โ€œItโ€™s not about being perfect! And we donโ€™t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesnโ€™t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Donโ€™t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply donโ€™t understand it or donโ€™t know what it takes to stand for something.โ€ (Words by @vegan_boss, ๐Ÿ“ธ via @unmeatfuture)

Kind Salmon – Madam Glam Vegan Gel Polish Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

A lot of you guys have been requesting for recommendations for cruelty-free and vegan gel polishes and admittedly, it’s been a struggle trying to find some that ship to Canada. But thankfully, Madam Glam vegan gel polishes ship to every country so I was able to get my hands on some to review and share my experience with you all!

This week, for Vegan Mani Monday, I’m trying out a summery coral pink gel color from Madam Glam called Kind Salmon.

Kind Salmon – Madam Glam

Color: Kind Salmon by Madam Glam is a light coral pink salmon creme color.

Kind Salmon – Madam Glam Gel Polish

Price: $19.95 or $9.95 for VIP members

Formula: I found the gel formula of Kind Salmon to be much thicker than the other gel color I’ve tried from Madam Glam, Floris. It takes some practice with getting used to the thicker formula and knowing how much of the polish to apply on your nails. At first, I had troubles with trying to get the right amount of polish on the brush where if I get too much product, it starts to pool resulting to an inconsistent application, and if I get too little product on the brush, the coat is too sheer and thin.

It took my second application to finally get used to it but in the end, the result was absolutely gorgeous! I just love the light coral pink color on my nails and the overall look of this gel manicure!!

Wear Test: It’s been 8 days since I’ve applied Kind Salmon Gel Color by Madam Glam on my nails and it’s still going strong! No signs of chipping whatsoever, I’ll update this post upon removal of the gel color.

Update: Two of my nails chipped on Day 11 of wearing Kind Salmon Gel Color. The gel color seemed to be holding up fine but because my nails chipped, a piece of the gel color came off with it and that’s when it started to lift and peel.

Madam Glam Vegan Gel Base & Top Coat Polish

Comments: Madam Glam’s Vegan Soak-Off Gel Polish is a 3 step process to ensuring your manicure last 2-3 weeks, in which, it requires a (1) gel base coat, (2) gel nail polish color, and (3) gel top coat.

Learning more my past mistakes, I properly prepped my nails this time and the top and base coat made a huge difference. The top coat added a beautiful glossy finish to my gel manicure while making it chip resistant and long-lasting.

I also learned that you should clean up around the cuticles before curing your nails and taking the time to apply your gel color to avoid getting polish around your cuticles which will harden when curing.

All of Madam Glam soak-off gel polishes are cruelty-free, vegan, and 9-free, meaning they are free of formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, and acetone too.

Ingredients:
Acrylates Copolymer, Ethyl Methacrylate, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Trimethylolpropane Triacrylate, Rthyl Acetate, Dimethicone, Microcrystalline Wax, Mica, CI 77981, CI 77266, CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77019

Madam Glam Gel Polish

Where to buy? Available on madamglam.com, some of Madam Glam vegan gel polish are also available on Amazon.

PR or Purchased? In full disclosure, Madam Glam sent me their nail polish to try. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions expressed are always 100% my own.
