China Glaze’s Smoke and Ashes

I'm not quite sure how often I'll use this polish. It's matte, but there's a visual-texture so I don't know how well it will work as a background for nail art. It's an interesting contrast to the glittery and shimmery polishes in the Colors from the Capitol collection, and it fits thematically…but just because of personal preference, I don't know if I'll use it too much.

It applied smoothly and evenly, and was fairly durable. I didn't have any problems with the brush being mangled either, like I have with a few other China Glaze polishes.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches
