I am a huge Hunger Games fan... I read the books in a hurry... a day a book! Haha... When I saw the China Glaze collection I could hardly contain my excitement! While not all of the colors spoke to me, 6 of them did! I treated myself to those for my anniversary present (my husband loves my hobby, he no longer has to buy me presents! I buy what I want with however much money he wants to give me lol).
Today I am sharing with you District 12 (Katniss and Peetha's home district), Smoke and Ashes.
Of course, it was sunny and 93 degrees all day... but as soon as I want to swatch, wispy clouds move in and block my sunlight! grrr.... haha... Here it is in as direct sunlight as I could get.
Smoke and Ashes is a black base, with blue/green micro glitter.
I must say, I do enjoy the color. It is dark and gorgeous and the shimmer is lovely... but I was expecting more from the star's of the books (and movie obviously) home district.
Here it is with a flash. You can see the shimmer and the shine from the polish. I did not top coat, this is the polish all on it's own. It took two coats for complete opacity... the formula is a bit watery. I flooded my cuticles pretty badly on my pointer finger. Once I messed that nail up, I learned my lesson and got control on the other nails!! :p
Again, I do enjoy the color, I was just a bit disappointed that this was it for District 12...
Don't forget to go enter my Cinderella/Essie giveaway here... you have until Sunday, 4/16 @ 9PM PST!!
