China Glaze The Hunger Games-Stone Cold

Before I delve into this post, I have noticed that I am near over 200 followers!  Geez you guys!  Um, I am now planning my 200 follower giveaway!  I hope I can meet your polish obsession needs here!  :o) So hello everyone and thanks for reading!

I walked into my local Sally's Beauty Supply and there was a China Glaze The Hunger Games Collection!  I couldn't believe my eyes!  I had just been reading on nail blogs that it wasn't supposed to come out until mid-March!  But there it was.... I knelt down to take a closer look and saw that seven of the twelve polishes were in stock.  
To be totally honest with you, there was really only one that I wanted-Stone Cold. I looked over the other ones, and they just didn't do it for me.  Despite having read The Hunger Games series and LOVING it, I am just not going to get a collection of polishes that I am not in love with.  HOWEVER, Stone Cold is FREAKING awesome!!!  
Stone Cold is a matte charcoal gray. I LOVE charcoal grey!  And since when did China Glaze do matte?!  I snatched this puppy up and made sure no one got in my way! :o)  LOOK AT IT!
I thought it might remind me of ManGlaze Fuggen Ugly. I don't have it or I would compare the two.  What do you think?  I do know that Stone Cold could have gotten perfect marks for application if it hadn't started dragging!!! It went on easily and flawlessly. It could have been a one-coater-BUT THEN-the polish started dragging!  Aarrghh. It was so close to perfection.  I still love it though.  This is only two coats and reminds me of granite!
Of course, I must do the obligatory glossy top coat!
It seems to give it an even more granite look.
Hmmm....I think I know what I might layer over this for my next post...

I got my Hunger Games collection yesterday and I also have to say that this is one of my favorites as well. Awesome color and it's so smooth to apply.

I prefer it matte too! I just had to gloss it though so people could see it! Thanks for commenting everyone!

I totally agree with you! Why getting a whole collection when we are not totally found of it? I do the same thing, I buy just the ones that I like!
I didn't like this ChG collection very much, even though this one is truly beautiful!
