Swatch and Review: Madam Glam (Black Friday Discount!)

Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have more polishes from Madam Glam to share with you! And a discount code that they graciously offered my readers for Black Friday! I am happy to report that these polishes are all amazing quality and total must haves. If you want to see the swatches, keep reading! 

The first polish I have to share with you is Holo Fever, a purple based jelly glitter bomb filled with scattered holo micro glitter! Application was lovely despite the slight thickness due to all of the glitter. I applied Holo Fever in two thin coats plus topcoat. I would recommend maybe doubling up on your coats of topcoat because the micro glitter tends to eat it a bit. The formula is a tiny bit on the thick side but self levels beautifully. My swatch shows two coats.

The next one of the bunch is More Diamonds Please, a pinky-grey micro glitter filled with scattered holo in a jelly base. The formula on More Diamonds Please is very similar to Holo Fever, a bit thick but easy to apply and it self leveled nicely. I expected to have to do 3 coats of More Diamonds Please but 2 did the trick! My swatch shows 2 coats plus topcoat.

Next up is Blue Princess, a blue micro glitter with a slight green shift resulting in a beautiful turquoise finish. Blue Princess was more sheer coverage than the previous micro glitters that I swatched so it could easily be worn as a topper or by itself in 3 thin coats. Formula was similar to Holo Fever and More Diamonds Please, a little on the thick side due to the dense glitter but again, it self leveled nicely. My swatch shows 3 thin coats plus topcoat. I did dab the glitter around a little around the tip of my nail to make sure I didn't have any VNL.

The final polish I have to show you is Fun In A Bottle, a white crelly base with matte neon hex glitters in all sizes! This one was definitely my favorite since I'm a lover of all the crellies in life. The formula on Fun In A Bottle blew me away - not thick at all or too thin, just the perfect consistency and opaque in 2 coats. My favorite thing about Fun In A Bottle was that I didn't even have to shake it to get all of the different glitters out. There was no settling of the glitter during shipping and I didn't have to fish any out. My swatch shows 2 coats plus topcoat.
