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!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

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…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
