China Glaze - Smoke and Ashes

Happy weekend all! I know I am happy.. happy happy happy. Happy to post Smoke and Ashes too! I think this is my most wanted from the Hunger Games collection. I will say, these pics do it no justice whatsoever. It's stunning in person! The perfect black with something extra. I'm not 100% sure it's even black.. it really looks like a very (very) blackened teal base, it's a 1 coater so I will never know I guess!

I promise it has much more depth than pictures show...but here they are anyway!

2 coats because I don't have it in me to do less than 2.

A bit better but it has soo much shimmer!

I've only picked up this & Luxe and Lush so far. Going to need a couple more but in general, not my favorite China Glaze collection. I'd love to hear what you guys picked up!

Pin It


  1. This polish is gorgeous! It was definitely my most sought-after from the collection, too.

  2. This is very rpretty I have it so I'll probably put it on today!

  3. This is pretty! I hope I find it on clearance at Sally Beauty (I am a super cheapo)

  4. The original press release indicates it is a blackened blue base. I love this color in the bottle, but it just didn't translate on the nail for me. Also thanks for adding me to your blog roll! I am very flattered!

  5. My most wanted are Mahogany Magic & Electify but this is beautiful, may have to add it to my wishlist too!
