Madam Glam Review

Hey everyone!

In mid-November, I was contacted by a rep for MadamGlam and asked if I would be interested in reviewing some polish for them.. I scoped the site, and sshhyeeah I would review some polish - they looked amazing!

So, fast forward to mid-December, nothing has shown up, but I did remember that I was sent a tracking code.. so I type that in and it says it was delivered on November 30th.. uhh.. wut.

I called the post office closest to my house to just inquire if it happened to be there - sure enough (thankfully) it was! I did some nail art with them almost immediately, but - then Christmas happened.. and I was super sick and also housesitting.. so.. you're only getting to see this now. I am very sorry!

What I can tell you about these gems that I was sent is that 1. they are beautiful and 2. they apply like DREAMS! The formulation is magical. Zero issues, not too thick or too thin.. and the glitter! THE GLITTER. I did two coats.. just two, no undies, and I could have almost passed with just one, but I can never do just one coat.

Anyways.. Here are the sweet shades I was sent:

We have:
Cashmere - At first glance, it does look white, and I was excited because it looked to be an opaque white, then I realized it has a slight grey tinge, so, this is in fact a grey - not a white.. and it is just very smooth.
More Diamonds Please - this glitter is magical! It is rose gold-y, gold.. silver.. it is everything! Annnnd.. it applies like.. umm.. butter? It is probably the smoothest glitter polish I have worked with yet.
Aqualicious - I am obsessed with these bright high-lighty green shades. This is no different. Sometimes these shades tend to lean on the streaky side, but this did not. It applied nicely. Used 2 coats on the base colour nails.
Text Me Later -  This is a very deep purple that some people in real life actually thought was black - but it is that perfect midnight-purple tone. Was good with one coat, but of course, I did two. This is also listed as a best seller. I can understand why.


I quite liked the consistency for the Madam Glam polish - I had never heard of them before, but I am very glad that I have now. These were fantastic to work with - and I look forward to adding more to my collection at some point in time (aka when the CAD isn't so horrible!)

Make sure you go check out the site HERE - they often have rad deals, and who doesn't like taking advantage of sweet deals?

Thanks for stopping by - see you again soon!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
