Swatch Saturday: Madam Glam Soak Off Gel Polish

Good afternoon, readers! For this week's Swatch Saturday post, I have 4 soak off gel polishes by Madam Glam. I've previously reviewed Madam Glam Honeydew so I urge you to visit that post if you haven't before--it has step by step instructions and photos on how to apply soak off gel polish. These 4 polishes were applied using a 12W LED lamp to cure each polish layer, including the gel base and gel top coats(not shown). Gel polish cannot dry without a UV light, so please keep that in mind before you purchase any. You can purchase a light from Madam Glam or on Amazon. These can be worn for a couple of weeks without chips so they definitely have advantages over regular polish. Let's check out the 4 colors I picked to review below.

Madam Glam California Love
A sparkling turquoise gel polish with added small glitter.
I'm showing three thin coats below with the base and top coat. 
This is such a gorgeous gel polish and a nice option if you don't prefer cremes. I've actually had this on my toes for 3 weeks and it is still shiny and sparkly.

Madam Glam Not Just You And Me
A jewel toned, pearly shimmery magenta. The blue shimmer gives it a purple tone.
I'm showing two coats below with base and top coat.
I love the different colored shimmer in this shade. It wasn't as purple as I was expecting, but the blue shimmer pulls it toward the purple spectrum a bit. Very girly!

Madam Glam Light Lilac
Lilac creme gel polish.
I'm showing three thin coats below with base and top coat.
You may get away with only two coats, but I prefer thinner coats with gel polish. Gorgeous purple!

Madam Glam Perfect White
White creme gel polish.
I'm showing three thin coats below with the base and top coat.
The formula on this was thicker than the others so I wiped a lot off of the brush and painted three thin coats for complete coverage. I'm wearing this as my full mani right now and plan to add some fun neon nail art on top today! It makes a great base for nail art.

What do you think of these four soak off gel polish colors by Madam Glam? Which is your favorite? I love them all and I can't wait to try more. There are currently 74 gel polish color options on the Madam Glam site, plus 12 Chameleon thermal gel colors. Wear them alone or in nail art, like I did two weeks ago! 

Each polish(base coat, top coat, or color) retails for $19.95 each. However, I have a 30% off coupon code for my readers! Use code YGEL30OFF.

Thanks so much for reading!
