Studio M

Today, I have 3 colors from Studio M that I picked up last December while I was visiting in Indiana. :)

This brand is found at Meijers.

Left to Right: De-Luxe-Cious, Ms. Haute, and Magic Attraction.

Studio M "De-Luxe-Cious"
2 coats, no top coat

Not quite a blue, but not completely grey, it's gritty, gritty, gritty, but pretty, pretty, pretty! This color takes a minimum of 2 coats of top coat to smooth it out, maybe 3...YIKES! Also it was NO FUN to apply!

Studio M "Ms. Haute"
 2 coats, no top coat

See that awesome purple shimmer in the bottle? I was hoping this would translate well on the nail, but NOPE!

This was disappointing.  All that shimmer in the bottle, and NOTHING on the nail. DUDE! Also, it has some strange glitter elements in it that make it bumpy?!? YUCK!

Studio M "Magic Attraction"
3 coats, no top coat

This has a lot of scatter holo-glitter in a a blush silver base.  This was thick, but very pretty! This is a super sparkly polish, it has the same glitter elements as "Slamming Red" and "Purple Medallion" seen HERE.

This does dry a bit gritty, but nothing a good top coat couldn't cure.  It does not "drink up" to coat like Slamming Red or Purple Medallion.

I know that the same company that makes "Studio M, also makes Color Club, thus a lot of the colors are repeated as well as the names.

In this post by Scrangie, she swatches a Color Club collection that has two colors identical to "Ms. Haute" and "De-Luxe-cious", and they have the same names.   Is that really necessary? I mean... the colors being repeated I can understand, but the names too?...what's the point?

Anyways, the only color I say you must have is "Magic Attraction", but you probably already knew that...LOL :)

Pin It!

Heh heh. I thought that those polishes looked familiar. Two of them are from the Color Club Untamed Luxury collection and are part of my polish collection. :D

Ms. Hautie is a huge disappointment. It has the potential for awesome in the bottle and just dies on the nails. I haven't swatched DeLuxious, yet.

Strange. My Magic Attraction is just silver. And a pain in the arse. LOL

@rock-or-not- The brand is hit and miss, but worth the trouble of looking for them :)

@icequeen- Yeah, it's deja vu, LOL :)

@Megan Harmeyer- I don;'t think there was much "quality control" going on with these colors, LOL! My MA was thick too, but still sooo pretty!

I rather appreciate it when they keep the same names as CC as then I'm not so likely to buy dupes. :)

@KarenD- Good point!

Magic Attraction is gorgeous! But I think I might get the Color Club seeing as I have no idea where to buy Studio M polishes.

I absolutely love magic attraction and covered in diamonds, but I find they work better when applied over another base coat. I usually apply them over my nudes and greys and they seem to be less gritty. So chic!!
