Studio M: Sparks Fly For A Holiday Look

It’s a crying shame that there are no Rite Aid drugstores in Florida. However, it’s a stroke of luck that I have a friend in Wisconsin, where there are RA, who can pick up some polishes for me. And when I saw the new Studio M polishes, I was burning up my email begging my friend to snag me some. I made this one into a Holiday manicure…

Using Lumos Instant Impact Base Coat, I applied 2 coats of  Revlon’s ‘Cosmic’and then two coats of Studio M’s ‘Sparks Fly’…

Do you like hairy glitters? Does this manicure make you think of a big, mess of curly Christmas ribbons?

  • I’m iffy on bar glitter–sometimes I like it, sometimes it bothers me. I haven’t quite figured out how to tell which way it’ll go before I buy something, though.

    • This is true. Some bar glitter will lay down so smoothly; some are like unruly 3 year olds. This polish is in between. There were a few ‘wavers’ in there. (sticking up and waving)
