China Glaze Stone Cold

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Thursday! I hope you've all been having a good week. I'm currently drowning in schoolwork (what else is new?) so I meant to have this post up much earlier... I apologise for that!

Today I've just got a quick post for you. I know how many of us are excited for the China Glaze Hunger Games collection. I have an order with five of them coming to me. I knew I was going to love most of the collection and I read and quite enjoyed the books, so it's perfect. I can't wait for the movie!

I love how each of the polishes in this collection correspond to a district. Stone Cold is for District 2, which specialises in stone cutting, according to the Hunger Games wiki. Also known as masonry. I think this polish is a perfect match!

I used two thin coats here. It really barely needed the second but you know when a polish is so lovely to apply that you want to just... keep applying it? That was me with this polish. This is far and away the best formula I've used for a matte. It was so smooth and easy to control, not too thick either. I want to wear it again already!

Also - a quick note on the pictures. I've been taking pictures upside down for a while now, and I personally prefer the way that it looks. But I got a comment a couple of weeks ago asking me to take them the other way and I do listen to what you lovelies prefer with stuff like this. I thought about it and asked and generally people liked the way I took my photos but I've decided, hopefully with the result of satisfying the most people with that, to post pictures both ways. As I said, I prefer them upside down, so that picture will continue to come first, but I'm going to keep trying to post both ways now. :)




Loveeeee. I've worn this multiple times since getting it and I finally decided to try it with topcoat, since the sun was out briefly...



Nghhh. What a beautiful polish. I can't even decide which way I like it more!

What do you lovelies think? Have you picked up any of the Hunger Games polishes? Anybody have tickets for the midnight showing? My roommate and I definitely do!

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!

  6. I wasn't sure at first if I really wanted this one, but it's gorgeous and I don't have many mattes. It's really pretty with top coat too.

  7. I broke down and ordered this one today - was not going to get this or Smoke & Ashes...then I opened your blog and saw this but also the blog on Sacred Ground done right before this was showing and I have that shade too - they are both sooooo close if you just put Essie matte topper on Sacred Ground I bet they are kissin cousins. I am trying hard not to buy dupes or shades I am not really in love with this year and get back to only getting maybe 2 out of a collection if it's something that really hits my heart.

  8. I can't decide whether I like it best with top coat or not. They're both very pretty.

  9. This colour is so pretty! I like both versions but I think I'm more partial to the top coat one. It seems to bring out a bit of a pink-ish shimmer!

    And for the record I love your 'upside down' pictures :D But of course, they are also pretty the other way too <3
