A polish that was on my lemming list for ages - Studio M (ex Massini) Slamming red. It was this swatch on Scrangie's blog that got me obsessed and I finally grabbed one at Magic Maid's blog sale! Yaaay! :D Where do I start... This is one of the most amazing colors I have ever seen - just look at this holo glitter goodness in the bottle. The effect didn't photograph on my nails that well and it's not as strong as in the bottle but still it sparkles like crazy. On the other hand, this may be the worst polish formula ever! It reminds me of tile grout. It's unbelievably thick, it dries to this weird matte lumpy finish. Here are 3 (!) thick layers of Seche Vite and it still isn't smooth. How Scrangie managed to apply it so nice is beyond me. Next time I'll have to add some thinner (but I'm affraid it could ruin the holo...) and take pics in daylight, to catch the sparkle. Although it's called Slamming red, and my pics make it look a bit reddish, it' not red at all - it's a beautiful deep magenta. :x
Update, 11/2011.: dodala sam dosta thinnera u Slamming red - i dalje podsjeća na masu za fugiranje ali se nanosi puno ljepše i u jednom sloju. Evo i novih swatcheva! (grozni stari su na dnu posta :D)Update, Nov 2011.: I added some thinner to Slamming red - it still has the texture of tile grout but it's much thinner and easier to apply. This is just one coat. And here are the new swatches! (the dreadful thick old ones are at the bottom of the post :D).
