Swatches & Review // 3 Soak Off Gel shades from Madam Glam

Hi loves! I'm back today with more Madam Glam Soak Off Gel swatches. They kindly let me pick 3 new shades to test and I went with a creme, a shimmer and a thermal (of which I forgot to take transition pictures.. bad blogger). But before we get started, can I get some help? I use lint free wipes and UV cleanser to take off the tacky layer, but my finish always dulls a bit and doesn't have that high shine finish like it should have. Any tips?

Let's take a closer look!

I swatched these gels over a latex base. I didn't feel this influenced the application, but it did make for quick removal after each polish ;-). I used Madam Glam's topcoat for each shade.

Madam Glam Irresistible is a gorgeous shimmery teal and my favorite of the bunch. The formula was a bit.. weird? The shimmer bits look rather coarse and chunky when applying it, but the benefit of gel is you'll end up with a smooth finish after curing. I used 3 coats for opacity.

Madam Glam Perfect For Me is a thermal going from Mayan blue at high temperature to indigo at low temperature. This was extremely sheer on me, I needed 4 coats for opacity. Luckily it applied rather thin so it didn't build up too much, but I would have been happier if the formula was more opaque.

Madam Glam Vamp is a dusty aubergine shade, and the one with the best formula. 2 coats are really all you need, and I applied thin layers!

Overall conclusion
Obviously the thermal Perfect For Me is a lot of fun, but 4 coats are a bit much. The shimmer in Irresistible definitely fits the name though, it's a color I definitely recommend! If you are looking for a smooth creme, go with Vamp. It's a perfect purple for the season!

What do you think of these 3 gel shades? Tell me in the comments!
Madam Glam is based in New York City and besides soak off gel polish, they also sell regular nail polish and other make-up items. All polishes are 5-free, cruelty free and vegan. Worldwide shipping is available and they also just introduced their Vip Box program where you get to choose 3 gel polishes for just $29. That saves you half off regular retail price!
