Smoke & Ashes, boo

Hey lovelies! Who is excited about The Hunger Games? I loved the books and was super excited about the polish collection. Now as I am sure you have heard that the collection was on then off then name changes, etc., but I could not wait to get my hands on it! I picked up most of the colors and the first one I put on was Smoke & Ashes. I am so sad about this color, in theory it is awesome dark green/blue base jam packed with blue and green glitter and a hint of duo chrome, but in practice a fail. Now if you follow me on twitter, I wrote how storing Smoke & Ashes upside down helps the glitter show, which it did and it was stunning until it dried. Then I wore it for 3 days before taking pictures which accounts for the tip wear, but the pictures do not show how pretty it looked in direct sunlight. However the majority of the time it looked like it had a weird textured finish with out any of the glitter showing. Oh well, there are other colors in the collection that should make up for this one, ta!

  1. I am aso glad someone else feels this way! I have heard so many raves about it, but when I tried it in store it just fell flat. In the bottle it reminds me of snake skin, but on the nail, yea just bleh. I picked up 6 others though, all of which are fabulous!

  2. No client meetings next week. Thinking I need to add a dash of Irish festivities to my fingertips. Any suggestions?

    1. Do you want a bright green, true Irish green or a softer green? Also you can do an accent nail with glitter! Maybe we can have lunch next week and I'll bring you some goodies!

  3. I have a darker green Guinness tshirt that I got when in Dublin. So would like something to go with that. I am good for lunch next week any day but Wednesday. Thanks for reminding me to come on back here. I just have too many things I like to look at with my morning coffee.
