made in USA-Florida. Prices are super reasonable!
Greetings all! We find ourselves between Thanksgiving and Christmas and as we finish off the leftover turkey, it’s already time to hang the greens and shop for gifts! I totally overdid it, as usual, and maxed out my pain threshold while decorating for Christmas. I spent the good part of the week in deep seering pain and although I’m on the mend, the discomfort in my shoulder has somewhat subsided and is traveling down into my knuckles. But hey, all for a good cause right? lol This getting older stuff is no fun. I still have shopping to do, and ugh, the thought of rolling out more pie dough makes me wince. At least my house looks picture perfect 😉
Regardless of the old lady pains the past week, the swatching must go on, right?! Today, I have some gorgeous gel polishes from Madam Glam. Always so many fun new things arriving at MadamGlam.com. You can also now find lipsticks there, and brand new, a nail color dipping powder system. Yay! So let’s get on with the swatches….
I LOVE this kind of green and it’s perfect for holiday and winter manis. That extra sparkle is perfect!
Glittery Plum is so juicy! I love this kind of shade and it goes on super smooth.
I love Cat Eye polishes, like really really love them! So versatile and this shade is what I would call an office appropriate polish.
You won’t find a quicker way of applying a cured gel polish than the One Step. No base or top coat necessary and you can layer and mix and match them with ease. Sprinkle Jam is super fun over red.
Conclusion: I think I’ve said it all, but you know when you buy polishes and accessories from Madam Glam, you are definitely getting your money’s worth! Shop now and look for specials as well! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and heartfelt Holiday wishes!

Today I will be sharing 2 of the 36 Madam Glam Smoothie Gel Collection polish, plus a blushing nude gel polish! I want to mention right away, that my first encounter applying the thicker gel polishes (with glitters) was a bit of a learning experience. For years I’ve developed a method of applying non-gel glitter toppers and polishes in a certain way, thin first then thick and dobbed on. It is not recommended to do it this way with gel because of the way you cure them, you cannot apply thick layers, ever! Although not especially damaging, your curing light will create a chemical heat reaction that is somewhat uncomfortable. Now I know this doesn’t have to happen at all and that applying 2-3 THIN coats cured after each coat does the trick nicely without any discomfort. This even applies to regular gel polishes that lean to the thicker side. Apply thin even coats curing after each. You end up with a smooth, saturated finish. The Smoothies look amazing! Also, I’ll be sharing with you a delicate nude with a hint of peachy pink. Lovely!
CONCLUSION on the Smoothies: I love the creamy look the Smoothie Gel Collection polishes. The bottles are adorable and the wear is average 2 weeks!
CONCLUSION on Over and Over: I have a ton of nudes and neutral regular polishes, but this is one of my first nude gels. I love how smooth this applies. It’s quite effortless to achieve a perfect finish.
Gels run $19.95 ea and currently, if you buy 4 polishes get 40% off at checkout with CODE ( 40OFF ), and Madam Glam runs specials so DO get on their mailing list! New collections and colors are being added all of the time.

I just posted the ILNP Summer “Shimmer” Collection 2016 earlier today. Now here is the gorgeous sister collection, Summer Collection. A fabulous ensemble of finishes and shades. None will disappoint! They are available to order now for $10 ea or $60 for a set. Let’s take a look!
Let’s see swatches, because really. That’s why you’re here!
CONCLUSION: I LOVED each one of this collection, all amazing formulas and all super shiny. My fave? How does “yeah, you’ll have these when you pull them from my cold, dead fingers!” LOL
What is your vegan/cruelty free policy? ILNP absolutely does not test our products on animals nor do we purchase materials from suppliers that do. We make a conscious effort to avoid purchasing animal/insect derived materials like carmine and guanine/pearl, etc. as there are plenty of synthetic alternatives that perform the same or even better.
Are your nail polishes 3-Free? Yes! All ILNP nail polishes are 3 free! They DO NOT contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate.
What does 3-Free mean? 3-Free means that our nail polishes do not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate. These 3 ingredients were previously used in most nail polish formulations until recent studies found them to be potentially harmful or irritable to humans. While these chemicals aren’t illegal to use in nail polish (although California law requires special labeling if used), most large brands have already moved to 3-Free formulas at the urge of educated consumers as well as organizations that campaign for safe cosmetics.”

Diving right into the April polish subscription box from SquareHue, the moment I opened it I was out of breath! The April Adventure Collection brings us Skydive Interlaken. Three finishes, three knockout shades. Let’s suit up and take a look!
Monch is so brilliant, not even the sun can compete with this shade. Wear it matte or shine it up even more with a topcoat. I don’t know why but yellow this shade screams for black! So I had fun with some dots and dry marble.
Eiger is a super glossy pink with flashes of blue shimmer. I don’t seem to get a duochrome effect, but it’s sure gorgeous!
Last but no way least, a super surprise this month is a pale purple crelly/glitter, Jungfrau. Hey, did you know that Jungfrau is a group of mountain peaks in Switzerland? Me neither. I really must get out more! lol
Conclusion. I read a couple mini reviews and a couple of reviewers had a couple of problems with Jungfrau and Monch. I had 0 problems, 0 defects! the Eiger took a bit longer to dry but the glossiness is worth it. Jungfrau is exactly how I like my crelly/glitters. And Monch, well. She’s a standout as far as yellow polishes are concerned. I’m super pleased!
