Fun Holiday-worthy shades from Madam Glam Gel Polishes

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….

Tomboy is a deep forest green shimmer gel polish by Madam Glam. I have to say, one of my favorites by MG! Perfect for the holiday season! 2 coats.

I LOVE this kind of green and it’s perfect for holiday and winter manis. That extra sparkle is perfect!

Glittery plum is another gorgeous shimmery gel polish by Madam glam. A delicate sparkly plum shade, also perfect for your holiday mani.

Glittery Plum is so juicy! I love this kind of shade and it goes on super smooth.

Higher Spirit is a latte shimmer shade that has sort of a white gold effect when the magnet is applied before curing. This Madam Glam Cat Eye gel polish is stunning and elegant! 2 coats alone over base gel.

I love Cat Eye polishes, like really really love them! So versatile and this shade is what I would call an office appropriate polish.

How fun is this?! Sprinkle Jam is a one of a long line of fun and super easy to use One Step gel polishes by Madam Glam. It’s an emerald multi faceted glitter, tiny to medium glitters with a few micro bars thrown in for extra sparkle. This clear gel base topper is gorgeous alone in two coats, as seen on my pinky. Or topped over your choice of base shades. I used Madam Glam One Step in a spicy red called Smart Red!

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!

Madam Glam One Step Gel polish, and more!

I’m back with some more gel polishes from Madam Glam. I’m on a gel roll gals, no gelly roll. LOL Today I’d like to share with you some One Step Gel polishes “The Next Generation”! We know wearing gel polish is a timesaver. They last and last and since you cure them, they dry FAST! But how about turning it up a notch and foregoing the application and curing of a base and top coat? Yeah, you see where I’m going with this. I’ll also share with you how to change the look over any gel with the fabulous Matte Top Coat!

Here are 4 of the many MANY Madam Glam One Step Gel polish lineup, "the Next Generation"! From left, Boyfriend Style, Tiara, Lolita and Obsession.

It couldn’t be any easier. And these shades are gorgeous. I did have one that didn’t look good on me, and it’s meant to be sheer. I speak of the glittery gilted Tiara. I found it serves better topped over something else. Well, you’ll see!

Unbelievably easy, these Madam Glam One Step Gel polishes area a time saver. Here is 2 coats of Boyfriend Style. It's described as, Pale Dusty Lilac-Blue. Nothing more suitable for a lazy weekend than a comfy boyfriend style! Admit it you love it! And we found for you the perfect one step gel to go with it!

2 coats of Madam Glam One Step Gel polish, Lolita, is described as a Grape, Girlish but not really, Lolita is the quietness, the fantasy, the magic beauty!

I LOVE Obsession. Such a blushing beauty with a fab gold shimmer. This is where you see Tiara by itself, in I followup with Tiara coated over another color.

I tried a combo here, but I wanted you to see it even though I didn't care for how it turned out. First up, Madam Glam Obsession is one of the One Step gels and is described as "Berry Red with very very subtle shimmers, gold under the sun. Passionate, enthusiast, addicted - the perfect description of a obsession! What woman doesn't desire these things?" I love the golden shimmer in this one and it's so beautiful on my complexion. However, the middle and ring fingers didn't quite turn out as I hoped. The formula of Tiara was easy to use, perfect. The shimmers and gold flakes within, easy to apply. But, it would take more thank 3 coats to get to full opacity and the warm yellowish jelly type base didn't go well with my skin tone. Honest, my nails are white and this made them look stained by themselves. But hold on! Check out the next image of Tiara in 1 coat over another shade!

Redemption! lol Just one coat of the previously mentioned One Coat gel polish, Tiara, over a coat of one of Madam Glam's Chameleons called Amaretto, shown here in "chill" mode is pretty darn cool! Cooled Amaretto takes on a rosy hue while warm it leans a latte shade. Great combo!

CONCLUSION: I’m such a hopeless convert to gel polishes now. I love regular polish too but as my life continues to stay a step ahead of me, I’m finding that when I have a hectic week ahead, it’s a lifesaver. My Chameleons review will be coming along soon. They are SO COOL! That’s why I just had to show you how versatile they can be not only alone, but under sheer toppers. They still change color with temps warm/cold without a hiccup.

I need to mention and remind you that Madam Glam offers three different LED gel curing lights. A pocket LED lamp, a 36w full size LED lamp and a full size 48w Professional lamp. I can tell you the Pro is very roomy, even for feet! Here are a couple shots. As you can see, there are three time settings, and also features an “auto on” so when you place your hand under the dome, it lights immediately for when you want to add a bit of time without using the predetermined timers. Just be sure and set a stop watch setting on your phone or something to track how long your hand is in there. This one works great!

This is Madam Glam's top of the line full power 48 W Professional nail CCFL - LED light for gel nails. This LED lamp will keep things professional! It is universal for UV gel, builder gel and led gel polish! The large opening allows you to cure both hands simultaneously. Ideal product for both home use and professional salon. Fast curing time! Specifications: Power : 48W  3 timers : 10sec, 20sec, 30sec and continuous sensor Weight: 1.25KG Size: 9.3cm x 18.5cm x 21cm Color: Silver Plug : US
