China Glaze - Stone Cold

I really enjoyed the uniqueness of the China Glaze Hunger Games Collection! My favorite of the bunch was Stone Cold - so gorgeous. The movie is now on DVD but if you haven't seen it there were 12 Districts which coincided with twelve lacquers for China Glaze's Spring 2012 Collection. 

Stone Cold is from District 2 - Masonry.  And though it was released for Spring, it's the perfect color to transition you right into Fall.

Color Description: Stone Cold is a matte charcoal/black with silver shimmer and I recommend keeping it matte for the full effect of this "rock" star look.  This could be described as "street chic" with its asphalt texture and, to me, is best suited for shorter nails.  Stone cold is a winner, check it out if you can.

Similar To: Nothing I own comes close to this, it's definitely a "collector's" lacquer. However, from pics, it looks just like Orly's Iron Butterfly (check out The Polished Perfectionist for a closer look at this lacquer).

This Look: One coat of Starting Over After Artificials, two coats of Stone Cold and no top coat.  (If you need to put on a top coat use a matte finish to preserve the look.)

Price Point/Availability: I believe you'll still be able to find these on line but it was Limited Edition (Hunger Games Collection) and last I saw was being clearanced out at Sally's a few months ago.  Better yet, just check the Sally's store online and it's only $1.50.  Wow!  That's a deal - retails for $6.50+!

Whether you saw the movie or not, this is a collection that you should check out.  See you soon ladies and (gents, I think there's a few of you that are male readers, at least)!  Have a great week... :)


  1. I love this color...I just love all these silvery-gunmetal-pewter-platinum shades, especially with shimmer! I've joined Julep and their shades are gorgeous...especially the metallic grey with a hint of green that I wore last week.

    I would like to know what are your favorite base coat and top coat?

    Love, Lisa B

    1. Hi Lisa! Check the tab above (Nail Treatments...) it's all there.

  2. Found your blog!! You have the most beautiful nails!!! YES, aside from weight loss I love doing my nails, it like my relaxing time. Any tips for painting my right hand when I'm right handed?

    1. Practice, practice, practice! And clean up is always essential to a great looking mani. Check the Treatments and Essentials tab above for my favorite type of brush to clean no from cuticles.

  3. A beautiful colour! I didn't realise there was no top coat, I was surprised when you mentioned it as I thought you had already mattified it! I love it :)
