Hey everyone! I have a gel collection review today! This is Madam Glam Smoothie Collection and these definitely have a unique vibe to them.
Since this post is going to be picture heavy, I'm just going to summarize the formula right here.
I feel that these formulas are very, very thick. I'm trying to think of a descriptive word for these, hmmmm, gooey? syrupy? They're quite thick.
I found the easiest way to apply these is to scrape as much off the brush as you can and then scrub your nail with the brush. Seriously. That was the best way for me to get an even coverage and I loved how my end result looked applying them this way.
You can find the name of my swatches on the face of the bottle in my swatch pics. Each swatch is shown in four coats scrubbed on. All of my swatches are on their own, but you can layer these of white or a similar color.
Even though Madam Glam is my favorite gel polish brand, I feel this collection isn't as great as other collections I have tried from them. Don't get me wrong, I do like a handful of these and I will be using them again, but the formula makes it a bit tricky in application. Your coats need to be very, very thin which is why I scrape almost everything off the brush and scrub it on. Also, you need to decrease your curing time because the coats are very, very thin. Per Madam Glam website: cure 3 sec/coat for powerful lamp and 15 sec/coat for others.
