Nails ~ Madam Glam Honeydew

I was looking for a neon seafoam green nail polish when I stumbled upon this. It turned out more Tiffany blue on my nails, but I still like the color a lot. The search continues.

2 coats - Sun

I wanted it to be more mint than aqua, but not faded, just neon. This wore and applied really nice, and it was loud neon, so it still brightened my day.

2 coats - Sun

The way I cure gel cremes like these is usually like this: polish 1 coat on pinky and ring to flash cure 10 seconds, polish 1 coat for middle and index fingers to flash cure for 10 seconds, then polish 1 coat of the thumb to cure all fingers for 30 seconds. The second coat is applied to all and cured for 30 seconds. That way I avoid patchiness and shrinkage. This time I didn't use builder gel, which kind of makes the polish look more plump and smooth.

2 coats - Shade

I like that this polish is very opaque, and I didn't have any complaints in terms of finish and application. I struggled for self-leveling on a couple of nails, but maybe I have to wait a bit longer before I flash cure next time. This is a nice addition to my small gel polish stash.

2 coats - Sun

Layering Order:
Kokoist Mega Stick Base Coat  Gel
2 coats Madam Glam Honeydew
Ultra Glossy Non Wipe Top Coat Gel

Where to buy in the US:
The Madam Glam website has a wide array of creamy gels, and I noticed that they often have good deals and sales. Kokoist products are amazing for sandwiching gels.
