Madam Glam update, every month I share 3 soak off gel shades with you and I am hoping you'll love this months choices as well! I went with 2 softer colors and one very bright shade, and I was quite pleased with my selection!

As always I swatched these over a latex base to make it easier to change the colors, other than that I treated them the way they should - curing each layer for the appropriate amount of time and adding a top coat to finish them.
Madam Glam Dusty Blue is exactly that, a dusty blue :-). There is some grey in this shade which makes me suspect it'll look different based on your skintone. For some more of the blue will be pulled out while others may perceive this as a grey with a hint of blue. On me it pulled quite blue and it looked very soft and creamy without being chalky. The formula is very opaque and a nice consistency. Sometimes gels can be really thick, Dusty Blue is more medium thickness and easy to distribute over the nail. I used 2 coats.
Madam Glam Kobi is a soft pink with a very faint shimmer. It's a bit of a bubblegum shade, very girly and happy and perfect for Spring. The formula was a tad too thick for my personal preference, making it a bit harder to apply thin which is key for gels, and it had some slight shrinking on the tips. I used 2 coats.
Madam Glam What's Your Type is a hot shade! An eye searing red with a hint of orange, and such a squishy finish. While it isn't as opaque, it does apply very evenly so you can build it up the way you like. Use 2 coats for a more jelly look or add a 3rd to eliminate visible nail line. Extremely shiny finish! I used 3 coats. Fun fact: this glows a neon pink when being cured :-D.
I've come to love and adore Madam Glam soak off gel and these 3 shades are no exception. My favorite is Dusty Blue because it's clean, soft and wearable (and reminds me of fresh sheets somehow) but the other 2 shades are winners for me as well! The formula of Kobi could have been a bit better but I'll just need to pay a bit more attention while applying this one.
What do you think of my selection this month? And which of these shades is your favorite? Tell me in the comments!
