ABC Nail Challenge: Letter C

Today I am back with Letter C from the ABC Nail Challenge. I am not at all impressed with the polish I chose to use, Smoke and Ashes by China Glaze. I chose this polish because it was one of my untried polishes and I bought it like 6 months ago on clearance from Sally's, so I thought I would give it a try. Honestly it just looks like I have on black polish, even though in the bottle you can see blue and green flecks of glitter.

I thought about changing it and using something else, but then the thought hit me, every time someone does their nails, they do not always come out exactly how we want them.

  1. I think it's always a little disappointing when a polish looks really cool on the bottle but doesn't quite reach the same look on the nails.

    I still think your manicure looks pretty though :)

  4. I feel the same way about China Glaze, Immortal. Gorgeous in the bottle, plain gray on my nails.

  5. I wonder if maybe you got a bad bottle? I bought this when it first came out (huge Hunger Games fan here), and it shimmered and sparkled like crazy.

  6. Well I guess it can always work as an underwear for something else! But I know what you mean, I am not a fan of blackened colours that actually are blacker than they are coloured. Kwim?

  7. I love dark, short nails. Whenever I have a bunch of breaks I file everything down and reach for a super dark color. Thanks for sharing Smoke and Ashes!

  8. I had the same issues with this color. I love the way it looks in the bottle but really wish it translated onto the nail.

  9. I think this polish is pretty if you just put something on it like glitters or beads or caviars. Just add some designs and art and you will like it too.

  10. Oh wow, it does look black on your nails, but you can totally see the hint of color in the bottle, very strange. Good for you for sticking to it and showing us something you weren't really feeling!!

  11. Too bad that the shimmer didn't translate to the nail :( But black polishes are still awesome though! XD

  12. I know what you mean me too, I prefer when flakies or glitters or whatever are more visible and more "sparkly". But I think it's anyway a nice shade. :)

  14. I see that there is glitter in your photos - but you can never go wrong with any kind of black.
