Studio M Slamming Red

Just a quick post to show you my latest mani, before I’m going back to work tonight. This is Studio M Slamming Red, a deep, blueish red completely jam packed with large holographic glitter. And when I say packed I mean packed. The holo effect is super stunning, it almost looks 3D when you’re looking at it under sunlight or bright indoors light. In low light, the red glitter stands out most, so it’s still gorgeously glittery even though it’s not holo all the time.

Slamming Red is very pigmented, and I think you could get away with one coat. I did two coats to see if it made a difference, but it’s really not necessary. The formula is good, but the brush is awful. I don’t know if my bottle was a dud, but the brush was slanted! It was really hard to get a clean line by the cuticle because of the wonky brush.

This dries very matte and super gritty on its own, so be prepared to go balls to the walls with the topcoat. I kid you not, this is six coats of topcoat in these pics, and it’s still not completely smooth.

So in conclusion, you have to put a little work into wearing Slamming Red, but the payoff is definitely worth it! I also have the purple and silver holo from Studio M, and I definitely know what I’ll be wearing this New Year’s Eve! These babies are fireworks all by themselves.

Thank you for reading!
Love, S.
