Studio M Sugar Plums and Tinsel Time

Sugar Plums and Tinsel Time were the two other (besides Oh Joy, which I shared yesterday) Studio M 2010 holiday polishes that didn't look like re-promotes or re-names. Sugar Plums is a warm purple shimmer with a faint blue flash that was opaque in three coats. This color isn't very unusual but it is pretty.





Tinsel Time is a yellow gold shimmer that falls clearly into the "not a Karen color" category. It's less sheer than Oh Joy (though really, most polishes are), but three coats was not enough to make it opaque.





I tried a bit of layering over Sugar Plums with the two sheers I got from this collection:



Sugar Plums with (top to bottom): Oh Joy (1 coat), Oh Joy (2 coats), Tinsel Time (1 coat), Tinsel Time (2 coats).


I like Tinsel Time much better on me when layered over a more complimentary color.
