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! Thi

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!
