Madam Glam Royal Blue – Gel Polish Swatch

Are you into blue hues too? Take a look at this beauty! Madam Glam Royal Blue is all that– here’s a Gel Polish Swatch just to show you how smooth it is! I’ll be using this in one of the nail challenges (31DC2017) mentioned a few posts back.


Wowee! It’s no secret to anyone that follows me or reads this blog (hello? Is anybody out there?)  that BLUE is one of my favourite shades. This one is right up my alley too. It’s dark and deep – a true navy blue hue.

As a bit of a design-loving-nerd, the quest for functional but appropriate packaging solutions is always something I give kudos to. This and similar Madam Glam bottles have a colour swatch built right into them. It makes it so easy to see exactly what colour you are grabbing without having to open it up, or using your own lid-swatch system. It is the real true colour in there, not some terrible replica. Check it out in the photo below.

See below for my colour review wrap up, but first if you would like to try any of the Madam Glam gels and regular polishes, you can get 30% off using my special discount code: BUFF30

Some other reasons you might like to try Madam Glam (from the website):

  • NEW COLORS every month.


Their polishes are 5-free, Vegan and Cruelty-free, even the gels. As you can see from the ingredients list.
Ingredients list if you are interested, and/or a chemistry nerd 😂:

Acrylates Copolymer, Ethyl Methacrylate, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate,Trimethylolpropane Triacrylate, Ethyl Acetate, Dimethicone, Mierocrystalline Wax, Mica, Ultramarines, D&C Red No. 6, Iron Oxides, FD&C Blue No. 1, Ferric Ferrocyanide, FD&C Yellow No. 5 Aluminum Lake, D&C Violet No. 2, Bismuth Oxychloride, D&C Red No. 30, D&C Red No. 34,D&C Black No. 2, D&C YellowNo. 11, Aluminum Powder

They always have some great offers on the site, and seriously, the range of colours and finishes is so huge it took me ages to pick out a few. So make sure you make use of the Wishlist function…!

This gel cures quickly and evenly, and would be perfect alone or under nail art. I have something fun coming up soon! I’ll also have a tutorial video to go with that, but things are crazy and I’m still feeling completely run down (on top of all the other things I suffer with), so it will be added when time and energy permit.

Name: Royal Blue – available here on the Madam Glam online store
Brand: Madam Glam
Collection: Core Collection
Colour (or family): Blue
Type & Finish: ‎Crème
Size: 15ml / 0.5oz

Formula & Application notes:
This is a gel polish from their regular gel range (as they also have a one-step gel line). Smooth and glossy this is 2 thin coats over base coat and topped with a glossy top coat. It goes on well and is not goopy or thick, so you can see that it sits nicely on the nail.

All it takes is 1-2 coats for this shade and you can cure in both UV or LED UV lamps, for 2mins or 30secs respectively. It’s a  generally fast way to get your nails did if you ever need to bolt out the door in a rush.

The Verdict:
A great colour for a range of skin tones – especially light and olive shades. Would look amazing with simple gold accents, studs  & Swarovskis, or as the base for nail art – nautical or otherwise.

I have to say as a first time user of this brand I am wowed. This polish was great, I had no issues with application or chipping in the time worn. And you get a full 15ml sized bottle, so can’t argue with that! I can highly recommend this shade to blue lovers. Again, use BUFF30 for 30% off your full Madam Glam order.
