Hey there. How are you today? Want to see some really pretty polish?
This one is like jewelry, but on your nails!
I’ve been itching and twitching to get some color on my nails after a few unplanned set backs. So much so that after a small debate inside my head, I chose to post today without any nail art — just because I couldn’t wait any longer!! And, really, this polish is super stunning all on it’s own, it doesn’t *need* art. Of course, I might still do some…
This beauty is another one of Madam Glam‘s fabulous Cat Eye gel polishes. It is called “Look Me In The Eye“. And, if anyone had eyes this color–there would be no way you could look at any other feature. They are just so dreamy!!
And, like I frequently do, I’ve got a mixture of photos taken in different lighting types: studio soft-box lights, indirect sunlight, and direct sunlight. I just wanted to show you everything!!
Hmmm….maybe I should cut to the chase and get one of those GoPro video cameras. I could strap it to my wrist so you can follow my nails around with me all day — what do you think? LOL
LED Curing Lamp
**Portable Mini-lamp: Madam Glam – NY Gold Pocket LED Lamp
The particular shades of blue in this polish are mesmerizing and the cat eye effect is pretty strong. As I mentioned in this previous post, you can apply these magnetic polishes as the final coat over a base color, such as black, white or similar shade, each one giving it’s own look. On this day, I chose to apply three thin coats of Look Me In The Eye all on it’s own, using the magnet on the final coat. It really brought out the blue in the darker areas.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have caught that I took my nail game out to our sun-room the other day and used the portable LED curing lamp that Madam Glam offers. You can plug it into an outlet, or just use the USB cord like I did here with my laptop.
This lamp has New York City theme decorations on the top around the power button (which is set to 30 seconds). Because it’s an open design it’s great for using when you want to do one finger at a time — which I like to do with these magnetic ones to catch the design right away.
If you cure this polish without holding a magnet over it first, it is a pretty metallic blue as shown on the bottle cap. But with the magnet…it literally transforms into a whole other beauty.
This polish is just divine. It is definitely worthy of this debut as a swatch spotlight! Most of the time I get very bored with plain polish and after 1 or 2 days I *must* either change it or apply some art…but I’m currently on day 4 and have no desire to change it. That’s saying something!! 😉
Till Next Time,
PS – I had this polish in my sights (pun intended) before being contacted by Madam Glam. I really like it!! At the time, I hadn’t even tried out any gel polishes yet, but I’m so glad I have started the journey of adding them into my nail art. However, I realize that a lot of my readers haven’t or won’t be trying out gel polishes. So I feel I should mention that there are several brands of regular polish that have similar effects when activated by a magnet. While I haven’t tried them, I’ve seen some amazing pictures of magnetic polishes by Sally Hansen, BOW Polish and Masura. The latter two are international brands that can be found with through stockists such as Color4Nails.com and HypnoticPolish.com. Just don’t forget to grab a magnet — often they are not included with the polish. 😉
