Madam Glam Pastel Gels Review

Nailzini
Tutorial
Includes press samples

Today I have a couple swatches to show you guys that I'm super excited about! Madam Glam send me a couple gorgeous gels to try out and review and I finally finished swatching them all!



I was super excited when Madam Glam contacted me a little while ago for reviews. I'm a huge fan of their gels! They last at least 2 weeks, apply easily and on top of that are vegan, 5-free, and cruelty-free. What's not to love right?

They also gave me a 30% discount code "nailsqueen30%" to share with you guys in case you want to get some of their polishes.

It took me a bit longer than normal with the end of the school year and lots of school projects to finish, but I finally got the time to finish up all my swatches!

First up is "Kiwi Daiquiri" which is a stunning mint green jelly with pink, purple, and gold glitters. I am absolutely in love with this gorgeous color and the amount of glitters. Not too much, not too little, just perfect for me and for summer!

This gorgeous gel polish is from their "smoothie gel collection" and it's a little different than their normal gels. The consistency is very, and I do mean very, thick which makes it a bit harder to apply.

I found that wiping all the excess polish off the brush and applying a very thing layer works best to get an even coat. (I applied 3 coats + no wipe top coat by  Madam Glam ) Because of the thin layers you also need a bit less curing time: 3 sec/coat for a powerful lamp and 15 sec/coat for other lamps. I cured mine for 15 sec and it was perfect.

Aside from the gooey consistency, this polish is absolutely amazing!! I am in love with the jelly effect and the pretty little glitters. This is really the perfect summer polish and I'll definitely be wearing it often!

Then for their normal soak-off gels I have these 5 beautiful pastel color to show you guys: "Amor Azul", "Light Ruby", "Ballerina", "Angel Wings", and "Cast a Spell".

Amor Azul Madam Glam Nailzini
Amor Azul by Madam Glam
This one is called "Amor Azul" which means "blue love" in Spanish and as soon as I saw that name (and the color) it reminded me of one of my favorite flowers: forget-me-nots. Our garden is always filled with those gorgeous blue flowers in spring and it's soo pretty to see a sea of blue.

And this polish is just as stunning! It's a light baby blue and requires 2 or 3 coats to be opaque. I'm wearing 3 coats here, because I didn't use a gel base coat (I used unt "ready for takeoff") and I needed another coat to fill up my nail ridges...

I tested the lasting power of this gel with my previous flower mani (picture at the bottom of the page) and it lasted me 2 weeks without chipping on my dominant hand! Even in week 3 there was only a tiny bit of chipping so they last really well.

Next up is this beautiful gel called "Cast a spell".

This gorgeous light lavender color is perfectly opaque with only 2 coats! Here I'm wearing 2 thin coats and topped with one coat of no-wipe top coat by Madam Glam.

If you've been following me for a while you probably know I'm a huge Disney fan so this name immediately reminded me of the fairy godmother from Cinderella. I always loved her sparkling wand (and all the cool stuff it can do of course! I want a magical outfit changer too!!) so it seemed like the perfect fit for this pretty gel.

This polish is like a purple version of nude polish and perfect for a subtle mani!

Ballerina Madam Glam Nailzini

This light nude gel polish is called "Ballerina"and I think I may have found my perfect nude! I love how it matches my light skin tone! Because it's such a light color it's also the perfect gel to use as a base for nail art.

This gel is also fully opaque with just 2 coats!! In the picture I'm wearing a coat of base gel, 2 coats of "Ballerina", and one coat of no wipe top coat. I don't have any experience with other gel nudes, but all my nude polishes require at least 3 coats so I'm loving this one!

The name reminded me of one of Narmai's old designs, which I've always loved, so I decided to recreate it.

The design is hand painted with acrylic paint and my Peachy #000 brush from Mitty Burns and my 3/0 Raphael kolinsky brush.

Angel Wings Madam Glam Nailzini
Angel Wings by Madam Glam
"Angel Wings" is a bubblegum/light barbie pink which very much out of my comfort zone, but sometimes you have to take a risk and try something new, right?!! I'm not really sure how I feel about it though...

Don't get my wrong! Like all the other gels, this one is amazing as well. The colors really pops out, it applies smoothly and only needs 2 coats. I'm just not sure if it's my color... I can't decide whether I love it or hate it. It's so pink, but I do like how bright and different it is from what I normally wear.

Light Ruby Madam Glam Nailzini

Last but definitely not least is this gorgeous burgundy gel: "Light Ruby". I am absolutely in love with this stunning color and it might be my favorite of them all!! I adore the diluted/muted ruby color and I think it fits my skin color amazingly. It's the perfect red for a subtle but gorgeous mani.

This one is perfect with just 2 coats as well!

Light Ruby Madam Glam Nailzini
Light Ruby by Madam Glam
The ruby is inspired by Chalkboard Nails and hand painted with the Minty 0 brush by Mitty Burns and a small detail brush. I used "Ballerina", "Soul mate", and "Light Ruby" by Madam Glam to make the different color shades.

The lightest color is "Ballerina", the second lightest shade if "Ballerina" mixed with "Light Ruby". The middle color is "Light Ruby". The next two darker shades are "Soul mate" mixed with "Light Ruby" and the dark lines are painted with "Soul Mate".

 Day 8
This picture was taken on day 8 of wearing all these gorgeous gels! This is my right hand so it gets used the most! With normal polish it mostly chips after day 4 .

In my short "gel at home" video you can see how "Soul Mate", which is the same formula as the pastel gels, by  Madam Glam look on day 7, 12, 16 and 18.
