I am very excited to share with you all my experiences with Madam Glam products.
I’ll rank the products from my most favorite to my least favorite.
Soak-Off Builder Gel – hear I have the builder gel in “Builder Light Page”. Builder gels in a bottle have become increasingly popular recently. I think the bottle packaging makes it a much easier and friendly product to use. The gel self-leveled smoothly and easily. The gel provides much strength and also structure to what would otherwise be a very flat or imperfect nail, for example if your client has bad splits, pitting, or ridges in their nails. I think the color is very flattering for most skin tones. I highly recommend it.
Soak-Off Gel Polish – I really loved the formulas on these gel polishes. They are very highly pigmented, and achieved almost complete and full coverage with even one coat. With two coats you have perfect and complete coverage. They self-leveled smoothly, easily, and evenly. I also highly recommend giving their gel polish a try.
- Deep Burgundy: a dark burgundy cream with slight blue undertones.
- Fancy Bikini: a creamy taupey nude with a slight lavender undertone.
Soak-Off Crackled Marble Gel – if you guys remember the huge “crackle” polish trend a few years back, now you can achieve the same look and results but in a gel formula. It was very easy to use and worked super quickly.
- Comfort Handcuffs: a purple cream.
Soak- Off Metallic Hybrid Gel – I personally was most looking forward to trying these out, but was sadly disappointed. They are insanely finicky, tricky, and annoying to work with. I followed all of the instructions carefully. After many unsuccessful attempts, including watching multiple You Tube videos featuring tricks for a smooth and easy application, I didn’t experience such luck. I thought these would be a fantastic alternative to chrome powders, but I was wrong. I tried letting them air dry for long periods of time, I tried curing them in LED light for minutes at a time, I tried using various top coats, all of which dulled the finish. If I a professional can’t get these to work, how are you at home supposed to? I had such high hopes for these but unfortunately I was displeased and wouldn’t recommend them.
- Private Jet: a dark metallic gunmetal hematite.
- Play Date: a coppery metallic rose gold.
- Losing Control: a metallic darkened pewter.
Overall I was pretty pleases with my initial Madam Glam experience. There are products I love and others not so much. No line out there is perfect in my opinion. I absolutely love the color guide on the top of the bottles. More companies should do the same thing. Also, I think the amount you receive, .5 fl oz (15 mL) is very generous.
