China Glaze: Stone Cold

By Thepolishwell @thepolishwell
Hello polished pretties!!
Ahhh.. it feels good to be doing a proper blog post!
I finally took some time off my assignments to do a quick swatch of the China Glaze Colors from the Capitol haul I received earlier last week just because... the movie is scheduled for release THIS WEEK!!
Gahhh how I wish I could watch it but I think I will have to wait until I finish my last assignment :(
Ok ok... let's not let that dampen our mood, shall we?
First up, we have Stone Cold from District 2 - Masonry! (Sounds like I'm hosting some beauty pageant haha!)

OOOhhh... such a gorgeous black matte with silver shimmer!
Please pardon me while I marvel at it a bit more. This is my very first matte polish and I am still very fascinated by it. I can't quite pin down the look and feel of it. I had expected it to give me chalkboard-ish nails (literally) but it came out looking surprisingly chic and sophisticated looking with just a hint of androgyneity. I likee!
Time for me to get a matte topcoat and... MATTIFY EVERYTHING! *waves bottle around in excitement*

The application caught me by surprise though. I've read that matte polishes dry fairly quickly but I didn't quite expect it to be that quick. The first brushstroke was already drying even before I finish painting that nail!! Being the matte noob that I am, I panicked a little and tried to do a second coat to smooth things out. Of course, I only made things worse. -_- lol! Thankfully, the polish smoothed itself out after a little while and I had my first set of perfect matte nails :D
And just because the silvery shimmers were begging me to let them shine... I added a top coat just to see how they will look:
