Of the four gel polishes Madam Glam sent me to try out, this one is by far my favorite! Hot Hot Hot is for sure one of those "OMG I CAN'T STOP STARING AT MY NAILS" polishes!
I only needed two coats for opacity, but it was so pretty and such a joy to apply that I did three just because I wanted to. Warm it is a pretty yellow-orange, and cold it is an absolutely gorgeous candy apple red, packed with various matte white glitters. I had it cold in the house the day I swatched Hot Hot Hot, and I just love that in combination with my nails being long enough, I get to see both colors without effort!
Unlike the plain color I wore on Halloween, this one had a little bit of an inhibition layer, though not as sticky or hard to remove as typical. This one also had a matte finish once I wiped away the inhibition layer which makes it 20 times better!
I just couldn't stop with this one! Hot water, cold water, hot water, cold water. It looks so stunning in transition!
Again, this one did have a thick formula, but it cured evenly, and it cured just fine at 30 seconds in an LED light. It smell a little stronger than the last one, but wasn't even close to the smell of regular polish. Highly impressed with this brand so far!
