Today I’m sharing with you some gel polishes – which is a first for me!
I literally couldn’t believe it when Madam Glam got in touch asking me if I wanted to work with them, but as I’ve never used gel polish before, I explained that I didn’t have a lamp, and just asked to try some of their chrome powders to use over regular polish.
Anyway, when my parcel arrived I was blown away to discover that I had been sent 4 of the Madam Glam one step gels along with a UV lamp! Such a nice surprise!
As a gel novice, I was nervous to try these, but I needn’t have been – these one step gels are so easy and simple to use.
All you need to do is apply the gel onto your naked nail and then cure under the lamp for 20-30 seconds. And that, is literally it! So quick and so easy to do.
I will now show you the swatches!
First up is Adore Me, which is a pale, peachy pink shade filled with a delicate shimmer. So pretty. This one was so easy to apply, I used 2 coats.
The second polish I am showing you is Sugar Skull. This is a beautiful lemon yellow. The formula was a little tricky, but it evened out nicely with 3 coats.
Next up is Pink Margarita. Wow this is a pretty shade! It’s a coral leaning pink with a subtle blue shimmer. I used 2 coats. The formula of this one was easy to work with.
Finally I’m showing you Tulum which is a stunning, bright turquoise leaning sky blue. What an amazing colour! Sadly, the formula on this one was not great. It was very thick and just would not even out on the nail. I used 3 coats and still had patchy areas. But it is an amazing shade.
Overall, I am really happy to have tried these one step gel’s! They are really so easy to use. I will definitely be buying some – I think I will go for some glitters to wear on my toes!
Just a note re wear time and removal – when swatching these gels I used a peel off base coat underneath. I did wear Sugar Skull and Adore Me for a few days each. Even with the peel off base coat underneath, they lasted really well! So if you hate removing gels, then you could try wearing these with a peel off base coat underneath. Otherwise you can remove them using the foil method.
I am wearing Tulum on my toes and have been for about 3 weeks! It hasn’t chipped at all and still looks as good as when I first applied it. So these gels do have good staying power!
