Madam Glam Vivid Purple with Swarovski Crystals

These are huge for my nails.  Thankfully, when working with gels you can adjust and fill the gaps with topcoat.  Since my nails are curved, I had to do just that.  I did this for a special makeup event called PHAMexpo.  It was a lot of fun, and to my surprise, I found a lot of variety in the only nail polish booth that they had there.  It was China Glaze, and I will show you 2 magical toppers that I got next week.  The polishes were a steal, 8 for $20.

I should talk a bit about the polish.  This is my first Madam Glam.  My friend K has been telling me to try it.  I liked it, but since it is a jelly, it did shrink on me a little bit, even though I wrapped my tips, as I usually do with gels.  The color is vivid, as the name suggests, and the application was easy, although the brush is a bit big/wide for my taste.
