Stone Cold

Hello hello, I'm not dead! Just the crazy work which doesn't leave me any time for anything...  however, I'm very happy to show you one of my favourite polishes - China Glaze Stone Cold

China Glaze Stone Cold

Stemming from the Hunger Games Capitol Colours collection, Stone Cold was the only one I really wanted to get. For stamping purposes mostly, but I fell in love with it once I polished my nails for the first time..

Saying that this polish is special means putting it all in a modest way. The texture is a very opaque dark grey matte (!) with visible silver shimmer. Dark asphalt as it is.. So smooth and easy to apply with 1 coat, that you are going to forgive the tip wear after a day. Will you? :)

When I see textures like suede, sand, matte etc. on the blogs, I always wonder how they would look like with a top coat. If this is your case as well, here it is - Stone Cold top coated :)

I'd say I like it shiny, but I prefer it in its original look - it reminds me of the Seam, its houses and inhabitants.. :)

You got the thing, I was inspired by The Hunger Games a lot! I finished all 3 books in a few days, I was literally unable to unstick :P So looking forward to seeing the second movie!

To sum it up: I fell in love with Stone Cold - because of the colour, name and the whole thematics of The Hunger Games. In my opinion, Stone Cold is a must have, moreover it works great with the stamping plates. Stone Cold will surely make it to my Top-10 of this year!

Wishing you all a good week, and may the odds be ever in your favor! ^^

    1. Really? Why not? Does it change your skin tone to red, or?

  10. Welcome back! =D
    I was also in a Hunger Game's "fever" from the moment I started reading the books. Then watched the movie. Then ~had to get the polishes. Hehehe... Ok, not all of them, but nearly. Stone Cold came with the bunch and after seeing it on your nails I'm sure it was a great acquisition.
    By the way, things have been pretty hectic over here as well, so no blogging for me, but I've started posting on Tumblr (besides Flickr), you can find me at http://www.tumblr.com/blog/maunimayumi. ;o)

    1. Hehe, it was in a reversed way for me: first this collection of China Glaze came out - I barely paid attention, although I thought the polishes were nice. Then watched a movie, liked it, read the books one by one, and now I want all those polishes, lol. You might have heard, but the colors from the CG collection used to have different - much cooler - names before the release, but for some reason they were changed... I'm very glad that you started posting to tumblr! :) Things are hectic for me as well now, but I'll try not to disappear anymore :)
