Madam Glam x4 | Swatches and Review

Hi loves,
Hope you're all enjoying the start of the weekend! Mine has been pretty okay, minus feeling ill. Besides that I participated in Free Art Friday! A great thing hosted by Paper Panda (check her out she is amazing!) where arty crafty fellows left a piece of their own work in the street, anywhere they fancied.. So someone could find it. A little spread of love to make someone smile :) mine has been taken but not sure yet by who?! So I'm stalking the hashtag #freeartfridaypp on social media in the hope of seeing my work claimed. Hehe :)

Today I am sharing 4 polishes from Madam Glam, a new to me brand which I'm excited to show off! 




So Bombshell | a stunning hot pink with small holo hexes, sporting a lovely frosted pearl finish.
Shown 2 coats, some may need 3.




--



Ladylike | described as a 'muted timeless creamy red' which I totally agree! It's showing a tad brighter on my nails but it is near the bottle colour IRL.
Shown 2 coats.


--



Emerald Dream | the stunning emerald jelly. It's so squishy. I love it! 
Shown 2 coats but some may need 3.


--




Under The Stars | the mystic one, a stunning deep ink purple with tiny flecks of sparkle. More true to colour in macro mode, it freaked my camera out in normal pictures for some reason lol!
Shown here 2 coats, could use 1. 




Which is your favourite? It's a tough one for me! 
Overall I really enjoyed swatching these, I did find the brushes to be a little stiff for me? I got good application but the brush hairs didn't flow/move as easy as other polishes. Besides that though all is great! I did experience a little staining with Under The Stars so I would recommend doubling on the base coat.

Black and White | Inspired by..

Hi loves,
I hope you are all well. I've been feeling pretty poorly for some reason, I am not sure what is up but I keep having moioon sickness since travelling on the bus the other say. Strange! 

Anyway today I have another inspired by mani, I really have grown a huge love for white in everything! It's so fresh and clean and just lovely IMO.

I was inspired by @kawaii_nails_tustin_ca on instagram, she did half moons where I changed mine up a tad. :)



For this I used Barry M Matt White and acrylic paint for the line work. 



I really adore the look of this mani, it's just clean but has a little character too. I did not want to remove it :(

It's just a quick one for today! Be sure to check out my inspired by!
