Mani Flashback - Studio M Purple Medallion

Hey Girlies!!  I am slowly trying to make a dent in the stockpile of pictures I have from the past several months.  I came across these today and had to share!

Studio M's Purple Medallion made its way to me in a swap.  I had seen swatches of this beauty, but there are no stores here that carry Studio M.  I was able to find a sweet girl in one of my nail polish groups who was willing to help me out.

In this shot it is shown next to Love & Beauty's Purple Cosmos which I used as my matching pedicure polish. PC has a darker base and unfortunately the holo glitter is a bit swallowed in the application, but PM is absolutely gorgeous!

: ( This picture makes me a little sad.  My ring and pinky nails were so long and beautiful!  *le sigh*  It seems all my nails are giving out on me lately....just the other night I re-broke my ring finger nail below the fingertip. 
 : (

I should also note that I did not, for some reason, think to put Gelous under the top coat.  As you can see it is pretty bumpy.  I think Gelous would make a big difference.  


*drool* aaahhh blurred holo!!  This polish is really quite beautiful.  Any movement under light and your nails are alive with fiery glittery sparks of color.

Check out the short video clip for a look at what I mean...trust me 100% more amazing in real life!!

Do you have any Studio M polishes?  Which are your favorites?

What are some beauties you have landed through swaps???

    1. Swaps are a great way to get polish that you wouldn't otherwise have access to...I love them!

  2. I'm fortunate to live in the home state of Meijer, where Studio M is stocked, so I have lots of them and have been able to send more away in swaps. You're right--this one and its sister Slammin' Red need plenty of topcoat but they're worth it for how pretty they are.

    P.S. Forgive me if I've said this to you already--any chance you'd consider turning off word verification for comments? It makes my eyes go all wonky.
