China Glaze Stone Cold

I'm working on a very long skin care post but wanted to fit another post in this week! This one is a major throwback - I've had these photos sitting around for a long, long time, which is why they look a bit different than the usual nail photos.

China Glaze Stone Cold is from the Hunger Games (Capitol Colors) collection that came out in 2012. Each of the 12 colours released represented one of the 12 districts in Panem. Even though I'm not a Hunger Games fan at all (I haven't even seen any movies after the first one), I desperately loved this collection and stalked my local Sally Beauty regularly for them. I ended up with four out of twelve, including Stone Cold, which represented District 2, masonry.

Stone Cold is a deep, dark grey that dries to super matte. The end result reminds me of asphalt, which seems like an appropriate nod to District 2's masonry, and mining. I arranged some striping tape and then applied some top coat for some simple striping tape art, but there's not enough contrast to really see the design in the glossy and matte parts.

Writing this post is actually inspiring me to dig around and play with some of my older polishes! From the Capitol Colors collection, I also have Dress Me Up, Luxe and Lush, and Fast Track, which I'm tempted to go back and swatch now.
