I am fortunate to work with Madam Glam.

I took this picture from my Instagram. For this post, I will review the nail polish third from the left.
This is Madam Glam in Minty Canvas. Since I did a thorough review of Madam Glam in Make A Wish, I will base this on that.
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 closer look at the ingredients.
Here's a closer look at the color. The website describes it as "diamond blue: wear it on its on, or paint a beautiful Picasso on it. Let your imagination run wild, and who knows what will be." I don't know if I agree or disagree since I have no clue what color is diamond blue.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my favorite OPI brush, the length is the same. The width, on the other side, is thinner. I would say it's in-between thin to medium.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in OriginalFormula X Prime Xcel Base Coat, two layers of Madam Glam in Minty Canvas, and then topped it off with Formula X Shine Xcel Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I'm not a fan of thin brushes but I actually didn't mind with this particular brush. It was easy to paint around the cuticles and sides. I just had to grab more color than usual for each layer. If I went thinly, I would be painting longer than I like. Secondly, the design of the logo changed the last time I reviewed products from this brand. I actually like their new logo. It's cute and it stands out. With that said, the packaging itself didn't change. It's easy to grab and fits nicely in my hand. It's also not bulky which makes it easy to travel with, as well as, put it in your pocket. Third, the consistency is medium. It's not too thick and not too thin. It's a great consistency that you can take your time with painting without it getting clumpy. With that said, it goes on smoothly and there's no streaking and bubbles. Fourth, the color is pretty. It's a lighter bluish-green mint on the nails. Compared to the color of the polish from the packaging, it's slighter brighter in person. With that said do I think the color is unique, no. You can find this color in other brands but what makes this great is the quality. Mints from other brands are thick in consistency or they chip easily. I haven't have to worry about that with this particular polish. The color is good for spring/summer season or at least that's when I usually wear mint. I'm also impressed with the pigmentation. Since I used a thicker consistency on the first layer, I didn't need a second layer but I still applied. Lastly, there's no shrinkage whatsoever. I've had this polish for 7 days and I just noticed slight chipping on the sides of the tips. It's not that noticeable. I just noticed because I examined it closely.

Would repurchase: Yes.
