Hi everyone! Despite my lack of posting, November is flying by for me. I am on the last two weeks of NaNoWriMo (the reason for my sporadic posting this month) and will hopefully have a completed first draft of a novel by the end of it.
It took a little longer than I originally planned, but I have the second part of my massive swatch/review of Madam Glam polishes.

Madam Glam Beyond Gorgeous
Beyond Gorgeous is an aqua and silver holo glitter mix in a clear base. This is your standard super shiny, sparkly glitter bomb polish. And it is reflective! I apologize for the glare, but that's how it goes with these kinds of polish! It is very pretty, if this is your thing. The formula was a little thick and patchy. I had to dab the second coat so I could cover up any bald spots. And as with most glitter bombs, I had to use multiple layers of top coat to get it smooth.
Madam Glam Text Me Later
Text Me Later is a blackened purple crelly. This is a perfect fall shade, especially if you are a purple lover like myself! The formula was more along the lines of a jelly, even though it is more opaque. I did have some patchy spot on the first coat, and tbh, probably needed a third one. But this is two coats shown with top coat.
Madam Glam Endless Night
Endless Night is a blackened inky blue cream. It is so dark, you guys! I couldn't even tell what color it was until I swatched it. And holy crap does it stain! I did a test swatch when I first got the package and with only wearing it a few minutes, my nail was already stained blue when I took it off. For the swatches I used a coat of Yellow Stopper base coat and my standard base coat - KBShimmer Basic Training. That prevented it from staining my nail plate, but I still had stains along my cuticles and skin. Boo! Since it is so dark and pigmented, I only needed one coat. But yeah, stains like a mofo.
Madam Glam So Nude
So Nude is a pinky nude crelly. The color is perfection and by far my favorite out of these four. It is perfect for a subtle or work-appropriate look. Formula-wise, it is very similar to Text Me Later, but without the patchyness. In fact, it applied beautifully!
So that's it for all the Madam Glam swatches! I am going to go back to my writing cave for a few days and try to scratch out a few more thousand words. I do have some of the KBShimmer Winter Collection for you guys and a nail art look too, but that will have to wait!
