The first two colors that caught my eye from this brand were Punked & Lust. First of all, the names are amazing and I am a sucker for a polish with a good name! LOL! Punked is a really pretty matte fuchsia pink, well that is what you think when you look at the bottle! Lust appears to be a violet shimmer and for the most part it is but both of the colors are a huge surprise in a bottle.
Let's start with Lust... I took so many pictures of this polish and every time I got something new! The formula is a dream to apply was a nearly one and done application. I did use a second coat just to fill in some spots but, I am not sure if that was polish issue or an application issue. However, with the second coat, the polish was even steven and so juicy looking! OMG! I cannot get over what I got for such a great price!
And now, some awesome pics!

Ok, I know what you are thinking and I promise you that these are the same color. I used a base coat with two coats of polish and a quick dry top coat. I love this! It reminds me of flip flop paint! Depending on the lighting the color really shifts dramatically. This polish gets a big WOOOOOOHOOOOOO from me!
Now for Punked. I didn't get as many good shots of this polish but believe me when I say, I loved this polish just as much as Lust. Again, this polish went on like a dream and was, actually, a one and done. It had a super quick dry time and dried to a matte finish! AMAZING!! The color difference is pretty dramatic between the natural light shot and the flash shot. To me that is what is so awesome. I am sorry for the lack of a full sunlight shots, I live in Ohio and the weather is so unpredictable! LOL

So, check out that color variation! Makes me happy to look at! LOL! I did not get to check this one out in full sunlight but I will be wearing this again soon enough. It really is a what I would call a year round polish. It is bright and fun for summer but could really look awesome as a pop of color with a nice winter outfit. The matte look is not for everyone but I love it. When I called E about his polish all I could do to explain the sheen is say, "it so velvety!" And it was! For this mani I used a base coat but no top coat.
I think it is safe to say that I love Studio M Nail Lacquer and I give these two a solid A! Great formula, easy application and the final look is amazing!
I hope you like it! Let me know what you think. (I think I may have set the record for how many exclamation points can be used in one post! Hahahahahahaha! I win!)
