Good morning polished world! How are you all doing today?? It's November which means it's time for Movember, or whatever it is they call it! So that means it was time for me to do a mustache manicure. A few years ago I did the Fancy Schmancy Movember Tuxedo Men, but never revisited it since then. After some searching on Pinterest, I found this manicure by Cocos Nails I just had to try!
The polishes I used today were sent to me by Madam Glam! They are a cruelty free brand based out of New York City. After taking a look at their website, I fell in love with many of the colors so I was very excited to try some! The four bottles I received can be seen here. The ones I used for today's manicure are More Diamonds Please, a gorgeous silver holo glitter, and Just a Flirt, a gorgeous pastel pink/purple.
Let's take a look!
- Madam Glam - More Diamonds Please
- Madam Glam - Just a Flirt
- Orly - Liquid Vinyl
If you followed the link and saw the pictures of the bottles, you can see that they are smaller than your average bottle of polish. Due to the bottle size, I was fully expecting the brush to be something small and hard to work with; kind of similar to an Essie brush. Don't get me started on the Essie brush, it's just awful. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the brush was similar to the Sally Hansen InstaDri brush. A tad smaller but still perfect to work with. I love wider brushes like that because I don't have to do a million swipes to cover my nail. Two or three swipes and bam, done.
Just a Flirt is truly a gorgeous purple pink shade. The website says it's a pastel purple, and I can see that by looking at the bottle and looking at my nails in certain light, but in others it's kind of pink. I really like the color and can see myself using it a lot for mish mosh manicures. It applied perfectly in two coats, which surprised me because most pastels I've used take 3 coats to gain full coverage.
More Diamonds Please is just gorgeous. Can you see the holo sparkle?! I cannot stop looking at my nails! And it's been sunny here so they're truly a real distraction. This polish was a little on the thicker side, but it's a glitter so I expected that. It covered completely in two coats. If it didn't have the super small micro glitter, I don't think it would have covered as fully. I read some reviews that said it was hard to work with, but I didn't find that to be the case. This is one polish I can see myself using over, and over, and over again! You know me and my love for silver glitters!
