Since yesterday's post wasn't really a post, I've got a picture heavy manicure for you today! This is the beautiful Stone Cold from the China Glaze Hunger Games Collection. While the technical name of the collection is Capitol Colors, everyone knows what you're talking about when you call it the Hunger Games Collection. I've seen the collection at Ulta and Hot Topic, I was slightly surprised to see it at HT but given the amount of HG merchandise they have, it isn't too out of character.
Stone Cold is District 2's color and is a matte that resembles asphalt. Since Dist. 2 is masonry, the color and finish are very fitting. Application was super easy on this despite the thick formula. As long as you know how to work with matte polish and can work quickly, this color requires little to no clean up. This is a nice dark grey with plenty of silver micro-glitter in it. When you add a glossy topcoat,Stone Cold looks much darker, almost black at the base but the shimmer really pops. For the first couple of days. I wore this matte with a glossy accent nail.
After that, I added a coat of the mylar shards (They really don't look like flakes to me) topcoat from the same collection, Luxe & Lush. L&L is District 1's color/effect which is fitting since Dist.1 is luxuries. The combination of these two polishes was really pretty because of the combined shards and shimmer looks, not to mention the way the shards iridescence flashed in sunlight.
