While I don't have the entire collection, I knew I had to buy Stone Cold. I had heard that it was a matte polish, but it isn't your regular type of matte. Put it this way, the name suits it well!
Hopefully you can see in these photos I have taken, that Stone Cold have a very dry finish. It looks and feels a lot of graphite!
The above image is taken of after applying some hand cream. I love how different it looks even with the hint of shine from the lotion, making it look exactly as it does in the bottle.
Not the best of patterns, (seemed like a good idea at the time though!) I wanted to play around with different textures in polishes. The above photo is a scotch tape mani pattern over Stone Cold, the gold is Orly Lux - which is a fantastic opaque gold. If you are on the lookout for a blingy one-coater gold - seriously look into this one. The black lines are from a Hawley nail art polish, which add yet another contrast to the matte and bling.
Just before I decided remove this mani because I thought it was overkill, I added the Out The Door hologram topcoat to see how much of an impact it would make. Obviously it took away a lot of the contrast in the polish finishes, but I love how the holographic looked over Stone Cold! What do you think of the difference? Which do you prefer? :)
