As I was telling Katie last night, China Glaze’s Hunger Games collection was not made for girls with skintones like mine! There are a ton of very warm polishes that I’m sure would look gorgeous on warmer skintones, but not on me! When I spotted the collection at Sally’s Smoke and Ashes was the only polish from the collection I had any interest in. Katie said something about this being the District 12 polish. I don’t know much about that, I’m not a Hunger Games person, but just FYI!
Smoke and Ashes is an almost black with medium sized glitter that flashes varies colors between green and blue. In the bottle this polish looks so gorgeous, but on the nails it kind of falls flat. The glitter doesn’t show up that well, even in the sun.
The formula is fantastic. This polish is a true one coater, though I did use two!
Moral of the story….this is a polish I would skip! There is a macro shot below the jump.
