I am fortunate to work with Madam Glam.

I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Madam Glam in Underground Queen (second from left) and Madam Glam in Cinderella Shoes (last from the left). For this post, I will review the third polish from the left.
Since I did a thorough review of Madam Glam in Make A Wish, I will base this on that. This is Dusty Navy and it retails for $7.90.
Ingredients :
Ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, nitrocellulose, adipic acid?neopentyl glycol/trimellitic, anhydride copolymer, acetyl tributyl citrate, isopropyl alcocol, silica, acrylates copolymer, rtyrene/acrylates copoplymer, bensophenone-3, trimethylpentanediyl, dibenzoate, benzophenone-1, alumia polyvinyl, Butyral, D&C Violet #2, (CI60725)
Here's a look at the ingredients. I find it extremely crucial to know what you are putting on yourself.
Here's a closer look at the color. The website describes it as "deep dark blue. A vintage shade of navy. for those of you that appreciate good old memories!" I totally agree with the description.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compare to my favorite OPI brush, the width and the length is the same.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of Madam Glam in Dusty Navy, Born Pretty Hello Kitty Water Decal on my middle and ring finger, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I love the width and the length of the brush. I don't know if I got a bad batch. It's not straight but extremely bent. It made it hard to paint the nails especially around the cuticles and the sides. No matter how inexperienced I am with painting my nails, I never had trouble painting the sides. I did with this brush! Secondly, I'm a huge fan of the consistency from Madam Glam polishes. They're not extremely thick but I would say in-between medium to thick. I love how opaque the polishes are and easy to apply on the nails. They go on smoothly, and there's no streaking and bubbles. Plus, you can take your time with each nail and not worry about drying while applying. Third, this is a gorgeous fall/winter color. It's an extremely classic color, but I do have to say it's not unique. You will find this color in other brands. With that said, I do recommend this color from this brand. This is just a good brand; vegan-free and cruelty-free. Lastly, I notice slight shrinkage on the fifth day but it wasn't noticeable unless you examined it real closely. I also noticed a chip on the side of one nail on the fifth day. It's amazing that it lasts this long!

Would repurchase: Yes.
